DYI Plant Fungicide
Recipe in article states to: Mix half a pound of baking soda with 1 gallon of water. Dish washing soap, without degreaser or bleach, is a popular ingredient for homemade plant fungicide. Cooking oils are often mixed into homemade plant fungicide to make them cling to leaves and stems. Question: What is the proportion ratio to this mix? 1/2 baking soda: 1 gallon water? How much dish soap and cooking oil? The article failed to give these. Thank you JOHN MEYER Please respond to: VALCON_2@YAHOO.COM
The thing about these homemade mixes is that amounts aren't exact. Around 2 tablespoons of soap to 1 gal water should work, but twice as much soap will still be okay. I personally don't like to add too much oil - maybe 1 tablespoon to a gallon - because I don't like an oily mix. However, you can use more or less or none at all, depending on what seems the most comfortable and effective for you.
