Ok so I grew a few years back using only cfl. So now I start my first grow with hopefuly better knowledge and better lights..These are clones from my local dispencery two Sweet Wreck, two Purple Haze and Two Vanilla Kush ( also have some WW seeds I will germ later) These are 10 days from clones in MJR organic blend with worm castings,Spaghnum peat moss and Pumice in 1 gallon pots. Maybe I should add some perlite when I repot?

I am using FF and thinking of switching to GH down the road. Veg is 4x2 with T5"s and using LST method...I have many concerns but I guess my biggest would be Spider Mites. I spray the plants with water and have bug screens on my intake air from outside. What else should I do to prevent Spider Mites?

Anyways thanks for looking and I will be reading more of your journals to learn more,,,thanks

You've been here long time. Welcome back. Winter, mites don't thrive well. So thats to your benefit. You always spray them last week of veg with miticide. Which one is up to you. I am bias to one. Only cause it has worked for years with no mites.

And I like Forbid, also a miticide. I believe that Floramite and Forbid are probably the 2 best out there for prevention of mites.

Wow, i must just be lucky,..have'nt seen a spider mite presently, or last grow, maybe too cold here. But , i hope you kick em out of your spot, they don't sound like much fun.

So your using 2 4ft florescent tubes now, and have you decided what to use for flower? Just curious, or do you already have flowering lights?

I don't have any Spider Mites but I want to do as much as I can to prevent them. I am running four 4ft bulbs and I have to set up my flower tent soon and will be running 600w HPS with cooled hood and 6" inline fan with a carbon filter. My humidity is around 50 is that ok for veg? I guess I will just go with whichever I can find cheapest Forbid or Floramite, So the last week of veg is the latest I should spray them?.. I better start shopping because I was thinking maybe throw in flower in a couple weeks.

Thanks

I kind of like to switch up treatments. I have both Forbid and Floramite. Mites can develop resistance to treatments quite fast.

When I got the clones some of them had a few crispy and or brown leaves. They are growing strong but still have the crisp and brown. I will add a pic next post to show you all. The Sweet Wreck is growing the fastest and it is lush green. Temps are running average 72*f and humidity is 50

If they were newly rooted clones sometimes the tips turn yellow and brown when they are rooting (happens to me alot) They always grow past it though. After they turn crispy i always remove them there not coming back.

Well when I got them I was looking for the greenest looking clones he had but all the PHaze had some brown and crisp . The BudTender said they were ready for some nutes and they should grow up happy. I have only fed like half dose of ff Grow Big with just a minute amount of the Big Bloom. Should I wait and see if they perk up or maybe take the greenest clones from them and try to start over?
