"Cleansing and detoxifying" remedy (337)
The variables analyzed were: germination percent (PG), shoot length (CPA), root system length (CSR), fresh mass (MF) and dry matter (MS) of sorghum seedlings. Homeopathic treatments affected sorghum germination and growth, sometimes inhibiting or stimulating the variables studied depending on dynamization assessed. (1743)
12C dilution caused aerial part inhibition; there was an inhibitory effect on roots at 12 and 30c dilutions, and 6, 12 and 30C dilutions inhibited fresh biomass when compared to the control (0C) and the other dilutions. (1768)
The number of fruit flies in the group sprayed with Sulphur 30 was found to be lower than the number of fruit flies in the control group ... (1815)
In the case of varieties that are very demanding in terms of nutrient quantities. Induces detoxification of plants, soils and animals. (1837)
The roots are dry or slimy, with blisters or vesicles. Epidermis comes off the roots as in root nematode, root gall, crown gall. Plants very thirsty. Great need for nutrients with impaired assimilation. (3)
Roots and soil smell musty and rotten. (337)

Spectacular! My roses bushes were sick, all leaves yellow and brown. Following your book Homeopathy for Farm and Garden, gave Sulfur 5 CH and in 48 hours they came back green and alive. (599)
My kohlrabi was affected by whitefly. There were so many that a white cloud puffed up whenever a leaf moved. I dissolved 8-10 pellets of Sulphur 200 C in a watering can with 10 l of water, stirred with a wooden stick always in the same direction, and then I watered my plants with this. After a week I noticed an effect, with approximately 1/4 to 1/3 of the flies having disappeared. I repeated the watering treatment and now I have virtually no whitefly in the garden (496)
Sulphur at all dilutions increased the mass of shoots by 23% to 37% (1765)
The damage incidence of small borer was efficiently reduced with applications of Sulphur 12CH that equalled B. thuringiensis. (1775)
Sulphur at 6CH increased the height ... in comparison with a control, in two of the three experiments with cabbage seedlings. ... Sulphur at 6CH increased the production and the dry mass of cabbage heads. (1780)
I gave sulfur 200 to my lemon tree in the photo on March 11 (there were leaf curling and weaving because the red spiders were pulling sap from the leaves). Leaf shedding stopped, started to flower on March 28 and then to give three shoots. (1812)
I conducted an experiment with my cabbage and broccoli plants. I watered some plants with Sulphur 30c twice, and I left some untreated. The difference is very obvious! (1821)
Premature flowering (3)
Rose leaves showed a coating of white mildew. It was sprayed 2x, once each week, with Sulphur 30 C. The fungus stopped spreading and the new leaves were healthy. (496)
Generative organs
Defective pollination. Sterility. (3)
Faulty pollination, sterility of plants, seeds, (244)
... a fungal infestation ... caused the grapes to rot and turn black. I advised the farmers to make a homeopathic mixture of sulphur and copper ... After treatment ... the plants healed in three days, and the grapes were ready for harvest. (1763)
Results of controlled trials demonstrated that the use of high-dynamized dilutions of ... Sulphur ... positively influenced crop production, pest disease levels, and plant vigor in strawberry plants. (1795)
no fruit, seed or grains produced (3)
Lack of seeds. (244)
Coumarin content of the plants was increased in the case of ... Sulphur by 52.91%, ... when compared to the control material. (1700)
Regarding essential oil yield, an increase in yield (%) at 18c (0.150 ± 0.01) and 30c (0.180 ± 0.01) dilutions occurred when compared to control (0c) (0.017 ± 0.01). The essential oil presented phenylpropanoids as the main class in its composition and apiole and myristicin as major compounds in all evaluated treatments. The 12c dilution allowed an increase in apiole (96.24%) and decrease in myristicin (3.76%). However, myristicin has an increase in treatments 6c (14.65%), 18c (10.46%), 24c (13.66%) and 30c (14.80 when compared to the control 0c (5.99%). (1768)
Results confirmed the effect of sulphur dilutions in the yield and composition of basil essential oil. Both the 6c and the 12c dilution rates led to the highest yield of essential oil (0.15%) when compared to the control (0.08%) and to other dilution rates (P≤0.05). The major chemical components of essential oil changed as the sulphur increased, the concentration of linalol: 33.14%(12c); 30.92%(6c); 27.13%(30c); 23.86%(24c); 7.41%(0c) and eugenol: 33.11%(24c); 32.14%(12c); 28.57%(30c); 26.51%(6c) and 7.8%(0c); in comparison with the control (0c). (1769)
Sulphur 6CH [is] able to provide healthy and vigorous seedlings when compared to the control. (1781)

Give to roses at the end of a growing season and there will not be aphids in subsequent seasons. (Use cimicifuga for aphids in the season.) (1531)
The variables evaluated during vegetative development were: plant height, stem diameter, number of leaves, weight, leaf area and productive yield. Significant differences were recorded in all the variables and stages of development studied. The highest germination values corresponded to SiT-7CH and PhA-7CH (100%), surpassing the control group (83.5%). The PhA-7CH and NaM-31CH treatments stimulated stem growth in the germination stage (3.40 cm) and NaM-7CH root growth (4.07 cm) in the emergence stage. During the vegetative development, the plants with the highest production were those treated with NaM-7CH. (1655)
Among the tested homeopathy drugs, Sulphur increased values of fresh and dry biomass more than Arsenicum album. Plant height [was] increased by the two drugs and their respective dinamizations. Whereas Sulphur inhibited dry biomass production, except 6CH dinamization, it increased substantially mint plant’s essential oil content. (1712)
The fresh and dry matter mass of the shoot and the root system, the average length of the root system, the average plant length, the length of the largest leaf and the root diameter were analyzed. The application of Sulphur improved the general conditions of the plants in practically all the studied variables, when compared with a control. The dinamizations 5 CH, 12 CH, 30 CH and 1 MCH showed better responses. The control and the dinamization 200 CH were the treatments that presented the most negative results. (1713)
Preliminary results indicate its effectiveness, however, due to the small number of samples, yet we have no statistical evidence to say with certainty that there were differences between the control plants and their treatment. (1725)
Assessment of growth of colonies was accessed at 24, 48, 72 and 96 hours, and found that within 24 hours there was no increase in mycelial growth, but at 6 CH was 26.75% suppression of growth. After 48 hours, the dynamizations at 24 and 48 CH were statistically different from the controls and promoted mycelial growth on the order of 8% and 10%, respectively. In other times there was no statistical difference. The results indicate that the homeopathic drugs dynamizated at 48 CH, promoted accelerating the initial growth of the fungus. (1735)
The results show significant effects on mycelial growth highlighting the dynamic 6CH 24 hours, only 48 hours 48 CH did not differ from all other witnesses sit higher potencies in mycelial growth, only 72 hours treatment 24CH differed when compared with the witnesses. (1744)
Macroscopic analysis demonstrated that plants treated with homeopathy showed less spots than plants treated conventionally. Furthermore, homeopathic preparations induced shoot growing, better pattern of vegetative growth and less defoliation. (1745)
Sulphur at 12 and 30CH ..... reduced the AUDPC [area under the disease progress curve] by 17% to 49%. Sulphur at 60CH and hydroalcoholic solution at 10% had a systemic effect on resistance induction (1765)
The Induction on APX (ascorbate peroxidase) and POD (Πactivities were observed in leaves treated with Sulphur in all tested potencies. (1774)
Important 'pesticide for cabbage, eggplant, squashes, cucumber, cantaloupe, and potato. (1810)
