stop at first sign of pistils(white hairs) they will shrivel and burn.
personally I don't foilar feed at all most nutes are phytotoxic meaning that they can burn the stomata or something like that I'm no xpert thou.

yes stop in the first week
most of us don't foiliar spray for a couple of reasons.
1st it creates mist very dangerous with hid lights could explode.
2cnd if ur feeding nutes in the water and foiliar the chance of burn increases.
3rd most nutes are phytotoxic to the plant meaning it will burn or close the stomata which are responsible for growth "when closed plants slow growth"

they look pretty bad.

No need for it at all. Never spray anything on your bud.



really? is that just for the flower cycle that i shouldnt foliar spray?

can i still spray throughout the veg cycle?

im on day 11 of flowering...and this is my 1st grow so dont be too harsh

are they looking alright?

I've never sprayed anything on a plant and so far so good. My humidity has ranged from 20% to 80% depending on time of day and conditions. I'd be worried that spraying em might invite mold or mildew.
