First ever plant, having all kinds of issues.

Recommended Posts

I'll post a few pics and see if anyone can help with advice. I am dealing with heat issues the best I can, I know it's getting too hot in there and I also have a bug issue of somekind. They are tiny tiny thin orange things and move very slow. I've been washing every dark period with warm soapy water but thats all so far. I am about to get some CalMag and nitrogen and potassium boost tomorrow to deal with the deficiency I THINK I have. Thanks in advance.

First thing check your ph,second thing feed water at 18c no more,there is way too much soap in that mixture, your suffocating them , try that

I just posted in another thread homemade remedies and how to make themGarlic-Based Insecticide

Although garlic may actually be an insect repellant rather than an insecticide, it is still quite effective. Garlic is ideal for at least slowing down an insect infestation. Spray as needed on infested plants.


To make a garlic spray insecticide puree two bulbs (not cloves) of garlic in a blender with a little water. Leave it overnight, strain, and add ½ cup of vegetable oil, 1 tsp of mild soap and enough water to fill a quart. Mix 1 cup of this mixture with another quart of water. Spray as needed.


Chili-based Insecticide

Like garlic, chili pepper may be more insect repellent than anything else. Use it in your garden, but remember to wear gloves and protect your eyes, nose, and mouth. The spray won’t harm you, but it might hurt.


Create homemade chili spray out of fresh chili peppers, or use chili powder. If using powder, mix 1 Tbl of the powder with a few drops of liquid soap and 1 quart of water. From fresh peppers, puree ½ cup of peppers in a cup of water, add a quart of water and bring to a boil. Let the mixture cool, strain out the peppers and add a few drops of soap to the liquid. Your homemade spray is safe to spray directly on your plants.


Diatomaceous Earth

Fossilized algae buried deep in our earth is a natural resource that also makes a wonderful insecticide. Unlike other materials, diatomaceous earth does not poison or suffocate insects. It does something entirely different – it dehydrates them.


Diatomaceous earth is easy to find in most garden stores, but it’s generally sold in bulk. You won’t need much to get the job done. To use it, simply dust the area around your plants and on the plants as well. It will keep away insects, as well as snails and slugs. Don’t forget to reapply after it rains.


All-in-one insecticide

Sometimes, a mixture of a few natural remedies makes the best spray.


To create an all-in-one insecticide, puree 1 garlic bulb, a small onion and a teaspoon of cayenne pepper powder. Let the mixture sit – ideally for an hour. Strain the material and add 1 Tbl of liquid soap. Do not dilute. Spray on upper and undersides of leaves. Store in the refrigerator for up to a week.


Tomato Leaf Insecticide

Although hardly tried-and-true, tomato leaves may actually be a natural insecticide. As a member of the nightshade family, they contain alkaloids that keep aphids (and other insects) at bay.


To make tomato leaf insecticide, steep 2 fresh tomato leaves in a quart of water overnight. Strain the material and spray the liquid directly on your plants’ leaves.

Hope this helps

I dont normally give them that much i only went crazy that once. Thanks. My PH is 5.9 - 6.0 i check it all the time. They are in "bubbleponics" with a top feed on 15min/hr and then water in the reservoir is max 28°c and the room is anywhere up to 32°c I realise this is hot but there's nothing i can do about it. It's been living happily in these temps its whole life with issues only last few days. Its 42 days old.

At 28 c your water is carrying very little oxygen and bacteria will flourish

18c is the temperature which water can carry the most oxygen, it doesn't matter how much u are putting in the water simply can't carry it

If your plant is healthy high temps should be ok but not for your water

If u want to continue this type of grow you need to address this promptly
