    Some kinda caterpillar larva probably...fungus gnat larva are clear with black heads and feed on roots, not leaves.

    They were clear with dark vein when they were smaller. Sorta like a shrimp. I'd take a pic, but they are so damn small I don't know that the camera will even pick them up. I noticed they drop / hang from silk strings like a spider. I'm getting ready to head over to my local shop and they're coming with me. I'll let you know what they tell me.

    Update: Shop guy said they were some sort of fly larva. I can't remember the name (damn short-term) but they look like a mosquito. He recommended azamax pesticide to treat the media, and don't bug me insect spray to apply directly to the plant.

    Looks like the adult version of what I had. Don't remember the name, but Azamax kills them :)

    Pretty sure that's calcium deficiency. Pick up some Cal Mag to use with every watering :).

    I'd say start a regimine of Cal Mag and your leaves will be a much healthier green. However those spots wont be reversed, it's permanent damage. So new leaves will be fine/the problem won't get worse, but it looks as though your into flowering. Next round will be much healthier if you use Cal Mag and maybe a little more N. :smile: Good luck!



    Wheres the Ca deficiency in that chart? :) Potassium deficiency usually looks like discolored/burned up leaves. His leaves look to have little copper burn spots speckled about, with a lime green leaf color. That is Ca deficiency ;).

    My insect damage (if that's what it is) is just starting. I did not see the little insect I killed today in your great pictorial.

    But the leaf damage I think it caused looks like the thrip damage you pictured (but bug doesn't look like a thrip, too big).

    Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome. !!

    Two pics of the afflicted leaves, the damaged leaves are in pic 1, and at top and bottom of pic 2 (all on same plant).

    Then two pics of the little green/yellow bug I squished (got one yesterday and found this one today - can't find any others). I killed the bugs right near the afflicted leaves.

    If I search real carefully I can find a few other touches of what looks like similar damage, all these others are very minor.
