Hi All,
I have been delaying the oxlaic Acid treatment due to the cold weather. Today it is 2c and sunny. Is this still too low to treat? If so what do you think the optimum temp should be?

Thanks

Mark

If you have 2'c in the shade then you are fine, I still can get above -2''c and still need to treat mine.

Make sure the solution in room temp, but not too warm.
