I bought a book on how to grow our favorite flower from a used bookstore(not a local store). I is helpful but without the help you have been, I would still be further back. So I read on pruning and that the damaged leaves won't repair themselves and instead just take energy from the plant I cut off as little of the leaf as possible an the plants slowed growth for one day but they seem to be doing much better. I'm doing my second gnat soak today and the glue trap has found a victim but only one so that's kinda reassuring. To me that says I caught it quickly which means I'm getting to really know what to watch for given certain changes I'm trying out.
