Homeopathy has been used extensively in the treatment of people and animals for more than 200 years, but its use with plants (agrohomeopathy) is still in its infancy. Vaikunthanath das Kaviraj was one of the pioneers in this emerging area of homeopathy.
Sadly, Kaviraj passed away on the 2nd of March, 2013 but his life’s work was not wasted. The knowledge he shared about agrohomeopathy continues to benefit countless people.

Questions and Answers
Q1: Jade perch fingerlings. I am growing out some jade perch fingerlings in an aquaponics set up with vegie grow-beds and a 1000 litre fish tank. As it is a completely biodynamic and organic set up I can’t use any chemicals. I recently visited a friend who has a similar, but much larger, setup and we harvested some fish but found they had intestinal fluke or worms. Is there a homeopathic remedy for the parasites? My fish are about half grown so I would only be looking at treating them close to the time of when I would be harvesting them to eat. Any suggestions would be greatfully received. Thanks, Cathy
Instructions for Agrohomeopathy Remedy Use and Storage
Just add one 6X or 6C potency pill to each 200 ml of water, shake vigorously, and then spray on the leaves of your plant or water into its roots. If using the remedy for pests, spray where the pests normally gather.
Store pills and liquid away from light, moisture, and high temperatures (normal household temperatures are fine). Close range mobile phone and microwave oven emissions have been shown to affect homeopathic remedies. Keep your pills and liquid remedies away from these appliances.
1 x vial of 100 pills from the Homeopathy Plus Shop makes 20 litres of remedy.
