This is my first grow journal. But not my first grow ...
I grew outdoors for many yrs then switched to indoors for a couple of yrs.
Due to some medical issues I have not grown anything in 2-3 yrs and it is like starting all over again.
Thank you
:420:
for the platform to keep a journal (very cool)

and for such a well constructed site containing a crazy amount of knowledge.
Also to all the members who were so friendly & helpful right from the start
:thanks:


I would like to introduce you to my girls.

Notes:
Conditions...
Had extreme humidity and temps in July (90-100+ degrees)
Starting August with much rain and lower temps (62-80 degrees)
Fighting white flies & now aphids
Now treating with wettable sulphur

Ailments:
1) Yellowing of leaves with some dotting effect & some not but continues yellowing until the leaf dies off. This started on the bottom of the plant which I know is fairly normal while flowering but now it is creeping up toward the tops.

2) I have been rotating between dish detergent solution & using food grade diatomaceous to keep white flies & other bugs under control but does anyone know if this can damage the flowers. And is there any other organic way of getting rid of them.

Thank you to all who view/comment on my first grow journal :love: Any and all help is always greatly appreciated. :48:

It won't damage the flowers but it can damage your lungs if you smoke it. DE will become part of the buds as they grow and therefore doesn't wash off at harvest. I've used DE mixed in water during veg though, sprayed on the bottoms of the leaves.

I use Safer insect killing soap (potassium salts) that I spray on in the morning before the sun is strong and rinse off the following morning to prevent build-up on the leaves. It kills on contact so you really need to get the plant wet from top to bottom when you use it.

Thank you West Hippie :love: I was having a few issues which seems to have cleared up with upping the nutrients. But the bug problem is on going. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction it is greatly appreciated. I hate to have come this far & have the bugs reap the rewards! :thanks:

:thanks: so much InTheShed :love: for answering the DE Question & providing me with the Safer soap option greatly appreciate any help I can get!
So happy I stopped using the DE about 2 wks ago only because I noticed it not rinsing off the flowers. I have been trying other things but still haven't won the battle. Here's hoping...I'll let you know how it goes. :Namaste:

Hi everyone
I hope I am doing this right by just adding to the thread.

Sorry it took so long to post :(
Dealing with sick family members and then hurricane Henri decided to change its path.
After 2 days of some gusty winds and pretty heavy rain this is how it ended. The girls are drenched but still look good. Au Revoir Hurricane Henri :ciao:

Hi ya :420: Growing Gurus :ciao:

Update
Outdoor Feminized NL
Grown in Happy Frog Soil
Still on the FF Trio feeding schedule

The weather has been extremely unstable over the past week. From tropical storms with torrential rain
and wind to heat waves of 90+ degrees. The humidity was so high this past week the girls were dripping every morning. I also found and removed a few spots of bud rot. Was waiting on the Safers and happy to say it just showed up and I will be treating them tomorrow. Thank you InTheShed for doing the research and passing on
that knowledge. :love: InTheShed Grows Inside & Out: Jump In Any Time

I have a confession: The NL seeds from SuzySeeds I started were 6+ yrs old and I did not think they were all
going to pop. But they did and I had no choice but to keep on growing. This is the biggest grow for me up to
this point and not having much time on hand is making it hard to keep up with the care and record their journey.
I am hoping for a successful end to this grow and hopefully start fresh with an indoor grow for the winter and
better journaling.
I have been following a few grows now on :420:and decided to order a trio pack of
Chocolope, Strawberry Cough & Super Lemon Haze from ILGM. This is the first time I have ordered from ILGM.
They arrived last night. The STC & SLH seeds look fine but the Chocolope seeds were mashed. Sent off a note to ILGM with some pics hopefully I'll hear back from them soon.

Well that is it for now.
All comments & suggestions are welcome...
:thanks: for visiting my journal. Wishing everyone a Happy Healthy Grow! :Namaste:

The collage of pics below is beginning of week 7 and end of week 8:

Sorry about the seeds but it seems the post office has been smashing a lot of them lately! I hope ILGM will replace them, as they were good about re-sending a couple from my first ever seed purchase in 2017.

Plants are looking great...tall, frosty, and packing on the bulk!

:thanks:InTheShed. ILGM did respond quite quickly & are sending out some replacements.
Also thanks to West Hippie for directing me to you for the Safers tip. I did what you said and lil worms came crawling out that I didn't even know were there. :oops: I feel a little better now that I have a solution to the bug problem.
But most of all thanks for keeping an eye on my girls. :love: Your help help is soooo greatly appreciated. :adore: :48:

Safers might not work on the worms (which could be caterpillars). I'd recommend something called BT spray for that. The caterpillars take a bite of the leaf and that's all she wrote!
