Oil = Sunburn, not measuring is...well you fill in the blank.because I mixed phyton with vegetal oil, I don't know why I did that..) .. and needles in the back are perfect..
When does your Winter begin?Yes, I flushed everything multiple times.. I did it every day.. How will I notice that is recovering?
Well that's the best news all dayWinter is finishing here, spring coming.. a couple of maples already opening the buds and some pines elongating candles
Phyton being systemic, flushing can only help what has not been absorbed, not much help reallyYes, I flushed everything multiple times.. I did it every day.. How will I notice that is recovering?
Yeh I've heard of adding a drop or 2 of dish detergent before, but never vegetable oil.If pure vegetable oil was used, it could be plugging the stomata and could be slowly suffocating the plant.
This needs a rapid response, otherwise it's game over.
@Bonsai Nut I have not had these issues with junipers and neem oil. They do turn greener because the neem+emulsifier dissolve the cuticle wax. I can keep them in full sun without damage.
Can I know the amounts and ratios you use? Maybe we can compare them.

Volk oil will scorch in Sun, I've yet to purchase neem oil. I'm glad your alls experience with it
was better than the discontinued Volk oil, both horticultural oils. I wonder what makes one
more Sun tolerant than the other?
Nutshell ^ makes a lot of sense, thanks for taking the time to open that nutshell.Conifers have strong cuticle wax...
The closer a material is to cuticle wax, the less damage it does, but the harder it is to get into a watery solution. I think anyone who has ever stored neem oil, remembers the gunk on the inside of their spray bottles. Heat that gunk with some warm/hot water, and it can re-dissolve again. That's actually the good stuff.
I hope this makes some sense.
