I HATE APHIDS!
If you are growing indoors it is very important to keep a close eye for insects and have an insect control plan in place. Yes, indoor gardens are still susceptible to insect pests because natural predators are not present. These nasty pests can come from several sources like open doors, your pets, other indoor plants and even your clothes. They are a condition of the ENVIRONMENT and seldom a condition of your seedlings whether you purchase from a seedling provider or you grow your own.
It is SO important to have a pest prevention and treatment program in place. You HAVE to and you have be diligent.
Tower Garden has a lot of great info about growing inside and pest management protocols.
