After searching this forum, I wonder if I have mites? I’ve never seen them but plants look similar to pics I saw on here. I wonder if that’s why I haven’t had much luck. ( I did order avid on a whim but then decided to post first and ask for guidance).
My setup: I have a table with several large hydroponic pots full of 50:50 peat/ pool filter sand. I used some long fibered sphagnum to line the pots and for a cosmetic top layer. Almost Everything were brands I found recommended on this forum ( no miracle grow!) . Each pot sits in a plastic container. I use only RO water and fill each to 1.5 inches and refill when it’s almost dry Or dry.
They get 1/2 day of direct sun ( they sit on the west side of my house) although 1/2 of that is filtered through a large tree. I added a grow light to help out as a guess to whyThey did so poorly based on the lack of red trap coloration which made me think they were light deficient.
Anyway, I’m including a pic of my most successful trap so far but which, as you can see, has developed brown splotches indicating it isn’t doing well. So, could it be mites? Or something else?
