I'm all about tips, I enjoy using and learning new tips and especially if they are Eco friendly. I found a huge list of remedies that We all can make at home to treat insects and diseases on plants. This time I'm going to share them with you little by little, so this post would not get so long and boring, ...he he:

Bululu's garden

Home-made soap solution for insect control on plants:

You'll need:
Baby shampoo
Empty gallon bottle (you can reuse the empty gallon of milk)
Empty Spray Bottle


Mix 2 tablespoon of baby shampoo in 1 gallon of water.

Water the plants the day before the soap spray application to prevent damage. Test the spray solution on a small area of the plant. Wait 2-3 days and check for any damage. reduce potential injury by rising plant with fresh water a few hours after the soap spray application.

Note: Use a maximum of 6 tbsp. per gallon on water. Through coverage of the pest is necessary. Avoid using soaps on plants with hairy leaves or with very thin waxy coverings on the leaves.

I hope you can put in good use this tip for your own garden.

1 of 100 The World's Most Influential People

My hubby was reading the TIME magazine May 11, 2009 Edition. And that called my attention of who are this year's 100 Most Influential People?...and I started to go through page by page, to my surprise I saw a young man that I admire a lot...of course he's from Venezuela.

His name is Gustavo Dudamel, he's a very talented man, dedicated to teach classical music. His career has skyrocketed. This fall he will become the music director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. He's in the list among others like Michelle Obama, George Clooney, Penelope Cruz and the Twitter Guys.

Gustavo Dudamel

He has an unlimited talented and charisma, Gustavo has invigorated the sometimes staid world of classical music. His performances are very alegre, where the audience can't resist the infectious joy.

Gustavo Dudamel's musical passion was nurtured in his native Venezuela, where he participated in the country's classical-music program for children. He's using that model for a program in the U.S.

When Gustavos made his own New York Philharmonic debut a year and a half ago, the Times declared, "Once this kinetic young conductor took the Philharmonic' podium, the comparisons with Bernstein were obvious... He delivered teeming, impassioned and supremely confident performances. Clearly, the Philharmonic players were inspired by boundless joy and intensity of his music making."

I posted a video of him and his passion, enjoy it as much as I do.
