Here we go 2024

@Mrperfect Biggest issues for most of us outdoor growers are bugs and high humidity late in flower. If you live in a area that has bad early fall weather, growing autos or fast flowering strains would probably be the way to go. Id also look for strains that are more mold resistant. Sometimes it can be a battle getting to the end. Ive thrown away lbs and lbs of weed cuz of bugs and bud rot. If you stay vigilant and have a good preventative maintenance program the rewards can be spectacular.

Hi @Mrperfect ive just seen your message
From 10 days ago
How did you get on.
Are you in a tunnel house?
By the sounds of the window layout
Do you have a de humidifier?
I get humidity issues here in autumn even though im an our door grower.
When its been hot and the earth :earth_americas: warms up then we get rain it can get real humid and along comes bud rot very quickly
I bought some plants inside and the humidity must have sky rocketed over night i had mold on all my best colas.
Im on very little power here so running electrical things can be a challenge as we on solar
During the sunny days i can have a 65 watt led light going and a de humidifier so far
Im amazed how much water that thing draws out the environment in a day.
Both spring and autumn can bump up the humidity if i get rain and often its not the heavy down pours rather light rains that start then stop that can be the worse
After the rain passes it can take a week or so for the air to stablize again.
I dont know enough about it all
My observation when conditions are right for the humidity to rise feels like theres not much you can do to change it.
Fans another friend
Suck the air out of the area if you can
De humidifier to me makes a lot of sense to get that humidity stablized.
Cheers :beers:
See if anyone else can chime in with some knowledge

High,
Okay I understand how to use the bug blaster, root and the mold control but my question is when do I start?
I grow outside in Mother Earth. My plants are 4 to 6 inches tall. I’ve noticed some leaves with holes so I want to stop the invasion before it starts.
Happy growin

I spray mine right before transplant then every other day or so unless Im fighting bugs. If I am then I spray every day for 4-5 days then wait a day and do that again. I alternate between purecrop1, lost coast plant therepy and Green cleaner. I just used that for the first time a few days ago. I had a russet mite infestation on some clones all winter and spring. I think I have it under control. Ill be spraying every other day and more the rest of the season.
