But I find ours loses potency after mixing, and so does the
original product (after several months)! Might be something about
our un-clean un-green air over here!
Brian: I have found the same thing. I purchased my Lime Sulfur from
a vendor in Georgia which sells lots of it to apple growers. Mine
didn’t even last 3 months. It lost all of its potency after about 7
weeks. And it took a heck of a lot more than 1 teaspoon diluted to do
anything, even with multiple dippings.
Thinking perhaps I got a bad batch, I tried it again and the results
were the same. I kept it in the same dark brown plastic bottle that
it came in and stored it in a dark closed cabinet. Same results. So
it may have to do with the climate here (I live in Florida).
By the same token, I purchased the liquid form of Liver of Sulfur
from Rio, transferred it to a dark brown glass bottle with a tight
rubber stopper, stored it in the same dark cabinet, and it lasted
over a year and still worked like a charm - and needed nothing done
to it, just pour and use.
I have gone back to using the powdered form and keep the small can
of it tightly closed, place the closed can in a tightly closing
plastic container (the disposable freezer containers you buy) and
store this in the dark cabinet and it keeps incredibly well - I’ve
had this last can for over a year now and it still works well. (I
don’t use a lot of it, you can tell).
