    hey, btw. originally I tried to post this in another thread... something went wrong, but,.. whatever
    well, I did not find any living bugs on them... I will continue my search, hopefully I'll find some.. on which part of the plant should I look for them?

    don't know exactly what to do, I could use some pyrethrine on them (spruzit), still got it here, but I am about to switch the next few days to 12/12, will Phytoseiulus persimilis do the job also on broad/cyclamen mites?

    Possible egg in the fourth picture, upper left quadrant. Can't be certain. Eggs are found only on bottoms of leaves. You will be lucky if it's TMV, which I doubt, because plants usually grow out of TMV with no damage to final product.

    hey!
    seems like you will not write anything more in here, so I thought I can post some pictures of my problem aswell.

    looks like yours, and I also checked with microscope, and discovered some of those white/clear balls, I think those are just very tiny trichomes, but they are all over the leaves, both sides. also on the fan leaves, never thought there were trichomes!

    new growth seems to be tiny,( tiny thin leaves) veg is slow, but its also a indica (cronic in scrog)
    it first showed up on one plant, with that half leaf mutation, thought it was genetic. then it spread.. another plant became brown spots on leafes, now all plants begin to show those light green leaf mutations.
    hope its not tomato mosaic virus, or tmv which would be very bad..
    lets take a look on it.

    I would not use an atomizer to spray the biowar. Spores and Bacteria are alive and delicate.

    Thanks Dude, I did entertain that thought, they are definitely hunters and notsomuch the grazing type from what I see. What ever they are neem is a joke...so far. Laying down cayenne powder and cinnamon for the hell of it. I thought they were the neo mega Borgs but not...yet.

    Beneficial mites

    I'm no broad mite specialist (But should be by now)..hehe.. But that actually looks like a "Beneficial mite" as The ones I had called "Swirskii mites" purchased as Predator mites or other similar mites. The reason for this is the long front antenna (I don't think the bad mites have this long front antenna) is the way I could tell the difference when I first looked at them crawling on my plants. Now, Like I said I could be way wrong about this. GL.

    og, I had problems with the same bugs you are showing in your video. Mine always hung around in the root zone and on the outside/rim of the container. At one point during the summer I thought I might have seen a few migrating up the plant. However, at that time I had the tiny/micro white/translucent variety you are dealing with, and a larger reddish variety.

    The last time I tried I only saw the micro variety. Nonetheless the symptoms were the same: decent growth during veg/early flower,stalling by around week 3, not much visible damage to leaves, a random flower or two near the bottom seemed to have prematurely dried pistils. The buds would continue to progress very slowly and not swell much. I ended up chopping and cleaning and assembling an arsenal to battle Root Aphids.

    I still have not resumed trying because I am unsure of what exactly I am battling here. Like I said mine seemed to hang around on the outside of the pots mostly, the only reason I could see them was because my pots are black and I could see the light colored fleck movement on them. I'm not sure exactly what I am going to do if I have these damn mites. The only thing I can do is treat for BM and Root Aphids.

    Shitty thing is I dont trade clones, and am not remotely near Cali. So damn frustrating. Please continue to post what you determine, because I am about 90% sure I am battling the same organism as you. Folks in the RA thread have proclaimed them to be beneficial mites. I got news though, they did not benefit my garden.

    Thank you for your time and knowledge,

    BP

    hey everyone, I have been dealing with sick plants for over a year now, and finally decided to scrap all my genetics, redo entire grow area, disinfect,etc.

    I thought i was dealing with a virus and the micro version of root aphids. I would see them on the small new little roots at the base of the plant if i looked with a usb scope, but couldnt see them with the naked eye.

    After reading this thread I am starting to think that I have some type of mite also. Unfortunately i have no plants left to check if they are on the leaves or buds, and i didnt think to check for microscopic bugs on the plant.

    I do remember a few plants would have buds with small clusters that had died and dried out before the plant was picked. Also I tried every treatment for root aphids but could not kill them.

    Here is a video of one i was able to capture on video, this was on the crown of the plant.
    Does this look like the mite you guys are seeing?

    I think we have the same critter, fast and mean. I neemed em and they just laugh @ me, on with their day. Content with root life the leaves not so much.

    Gonna try some Kontos + SM90 in a few days, thoughts on that one gents? I got RA and possibly mites so I'm treating all my mums hard.

    Wow i would of never guessed RETRO is way smarter then Purdue University "these almost microscopic creatures are in the tarsonemid, or thread-footed, mite group along with the similar cyclamen mite."

    Dont let him see that he'll have a heart attack and call everyone at Purdue a dumbass.

    I'm not exactly sure what Yucca I have as it was sent to me by a Oregon company as a "free-be" for trials that supplies the growers up there. It's a small bottle of dark slightly heavy (like oil) liquid with some numbers on the bottle and the words "Yucca extract".

Then I let the jar sit for about ten min's to let the talk settle. I then add about one half to one teaspoon of Yucca extract to the one gallon pump sprayer and slowly pour the OGB mixture out of the jar into the sprayer until about 90% is in the sprayer leaving the talk powder residue in the jar. Now that I have been using the "Yucca extract" it does something that makes the plants show no "talc residue" at all..and I can't explain this I only know what has happened. As far as empirical evidence of mite death I only know what my plants look like .And I see no evidence of mite eggs or mites with my 500X digital microscope.When I post the next pictures of the plants that the mothers had BM damage from people can judge for themselves.I would add ,I don't wait for BM symptoms. I am very pro-active now that I know my enemy. I have a regular routine of heat, and OGB and Aspirin.And it would appear conclusive that the Forbid is in the rear view mirror for good as it has been way over a year now without using it.

    Just got a new scope and took some images for y'all to look at. Whatever is on the leaves definitely aren't moving around on there since I sprayed with NukeEm and deloused them with diatomaceous earth. These plants are my experiment plants in quarantine in the kitchen until I can solve this puzzle.. Thoughts?
