    um, u talkin bout u dusted the leavez, or jus the soil...or both, lol :rolleyes2: and for what reazon are u applying it-? well, either way, DE (me LUV de! :biggrin: great source of silica!) is a heavy desiccant (absorbz moisture), so if/when uzed on leavez, it can affect transpiration balance...but if jus dusted on soil, like for gnatz, u want it to stay on there for at least a couple dayz with no watering at all, cuz after it absorbz itz limit of moisture from the water, it losez itz desiccant propertiez & has to be reapplied...hope this helpz :thumbsup: ppp

    hmm...well, this is just me own 2 ctz mind u, as i've never uzed de directly on a plant, but i'd say it'd be ok to leave on overnite, then rinse off, let dry, then apply the neem, which can g'head & stay on...oh, and me forgot about spinosad...for simplicity, i'll skip over the scientific mechanismz of it, but it'z 100% natural, and reg folk have been uzin in outdoor gardenz for eonz...well, decadez at least, lol :thumbsup: ppp
