My Thail basil was growing very well a while ago. Then I found sticky sap on the stems. I read that this is caused by aphids hence I used neem oil to spray at the leaves. That seemed to help.
However, soon after doing this a few times, the plant started to stop growing. Some leaves started to wilt, some simply drop off if I touch the plant. Just small bunches at the top of leggy stems (about 4 stems) but no new little leaf.
Did I do something wrong? Can it be saved (since there is still some green leaves left)?
