so, @cahlen, do you not attempt to eradicate the aphids? i assume, no. and, if my assumption is correct… is that because the aphids are not damaging the amaranth to a point where you anticipate a reduction in your harvesting of them?

It doesn't appear to damage the plant at all.

perfect 👍🏼 thanks for the clarification and let us “let nature take its course!

aphids that I often see on old chili trees. But we usually use insect poison to kill them
