F43 update: Learning to live with the borg - broad mite IPM grow



With Neoseiulus Californicus predatory mites, better air movement and humidity control and aspirin in the nutes, my Broad mite infection is mostly under control although yields, particularly from the Swazi Gold sativa landrace clones look like they're going to be poor.


http://https//imgur.com/a/7K650 for details or on my reddit growlog. I'll finish this grow and think seriously about next steps. I'm tempted to burn this lot and start again but I know that I'm at risk of reinfection with BM no matter what I do - so we'll see how much yield I get from the scrog. The mother plants in veg are all still showing mild infection and I'm finding it almost impossible to clone the Swazi Gold although my 2 bagseed clones seem to take without much trouble.


The mini-hempy buckets made with 2L milk jugs are turning out pretty well - the main 5L hempy scrog is going to be more productive than 3 of the small ones - they're about 1.6L after the top of the 2L plastic milk jug is cut off. 2" perlite below a drain hole then filled with pure coco. The plants like them a lot once the roots get down to the perlite DWC zone.
