    Im praying this helps, i mean i really doubt it will, ive bought 300 +$ alone on pesticide [a years worth] and nothing has done the trick [avid/forbid/go gnats/azamax/neem/yellow stickies/diamactus earth/asprin]
    I hope they gwt to 18 inch soon as im just wanting to get these girls through the process asap at this point.

    You don' need to use avid ,forbid or any of those to kill russet mites or broad mites. If anyone is suggesting that you do then you should just toss everything and start over. Get you a bag of pfr 97. Mix 4 grams per gallon of water with some yucca. Spray all plants from top to bottom, even the top of the soil. It would be best if you could cut as much of the foliage from the plant as possible before you use the pfr97
    This would insure better coverage of a smaller plant rather than a big one. Turn off all fans and lights. Allow humidity to raise to 50% at the leafs surface for 8 hours. Spores will become active and kill everything that it comes in contact with. Repeat this every 3 days. And be sure to wipe down walls, floors and equipment with bleach and water.

    This is the affect of pfr97 on a spider. Dead. When aNY soil dwelling pest or pest on the plant comes in contact with the spores they die. No worries about pest developing a resistance to the pfr97

    I don't know how big your plants are but if there under 12 inches I let my pot dry out completely and dunk the plants in 50 50 99% iso to water mix shake them around and re dunk in clean ph'd water then fan dry it works for me then I use the same mix in a spray bottle and spray the bottom of the leaves for the next few days don't forget to spray Thoroughly with water after if you use the alcohol spray bottle
