So that was a waste. But now I run into my plants being in cold shock, I know that cold shock is fixable normally by itself but never have a read about temperatures being this low, so nobody has ever confirmed if this can be fixed. Now they look terrible, this happened last night. Is my crop dead or will they bounce back within time?

    Sorry, but those are may come back but most likely not. The one on the left in the last pic,looks to have the best chance of recovering

    Are you breeding? There's boys in there :pimp:

    I would save the best looking one if you wanted to try and trash the others, unless you have space and time to try but they do look pretty far cold crispy.

    That didn't happen from 10 minutes at 30 degrees, more like ten hours at 30 degrees.

    Dead. Lesson, don't do stupid shit that can kill your plants without fully researching it first. You gots the interwebs. You obviously know how to use it. Interwebs makes us smarter. Not using interwebs makes us dumber.

    Heat kills spidermites, not cold. Heat plus diatomaceous earth plus pyrethrin equals dead mites and is good to get of russet mites too. Now you're smarter. Go grow some more plants and use the interwebs when you get another dumb idea.
  9. Save them that can be saved bro, sorry for your loss. Better luck next time.
