General Appearance
I recently had a nice success - after transplanting a rose it got very droopy and sad from the shock - Aconite perked it right up within a couple of hours! (338)
Symptoms are sudden - a rapid reaction, especially as a reaction to cold (337)
Also had a dramatically excellent result treating a houseplant that must have suffered cold when I left for several days and the house got too cold for it. It was dying and perked up in 20 minutes with a dose of the remedy. (768)
Aconite deals very well for black rot which got into my soil years ago and kills all the brassicas, and seriously affects collards and kale. Have wonderful brassicas now. I always treat the seedlings when transplanted now. (768)
Stem/trunk and bark - capillary system
Sudden wilting (3)
Wizened stalks after frost (337)
Rust with bright red colouring and yellow margins. Hard red swellings of the leaves, bloated and hot and bright red. Red spots, swollen and shiny and broad. Sudden wilting. Interveinal chlorosis is the first sign of the yellow dwarf. The colour is yellow/orange and there is less pronounced reddening of leaf tips. (3)
Roses already affected by rose rust were watered in 3 separate groups: the 1st group were given Aconitum (3 pellets in a watering can of water), the 2nd group were given Belladonna, and the 3rd group were given pure water (on the soil). Each group was treated once only. Result: the group that were given pure water without a homeopathic remedy largely died off and had to be strongly cut back. The other two groups lost the affected leaves but they retained the less affected and newer leaves, so that they did not have to be cut back so strongly next spring. (496)
This year I watered once a month with Acon. 30C and Bell. 30C, very large flowers, stronger plants and so far very few rust spots on the leaves. (496)
In February we had a sudden cold spell over nearly 4 weeks. Many plants suffered from it. Most of my roses had severe problems. One "died" and I had to replace it with a stronger version. If I had known that aconite is the remedy to give even during winter after a very cold period on sunny day's maybe this rose would have made it as well. My neighbour has a cherry tree. The leaves would not grow properly and the bloom died, dried and turned black. This was due to a second very cold and wet period beginning of April. I started with Aconite C200 once. It seemed that some new leaves started to grow. 1 week later I gave kali-c. C200. Many new leaves started to grow, but a fungus was on nearly every leave even the new ones. So I remembered that red dots ask for belladonna and secondly that belladonna is like a hot tea for a tree! So I gave the cherry tree a bell C200 - and only 2 days later the fungus on the leaves started to dry out and the red dots would turn brown and fall out of the leave. This is the second time that I can witness this. So the leave stays on the tree and looks like an Emmenthal cheese. Picture here (339)
Turn grey due to cold wind and storms or intense sunlight after cold nights (337)
Leaves turn grey or silvery after frost (337)
I recently saved a prize bonsai which suddenly dropped 90% of it’s leaves. Turns out the kids had left it out in the cold wind while caring for my plants. I used homeopathic Aconite and Silica together in a spray bottle – 2 sprays, 3 days apart and suddenly there were new leaves everywhere. I wish I had taken a before and after photo because you wouldn’t believe the luxurious foliage 8 weeks later. The wonders of homeopathy!! (1529)
We applied Aconitum from the second year, before the frost, which saved almost all the plants. (1759)
Flowers dry, hot (3)
I'm just a hobby gardener but I had great success treating rust on roses using Aconitum. I've never had such beautiful roses! (496)
Generative organs
overproduction of pollen (3)
Slow setting of fruit. (3)
In this area , this year has been the worst for blackspot in apples in a decade according to the man doing organic juices. (My neighbour, organic grower that exports each year had to give all his crop to the juicer). But I do not have it!!!!!!! For me was the best year. Best apples are the ones treated ONLY with Homoeopathy - silica, sambuccus, then aconite. And obviously you are right that the trees respond differently when they are together, but that is not because of a magic relation, is just because we are right in front of the origins of a miasma, when the disease is epidemic and acute and is no other hidden totality to be considered.
