03. SPIDER MITES IN FLOWER  Posted by gunny 

https://inharmony.com/spider-mites-water-is-key/ 
Normally, a healthy plant regulates its water retention and transpiration through its leaves. A leaf contains a vast array of stomata that open and close like valves according to environmental conditions, allowing water to escape or to be retained. This moisture regulation is absolutely vital to a plant’s health. When the stomata are closed, the surface of a leaf is highly resistant to water loss. This is part of your plant’s life-support system. It’s this “life support system” that spider mites attack.

Stomata closed is a meal bursting with nutrients for the spider mite, an open stomata is pouring out moisture and spider mites don’t like that.

Telltale signs of spider mite damage.Spider mites feed by piercing the leaf surface and extracting leaf cells and fluid. What was once the plant’s protective, waterproof casing is now punctured with thousands of tiny holes. Your plants sense they are losing too much moisture all of a sudden and close their stomata – but it’s no use as the moisture is still being lost through the holes made by those evil critters! The injured leaves continue to become dehydrated and lose significantly more water. The effect snowballs as the plant’s ability to photosynthesize and repair itself diminishes through sustained attack. Leaves die and fall off. The plant becomes weaker and weaker until it eventually gives up the ghost. Major infestations show up quickly given the right conditions. Plants that looked healthy two days ago can suddenly be covered in fine spider webs.

Leaves that have been attacked by spider mites are usually dry, brittle and discolored. Even a minor spider mite infestation can have a significant impact on a plant’s productivity. But it doesn’t stop there. The moisture stress caused by spider mite feeding actually makes the leaves taste better to the mites! Stressed leaves are sweeter and contain higher levels of soluble nitrogen. Both sugar and nitrogen are sought-after delicacies on the spider mite’s menu.

RECHARGE IT UP/MAGIC MICROBES:

Nature abhors a vacuum- was cleaning my bowl and got alcohol on my hands. Within 24 hours I had eczema on those spots. Once I killed the beneficials with the alcohol I screwed up the balance and created a vacuum. Same with soil. You can start with sterile soil but something is gonna show up, In baking you can put dough out to be populated by wild yeast. Same in the garden there’s a great chance of pathogens getting a foothold. Idea with soil microbes is to load up the soil with beneficial, nutrient solublizing bacteria and fungi that out compete the pathogens.
