Today's episode is all about organic pest control, and how to proceed with delicate growing situations. The products I used for organic pest control are called Azamax, Safer Soap, Lime Sulfur, & Neem Oil, were all diluted with water, and applied using a 2 gallon hand pump sprayer.
While my pest control sequence that I explain in the following video was extremely effective, killed all the aphids, and in all likelihood will prevent future aphid and mite attacks, the nute burn/lockout issue continues to be a problem.
I provide a few examples of how the plants are reacting in negative ways, the delicate nature of flushing out excess nutrients from overfeeding, while also giving enough time for the soil to dry all the way. You must wait to flush since potential root rot could occur from extra moisture being retained in the soil longer, due to a non-uptake of water and nutrients from the plants (salt build up from excess nutrients in the soil around the roots cause this).
Here is the series so far:
