    You're stoked bro! Once you get the system dialed in it's amazing! I've never seen growth rates that can match aeroponics.

    Russet Motherfuckers
    Watch out for russet mites! They are too small to see with the naked eye so you have to look for the effects. The first sign is leaves that curl, twist or bend in weird directions. The plant's growth will slow and soon after the plant will die. There are a lot of bad pests out there but russets and broad mites are the worst.

    Here's what you do... Buy a cheap digital microscope so you can check to see if you have russets. They look like little maggots with 4 legs that come out the front that they use to pull themselves around with.

    If you see the little fuckers buy some Nuke Em and spray twice a day for 3 days. Don't forget to turn your lights off when you spray and if you're growing in soil, make sure you completely saturate the soil with water first!!! Let the plants fill up with water and you'll never see any leaf burn.

    I have heard of great success fighting russet infestation by raising room temperatures to 120F for 30 minutes and dusting the plants with diatomaceous earth. Have you seen anyone use this method? It works two ways, one the little guys cannot stand the temperature and even 10 minutes is instant death. Diatoms work to shred them to pieces if as try to run and hide in the great dash to find a cooler spot. The caution is those high temperatures should not be combined with high light levels. The plants should respond by closing stomata and essentially put themselves into protection mode further activating SAR. Leave the diatomaceous earth on the plants for three days, then wash it off with water and continue a state-approved IPM method.

    Great read stinkbud I'm going to give it a try in My new grow area

    Amazing really... I come across this thread and started reading from page 1. Before I got to page 50 I learn of a family member coming down with cancer. I start going through the sacred stash and send off what I have, then I learn of 2 more people within the next 2 weeks whom I could help. I'd better get my grow going!!! I would really like to thank the contributors of this thread who have made me (an upstart newb) believe that I can provide some help to these people in desperate need. I still know very little about this but have heard and read over and over that genetics are key. I'll be starting out with seeds I purchased from Nirvana, Greenpoint, Herbies, and some other place I forgot. I hope I've chosen well (I'll be honest, some I bought simply because they were on sale).

    Again, thank you for sharing your hard-earned knowledge, victories, mistakes, and ideas.
