Also how old are your bulbs? Old bulbs kill yield and prolong harvest date.

As Scrappy said on the white bugs, those are friendly soldiers.

i used to get these white oribatid mites. they show up from over watering in any type of style of grow and also are found in compost. theres thousands of composting mites and many look similar.

maybe advanced nutes reformulated their bottles that you use? i heard they do that from time to time. it would really help to get a pic of the plant.

I'll second the overwatering.

You really need to let your pots dry out before rewatering.
Not only do harmfull bugs like wet soil, you're depriving your roots also of oxygen.

If your pots take longer than 3-4 days to dry, make sure your potting mixture has good drainage and consider giving less water at a time

1. Check inside your grow tent for light leaks. Just sitting in a closed grow tent for 10 minutes will show you any light leaks.

2. Nutrient deficiencies lead to a delay in growth.

From mid-flowering onwards, weed needs more:

Potassium - branching and stacking buds, overall health
Silica - resin and an anti-feedant for insects
Sulfur - terpenes, which also act to confuse insects
Calcium - for cell growth

Basically the absence of these nutrients in flowering will slow growth, reduce resistance to insects and infections at the same time.

Buttercup, how long have you used advanced nutrients? Two friends and myself had problems with advanced nutrients. We ran advanced nutrients 3 different ways and we all had problems.

Those mite are Hypoapsis Miles... Soil mites... They are beneficial and destructive to other bugs in the soil.


I'd suspect and look for Hemp Russet mites.
before suspecting russets though... Let's see some plant pics. I hadn't read any of the other comments before making mine. I just saw the original post.

Thanks for all help!! A lot of good info here.

I’ve been using advanced for years now. Kinda feel like I can close my eyes and still not mess that formula up

I hope they are the beneficial mites. Maybe I’m overthinking it. Or maybe it really is RAs.

As for my bulbs. Every two runs I replace them. I use hortilux.

I will try to take pics today and update the thread. Thanks guys

Im far from a great grower and I had gnats early on in my first 2 grows. I figured out that I was over watering. I figured out to not over water, let my soil dry between watering. Not bone dry but the top inch or so should not be constantly wet. Its hard to not want to love your plants to much but the soil has to dry out between watering. Write down how much and how often you water then cut it by 25% to start. Stick to it for at least a couple weeks. I would venture to say there should never be gnats on your grow soil because your not keeping it too wet to allow gnat larvae to survive. Kind of like standing water and mosquitoes eh?


Once I figured it out I have never seen a gnat since.
