    Default Answered: Neem oil on seedlings

    How early do you all start your regular neem oil sprays? Can a seedling handle it?

    I'm still confused as to why... is it indoor or outdoor? Is it in the hope that Neem goes systemic?

    I start from day one but avoid the seedlings as best I can, but honestly Ive not had a single issue even spraying lights on since using the soap nuts

    By the time they have there first true leaves they just get sprayed bro

    Thats just how I do it btw not a suggestion but yes seedlings handle the soap nut recipe just fine in my experience I just avoid the seedlings week 1

    Keep any pests at bay. Also a great fungicide not that I think it would be an issue.

    I honestly have no idea, hence my questions

    I can understand Neem if an issue is present but had never considered it as a preventative measure.... I'm curious now

    Redz has done a great thread on integrated pest management but neem sprays is just one part of the integration with the soil mix and any biocontrol agents as other arms of the IPM.

    The main one is in the soil, neem meal, chitin ect.

    The amount of benefits from neem is mind blowing and would take far to long to write but yeah integrated pest and disease management is the key function in this instance

    It's a cheap pest insurance policy
