The best line of defence against bad nematodes is prevention. While there are numerous pesticides you can use, they will also equally eradicate a significant amount of the good microbiology around the rhizosphere—the living ecology surrounding the roots.
One such example is the root-knot nematode, which as the name implies, works by entangling itself around the roots and swelling up, forming huge abnormal galls. There are five types of nematodes that attack the roots, and one that attacks the stems—the stem nematode. This one will cause swelling and atrophy of the stems and leaves, severe stunting, and even wilting. The result is more often than not an irrecoverable crop. Luckily, this doomsday scenario is relatively easy to prevent.
Moreover, the use of pesticides that are considered safe to ingest may become very toxic when smoked. For example, myclobutanil, which is safe for human consumption, turns into hydrogen cyanide when combusted, which is a dangerous poison.

Inoculating your substrate with nematodes is as simple as mixing them with plain unchlorinated water and spraying it on the topsoil. It is advised not to mix the species together; instead, spray them one at a time on different days. This will enable your army of pest-seeking roundworms to travel into the subsoil using moisture while reproducing at record speeds. Nematodes can eat up to 5,000 bacteria per second. They will colonise the rhizosphere in no time. From here, you can add the subsequent species so they don’t compete with each other, instead forming several lines of defence. By doing so, your soil will become much more alive and productive.
So, by keeping your substrate fresh, cultivating beneficial bacteria, being sure wet-dry cycles are balanced, and oxygenating your water—these typical performance tweaks will work wonders against parasitic nematodes while promoting symbiotic nematodes.
Nematodes are microscopic worms that are essential for a healthy living soil. But that does not mean they are all beneficial for cannabis. In this segment, we will explore how to use them.
In agriculture, nematodes can be either detrimental or beneficial to plants. In fact, some species are so aggressive they are considered parasitic and can cause devastation of entire plantations.
So I took some freshly cracked seeds for a couple new strains that I am interested in working with that I germed for two days using the paper towel method. I took these freshly cracked seeds with tap roots about 1/4 inch and put them in soil. I grow DWC but I am looking for potential mothers which I keep in soil.
Well three days later two of these seeds have not grown at all, while the others are growing and have shedded their seed capsules. The two that have not budged are still at soil level. Today I gave them a very close look and I discovered very very very tiny little white bugs on the seed capsules. They look and move like worms or leaches and are crawling all over the seeds and where the tap root is emerging. These things are VERY small. You could easily fit HUNDREDS of them on one seed. I tried to take a pic but they are just to small to show up on my camera.
Never seen this before, hopefully someone knows what these things are.
So what do you guys and gals think these things are? They have obviously stunted the growth/and or killed off the seed at this point. And, how do you think they arrived? I figure this more than likely means my soil is contaminated with parasites and should be discarded completely?
