Cold-pressed neem oil works well for whitefly on anything that might bare table fare. If you decide to acquire some, let me know & I'll share how I mix/use it.

The best product I've used is by Dyna-Gro. Watch ..... I'll get accused of being on their payroll or a stockholder again because I recommended one of their products. Lol

Dyna-Gro packages cold-pressed neem oil.

In a 1 quart spritzer bottle, mix:
1 pint very hot water
1 teaspoon neem oil (cold-pressed or virgin oil only - Dyna-Gro packages a very good product)
4 drops Murphy's oil soap (or dishsoap)
Shake well and add 1 pint of 70% isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol.
Spritz
Shake frequently while spritzing. Be sure to cover the entire plant. Don't spray in full sun. A little more Murphy's is ok, but unnecessary if using the isopropyl. Repeat at 1-2 week intervals as needed.

Hi buylady,
if you are posting 2 back to back it gets fickle. You need to change the original title. something simple like Just adding something small

..RE: HELP how do i get rid of white flies on potted plants?? (this is an example,added the question marks at end)

other times its just the web site acting up.. :)

Hope that helps.
