But I have a question as to what kind of plants had the aphid problem and do you know what their Brix readings were during this time of problem with the aphids and were the plants Lush Green and growing, or did the plants seem to not be Lush and growing?
Reply:The plants were rape and baby bok choy. When they had the aphid problem, the brix readings were 3-5. They were somewhatlush, green and growing. The plants were being chewed up by insects.I managed to get the brix on the ape up to 8-10. the bokchoy was 6-8. They didn't stay there very long, because my mother in law harvested the veggies soon after the brix were raised. They all got off on a slow start. All my seedlings struggled in the beginning until i started applying fish and molasses. I might have upt too much limestone, granite and gypsum and bonemeal? A wheelbarrow(4 cubic feet) of the mixture for each 20 by 2.5 bed(edit).
