I have a dear friend that has lived in Florida all her life and knows alot of horticultural info. accumulated for over 80 years now.

That would explain why only my plants with that in their mix are the plants i'm finding damage from bugs and white powdery residue. sigh

I have never heard that before. Good info, Connie. Thanks for sharing it.
