more...
Diana Rivera's curator insight, March 4, 2013 5:41 PM

Disease and insects are very easy to determine one from the other.  When manageing a greenhouse its nesscary to set up yellow sticky cards.  The yellow sticky cards attract the insects like a fly trap.  When and if their are tiny insects you are now aware of the issue at hand.  When dealing with disease most of the time it starts from the roots the roots can turn brown or yellow.  The roots can also start to grow mold or fungus.  No matter what your up aginst the problem can easily be solved.
