Nice job on the topping, and I've never successfully FIMmed so I stopped trying! These spots on the GSC 2 look like bites to me:

What do you have on hand for pests?

Those leaves need a fix. Any pesticides available?

Thrips maybe, they fly so they are easy to spot. Shake the bush see what jumps out.

Good eye @InTheShed

The light is off in the tent now. I'll have a look in the morning. We have the concentrated Safer's with potassium salts. That's what we used on the Big Devils when they had a similar issue.

That's what I've been using for my aphids this year! Spray on, let dry, spray off with water. I'd do them all every 3 or 4 days for a couple of weeks to break up the life cycle.

Safer's potassium salts will get rid of whatever it is. My guess is thrips as bo said, since the bite marks run together in lines. Mite bites tend to be individual as I recall.

I think I may have some slight thrips problem too - used the SNS-209 as a Spray on the leaves after the lights go out at night. Seems to have helped.

Good call @InTheShed on the leaf damage.

I have no idea what kind of bugs they are but using the magnifier on my phone, I spotted a very tiny whitish bug moving where the leaf attaches to the stem/branch. So, I sprayed all the plants that were in the tent with the GSCs as well as the GSCs and I also re-bleached the tent just to be on the safe side. I'm just waiting for them to dry so that I can mist them with fresh water before putting them back in their tent.

Keep at it since they are most likely nesting in the soil. Repeated spraying every 3 or 4 days will eventually break the life cycle.

Hey HG! How's the thrip situation coming on? I had them for about 8 months to a year. They are nomadic and seemed to travel around my grow room and they'd turn entire leaves silver all over the lower part of the plants. I defeated mine after a lengthy war using iso. GanjaGranddady advised me to spray my plants using milk at first. It didn't work and it stunk like stale milk in my grow room for the remainder of the grow lol. Don't use milk.

Oo man, I am just imagining milk in a 75 to 80 degree tent.

He does that because his missus is in a constant state of lactation with the ongoing stream of newborns, and that's the milk he uses!

Milk never worked for my powdery mildew either, but I only used bovine...

It was in 2 tents if I remember rightly. It covered every surface and not just the plants lol. Never again.

That was right. I remember now. My missus wouldn't let me waste valuable breast milk so I had to use the cat which he wasn't happy about. Is that right?

Thank you, Professor.

No milk in my tent. I sprayed them all with Safer's 3 days ago and I sprayed them all again this morning. I haven't seen any more bugs so it looks like it's working.

Here are the photos from yesterday:

So, the next task for these plants is doing LST on them. When should I start that? I'm assuming I have to wait for the leaves to grow enough after being topped/fimmed before I can do anything?

Can I start LSTing GSC1 now since she's not going to be topped or fimmed?
