Spiders or spidermites?

  1. Over the past couple of weeks spiders of all size have come

    To worship there favorite plant, and ive welcomed them grasciously

    I checked on the girls just now and theres a ton of webs in the tomato cages

    Which is good for catching other pests right?

    My problem is one of the plants top colas has a web around it
    With a tiny black dot on one of the pistils...its making me nervous
    Could that be the begining of a spidermite infestation? The dot has has been there to record for two days with no movement or multiplying so i dont know,

    Any help is appreciated
     
  2. Hmm is the black dot fly poop? Have you tried to pick the black dot off? I would keep a close eye on the webs. Google spider mite damage and compare your plants to the pics remember to check the undersides of leaves too. I have a Artichoke plant with spider mites and those bastards are tough. I've been spraying daily with soap water but I think I'll need something stronger before it gets to my MJ plants.
     
  3. I have not tried to touch the black dot.

    I thought the plant would not like to have its pistil touched

    Next visit i will touch the dot
