    Hey RUI community,
    Trying to figure out exactly what's wrong with my girls.
    Just picked up a couple clones from my local dispencery. I've had them for 5 days and I've already ran into a couple problems. Before transferring the clones to my tent I've wiped the tent down from head to toe in hydrogen peroxide. I've had 0 pest issues as well my previous grow.

    These pictures were taken 5 days after I picked the clones up. (they seemed healthy when I baught them minor bending down at the tips of the leaves)
    Medium: vital organics lite mix from a local grow shop.
    Temp: 75f
    Strain: obama kush
    Growing: indoor
    Nuttiants: no nutes so far, just ph water
    Ph: 6.2
    Water schedule: so far just once. 1 gal of ph water between 3 pots
    Transplanted: 2 days ago into 3 gal pots
    Let me know if I left out any crucial information.

    If anyone can help me diagnose what's wrong with the girls or point me in the right direction it would be greatly appriciated!

    Had them early last month. I did 2 applications of Spinosad. I used a generic product, rather than Monterey. It’s a little cheaper. Sprayed first application, drenched and sprayed second time 4 days later. Stressed plants some. Needs a dose of nitrogen

    The 1st pic looks like a trip
    The adult stage of the bug, will leave a silver film on the top of the leaf. I’m not seeing that, so I’m guessing they are in the soil.
    I would dust the plants with DE or spray with something. Problem is they stay under the leaf when not eating , so make sure you spray under the leaves .
    You can top dress with DE but the DE will only kill the adults, the larva are soft body.
    Also they love love love moist soil, so let them dry a bit, but never let them dry out.

    I run nano mites (pop poppers) they hunt out any soft body bug in the dirt, n eat them inside out.

    Next watering check the run off for little bugs, I also watch the top to see if any bugs
    Get pushed up to the top.

    I had them once, now I use the nanos during the whole grow, and spray bug b gone in veg .

    They could have come from where u got your clones or in your soil or from outside.

    Even when I have no signs of bugs I keep up on everything thing, an oz of prevention is worth a pound of cure .

    Spinosad killed them all in one thorough application for me.

    Trouble is it took 2 weeks to come over the pond! Count yourself lucky lol

    Thanks for all the help guys I picked up some Dr zhymes gonna try and do a dip and soil treatment. Hopefully this will take care of them if not I'm going to have to start from scratch again.
