    Let's see and hear about your sick plants!!

    ...Every grower at one time or another has to face the stark reality of seeing their best plants growing sick and perhaps dying...

    ...On this forum we will record and investigate various plant ailments in the worthwhile persuit of hopefully helping to eradicate or at least control various pest problems that you or I may encounter today or tommorrow...

    ...So please....if you have a sick plant....maybe we can help?.....photograph it and give us a report about your trials and tribulations concerning the infestation or mould or unknown plant sickness that you are having to cope with......

    Accurate reports should contain as much information as possible in regards to the growing conditions, variety and location of the plant and what you are doing to try and combat the problems you face....

        Great new forum Gypsy, I've got a little something to get the ball rolling, it's not exactly a sick plant, more of an injured one


        Here's an example of what can often be a growers worst enemy, procrastination. Procrastination, aka, I'll do it later, aka, I'm stoned and I can't be arsed, aka I'm busy doing nothing, is what caused this.





        I knew that the plant needing tyeing up but I put it off, because I was watching EastEnders or the Simpsons or something, then after that I got stoned and ended up going to bed. I woke up about 8am and I thought that my better half was up making me some Tea and Toast for breakfast because I could smell a toasty smell, like burnt toast or something ( not that she's a crap cook or anything ) I turned to get out of bed and I noticed that my better half was still there much to my dismay because if she wasn't making the toasty smell then what the hell was LOL

        Anyway, I immediately ran into the growroom and noticed that the plant that I had failed to secure was now involved in a passionate liason with a 1000w HPS, I'm not kidding this thing was just hugging the bulb, smoldering away, thank god it was covered in resin otherwise it might have caught fire LOL


        Anyway, the moral of that story is this, there's a lot of things that you can do in your growroom to prevent illnesses and accidents, so make sure you do them at the first opportunity, don't put things off, especially safety issues.


        I've got another story about a ballast that exploded but I'll leave that for another day





        Word to the wise, always have an electrical fire extinguisher near your growroom and have smoke alarms fitted.
        Give a man a bud and he'll smoke for a day, but teach him how to grow and he'll smoke for life.

                  I have a feeling I am going to be making more threads in here than in the Growers Forum.

                      I am glad you started this forum. I had a problem last week and figured it was my old friend nute lockout. Curling leaves in both directions, along with nute burning.

                      Thanks again.

                          Great Forum!!

                          I am getting these little fruit fly's flying out of my soil when agitated, don't seem to be hurting anything, but I want to get rid of them just the same. My "No Pest-Strip" is over a year old now and has quit working, I will get another today, they work really well.

                          I have a link I would like to put up that tells you the PH of all the different bottled waters, for newbies or anyone having PH problems, knowing exactly is a must, and is a cheap alternative to the expensive PH pen.

                            I use the strips too but they only work for about 3 months and cover only a limited space so use them liberally is my advice.

                            Yeah leaf curling usually means ph problems.

                              Looks like I may just have to kick this forum off. My BLOG plant grow thread, seems to get a good number visitors but only a few posts. I recently had a bad ordeal I think was caused by pH dropping very low and salt build up. But I will go start the thread, sort of a cross-thread but not really, because I just want the opinions of what happened and what I did wrong to get there. I have theories, but I'm not sure.
