Using garlic + chili peppers as pesticide on flowering plants?
    #623805 - 05/21/12 07:56 PM (4 years, 6 months ago)

What I want to do is mix a couple habaneros with a head of garlic in about 1/2 lt of water in the blender, then filter and spray the affected plants. It has showed very promising results on a HBWR infected with whitefly, but what I'm worried about is if it'll be safe to smoke the buds after I spray?

Inhaling pepper fumes is not a pleasant experience, I don't imagine garlic-tasting bud is either, so does anybody know how long (if at all) it will take for the peppers + garlic to be degraded / eliminated from the plant?

The plants wont abosorb, to the best of my knowledge, the Capsaicin from the peppers.  All you have to do is rinse your plants off with water and a wetting agent.

Thanks a bunch! Will ordinary dish soap work as a wetting agent?

Edit: silly question, of course it should, never mind :toungue:

Yes it would work.  But when putting in on plants I prefer to buy the biodegradable kind.  And it only takes a few drops per gallon.
