    I use neem and neem-based products and I always use a dab of dish soap in order for the oil to evenly coat my leaves. I'll do this WELL into flowering too.

    I use it too. My only other suggestion, is that you don't spray them right before lights out. It's not a good idea to leave plants sitting in the dark, wet, because your asking for mold/fungus problems, especially during flowering. I spray mine either right before the lights come on(about an hour) or while the lights are on. If they're on, I make sure to back them off a few inches, til the plants have dried. Then bring 'em back down.

    well i did a spray today during the darkness about an hour into it and i read the temps at 75 i did have a small fan on them during the sparying but turned off like 1hour after do think i will be ok didnt want to spary during on because i read it may burn the leafs but if i do raise like you mention might just work will have to try next time for now i hope they will be fine.

    I'm going to have to disagree with Jawbrodt. Spraying your plants with an oil will burn leaves or at minimum cause stress when the lights are on. Its like applying suntan lotion to a baby and putting them in the sun all day.....Not a good idea. I mainly use Dynagro, but dip my clones before transplanting in half strength (from what it says on the bottle) solution in a 5 gal bucket. Spraying never seems to get all the nooks and crannies. This is why if you are spraying you most definately want to use a drop of dawn or equivalent as a surfactant to get the neem to coat as much of the leaf as possible. Are you spraying for mite control? If you don't mind the toxicity in your room for a couple days, I highly recommend a floramite or avid or both alternated. Just make sure to wear a proper safety attire. (Tyvek suit, rubber gloves, goggles, respirator) That stuff kills 100% of mites and you can spray with the lights on because it is not phototoxic (meaning it will not burn). Hope this helps. Peace.

    the label also says if you don't have dish soap use Dyna-Gro Liquid Pro-TeKt. Any thing like "Coco Wet" or Humboldt Sticky will allow the oil to mix with water and be sprayed. Dish soap isn't my number one choice.

    BTW you can spray neem up to 2 weeks before harvest, floramite you would not want to spray after two weeks into bloom.

    yea I kind of tough he was wrong since local shop guy said not to during direct light and he said wet betty versus soap was a better mix I have whiteflys,aphids, and some other kind can't remember the name did like 1/4 but sprayed most of it even on top soil can't wait to see how the results will be this morning.

    I used floramite only 1 time BAD mistake! If you treat your plants with floramite do it 3 times 3 days apart.
    If they are still present after the 3rd time use avid 3 more times and they should be gone.
    But... keep your grow clean, if you work out in your yard change your cloths and wash your hands, don't ask your friends to come in and check them out..
    If you get clones from some were else treat them with some Dynagro.
    I hate mites!!!

    I have a good way to get rid of white flies, get some thing Yellow put some oil on it (veg, oil olive oil etc..) hang it close by your plants. Come back the next day and see for yourself It works..
    Peace Tim :weed:

    I can agree with that. I've never had a mite problem,(knock on wood) and never had to spray under HID's, so never really had to deal with light burn issues. I use neem once or twice during veg(fluoros), as preventative maintenance, the plants absorb it, and carry it with them until harvest. I've never had a reason to use during flowering, so never looked into it any further than that. :)
