Neem Oil Not Dissolving?
    #490199 - 10/21/10 10:41 PM (6 years, 5 months ago)

I just added like 1 and 1/2 tsp of neem oil to 1 qt of water with 3 little drops of dawn liquid dish soap, and im kinda confused and pissed the fuck off

How is neem oil supposed to dissolve into water if its an oil? Its ot fucking dissolving one bit but instead it is just floating to the top and if i were to spray, its not even neem oil its just water

and you are going to have to continuously mix as you spray because as you said it isnt ever going to fully mix

IF you put in a blender or use a cake mixer or something you will be able to create what you would call a "slurry" Which is basically a milkshake of oil and water, takes a little work, but it can be done. And even without the dishsoap if you really wanted.

I dont got a blender :shrug:

The recipe said 1 and 1/2tsp of neem oil to 1 qt of water and 1/3tsp of dish soap, and i put just 3  tiny drops of dish soap in there :shrug:

I guess i'll just shake it up real good for days and see if i can ever get it to at least the "slurry" stage

But i been trimmin at my friends house for awhile and im worrying about spider mites because he clearly has them on his outdoor sativa hes trying to still finish and his indoor clones so i need to spray with neem oil badly

If you can get your hands on a product called Avid use that. Neem oil is some of the most useless crap out.

If you don't mind shelling out a few bucks. Get some yucca extract.

I think silica(AN barricade, Protekt, Grotek, etc) works well too I know someone who uses it with Neem but I haven't tested it myself.
