    Here's what I've got in mine:

    Neem oil
    Sulfur based powder fungicide
    Some other fungicide (Cant use it on Drosera or Pings)
    Rubbing alcohol
    Hydrogen Peroxide
    2 Ton Nuclear warhead

    As for the rubbing alcohol, I've done both diluted and non diluted. Dries pretty quick either way. I've only used it on Neps and Sarrs.

    Thanks for chiming in their FReNcH3

    But could you tell us what each of your products are used for and specifically for what plants.

    We'd all hate it if we used something that killed more than the bugs or fungus

    I bought a cactus. A week later it died. And I got depressed, because I thought, Damn. I am less nurturing than a desert.

    Yeah, I just use the Isopropyl Alcohol undiluted. It's quite safe, whereas the "safe" Pyrethin I used on one of my Neps had melted my U. alpina which was next to it and got just a little over spray.

    If you want to attempt to make a little longer lasting alcohol solution you can add other stuff to the alcohol like dish soap or let some cigarette butts float in it and turn the alcohol dark, bugs don't like the nicotine or the soap.

    Neem - used on everything, against mites, springtails, fungus you name it, it's been hit by it

    The other fungicide is Consan20 - I use this on Sarrs and Neps, seed to adult works VERY well for me

    Rubbing alcohol - have used it on fungus

    Hydrogen peroxide - have used it on fungus

    Sulfur based fungicide - used as a preventative in all soil mixes and in medium for fridge dormancy

    I use most of these in conjunction to one another; like for example I treat my dormancy medium with both the neem and the sulfur based fungicide. For powdery mildew I'll use rubbing alcohol + neem + hydrogen peroxide.
    None of these combined have ever had ill effects on my plants.

    The only side effect has been with sundews and Pings, they DO NOT appreciate the consan 20.

    - Ortho Systemic Insect Killer - kills everything (including mites). Have used on Sarracenia (no impact on growth), Cephalotus (no impact on growth) and Drosera (major impact - either weakened or killed plants). This is apparently being phased out due to its toxicity to people, animals. Have not been able to locate any on shelves recently. However, related products by Ortho (& others) with the same active are still available. (active = acephate)

    - Bayer Advanced Complete Insect Killer - kills most pests (not mites). Have used on Sarracenia (no impact on growth), Cephalotus (no impact on growth) and Drosera (minor to no impact on growth) (active = imidacloprid).

    - CO2 - should kill most pests - proven to work on centipedes & aphids. Apparently may not be effective on mites.

    - Green Light Neem Concentrate - recently purchased some based on all the positive comments in the forums. Have not used yet.
    All the best,
