HELP! I think plants were burned by Full strength Neem Oil?

  • Sour Diesel from clone + a younger Blue Dream from seed
  • Method: Organic soil Fox Farm Ocean Forest Soil
  • Vessels: from solo cup to black felt pot which I covered with white cloth
  • PH of Water is 7
  • Outdoor
  • No Light system
  • Temps; Day, Night LA this summer HOT
  • Humidity; Day, Night
  • Ventilation system; No; outdoors

SO I am out of town working and my friend sprayed neem oil on my plants last night but did not dilute it first. She came out today and this is how plants look now.

She is freaking out but Im just glad no one’s dead, she was crying so much when she called me about it just now.

Anything she can do now or are they goners?
Was thinking she can flush them and spray leaves with distilled water maybe?

Cut out the effected parts, and yea maybe try to rinse your plant when it gets a little cooler to get rid of some of that oil

Just for your future plants, if you’re going to use neem, use it in veg only. Don’t spray it on flowering plants even if it’s diluted. Use captain jacks dead bug on flowering plants and it won’t affect the smoke at all.


yeah i know. she didn’t. i think it happened because she ran out of captain jacks.

any other ways to salvage them other than spraying with distilled water (in the shade) and maybe doing a flush tonight?
