Optimum Hydroponix® Silicate is an easy to use liquid formulation of potassium silicate (K2Si) which is to be added to a final pre-mixed nutrient solution to provide supplemental silicon and potassium.
Applying silicon has been shown to enhance plant growth and increase tolerance to environmental stresses such as cold, heat or drought-like conditions by helping to reinforce plant cell walls. Especially useful in hydroponic applications where adequate supplies of silicon are not readily available.
Shake well before use.
Never add Optimum Hydroponix® Silicate directly to a nutrient concentrate; add only to the final nutrient solution.
Adjust pH levels to around 5.8.
Hydroponics: Mix 1 ml of Optimum Hydroponix® Silicate per litre of nutrient solution.
Soil/Coco Media Applications: Mix 10 ml of Optimum Hydroponix® Silicate per 20 litres of water with every watering.
Soluble Potash (K20) - 3.0%
Silicon dioxide (SiO2) - 8.0%
