    Thumbs up Thrips.

    Sonofabitch.

    The Skywalker (and no doubt the Shiznitz too I'm sure) has thrips!!!

    I was on Blackdogs grow journal & read Kevinone's comment about
    holding a piece of white paper under the plant and tapping~

    I saw a couple of very tiny little things that look like a little hair or something
    but it moved! I grabbed the Radio Shack scope, and it was a fucking thrip!

    Fuck man, I wanted to harvest this Friday!

    Is it too late to treat them? Can I salvage the harvest?

    Ooh those little fuckers piss me off!!!

    I don't have pics of them as they are far too small, but here are some of my most
    recent pics from my journal of both plants:

    Skywalker







    Shiznitz






    Man I do not want to trash my first grow less than a week from harvest~

    Any comments/suggestions?

    Thanks everyone~

    Man I'm not seeing thrip damage or the black crap dots on you leaves. This is thrip damage and there black dots.

    But still if its ready to harvest, cut it down. They don't really like the buds. Just eat the leaves and plant. Killing it. But when you harvest mist will fall off. The rest will fall off and die as you dry.

    Also you can see thrips with your eyes. The older brown ones will jump when you try and touch them. But the new (almost clear ones just crawl around. And on the top side of you leaves.

    That's what I always thought too! Anyway, I never ever saw a single one till I did that white paper thing, THEN I could see them, but even then I almost didn't even take a second look because they are so small and I only saw a couple of them. Like you said, I saw a couple that were crawling around fast (almost couldn't keep them under the scope) and others looked whiter, smaller & slow.

    Fuck, that's good news that I can harvest & they'll die off! I still haven't seen any on the plant itself, let alone the buds!

    You don't think this is what the deal is with the Shiznitz do you?? It's just starting to flower.

    I guess I'll do the "tap test" on it too, but they're right next to each other so I don't see how they wouldn't be on both plants.

    I have some Garden Safe Neem Oil Extract that I never opened or used yet. Maybe I can use that on the Shiznitz before the flowers really start exploding...??

    Thanks Peace... I'm all bummed now that I found those bugs~

    I feel like I should be in there hunting every fucking one of them down and killing them, but I haven't even had any dinner so I guess I better eat.

    ARGH!

    No that's not what's going on with the shiznits. Thrips will will show damage then leaves just start drying up. And plant looks real bad. Not as white as full blown mite infest but close.

    Go gnats in the water will help with the soil. Doktor room will kill all that are in the room. Don't do it in glower but veg you are fine. Both should cost around $20-25

    Hi Rigby,

    No, no tobacco products or users here. Haven't smoked cigarettes for 13 years now~

    This little Shiznitz plant has had several leaf abnormalities since I originally got it (clone). Sometimes it comes out with a blunted/stunted leaf, etc...

    Thanks Rigby...

    i'll just keep an eye on it & see what happens. Up to this point, the growth has been vigorous, and I haven't seen a slow down yet. This will be the first one I have had in flower so I don't know what it "should" look like. However, this is my 16th day of flowering for her & the guy on that other site said they usually go to shit completely by day 14. Also, this plant never has the discoloration that he describes, not even at the site of bent leaves...
