White spots on leaves

    On a couple of my plants, small see through white spots have appeared on the top leaves. I looked for spider mites and could not find any. Anyone know what this is or what I can do about it? The very bottom leaf on some plants is yellow and wilted also.

    I found really small, black dots on the underside of the leaves where the white spots are concentrated. They are barely visible to the eye with a magnifying glass and as far as I can tell, the black dots don't move.:(

    I had the exact same problem growing outdoors in Hawaii, and I just made a solution of neem oil concentrate (like a tablespoon per gallon) and water.

    If you wanna make this spray, you should add a little dish soap as an emulsifier, like a teaspoon per gallon... Then you just put it in a spray bottle and foliar feed in the late afternoon about once a week.

    At least for me, the spots went away soon after starting, but I never got rid of the white spots.

    Hope this helps,

    You got Spider mites mate, Best to do battle with them now before you are half way threw flower and have to accept a petty defeat(Buds/yeild). They breed pretty quick and when there is allot of them its hard to control and rid yourself from them.

    Thanks. I ended up finding extremely small, reddish mites today. I bought some Fruit & Vegetable insect killer that is organic and hope that it will work. :)
