    Basically, I'm growing a couple plants on my balcony in the south of Spain, it's been growing for around a month and a week now (not sure what seed it is and still unaware of gender). It warms up during the day 18-23c 65f - 75f and is normally cold at night between 6c - 10c 43f - 50f. Its going to be warmer in about a couple weeks time. However, I've noticed some small white spots on my leaves and I was just wondering what it could be? Could it be spiders? if so how can I stop them?

    (Ive attached two photos, 1 of the white spot and another of the plant (how does she look after 1month and 1 week? There are more spots on the lower leaves but I couldnt really get a picture of them) P5010177.jpg P5010178.jpg
    Many thanks!

    Could be water spots, but your plant looks pretty nice overall so I wouldn't worry too much.

    Yeah that's not too bad if u start seeing a bunch of small white freckles on the leaves then its definitely spidermites.. U should be able to see small black dots on the underside of the leaves.. If u do just get some azamax and spray em down

    Looks like mine did after a morning mist stayed too long. Droplets of water stayed on the leaves, and when the sun came up it uses the water as a magnifier and burns the leaves. Do you water during the heat of the day? Maybe some water was left on the leaves?
