Spider mites- green cleaner burn to almost harvest

So I started having these white dots on my leaves but didn’t see any mugs on the bottom. Honestly I thought it was my LED being to close and bleaching the leaves. It wasn’t until last week I saw it got worse and I looked under the leaves and saw some bugs. Two days ago I sprayed it with green cleaner while the lights were off. Today my leaves came out looking pretty rough. My crop is at Day 48 and I believe it has 2-3 more weeks left. Is it still salvageable?

Well you already know you’ve got a bad infestation. I read about Green Cleaner, I would recommend that you follow the directions exactly for best chance of saving the plant (and your going to wanna look up bud washing when you harvest too)

To tell you the truth Jim I’ve had mites twice back in the last century and I lost both whole Gardens to them. However there weren’t as many products then and they weren’t easily available in the eighties and nineties either, so maybe things would be different now but I am not the best one to tell you how to defeat mites cuz I haven’t figured it out yet, just that nobody else was repling and so I took a look at the green cleans website to try to help you best manage this issue.

I would follow directions on the product exactly and where they say every 1-2 days, if the plant can stand it I would make it one day and wouldn’t wait two days!

Initial drench………….. 2 oz per gallon – For Spider Mites & Their Eggs

2. Secondary application … 1 oz per gallon – Apply every 1-2 days

3.Weekly Maintenance …. 1/2 per gallon – Once or Twice a week

4.For Powdery mildew… 1/2 oz per gallon- Apply every 1-2 days

You’re going to need to do a big cleanup of your area after harvest, use bleach or maybe they have something specific for mites now but get as strong as you can get, apply several times & days apart before starting your next plant because I shut down for months and cleaned and cleaned, but as soon as I started again they were right back again?! Best of luck!

Hey thanks dude! I definitely will do a huge clean up. Here’s the deal. I have a shit ton of houseplants, will that effect me in a negative way? I haven’t had any infestations on any of my other plants.

Yeah I’m definitely going to wash them. Thanks for your help again

    Has anyone tried using Old Stage Green Cleaner for mites and powdery mildew? It’s made by Old Stage Garden Products.

    The reason I’m asking is because I couldn’t find a lot of info on it, I found a few threads here and there on different forums and people seem to really like it. Just wondering if anyone has used this product?

    I found spider mites on the 4th of July and it being a holiday the hydro shop closed early so I couldn’t get SNS. I remembered I had gotten a free sample of this green cleaner so I decided to give it a try. It worked surprisingly well actually, next day I couldn’t find a single spider mite. It’s been 4 days now and my plants are still looking good.

    Active ingredients:
    Corn Oil (Non GMO) 15%
    Soybean Oil (Non GMO) 15%
    Inert ingredients:
    Water, Soapbark, Isopropyl Alcohol, Sodium Chloride, Magnesium Sulfate 70%
