Thanks GM! glad you stopped by.
yea i think you're right about cutting out the branches not really helping. i just couldn't stand to look at it anymore.
also 3 of the 4 plants in the cab are identical, made from cuts of the same mother, so i knew if one started getting affected the rest would follow quickly. monoculture is not something i'm a fan of.
getting back on my lavender regimen seems to have halted their activities. the stuff really works.
i like the eucalyptus idea. i have a ton of trees around my area, do you think i could mulch with their leaves to a similar effect? i wonder if they are allopathic...
