malathion and fungicide and fertilize at the same time
hi all :)
i need some serious advice as my time has become super crunched and after tossing about 100 orchids 2 years ago i'm trying to hold onto the clan i still have.
i am fighting a serious mealy bug issue very shortly after almost a victorious fight with the scale. Two weeks ago I had to put all of the kids in large buckets and soak them overnight as i've been so swamped with work that, though i knew it was a bad idea, - it was more important that they got watered. and of course, one of them had a virus that spread.
So here I am with wanting to commit to a stinky malathion treatment but was wondering if after today's major watering - is it safe to do multiple treatments at the same time in the correct doses?
I was hoping to fill a massive barrel with the correct 1.25 tsp/gallon malathion and the equivalent gentle doses of fungicide and fertilizer per gallon and do all three at the same time.
Safe or not? again, they are well watered and will do it in cool temps.
and repeat in 10 days
Any feedback would be amazing
