This indian pest control & medicinal oil has a track record of some 4,000 years--its Sanskrit name, arishta, means "reliever of sickness." As neem only affects those insects feeding on your prize plant, it will neither harm the predatory beneficial insects, nor your four legged pets or favorite birds. Not only does neem extract inhibit insect mating (female fertility is reduced) & larval development, but any washed off into the soil seems to combat fungal root rot problems.

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
