Morning everyone.

During the winter months I grow weeds for my tort (clover, dandelion, plantain primarily). Indoor growing presents major pest control issues. Right now I think I have a serious case of aphids and white fly. Obviously I cannot use pesticides. I am very reluctant to use Neem (and have not done so yet). Any thoughts? Water and organic soap? I may try ladybugs also but I am not sure this will be enough on its own. Thanks.

You can try a couple of things:

1) You can wash them away with a kitchen sink sprayer.
2) You can mix a small amount of dish detergent (I prefer Dawn) in a spray bottle of water and spray the plants. When the pests disappear, just give the plants a shower to wash away any soap residue.

That Dawn works
It killed the critters that were sucking my HIBISCUS bushes dry
