Default Baking soda spray

Any experiences with baking soda spray? Does it work? How do you make it?

Baking soda, water, few drops of dish soap, few drops of oil.

What it does is change th PH of the leaves. Gives a nice shine also

Yes it works.

Could you give me the ratio of water to baking soda? How often can it be used?

If you have access to YouTube, there are many videos on this with formulas. The formulas differ in their complexity. Google also provides plenty of (less entertaining) options. Personally, I like copper soap, but it is more expensive.

I use it about 10 years for:

Blights (early and late)
pests ( including mites)

o,264 gallon (1 Liter) water
1 tablespoon oil (cornoil - no sunflower oil) or plant oil in hot countries only a teaspoon
in Germany I do get cornoil, that is the best one
7,5 gram baking powder or 5 gram bicarb (natron Na2CO3 10H20)
and a splash washing-up liquid

I spray by blights: 3 times a week - the plants do not look very good, but after a week they do get new healthy side shoots. The ill leaves get black - theese cut away.

I spray by pests every 3 days and that 4 times.

you can take soft soap - 1/2 teaspoon for 0,264 gallon.
and - you can use it as often as you want.
