Homemade fungicide killed plants?

VeggieKillerJune 13, 2012

I looked up a recipe for a safe fungicide and insecticide. I found a recipe for a spray that claimed to be safe to use on vegetable plants(excluding tomato).


I used the second recipe on all of my plants except tomato. i sprayed during the early evening and it rained about 4 hours later. It continued to rain until i got home from work the next day. All of my plants have turned black or very dark and saturated. They look the way weeds do a day after spraying weed killer on them. Are my plants going to die? What can i do?

any info or advice would be appreciated.

You put ammonia on your plants?

Natural Garden Spray Recipes, does read as if the ammonia is getting near the dangerous concentration. Other than that, I've no conjecture.

I don't remember farmers ever putting ammonia on the leaves and stems of growing plants, but I have been away for a long time.

One year I sprayed a very weak solution of 1 part ammonia to 100 parts water on my tomatoes. Said to keep some bugs off them.

No harm done, but maybe no benefit either.
