can it be that the spider mites came in with the new light?
it's day 5 since the new light is in (this light has been used "just a couple hours" in seller's grow tent, so it is possible bugs nested in there?)

They probably came in on your clothes.

After my mite infestation, I started doing my indoor work first thing in the morning. Then I'd go outside and play.

What are you gonna do?

Sorry to hear man.

Youre probably better off googling for techniques to remedy this, rather than ask us. While im sure we have people that can help you., they just might not see this in time.

Youre pretty late into flower right? Maybe you can get away without a huge hassle. Maybe a slightly early harvest.

Hi guys, thanks for your response, as always.
I did panic for a minute when I saw it first, but then, I chose to research, and it seemed the best approach in this situation (being just a few days from harvest really), was to take a vacuum cleaner, and to try to carefully vacuum the lil suckers and their webs. Apparently (and surely) this meant that I'd break off a few trichs off the buds, and so remove a bit of the "goodness", but alas, better that than any other option. No chance I was gonna leave them on, especially since I have 6 clones around, who seem to be under attack as well. And also I didn't want to use ANY chemicals on my buds right now, so close to harvest.
So, that's what happened - I vacuum cleaned my buds, and will harvest tomorrow, or the day after.
After that, it'll be fumigating and desinfectioning the grow room, and keeping a close eye on things.
As a newbie, I still must say that I'm very happy with how this whole grow went, I learned heaps, and even with the spider mites attack, luckily they didn't do much damage IMHO. At least now I know how they look like, and know how to recognise their damage on leaves even before I see them. To be honest, I did notice some damage on leaves, but I thought nothing much of it, my bad.
Have a look at these trichomes, all milky and a few amber, so it's time to harvest the babies, yay!
So excited to see how much dry product I'll have. And if it's any good!

Good plan. When I got them, it was during veg growth, right after I'd taken a batch of clones. My worry was the fresh, little, already stressed out, rootless clones. I used Safer's and another low impact bug spray. Neither worked, so I broke down and used Malathion. That worked but I do remember counting the days because it's so toxic. I found it best to do a preventative approach after that.

I use a solution of 2 Tblspns of Lemon Joy to a gallon of water, it suffocates them. Then in a few hours, you can spray them down with clean water and rinse the soap off. I use this on my veggie garden stuff.

In my neck of woods there is no Lemon Joy for sale, so I had to google it up, it only comes up as a (citation):

I believe he is referring to a brand of dish soap.

I dont think this would work as effectively for you though as youre late in flower with buds already. You're much more limited in your options.

Talking All done. Happy dayz!

Ended up with 5oz of dry buds (although 1oz is mostly fluffy buds) AND 1oz of decarbed good trim.
LED Light that I used is drawing 144W. 5oz=142g. Makes 1g/Watt.
Not too shabby for a first grow
And the most important bit - this stuff smokes really good, even just after a week of drying (just put it in cure now).

Fantastic man. You did a great job.

Thanks for making a thread as well. Not too many grow threads these days. Enjoyed seeing the progress.

Any plans for what's next?

Looks good. I'd suggest some low stress training and also suggest keeping the lights closer to the canopy. It would keep the plant short and stocky with better node spacing. I can usually get 5 ounces from a single plant.

Thank you mate, glad you liked it! As for "what's next", since I bought two better LED lights with 500W drawing power, and since I have taken 6 clones off these girls, I will grow them as good as I can, than it'll be a break. I also got some seeds that I'm trying to germinate, so they will spend short 4 weeks in veg, than I'm putting them in the flowering tent. they are 3 different (but unknown which) strains. I'm just keen to see how this will work!

Thanks mate, your suggestions are always great. I'm trying some primitive ScrOG right now, and also some LST, but I'm a bit hopeless. Plants grow pretty fast, so I manage to miss to train them a lot while they're short, so I end up with leggy monsters haha. Will see if I can manage something with these few new seeds.
You say you get 5oz per one plant, what light do you use, and do you grow in soil/coco/hydro?

My current grow I potted up in "smart pots" in pure coco, and I'm feeding them as per Head's formula, found here:

cheers guys

I grow in Canna Coco and use Canna nutes exclusively. I experimented with several different mediums and settled on Coco. I don't add anything to it such as perlite. I think it's a simple way to grow. My plant sees 4 different lites over the course of its life. I start out with a small 32W Agrosun flouro in my seedling room. It then goes to a 125W flouro in a pre veg room. After it reaches a desired size I move it to my veg room which has a 400W LED veg only lite. It usually stays in there for 2 to 3 weeks and then it's on to the flower room. I have two 900W switchable LED's in that room. I have a continuous grow and produce a plant every 3 to 4 weeks. I grow from seed and only use fem seeds. My plant also sees 3 different pots during its life. I grow one plant at a time, hence the fem seeds.

I just started using "smart pots" too. The theory behind them makes sense.

Yes, I'm really interested to see what will the plant roots look like in smart pots. Btw, I'm experimenting with that, too, basically using canvas shopping bags as one can get in shops. They cost 75c each, and so far have been doing good.

Your multi light setup makes sense when doing a continuous grow. And the 2x900W LEDs in flower, no wonder you pull a substantial amount from one plant!
I am very happy with how things go in my tent now, fingers crossed I don't catch another infestation or such!

Have a good one mate!

If you're growing in coco for the first time, you'll see a substantial difference in root growth. Pot plants love coco.
