It looks like my heavy handed approach worked on knocking out the aphids. Went through every single plant individually with magnifying glasses and squished all of them. Then gave them a heavy spray of insecticide, which damaged some leaves, but they're recovering fine. Still too cold at night to move them outside annoyingly, but a few more days and it should be good. Here's some pictures from this morning.

Planted 48 of my oldest plants of the year each in their own 10 gallon fabric pots around my back yard. Did my own mix of some sphagnum moss, local mix of sharp sand, Leaf compost, and composted cow manure, triple phosphate, worm castings, bone meal, blood meal, dolomite lime, humic acids, azomite trace minerals, #3 perlite (great quality), and some super thrive.

why not keep them outside at this point? They look real good.
I need to harden these off as I don't have any more shaded areas I can put them in and just leave them out there. They would be wilted over in 15 minutes in direct sun. All of the ones I have in the 10 gallon pots are shaded most of the day, so I just moved them straight from the tent to outside full time. Another reason is that several of these were 2 or 3 in a pot and I had to separate them, tearing a lot of the roots. I like them to have a good root system before I put them out full time.
