Testing out SMC Spider Mite Control for Orchids
Today we test a product for orchids which claims that it will get us rid of spider mites and other pests!
🦋 More info below! 🦋
A while back I tested out the SMC original formula on orchids and discovered it was a bit too heavy for orchids, check the original videos here https://youtu.be/49ZgSPrMTVs and the update here https://youtu.be/8axf7L1o8dI
Now SMC had formulated a special blend for Orchids, but does it really work? That is what I tested!
For the most part I discovered that indeed it is lighter than the original formula, but it is heavier than my mineral oil solution. Check out my DIY solution here https://youtu.be/-XKBzEGy_sc It seems to have taken care of the mealy bugs too, but I think it is easier to apply to much, so attention is needed!
As always, whenever testing a new product always try it out on a leaf, or an orchid only! See how it goes and then apply it to other orchids.
NO INGREDIENT LIST SO FAR! 🙁
