Give it lots of air flow
You said toilet bleach?Hey 420! Back again after a busy week with much drama lol. We'll it seems that we had a couple issues which were pretty serious indeed. A combination of fungus gnats and root rot (most likely spread by the gnats) very nearly decimated my garden. We lost 2 plants which were the Romberry and the massive Malana Cream (which I'm telling myself was a male) to the rot. They were completely collapsed and limp on the surface of the coco like they were a day or two into the drying process. I considered them gone as their roots were just slush. The rest weren't much better and all had begun to go limp. I have been using lots of H2O2 and it just isn't working. There are too many adult gnats surviving and laying eggs as soon they can. There was hundreds of them swarming in the room. I've ran almost 5ltr of peroxide through the little pots that most of the plants have been in and they just come back. It wasn't helping the rot either. Things were looking bad and as I thought that I had lost the whole grow I decided to flush them with toilet bleach lol. a 1/10 mix of bleach and water. The bubbles! lol. My grow room smells very clean now and guess what? The plants stopped dying. About 24 hours later they all began to stand up again and stopped losing leaves as quickly. I waited a couple of days and they still looked alive so yesterday I put them into 5ltr pots with fresh coco. I am just waiting for the first sign that they are growing again and then I will flip to flower..
The Malana's where the worst effected out of these. They lost all of their large fans, shrivelled up and leant over. Now they are stood up again.....
The Pineapple Express looks better than the rest but also went pretty limp. She had no white roots left and had stopped growing. I think this one will bounce back first, that is if they do bounce back at all....
The Crumbled Lime had noticeably stopped growing but rather surprisingly her roots were still at least half white. She was on the turn though and probably wouldn't have held out much longer without intervention. Her stems went really dark purple and she bagan to "claw". She was potted at the bottom of an 11tr fabric pot to try and get her a little lower but I dont think it makes much difference lol. I'm going to have to grow her wide or the others had better be pretty tall....
Maybe a save. Still awaiting some positive results. I would like some mosquito dunks but they ain't cheap. Had anyOw! Good save on the gnat bait, I mean garden!
Nice looking hash too
Yep. Bleach which is marketed as being used to clean toilets. Smells like lemonYou said toilet bleach?
One thing I couldn't find out was how much to use. One person said that a couple drops from a pipette per gallon was enough and another said as high as 1/3 bleach to water. I went with 1/10 which was still an incredibly strong mix. Do you know of a sensible ratio for future reference?I’ve heard of people using it for root rot. That’s why I don’t worry about using tap water lol
Thanks Sunny! Good to hear from you. We're all good hear. The weather is in my favour again which is great for the drying buds and also my nerves lol. Hopefully there should be some dried flower pics coming up tomorrow.Aloha Professor!!
Congrats on the harvest! Your photos are stunning and should be made into a calendar. I’d buy a few! Lol Awesome review on the crumbled lime too! I always enjoy getting caught up in here.. solid break down of the plants with photos.
That hash looks killa too!!I hope you and the ohana are well. Have blessed day!
Don't worry. it's not the first time its happened and certainly won't be the last. Last year we had a serious thrip invasion, this year its gnats. I preferred the thrips lol.Holy shit Prof! Very sorry to hear about the gnats/rot. I hope the survivors recover!
The cherry garcia seed turned black after 4 days, I took some tweezers and gently peeled back the seed casing, there was a small plant looking like it wanted to break thru the seed but just wasn’t strong enough, I put it back on the pebbles after removing the seed, we’ll see if it lives or dies. The GMO however, is alive and very well, hell, I already have it in my cloner it’s doing soo well. I was digging thru my seed bank and came across some old blue dream seeds, I threw in 2 of those, and then I found seeds from my Jack Herer run that I did a few years back, I’d love to get that strain back as it was my best grow yet by far. Time will tell with those on if they live and if they’re female, fingers crossed!!Jealous lol. Not heard of Cherry Garcia but GMO is something I really want to grow. Good luck with those two
I saw the foam. I gave up trying to flush it out and let it evaporate instead.I’ve been using bleach in my garden for half a decade as a preventative. Has worked wonders and is relatively cheap compared to the other options. I use a few drops per gallon as ive found using too much creates foam especially if using in an aeroponic cloner.
Jack Herer is on my "yet to grow" list but I have done a few Blue Dreams which were some nice plants.
