    Hey guys my auto black jack herer is in flower and buggers are starting to eat leaves it looks like just caterpillars as there are black spots on plant and leaves eaten near buds. Check out the pictures all advice appreciated wondering if I should be worrying about it? there is nothing under the leaves or no pests along the main stem anyway thanks.

    ireland dont have the same kinda bugs warm climates have.we can only deal with crawling bugs.outdoors if something flying past stops for a nibble,not a lot we can do about it.
    give it a real good spray with a chemical insectiside ? but we gotta smoke the buds,i dont fancy smokin a sprayed bud.pair of tight or such over any flap or opening should keep out a lot of flyers.
    the odd nibble on a leaf is acceptable......compared to the bastard butterflies in usa/aus/spain that lay eggs in the buds....2 or 3 weeks later you got 28256 baby cattapliers shitting everywhere.
    take it on the chin they only interestested in the odd leaf
    good luck n keep er lit.

    Looks pretty normal for outdoor plants:smoking: they can take a lot of leaf-nibbling without too much trouble:thumbsup:

    Great guys thanks was thinking it’s not too bad at all just a bit of nibbling. What do you guys think in terms of finishing time what would you estimate? I really didn’t want to have to put any chemical nonsense on her after feeding it organically and growing out in nature so that’s a relief :cheers:

    Caterpillars :yoinks:.......ohh man do I hate those little bastards:finger:......good news is they are fairly easy to get rid of with some B.T (bacillus thuringiensis) which is safe to use in flower :headbang:........I spray my girls with it at the first sign of the little suckers showing up!!....I get a couple of different kinds....the little green ones are the worst and burrow into my buds and eat them from the inside out :nono:...

    Ah great stuff thanks man but just checked online and rang around to some garden places and specialist garden stores and none have it in stock it’s hard stuff to get hands on and cost €30 + with delivery to ireland :nono:

    I’ll just keep an eye on them make sure they don’t go too crazy

    Hey guys just looking for a little advice on when to stop feeding before harvest as you guys know I’m using biobizz nutrients and here is how my last few feeds have looked

    Monday 22nd

    1ml grow
    4ml bio heaven
    3ml Bio-Bloom
    3ml top max
    1.5ml algamic

    Saturday 20th

    2ml grow
    4ml bio heaven
    3ml Bio-Bloom
    3ml top max
    1.5ml algamic

    Thursday 18th

    3ml grow
    3ml bio heaven
    3ml bloom
    2ml topmax
    1ml Algamic

    The plant looks to be thriving with the nutrients looks like around 2-3 weeks out I am told when should I stop nutes?

    Any help much appreciated just want my first harvest to go as smooth as possible
