Here are the following most common pathogens and pests you need to pay attention to: 

Whiteflies 

Whiteflies are tiny but can still be seen. These flies have been recognized to invade plants to the flower’s end. Whiteflies can cause white spots over the leaf’s surface. If there are plenty of them, it may cause your leaves to turn yellow and eventually die.  

Aphids 

These insects are small ones with either clear, cream, or light-green color that can be seen with our naked eyes. Once this invades your plants, the damage it can cause will result in its yellowing and wilting of your leaves and slow development. Aphids are commonly an indoor threat. However, a great number of aphids can hit outside as well. Usually, they are escorted by ants who consume their nectar.  

Spider mites 

The spider mite is a pest that’s tiny yet still visible. Most of the time, this pest is a threat to indoor grows and greenhouses. You can tell that your plant is damaged once your leaves are “flecking”—appears to be small white speckling on the surfaces of your leaves. Great numbers of spider mites can possibly cover your plants with webbing while sucking the life out of your plant’s vegetation.  

Caterpillars 

There are several various types of caterpillars. However, the most destroying type among all is the Corn Earworm and the Eurasian Hemp Borer. The borer tends to chew its way into the plant’s stalk, causes it to be immediately killed. Meanwhile, the Corn Earworm has mostly seen during the flowering season once it holes into ripening buds. Anywhere it feces or sets foot, the flower will rot. The damages can be prevalent from healthy-looking flowers and dead leaves. However, once you can see the damage, it is probably too late.  

Broad mites 

Broad mites are small yet destructive pests that can just be seen by utilizing a scope. Damage can be observed in drooping and twisted growth on the leaves that appear wet or blistered. 

Hemp russet mites 

This type of pest cannot be seen with the naked eye. Hemp russet mites can rapidly destroy your crops of cannabis. With some types, you will observe crispy tips on foliage and also “canoeing” in the leaves that nearly appear like a nutrient burn. When it comes to flowering plants, hemp russet mites are the most destructive ones since they eat the bud from the inside out. As a result, it eventually becomes rotten.
