Rhizo1 -- couple questions
Hey, got a couple questions for you.
I've noticed on more than one occasion you recommend adding a tad of vinegar to soap solutions. But, whenever I've done this, the soap curdles and separates from the solution. While I shake my sprayer vigorously every few minutes while I do the spraying, when I'm done i still notice quite a bit of soap solids left in the tank. This can't be a good thing, no? Is it the IVORY soap that I'm using? Should I try fels naptha or castile? Or what?
Also, regarding Powdery Mildew and the use of a baking soda solution. I've read that the reason why baking soda is effective is because it changes the ph of the leaves' surfaces which, in turn, creates an environment unfavorable for the spores to reproduce. So, do you also recommend vinegar to be added to this solution also? it would seem kind of counterproductive given that baking soda is basic and vinegar is acidic.
Thanks a lot and anybody else who wants to chime in, feel free.
