Re: Spider Mites?

Oh man that bites. I was fully expecting that to work and I am really sorry to hear that the little buggers are back. :mad: You are 100% sure there isn't another source of contamination nearby?

Fertilizing recently separated pups

How long does everyone usually wait after separating pups to fertilize them?
