Growth Technology Liquid Silicon
Growth Technology – Liquid Silicon provides your plants with soluble silica – a naturally occurring substance found in soil that strengthens and boosts your plants in a number of beneficial ways. Stronger stems, better disease and drought resistance and increased nutrient uptake! Recommended.
- Growth Technology – great value-for-money additives.
- Helps build cell walls for stronger stems and roots.
- Reduces water loss through leaves.
- Increases nutrient uptake and absorption of CO2.
- Can be used in any grow-medium.
- Can be used in any type of grow-system.
- Can be used as a pH UP additive.
- This is a corrosive material. A Safety Data Sheet is available under the attachments tab above.
How Liquid Silicon Works
Growth Technology – Liquid Silicon is a very effective plant improver for use right the way through your grow from cutting to harvest. Growth Technology Liquid Silicon provides your plants with a form of soluble silica which is a naturally occurring substance found in soils. It is used by plants to strengthen cell-walls which increases plants resistance to fungi and insects. Liquid Silicon helps to build noticeably stronger and thicker stems and roots and helps with uptake of nutrients and absorption of CO2. Growth Technology – Liquid Silicon reduces the water loss through leaves (transpiration) which can help guard against wilting. Liquid Silicon is also highly alkaline and so can be used to increase pH of nutrient solutions.
Using Liquid Silicon
Use Growth Technology – Liquid Silicon right the way through the plant’s life from cutting to harvest. Liquid Silicon is suitable for use with plants grown in any medium and in any type of grow-system. Use 1ml/Litre of nutrient solution/feed but mix the Liquid Silicon very thoroughly in 5 litres of water before adding it to your reservoir or feeding water to ensure that it will be distributed evenly within the reservoir. Liquid Silicon will increase the TDS (CF/EC/PPM) and also the pH of your nutrient solution. It will be necessary to adjust the TDS and pH back to the correct levels after adding it.
As with all nutrients, boosters and additives, never mix them together in their concentrated form (i.e. straight out of the bottle). Always add each nutrient, booster or additive to your reservoir or feed water in turn, giving the solution a good stir to mix it in before adding the next one.
Aggressives are types of substance which can cause damage to skin and clothing and can cause burns. This group of products includes, but is not limited to: pH Up (potassium hydroxide), pH Down (nitric acid, phosphoric acid, citric acid), Liquid oxygen (hydrogen peroxide) and products containing liquid forms of silica/silicon. Always add straight to your reservoir water and mix well straight away. Do not mix aggressive substances with any other product while in their concentrated form. When using, always wear suitable protection (gloves, goggles etc.) and keep out of the reach of children at all times.
Recommended dosage – 1ml/Litre.
Contains 6% Potassium Silicate.
