Hey all. I spotted what appears to be webbing on my clones near where the stem meets the root cubes. This was in my bubble cloner and in one clone tray found on several cuttings. All the cuttings were rooted. The cubes are/were a bit soggy. This mainly appeared near the dying/rotting leaves that the clones use for energy at the bottom. I keep my grow space as sterile as possible most of the time. These are my cuttings from madberry and sugar punch, not from anyone or anywhere else. The details: 1. I've only found this in the clone trays 2. All 3 mothers appear perfectly healthy with no signs of mites, spotting, webbing, etc. They are in the same area as the clones. 3. The clones are under domes and humidity is 85%-95%. I spray the domes 2-3 times daily. I spray the clones 1-2 times daily as needed. 4. The flower room also shows no signs of infestation, healthy leaves, no mottled spots, etc. 5. The clones/moms are in coco with perlite, growstone (moms), and cork. 6. Haven't seen a single mite or carcass anywhere, but I think I see eggs. I'm not sure where I could've brought these buggers home from, but anything is possible. I've tossed all the clones to be safe and bleached the cloner, trays, inserts, domes. I figure it's easier to manage a tiny infestation in a dome than a huge one in the basement/house. This will delay my perpetual, but I'm erring on the side of caution. Can anyone confirm this is the evil spider mite infestation? Are there any other possibilities here that aren't mites? I thought it was mold at first near the decaying leaf. Still haven't seen a actual mite. Pics... Eggs?? Webbing at base of clones
Greetings Open Grow, to be honest with y'all I registered as a member and then I read some post here that said more or less you never know who you are talking to....be careful...etc. Well I got paranoid, figured I can just navigate posts without logging in. Until my 2nd grow, I thought I had overdosed my lady's.( Yellow leaves, stunted growth) I wanted to login and post a pic so bad but no. Then after flushing and testing ph run off which I learned from here. My ladies continued their downward spiral. Couple more weeks pass and i Spot a cob web at the top of my boudicaxsilverfields it was all over. Spider mite bastards!!! Ask (for help) and you shall receive. In hind site, its way too much work to have nothing for 420 day.
