It has been a sad few days here at iBAKE University Online Unhappy My Harlequin grow that is in total Veg, has an infestation of Spider Mites!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
Normally I would be sad, destroy the whole grow and start over.....But these are my high C-B-D Harlequin plants for Cancer and Leukemia Patients so the battle has begun.
Since they are in veg, I have quite a few choices. I try to be 100% organic, so it gets really difficult to do a fast aggressive treatment.
My first line of defense is to remove my 4 foot tall beautiful Harlequin Mama from the room and snap her beautiful self in half... and burn the bitch.
My second line of defense was to give up on organic LOL. I covered the whole grow with Mighty Wash and turned off all the lights for a few hours.
My third line of defense started the next morning and involved my grandmothers organic spray she used on tomatoes my whole life. This involves water, dove dish soap, & hot sauce. I cover... no saturate each leaf top AND bottom... Every plant, every leaf! I will do this 2-3 times a day.
This weekend I will move onto more aggressive means. I will totally remove everything from the room this weekend, and bleach the walls and carpets. (not tooo much bleach on the carpets.) Upon going over each plant to access the damage and upon returning everything to the room, I will use NEEM OIL to treat all the remaining plants. This works the same as the hot sauce spray, and I will drench each leaf 2 X a day. I am hoping this is get rid of these pests and I can save my precious grow so my cancer patient can live.
One Love!
