Our Plant Safety Test
The photos below were taken in the Florida Keys. Using our liquid formula, the spray application temperature was 87 degrees F. Over the next four days the heat index was 106 F degrees with an air temperature of 91 degrees F. These conditions would normally burn a plant by the next day using standard summer horticultural spray oils that are available at agricultural chemical supply houses.
Photos were taken to document that in the sub tropics, even sensitive plants like Plumbago, Hibiscus, Staghorn ferns, Bougainvillea, Orchids, Gardenias and fruit trees as Bananas, Citrus, Mango and Guava had no adverse effects. Even the blooms on these plant materials had no signs of burning.
Not only was this group of plants treated with our liquid formulas but also treated with a tank mix of a typical agricultural fertilizer solution. This tank mix also contained a slow release liquid and a spreader, wetting, penetrant agent. Again, there was no signs of plant burn.
 AVOID spraying during high temperature (above 90°F). Many oil-based products must be sprayed in morning or late afternoon to minimize the potential for leaf burn.
| YES! CAN SPRAY any time of the day, even in direct sunlight and high heat.|
 DO NOT apply to known sensitive plant species such as impatiens flowers, fuchsia flowers, hibiscus flowers, some rose flowers, ornamental olive trees or some carnation.
| YES! CAN SPRAY different types of sensitive plant species. See photos above.|
 DO NOT spray around fish, bog gardens and ornamental fish ponds because many horticultural oils are toxic to fish.
| YES! Safe to spray around fish.|
 AVOID spraying flowers with open blooms.
| YES! Very safe around flowers.|
 AVOID spraying tender succulent plants, and is sprayed must be rinsed off afterwards with water.
| YES! No problem around tender plants.|
 AVOID spraying different types of Spruce trees, as it might remove the blue blooms.
| AVOID spraying Spruce trees.|
