I’ll Never Do That Again!

Starting this thread to collect the knowledge of the unwanted.

I used to tell people to smear vaseline on their stalks to stop bugs from crawling up the stems. I did this in early veg and it made my stalk rubbery and my plants suffered. Never smear vaseline on the stalks unless its late flower, use double sided tape instead, It’s stretchy and won’t harm your plant.

I used to tell people to use top dressing or gnat gnix, imo it works exactly the opposite as it says. The top dressing holds in moisture, emiting an odor of rancid evaporating water that attracts the gnats.

Sand is the only top dressing I recommend at the time.

Please post anything that you messed up on or found out you were wrong about that could benefit other people.
