You rightly said - neem cake is a organic fertilizer but at the same time it acts as a fungicide, pesticide and protects plants from ants etc. I use neem cake at the time of potting the mixture. I add a handful of it in every pot. This is my way of doing it but since I am an amateur, you please take the advice of GG.
Neem cake is a natural fetlizer. yea i use this. It has adequate quantity of NPK in organic form for plant growth. Neem cake contains Nitrogen 2.0% to 5.0% where as the 17-17-17 or 19-19-19 contains 17% and 19% . This is what i found please correct me if i am wrong..
