Outdoors it can be anything, Caterpillars, Inchworms, Cabbage Loopers, Leafhoppers you name it. Place this one on a stand or off the ground that will help it recover and protect it from these critters. Second you can spray your leaves, especially underneath the leaves. Fatty acid salts or insecticidal soaps and even neem oil I've heard. You'll need a mister to apply any of these if you choose to go this route. Hope this helps and don't let the critters harvest the plant before you lol

@Sky_High_Steve Get yourself some Diatomaceous Eath mate Its the absolute best for all your pests
and is a natural source of silica for your soil

Hey there you have a pest problem probably "leaf hoppers" or something similar. What you can do against such pests is add some so called "beneficials" to you soil for example bacilus subtilis, bacilus trychoderma (BT), and BT israelis , these bacteria infect the eggs and the larvae of the bugs so your plants soil isn't infected anymore. Growing outside you'll always get pests but with this techique you'll be able to manage the pest population enough for a decent grow. Just buy the beneficials as spores and follow the instructions on the label, usually 15g/L plus a foliar spray every so often. Hope this helps ! :rocket:

hey sir,you may have slugs in the garden,put some bowls with beer in the soil and maybe it shall solve the issue,make a home made neem oil based solution to spray your plant,1-2ml Neem oil per each 1 liter of water,or if you dont have neem oil,use garlic chops which you can leave in water 24 hours to get the juices out,then mix it with some liquid soap and spray your plants,it will repel bugs,plus try planting companions too,examples:basil,lavender,coriander,mint
