    Hi friends!

    The leaf of ladies finger has become white on top. If we touch it, it itches a lot. What to do for this?

    most common ones that attack bhindi are called mosaic virus. i remember reading about this ..(only reading is happening for me these days..)

    but these look like aphids to me..white powdery insects..are there lots of ants around. if so make sure there are no ants. these ants are menace that carry around these..the same is common on hibiscus too..

    try spraying it with the 1tsp part neem oil+ 1 tsp dishwashing liquid+ 1ltr water that we reco in these forum for aphids..if this does not work add 2tsp of red chilli powder to the same..

    Ok. Thank you. One of my friends suggested 3G concoction (Ginger, Garlic and Green chillie) - grind together, filter, add water and apply on the leaves. I tried this too. But did not work.

    I will your method tomorrow.

    Thanks

    For organic gardening.. use 3G+ soap water and Neem oil + Soap water alternatively for every two week once to stay away from pests.
