White spots on top of w.w. fem leaves

The white spots appeared about a week ago. Plants about 6 weeks old and were doing great. Sure it’s not mold or mildew. Need solution before something goes seriously wrong.

Need pics so they right people know what it looks like.

Yep got to have pics but it sounds like you might have mites in the beginning stages

Looked them over really close. No sign of mites. Sorry, can’t take pictures. Thought maybe somebody might have experienced something similar. Willing to try most suggestions.

If you go on my thread or type in the search bar , white spots on leaves it will pull up everything on it, there should be some pictures in one of the threads. Check undersides of leaves for whiteflys

OK. I’ll do that. Thanks.

Yeah I was dealing with whiteflys. They leave little spots on the tops of leaves and they land on the bottom of leaves and lay eggs… If you can get food grade DE and dust everything top and bottom

It could also be white powder mildew but just guessing at this point. can’t really help without a pic.
Here is a Support Ticket

Maybe if you notice anything we haven’t already covered, point it out and answer it

to the best of your ability and maybe it will give us some ideas:

ILGM Support Ticket:

What is the strain?

Indoor or Outdoor? If outdoor, planted in ground or in a container?

Size of space?

Soil or Hydro? Type of Medium used?

pH? Of the soil or medium (root zone) and of the water that is fed to the plant?

Type of nutrients used? NPK? EC/PPM levels?

Temperature? Day vs. night temp or highest and lowest temps? Root zone temps?

Humidity %?

Light system/watts/lumens/FLUX/PAR?

Number “weeks/days” from into Season, Vegetative Growth or Bloom/flowering?


Feel stupid but figured out my problem. Vinegar in my mist bottle. Used it for a mold problem and neglected to empty and rinse the bottle out. Hope I don’t have to pay for ignorance. Thanks for all comments anyway. .


Goodonya! …you should probably wash it off

  • best wishes

Edit: still sounds like mold. I think you may have more going on than vinegar on the leaves my friend (I hope I’m wrong), do you have any pictures ?

Glad you figured it out. Id still like to see pictures so we can confirm it

Like I said, it isn’t mold or bugs. I looked real good.

Hey did u figure it out? Is it isolated to that leaf? Hows the new growth look. What is the runoff ph, I suggest doing a support ticket. @majiktoker can help u also

I can believe you looked real good, but it really looks like white fly damage.

The reason I don’t think it was the vinegar is because the damage would be more uniform if it was caused by your spraying. Not to mention, the vinegar would dilute in the water and just lower your pH.

Garrigan (Will) has a tobacco recipe that would help you. Food grade diotemaceous (sp?) earth, D.E., would work.

There isn’t a wide enough view to see if you are in flower yet. If not, you could use Neem oil. Otherwise, go with the D.E. or tobacco.

It also appears to be outside. If this is the case, apply whatever treatment you go with to the surrounding areas as well.

Remember, just because you don’t see them doesn’t mean they aren’t there. The damage is there, so are they.

A pocket microscope would be beneficial…

I’m thinking aphids or white flies, @garrigan62 has an effective recipe for you to use as @FloridaSon mentioned it’s a tobacco recipe, but will banish all bugs


The flys arent hard to miss.They live on the undersides of leaves and occasionally will fly around and land back under the leaves. Try shaking your plant a lil bit they will show themselves
