    That's what I thought DaveyJones. That's why I thought it could only be so harmful. But just to be safe I ordered in Neem Oil and it is here but it is in concentrate. On the directions it says to mix 1.5 teaspoons of Neem Oil with 1.5 teaspoons of dish washing soap in one gallon of water. The dish washing soap being an emulsifier. Is there something I can use that is a little bit more Nepenthes/Sundew/Orchid friendly other than the dish soap or will it not pose any problem?

    Thanks a ton!

    I'd also lean towards mites. My singalana was ravaged by those demons and looked similar to yours. It took several months for it to recover and pitcher again. I've had good results with neem oil, just be sure to get as thorough as coverage as possible, and I'd retreat again according to the directions.

    So is that a yes I need to add the dish soap to it? I just don't want to do any more damage.

    As far as the soap, I'm not any help. My neem came ready to spray, and I don't have any experience with soap.
