    So i picked up a "mystery" bottle of pest control from local hydro store today... probably going to return unless someone can actually clarify wtf i got? could get into details of Why this was only product available at the time, and am happy to discuss in pm. Anyways picked up a product labeled as "Natural Plant Wash" with a logo of T.S.K. "100% natural" Product of Canada. Beyond that there is basically Zero information, website listed on package doesnt exist, Has anyone here seen this? encountered this product? can provide any extended information? I am not a retard and Will not spray something on my plants without knowing what it is, and what the possible effects are from it... including pics of product bottle and packaging... hoping someone can identify it? If not, will most likely return and look for an alternative. (problem in question is 2 spotted spider mites, used to use mighty wash, but seems to of been removed from local retailers shelves..)

    if product is a mystery for you but have good method for 2 spotted spider mites by all means comment with your personal/recommended solution to getting rid of them... 20171107_022641.jpg 20171107_022649.jpg 20171107_022655.jpg 20171107_022717.jpg 20171107_022734.jpg

    all i could find is that the company is a canadian front for a chinese manufacturer.....
    i'd be fucked if i ever put anything on my plants without a complete list of ingredients first. if your formula is so super secret that we can't know whats in it, fuck it, i don't need it

    thats kinda how i feel... if theres absolute no way to verify even "some" of the ingredients used... fairly sure im better off taking it back n looking for something else.

    simply put, small town, know ppl at hydro store where acquired, have known for many many years... even then with solid feedback that its "good" still dont trust it/like it due to the fact of ZERO info of whats in it. bought on good faith, researched when arrived home, when as many questions arise that have, best choice is to turn to forums to see if any others have used/looked into said product, upon no verification, goes back tomrrow

    i don't know the guys at your hydro store, but most "hydo store guys" i have met, don't know a fucking thing about growing anything. they work in a store where they probably get commission. the salesman came in, talked a good line of shit, and they bought it, now they want you to buy it.
    explain to them, in a nice way, why you don't want it, and would never buy it or any product that you can't at least look up the ingredient to. you're going to be ingesting the plant you put this stuff on.....do you trust a chinese company to have your best interests at heart?

    i'd love a job at a hydro store, but i'd last about 3 days.
    "no, don't buy that expensive piece of shit, buy this, its the same shit, 1/3 the price.".........
    "no, don't buy those expensive ass bottled nutes, get these dry salts and mix your own, get a years worth for 50 bucks."
    "fired, what do you mean i'm fired? "

    lol totally appreciate your rant, but at same time... hate to tell yah... not really the case for where i am from.... have delt with said place for nearly a decade n have developed a good report.... 95%+ of the time they are spot on for accuracy, but with that said, the nature of who i am... i Have to verify accuracy of info provided... and in this particular case... i cant. simply due to the fact of no documentation, and the website on packaging... simply doesnt exist... so i am not as quick to place a cross-hair on those i interact with as yourself.... when 90-95% of info given is exceptionally accurate... not so quick to condem... altho with that in mind, its not like i take their word as gospel, i research everything and try to see the whole picture, in this particular case, it proves to be somewhat difficult simply due to the fact, there is no information, website listed.. doesnt exist...

    you, my good person, are a lucky individual. i've been to many hydro stores, i make it a point to stop at any new one i see if i'm on the road, and after asking a few questions, most of the employees don't know shit. almost universally, if you ask the right questions, it becomes obvious that the ones who know their shit actually grow. thats maybe 10 % of the ones i've met. i realize there are a lot of them i haven't met, and perhaps i've been unlucky and just met the few who don't know wtf they're talking about, but which ever is the case, thats my personal experience.
