The Price of Inattention
The price of not paying close attention to your girl
Love at first sight 😍
A few days later 🙂
Showing her sativa side 😊
Looking healthy 😀
Uh Oh! 😮
No words 😩
By the time they were discovered, the damage was already done. She still got treated with pyrethrin followed by a shower and a light spray of insecticidal soap.
I'm considering giving her another shower, then misting her with a mixture of DE and distilled water.
FYI, I'm not thinking of consuming her... but I am wondering if I can keep her alive until Christmas - as my Charlie Brown Christmas Tree.
Keeping it alive until after Christmas? 2 more months. You could just give her the insecticidal soap spray and keep your light cycle over 12hrs (unless it is an auto) and it should make it fine. The picture I attached is from a buddies plant ... this is an infestation we hit it with neem oil and insecticidal soap. No bugs left in 3 days and still produced over a pound of this plant.
Sorry about that, I'm using a pre-digital-era camera. I didn't stop to take a real close look at what type of insects they were, @macky, but I was thinking they were some sort of scale insect. They weren't real mobile, and most were congregated along the stem - and there were a lot of them! My priority was quarantining her in the bathroom, where she got a double dose of Doctor Doom.
I hear you there, @cheezy-g. I've heard good things about ladybugs, and I've read lacewings are also good predators with insatiable appetites. But, as useful as they may be, they cost more than what this grower has to spend.
Truth is, @phil, I don't know what her genetics are. She just appeared in my balcony planter late last spring. My best guess, she's a feral hemp; a present from a bird perched on the eaves trough overhead.
