    I did have a go under the leaves and I cant see much. No specks of black or white. I think what I suffered was PH related and since I applied the lime to the soil the problem seems to have vanished.
    I am very happy that I saw the PH as a problem and redcat too has told me that its important. My plants used to die from either this or bugs or both so now I can move forward with ease:)
    I will keep an eye out for bugs:) Thanks for all the help:)

    get a magnifier and a light, doesnt need to be a strong magnification or fancy light, then daily check the underside of your leaves turn them over and inspect around the 'viens', hopefully you never see anything but if whatever could be there ever is there, then you will see it immediately and be able to deal with it better

    Ideally the dream plan there is that you will look every single day {often more than once a day as it becomes habitual} and find nothing but the underside of healthy cannabis leaves, if you see anything moving at all you caught it on the very day it tried to move in (or was birthed from your habitat due to favourable conditions for life) and can deal with them from a better stand point than if you found them cos you noticed the adults are flying around in your kitchen :(

    yeah I noticed that this isnt just planting a seed and waiting. Its been a learning experience for me and its great fun to expand beyond mycology. I am so happy I master the PF TEK as well, because I think I will ditch these plans for cannabis now and try again later. I was thinking to revert to mycology once again:)

    Everything that can cause biological issues runs in cycles, so never ever think just cos you haven't seen them for a few days that you won, especially with what you have used so far, things like this is what I am trying to help you avoid

    You want to be killing the eggs and larvae, as every stage from the larvae lives on parts of your cannabis, most folks just interrupt a stage before adult fly and tell themselves they've won but the larvae live and feast on the micro exploratory roots plants put out that become bigger feeding and growing roots.

    Get some h202 mate, best 6 to 10 bucks you'll spend on your grow, it kills eggs and larvae, kills adults caught in mist, kills any caught on plants during misting or any who land on plants post misting, also cleans your grow and invigorates your plants

    This almost microscopic until adult bastard can decimate a crop, they live in nature all around our houses, they are often them tiny flies caught in picture frames n shit like that, on the wing they are near invisible but the little fly likes to explore the plants, the middle larvae ploughs underside of leaves like a lawn mowing care pillar leaving a lighter trail where it ate the chlorophyll it walked over, the nymph lives in the soil, h202 kills all stages and makes it inhospitable for them

    Don't wait until you are attacked and then post up looking for fixes it's a loosing battle like that, best defence is offence, also remember mate the stuff is organic, not certified organic, actually organic, turns into water as it oxidises off its extra oxygen molecule

    Use it every day just after your underside leaf inspections

    The second one is called Thrips, was so infuriated remembering fighting the bastards I forgot to tell you what they are, prevent not cure mate, the last thing you want is to notice you have them infesting your plants in all stages of life because you notice suddenly that have lots of tiny flies in random parts of your home

    Well I just tried to repot the damn thing but it all was a weak excuse for me to sacrifice 90 % of roots to then replant in fresh soil because the soil was NOT good. The entire surface of the soil was so stuck to the pot tha I ended up digging it out of there. I dispensed with most of the tap roots and now I replanted it inside new fresh soil. Either it dies or not but it was heavily affected by bugs, a whole section of soil was barren. But it stank wel, so now I am waiting for my 2nd plant to start growing. But Ive learned a LOT:) Thanks GGTbod

    buds..what are those I just take a couple of leaves and chew them..:p

    I feel like a horse..maybe I am a horse..:)

    Each plant now got its soil rinsed with boiling water and I limed the soil like a boss so

    1. PH problem: Solved ..(i think)

    2. Bugs (I will have to clean better)

    But Ill give it my best shot:) The plants are vigourous and they grow at a good pace. Seems they accepted the new dirt. I must have had bug eggs in the last batch which killed my plant
