I have neem oil. I don’t have an organic soap solution. How to use this safely with the plants? I just fill a spray bottle with water and add a drop or two of neem oil and spray on plants, because I don't want to use any dishwash soap. What do I do?

    It is best to spray neem oil OUT of direct sunlight. Follow all instructions on the package, but I usually use a teaspoon to a spray bottle of warm water. Here is an article for more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/pesticides/neem-oil-uses.htm

    Your neem oil should have instructions. If you purchased a generic, no instructions container, I wouldn't use it since you don't know the concentration. Here is an article on neem oil use. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/pesticides/neem-oil-uses.htm
