I was told at the convention to put a pinch of Diatomaceous Earth, about 1 cup per 30 gal. into the soil. I think that would translate to a pinch per pot. I was also instructed to wear a dust mask. In England I was told to use crushed moth crystals, also wear a proper mask to protect you from any fumes.

Do you have any tips? Norma
