Trouble With Auto pots

  • Well, we're still working on things and I imagine we'll see some bugs, some breaking, and things that need to get fixed. We'll start on the most critical things first and work our way down. We're still installing add-on's and squaring away some licensing stuff, but feel free to browse the board and we'll update everyone on when things are added, restored, or otherwise changed.

So, I've never had a fungus gnat, or any type of pest issue... until now. I believe they are fungus gnats. Small black flies that kinda jump around. My question is, how do I get fungus gnats if I'm using Auto Pots?! The top layer of the soil isn't moist, so what gives?
I think you can use mosquito dunks on fungus gnats are you using airdomes?

Beats me dude. Get traps
How the girls lookin?
They looking alright, but the yellowing/browning of the leaves give me anxiety attacks. LOL!

Not air domes, and I'm planning on watering the soil today with some gnatrol. Just confuses the shit outta me as to how the gnats even hatched if the soil isn't being watered. Are they hatching from the bottom of the pot?

If your feeding from the bottom. Have you tried ditenashus earth? I'm sure that is not spelled correctly.

Nope, but I'm reading up on it now!

OK, OK, I think I'm back on steady ground. In the end, I think the molasses was the culprit. Once I switched from molasses and Epsom salt to CalMag, the nute solution stopped turning a thick, coffee brown, and the pH stopped fluctuating so wildly. My yield definitely took a hit, and my ladies look ragged as hell, but the buds are sticky, and stanky, and I learned a good lesson for my next go round wit these auto pots. I can feel it; I'm gonna knock the next grow straight out the park. 4sho
