RE: Questions for fellow growers

in HiveGarden4 months ago

Spider mites are always around and you cannot get rid of them. Thing is, they can only successfully attack stressed plants. This easily happens to plants in pots because the roots are generally subjected to water stress. Besides lack of water, hot dry conditions and lack of airflow is the other cue for mites to get set up on the plants and that usually is the case for indoor plants. Misting them is usually the answer. For you, it has to be larger pots and more frequent watering

Thank You for the helpful response. It is hot and dry here for sure. I started misting right away. Blasting most of them off with my water bottle sprayer.
