A few days ago i posted a thread about one of my phal's having mites and now i noticed 2 of them were infected. I was told to get a miticide to get rid of them so i looked around and found one on the orchid section. But it doesnt say is for orchids but it says its for all kind of plants including house plants and it supposed to kill scales, fungus gnats, aphids, whiteflies, mites, thrips, mealybugs and leafminers and it also kills the eggs. The name of it, its All seasons Horticultural Spray Oil.
Active ingridients Petroleum Oil(superior Paraffinic type U.R. Nub, 92%) 2.00%
Other ingredients 98.00
has anyone used this before and does it work!!! i'm afraid to use it on my orchids lol
its a spray bottle so i dont have to dillute it or anything i just have to spray them. i sprayed them this morning and the leaves look shiny now lol. when should i spray them again?? i think i will spray them next monday
When you are spraying your orchids with anything containing oil...keep them out of the sun for about 3-5 days. That way the oils won't cook your leaves. After the oil is gone, you can move them back into the sunlight. Usually, with new bug stuff...treat a couple leaves, if they don't die you should be okay.
i sprayed all of my orchids just in case and i also sprayed all the other houseplants i have. they seem ok so i dont think it will hurt them. i usually have them under light but today i left them on a bright room and no sun or lights just to be on the safe side. is it ok if i spray them once a week??
I just noticed some possible mites today on my plants and was also curious as to how often to treat the plant.
