Found these little white flea looking jumpers in my coco coir ,at feeding time they come from under the surface,and float down till they can go back beneath the surface, scared me , but i read all good things bout these harmless and even helpful little diggers, has anybody else seen them and what have you heard?
they are not harmless and will suck your plants dry much like a spidermite, they are a type of flea. they dont do to well around cannabis since they are very sensitive to toxins.
they will hop on you and make you itch, but better than spider mites, since they dont have the resistance. i would kill them personally.
Thought i would post here rather than fill the already crowded topic area.
So i am growing an AK48 autoflower and i am a bit confused or concerned because the whole plant looks twiggy and it's rather tall compared to my other grows i have going. I will post some pics below so you could see for yourself. The colour of the leaves are all bright green and the fan leaves have gone yellow. There is a lot of curl downwards and upwards. Lot of dropping going on as well. The buds themselves don't seem like they are filling out. I don't know if it's a N deficiency, if i am am over feeding them or if it's an issue with my HPS light.
I am feeding her every 3 days and i use the weight and top soil dry test. All times she feels light before a feed.
Grow Area: Grow tent 0.9mx0.5mx1.6m. I have the HPS 12 inches from the top of my other 4 plants which are around 6inches high. i am growing with the AK48 at 65cm in the far corner of the tent so its not close.
This is what i entered into my journal from my feed today:
Days from seed: 48 (week 7)
Days flowering: 15 (week 3)
Tent temp: with fan 19 deg C without fan 28 deg C
Height: 65 cm
Water: 2 litre cweed concentrate + 10ml proganics bloom + 15ml monsta bud
This is what i recorded with the run off
ppm run off 1890
ph run off 6.8
Here is my journal of this grow for more info. I have added a list of the ingredients of the nutes i am using for reference as well.
Any help will be appreciated!
dude you need to flush immediately slow down on the feed, alot. and raise th pH to 6.5 for a week. you keep rolling the way you are, some plants will thrive, others will die under the pressure. you have to learn to treat it like a weed it needs to search for its food and build strength. that droop is from buildup of nutriends, the rest of the syptoms are from nute lockouts and toxicity.
its an easy fix just seems like you may be a little over zealous. lol but its all good slow down take it easy the bud will come, aim for a ppm around 800 in flower, and you will never look back.
I just flushed her with 4 litres of water with a ppm buffer of 140-150ppm and a ph of 6.3. The run off was 840/700 ppm and the ph was high at 6.9. I need to get her down to 6.5 and do I just water her with no added feed for the next week?
Thanks for the tips!
