    I have never seen this before. Just recently my brother acquired a rooted cut of GMO from a relatively well known seed maker who has been offering a short list of clone only's on his IG lately. I figured it was worth it relying on the idea that the guy probably isn't putting out anything less than healthy clean clones in order to uphold his reputation. Around 9 to 10 days after the clone had been planted into soil this began. The picture shows it at the most extreme stage and the things you see do not move at all, and you can see how they've bunched up at the tip of the leaf. Before they did this bunching up thing they were just spread throughout the top leaves of the clone and there also seems to be some degrading to the new shoots trying to grow in at the top nodes as well. The clone was isolated before putting it into my veg room but it appeared fairly healthy upon arrival aside from looking a tad stressed from being in the clone shipper in the mail. Any help on identifying this bizarre species is greatly appreciated! Until then she is in the doghouse (isolation)

    @kds710 Did you 100% id these? look like russets to me. Weird place for them but they will bunch up like that, they will eventually get so thick that the plants top most growing tip will collapse. They definitely like some plants over others too, the difference in populations between plants can be stark. I lost a bunch of stuff to these way back. look the same shape and color, hard to forget them after seeing them wriggle through a scope viewfinder. Can you get a microscope on them?

    They are indeed russet mites man, sonofabitch. I destroyed all my plants in veg and shut it down for 2-3 weeks. To say it is frustrating is an understatement especially being this time of year. All necessary steps are being taken including replacing all of our brand new bulbs. Freak from Cabin Fever Seeds, if you ever see this, suck my dick

    Thank you by the way. We only found out because a friend confirmed it for us, and if he hadn't I would have likely still been scratching my head until I saw your reply

    Whether I ended up determining what it was or not I came to the conclusion my only choice was to destroy and start over with how aggressive this shit became. Again a big fuck you to Cabin Fever

    Wow that’s them. Thinking back, if you haven’t messed with too many mites, these are a hard first one to get into and I’m glad I threw them away after a few attempts to fix the flower room. I would only fight them again to save elite moms in veg that I didn’t think I would get back again. Just a waste of money to fight in flower. Have you seen them since?

    They can stay dormant in the grow room for quite a while. Make sure you sanitize the grow room. Leave one breading pair and you'll see them once again in a few weeks.
