I have Morning Glories, Moonflowers, Four O'clocks, and Shasta Daisies, and I discovered that there were spider mites on them. I used your recipe (2 Tablespoons salt 1 quart warm water, Kills cabbage worms and spider mites - mix and spray as needed) and did as directed,in the evening when the sun was not shining on them.
I sprayed them on the leaves of the plants, and within about thirty minutes, the leaves were looking like wet spinach. I quickly sprayed with fresh water, but now (two days later) a large number of the leaves appear to be dead, dying, or like wet spinach. All the spider mites are gone now, but the plants are not very healthy.
Is there something to do to help them? Or is that the way it is supposed to work?
