Indoor growing however has it's UPS and downs.The grower who has a sanitary grow room and proper ventilation and feeds their plants properly should enjoy the UPS.
The Best quality Buds are grown Indoors.They have been fed to perfection.The best will be free of Pests and Molds.The taste will be superb with no residual taste.
Mites are a Pain in the Ass to any grower who has had them.Thy are hard to control and hide on clothes.That is why a clean garden concept must be respected.Changing clothes before and after keeps pests off other gardens.
The Best measure that can be taken to assure a pest free environment is too have the area around the grow as sterile as possible.Mold is a small spore that hangs in the air.Mold will live in a crack waiting for conditions to be optimum.Then mold does it's evil.
Mites can be effectively stopped from the beginning.It is very Important to have a ventilation system that circulates and completely replaces the air every few minutes with filtered air from the outside.
There are growers who have CO2 cycles with the ventilation just circulating and no Refresh.Then they have the refresh cycle when they flush the Stale CO2 air out and cycle clean filtered air for awhile and then close up and fill the Camber with CO2 and have a saturation period.The Most important issue to remember is to filter the air from outside completely.This can be done using six inch ducts and four inch ducts.
Make wooden filter boxes from wood.Place a Duct couplers on each end.Place at least four filters in the Box.When you change the filters you will see the FILTH that is in the air.WE breath this filth but we do not want to feed this shitty air to the plants.
I have been seeing some real bad advice on the Internet that says it is OK to use AVID on Cannabis plants.HELL NO it is Foolish!!
AVID is a POISON for Christs sake.
The CANNA CARE website is operated by a FOOL.
ONLY a FOOL would tell someone to use AVID directly on BUDS and have the Nerve TO ADMIT that the clones will have AVID in their system for a Couple generations.NO SHIT!
AVID does work but it also is a poison that is not to be PLACED directly on the PLANT.
AVID can be used Indirectly as long as you use it sparingly.
The alternatives for direct applications are Neem oil,Eucalyptus oil and Peppermint Oil. Garlic also Deters Bugs and Mites a Bit.
The best bet is to never let them in!!
Being very careful,is not easy and requires sacrifices and time consuming changes of Clothes.SO WHAT!!
Just do it!!!
Do not Poison the Frigging plants.
Indoor grows take more work than one realizes.The best bet ONCE AGAIN is to have a ventilation system that literally moves the air so much it is clean.
Burn Sulphur every once in awhile to control mold.Not too much sulphur either.That too can effect the taste and outcome of the buds.When in the Last Budding Stage NO SULPHUR.Mold can be a BITCH.When the buds are starting it is OK to Burn One last Time.
The Larger the grow the more the worry.The smaller grows are easier to keep under control.Just do not get lazy.
Remember what you feed the plants comes out in the Product,DUH!!
The HUGE grows that Oakland is about to allow will be a HUGE mistake TOO SOON.
The huge GROWS will be a FED magnet if The wrong administration takes office.
The Huge Grows may be a MITE MAGNET.Imagine having an Infestation in a grow that huge.That would be a NIGHTMARE.
That is when the Wealthy Bastards are going to use AVID and I know it.There needs to be a way to test the Herb Cheaply for AVID.
With Bad Advice on The Internet I would not be surprised if AVID is more common than the Cannabis community is aware of.I sure the hell hope not.
AVID is a POISON PERIOD and is not to be directly sprayed on Cannabis Plants.
