So I wasn't able to find a specific answer to this question as I searched the Internet so I'm
hoping some experienced growers can help me out. I harvested the majority of my cones yesterday
and there ...

I don't believe that I have spider mites -I've checked for those. Overwatering could be a
possibility. I struggle with that because some places you read to use up to a gallon a day and
other places I ...
