  1. I appreciate your feedback. Maybe you missed my point; the process of gluconeogenesis is not one that springs into overdrive in the presence of protein, the process is more or less constant. The process works when the body feels that it is in need of glucose, otherwise it is just ticking over. It is requirement driven, not reactionary. As for "dopey gurus" I can give you access to more serious studies, which I'm sure you can find for yourself, the Youtube reference wasn't necessarily meant for people like you.

I tried different sprays, anti-fungal and insecticides, didn't work. I also tried messing with soil composition. I did have the impression that it was a fungal problem. I came to the conclusion that my part of Thailand doesn't like this plant, and despite its decorative value (both in the garden and on food) I don't really need it. I also tried with seeds, which I normally had success with back home,
