    If you do bot want to use pesticide, you can try the water immersion method mentioned above (I've never used) or the CO2 approach.

    If the infested plant is with others, you will likely need to treat them all.

    I approach seed germination by placing a prepared pot in a sealed baggie. The side benefit is that the sowbugs that have been in the media, are actually dying. Why not try that with aphids?

    Ive already used the pesticide, which seemed to kill them all. I dont like using baggies much though. My pots always get infested with fungus gnat larvae in high humidity/stagnant/wet environments.
