    You can get the Schultz Garden Safe stuff anywhere (Home Depot, OSH, Lowes, WalMart etc.). The concnetrate makes like a gallon from a tablespoon or teaspoon (I forget which). Just buy a spray bottle from the 99 cent store and you're set.

    Any local hydroponics store will have the brand that you're looking at.

    I have a bottle of this stuff (in liquid form) and some dews and a ceph with aphids. It's the green light neem extract. Do I dilute the contents of the bottle or just spray the plants directly with the pure contents of the bottle?
    Thanks!

    Follow the directions (hopefully it has directions). If it doesn't, check the manufacturer/distributor's website for directions.

    I've also had good results with pyrethrin based products if you cannot find neem oil.

    I used neem oil on my collection the other day. I used the 100% concentrate. I mixed in 4mL of pure neem then added a liter of water and enough drops of Dawn dish soap to make the neem not stick to the sides. Worked well on my Neps, dews, pings and orchids. Took care of my spider mite problem in a flash. I'm going to do a weekly treatment seeing as I have a ton of this stuff.
    Trying to rebuild. Feel free to PM me with questions.

    I use the Schultz Garden Safe brand concentrate found at Home Depot.

    Works great!

    I was researching neem and thought I would share:

    100% neem oil must be mixed with soap to spray. It is a very effective contact insecticide, fungicide, miticide and nematicide. It is a very chemically complex and not fully understood.

    "Clarified hydrophobic extract of neem" is neem oil that has been stripped of one of its most effective insecticides, azadirachtin. Its often sold pre-mixed with petroleum distillates to aid in application.

    There are also a number of products that contain azadirachtin as its active ingredient. It often contains very high levels of "other ingredients" which are often harmful to CP's. It is a contact insecticide (does not need to be consumed to be effective) labeled as a insect repellent, antifeedent and growth regulator.

    I like that link. It explains how Neem Oil works. The unfortunate thing is that it doesn't wotk on aphids, which is what I see from time to time.
