PHASE 4

APCC Test Run

3 x Canadian Thunderfuck, 2 x Mimosa. Test run for APGC

Canadian Thunderfuck, Mimosa

Day 71 (Week 11)

27 updates

66 photos

Day: 71

End of experiment for these! Uprooting to diagnose. Flies still present. Focus shifting to the APCC. Upon digging up roots appear healthy but seem stalled at the same size as original container, could have been cold or just null seeds.

godsgrower316 It’s Not bad seeds

Day: 67

Last chance on these. It seems the bugs have won, the apartment got too cold or the seeds could also have been null. Feeding one more time to check for life then uprooting for examination. Design of APCC can go into fabrication stage with pest control as a major consideration, should hold up better than tent.

bumper101

bumper101 Try sulfur release. It will kill the bugs. Or diatomaceous earth. Or spraying clove in the surrounding area. Mist leaves with water mixed with Cheyenne 🌶. Those are all ways to kills tiny pests without hurting your ladies.

Day: 63

Removed the weakest one to see how the remaining two do. Let the coco dry out to kill the gnats, have been less since home. Applied neem and castile soap as drench so not to spend more on insecticide. Will leave for the week, shift focus to the frame design for APCC.

Day: 62

After 3 days of being away for Xmas, the weakest of the 3 looks to be about finished. Still not technically dead but very wilted and hasn’t moved as far as growth. Going to remove and examine root system for faults. Most likely cold shock to the point of nutrient lock out. Either it’s too cold at night and in the morning or my pH metre is out of calibration. After uprooting I could feel how cold the coco coir is all over the root system, so that’s my ultimate diagnosis at the moment.

amean0acid

amean0acid Looks like all it needs is water. Try trimming the discolored leaves. Mine was out of water for a bit and perked right up by end of day after watered.

Day: 57

Given veg nutes, epsom salts, molasses, neem w/ castile soap. Bugs have died down again.

2 years ago

Day: 55

Applied Castile Soap w/ Eucalyptus to Neem Oil treatment as had a short period with no bugs but they seem to have returned. Hopefully will perform better. Cold nights and morning may be stalling them as well keeping them in stasis. Still alive though!

Day: 50

All plants seem stalled and leaves yellowing from possibly leaving neem oil on exposed to light but bugs/flies are mostly gone from either neem oil or predatory mites. Just watered and given light veg nutes. Trying to judge from height if they’re stalled completely or nute locked. Growth tips still growing out healthy after just water. Keeping going for research purposes.

Day: 46

Recovery phase. Neem oil applied as spray again with organic liquid soap then added to super juice of all nutes, root stim and voodoo juice.

Day: 45

Garlic spray did not seem effective overall. But decided to transfer to check roots and give room to grow, roots were browning with a bit of smell. The containers I was using were not airy enough and flies of some type have probably laid eggs in the coco from it being too moist. Have transferred, hydrogen peroxide was applied to roots and now mix of neem oil, baking soda and soap have been applied to the plants themselves and growing medium with addition of small bit of veg nutes, root stim and voodoo juice. Also, predatory mites were put in the tent as well. Will monitor for response but hopefully this does it to bring them back around. The containers are grow bags so should allow for more oxygen flow.

Day: 42

All 3 plants seem to be responding well to flush and Epsom Salt treatment. Slowed growth most likely from nutrient lockout and spider mite attack. Top leaves continue to develop and appear healthy.

Day: 38

Epsom salts added to watering after recalibrating pH metre. Sprayed on leaves and given to roots. May help stop nute lock so will monitor for response. Bottom leaves appear to be greening again.

JustANovice

JustANovice May need to get a cheap humidifier to boost those numbers up. Also do you plan to LST?

Day: 37

New leaf development looks healthier on top. Given just water x 2 to alleviate any nutrient burn and stress. Have trimmed bottom leaves for signs of more mites. Looks like plants are recovering slowly, although stunted. Will research sides of leaves starting to appear rusty.

ChiT What kind of soil are you using?

Day: 33

Leaves pruned where they appear damaged and covered in mites. Hopefully this will alter the course for the better and not over stress them.

Day: 32

All 3 topped at 6th node. 1 is lagging behind the other 2 in size but still developed same amount of nodes. Some buurning on leaves, most likely from sulphur in the garlic soray but will double check the research on this. Cut off dead ends of leaves. Applied more spray to eliminate spider mites. Watered with nutes, root stim and molasses. Will monitor for response.

cindyd

cindyd Ouch! Mites suck (and they find a way in when it gets cold out). I now keep ladybugs always as a precautionary (feed them bananas and grapes to supplement lack of bugs) If you have no ladies in flowering Id get a mite knock out fogger, followed 3 days later by a different method (Azamax or dr dead bug). Good luck

Day: 30

Watered, some leaves trimmed for burning, darkening. Spider mites seem to be still appearing, will keep applying spray and hit fan and light above. Otherwise ok.

Day: 28

PH-ed watered, root stim, molasses. All responding well to garlic cayenne spray application. Hum: 32%, Temp: 26c w/ fan off. All on 5th nodes now.

Day: 26

+2

Garlic, cayenne pepper, organic dish soap w/ water applied to leaves forspider mite repellent. Some light nute burn on tips of leaves, bit of browning but appears to be less mites overall. Responding well to closer placement to light. 1 is developing 5th node for topping, other 2 are on their 4th, may give them another week, top the 1st, this week. Hum: 24%, Temp: 25c w/ fan off.

Day: 25

+1

White spots on leaves diagnosed as spider mites. Larger leaves that had largest amount of white spotting pruned off and garlic and cayenne pepper solution created to apply to leaves. Mixing garlic clove pieces mashed, with cayenne pepper and organic dish soap w/ water to sit over night. Also plants moved closer to light with stands and responding well. Ph-ed water and root stim. given.

Nov.18.2020 - 2 of 3 are becoming larger and finishing their 4th node. May have been stunted due to cold weather arrival. Light speckles of white on leaves, will research for diagnosis. Hum: 26%, Temp: 27c w/ fan off.
