: I am attempting to make up a mixture

: reinfected with white fly. I used

: filled it up with coffee grounds
: that I got from Starbucks and Dunkin
: Donuts today. I tied it off and
: placed it on the bottom of a plastic
: storage container with about 6
: gallons of water. I saw in your
: article that you kept your mixture
: outside for 5 days. Have you ever
: tried less days and did it work?
I'm keeping it in the barrel for about a week to 10 days. % days typically didn't work. When i first strted experimenting, I tried it each day until I saw results. The days are not that important. It is the dark color that you are looking for. On a hot day and you had something to constantly aggitate the coffee ground bag, you could get something that would work in a day or so. It just has to be fairly dark.
