    sounds like a plan,shame i just brought the neem and it was not cheap but i would rather try and solve this without the use of chemicals,i tried a insecticide on my plants early this year and it set my plants back months,it was in an aerosol and i think i held it too close,maybe the cold gas i dunno but they are only just started growing well again,thanks again for your input

    I have used neem on my cp seedlings without a problem... Then again, I had some very low yields... Kinda hard to tell, especially since the seed in question had the reputation of being low yield anyways... I haven't seen any repressed growth from using neem.

    It's a matter of timing. As you know from developmental biology there are "critical periods" when aspects of growth can be most adversely affected.
