Help identify issue?


Not quite sure what to make of these little spots. Only a few but obviously want to get ahead of any issues before it becomes a major problem. Does this look like the impact or spider mites? Also started increasing nutrients lately so not sure if it could just be nutrient burn.

Plants are about 6 weeks. These are grown in soil and spend days outside but come in at night.

I’m a total noob, so any insight/ideas/assistance would be greatly appreciated :slight_smile:

Have you checked the underside of the leaves for spider mites? If it’s them, they usually leave tiny eggs underneath.

Vessels: 1.5 gallon plastic pots for now

Thanks @Baz4 i did not see evidence of mites or eggs under the leaves but going turn some ladybugs loose on them tonight and then treat with an organic 3in1 spray after they’ve left.

Overall plants seem pretty healthy, its just a few leaves. Will post photo of the whole plant in a moment.

Thanks again, appreciate the input! :slight_smile:

If someone with more experience doesn’t chime in before long I’ll tag some people. Could be minimal as genetics, but that’s usually just off colors

I always forget people. But sure someone’s on and can give more precise information.


My first thought would be check for bugs as well.


I concur.


It’s most likely thrips.


That’s what came to mind, whenever I see those silvery marks on the leaves - usually thrips.
