Neem works OK but for aphids you can make your own with 40/60 cows milk and water. A few drops of Dawn dish soap in a spray bottle of water will work also. Vinegar, castille soap and water is another DIY aphid solution.

For a larger crop I use a pesticide called Azamax. It is a derivative of Neem oil. It's safe to use on vegetables and flowers and can be used up to 10 days before harvest.

cows milk + water is not the same as neem oil. Neem comes from the neem plant. milk is used for powdery milk. neem used for insects. keep in mind neem is systemic, meaning it is ingested by the plant and runs through its vascular system vs being a surface treatment like spinosad or milk.

also, may i recommend starting a grow thread + searching. starting threads on every new question you have clogs search and creates noise on the timeline, which reduces the quality of the forum overall. don't take this as me being rude. i've seen you start multiple new threads that go nowhere (clogs search results) and ask questions on those threads that have been answered hundreds of times prior. consider this me empowering you to be successful.

So it's probably better to use something natural as cows milk! I read dish soap can hurt the plant I seen someone's results maybe they used to much soap! I don't k ow exactly if there aphids I'll upload a good picture tomorrow!

You're OK... Don't worry. Yeah, start a grow thread there and then you can contain the bulk of your questions there as well as journal your grow progress.

@tobh gives excellent guidance above. For questions like your aphids one, use the search function, it works very well on this forum and that question has undoubtedly been answered many times over during the lifetime of this forum.
