Manic Botanix Potassium Silicate

 

 

Manic Botanix Potassium Silicate


 

A must for any good nutrient solution! Silicon (Si) is a beneficial element on many levels, increasing disease and pest resistance, enhancing cell wall strength and integrity, and increasing yield weights and essential oil production.

 

Not all hydroponic silica products are created equal. For instance, the stability of the base silicon used in K Silicate products plays a vital role in ensuring that other elements – particularly iron – aren’t set (locked) in solution. Manic Botanix Silica is sourced from a European based world leader in silicon products and is ideally suited for use in hydroponic settings with high solubility, stability, and absorption properties.

 

Benefits of Si

·      Increased disease resistance

·      Increased resistance to pathogenic airborne fungi (eg. Botrytis)

·      Increased resistance to waterborne pathogens

·      Increased resistance to insects/pests

·      Increased strength in cell structure

·      Increased stress tolerance

·      Increased drought resistance

·      Increased salt tolerance

·      Increased yields
