Damage from herbicides
If in our garden there are some weeds it is good to pay close attention to the use of any chemical herbicides to solve the problem. Often in fact, it is appropriate to say it, if we act without measure the remedy turns out to be worse than the disease. A general rule is that before resorting to chemicals it would be good to practice other strategies, such as manual weed prevention or removal. In any case, if you have to resort to herbicide products, you have to pay attention to two things in particular: the quantity and methods of distribution. In fact, the greatest damage occurs when a product is used at a concentration higher than the recommended one and perhaps it also affects other plants in addition to weeds, perhaps on the most sensitive parts such as leaves or flowers. In this case, there may be growth discrepancies or dwarfism, bunching of vegetation, and, as regards the leaves, they will be small and with a fleshy and rolled up edge. Since no infectious pathogens are involved, all that remains is to wait for detoxification and the formation of new vegetation. If the affected plant is in a pot you can replace the substrate.
