Introduction: The first place to address your question is the online materia medica – www.considera.org/matmed – and the less-complete repertory – www.considera.org/rep. The repertory and materia medica are designed so that anyone can consult them and add to them. Everyone can add their experiences on-line or by post.
If you find a remedy, here are some suggestions for how to apply these to the plants:
Kaviraj suggested this: “When I refer to treating plants with homeopathic remedies, this is the standard dosing procedure: Put 20 drops of a 6X potency in a litre of water. Succuss the bottle 50 times. Put this litre in the watering can, fill it up with 19 litres of tap water and stir. If the watering can is smaller, the amount of remedy put in must be proportionally smaller. Thus a 10 litre can needs only ½ litre and just 10 drops of the remedy. Apply the contents of the watering can to the roots of the plants to be treated.”

Dear Plant Doctor,
I live in Southern India in an ashram where we have large crops of Moringa and Tulasi plants which are being daily used by the ashramites in a famous Indian Guru ashram. (AMMA, the hugging saint).We are bothered by some pests.The farmer has asked me to write to you and find out how to get rid of them.He thinks it is called a Foam beetle.but I am attaching a photo here.
We have used organic pesticide :neem oil& 7-generation soap for 3 weeks on the moringa in the evening hours. The moringa is attacked every day by these pests so the leaves cannot get started. We would like to learn how to attract other natural beings like birds,predators of these two main pests.The pest in the pic hatches and multiplies, then eats the tulasi leaves. It is also keeping the moringa from blossoming.
Please help as soon as possible. Thanks
Dr. Waris: You can Use ANTIMONIUM TARTARICUM 1M & MEZEREUM 1M alternately to control this problem.
Hi Plant Doctors,
I have just found this 2 cm beetle on my bean plants. All the leaves of my bean plants have been eaten this year. I just wondered what I can do about it.

My lemon fruit is affected with canker and the fruit sometimes has a black and grey colour, which is not suitable for market. Could you please make a suggestion?
Dr. Waris: ABROTANUM 1M after every week. Irrigate in roots.
Hi Plant Drs!
I am concerned about a tree that grows near my house. It had to be dramatically pruned a few years ago because the electric wires on the sides of the street were intruding on its space as it grew. Now it does not seem well or healthy. It seems to be too close to the electricity because ever since it became so close to these wires it does not look healthy, does not thrive as much as before. It is a maple tree. Can you recommend a remedy?
Dr. Waris: First of all you give a single dose of RADIUM BROM CM in roots, and after one week you start ARNICA MONT. 1M with the interval of 7 days.
