That’s a relief to hear you say about your personal experience, except for the bit where you had to actually deal with pests. That’s a real drag.
I bought two hybrids at that particular time. While only one is displaying symptoms right now, I’m still a little skeptical. I rashly bought 5 more plants from them, after I assumed their plants were “hunky dory.” What’s that you said about learning lessons? Lol.
I have yet to go deeply explore this forum’s posts about solutions to the issue. I’ve been researching other places online & reading a ton of product labels. I realize there multiple avenues, but I’m just about ready to go nuclear with a systemic pesticide & run all the risks. My finger is < > that close to pushing the red button.
