He's a great boy, tough as nails, and way stronger than one anticipates. Always cautious, once he establishes trust he let's you in, and remains cautious.

Default Thrips, dead.

Plants are churning along, some have been infected w tswv.


Volunteers and extras doing well.IMG_20180428_084424-01.jpeg

Some plants can handle the virions better than others

This one to be pulled

Dead thrips, finally.

IMG_20180428_084339-01.jpeg

These tend to have 4-8 adults, today everyone is dead. YES YES YES! Last night I doused all blooms and new growth in a strong combo of unrefined cold pressed neem, spinosad, deltamethrin, soap + wetting agent.

It appears to have worked
