Clean Slate is used primarily as a rootzone cleaning and conditioning agent. Clean Slate will naturally improve overall plant health by effectively cleaning and sanitizing the rootzone. A clean, disease-free, rootzone promotes fine feeder roots, allowing the plant to uptake oxygen, nutrients and water at an increased rate, leading to healthier plants overall. This allows them protection from attacks of most common airborne pests, diseases, soil borne fungal and bacterial pathogen outbreaks.
CLEAN SLATE does not promote beneficial bacterial growth, so if youre trying to promote beneficial bacteria growth, this is probably not a desirable solution to use. CLEAN SLATE should be applied as a stand alone rootzone treatment. It has no systemic qualities so it doesnt require any holding period before harvesting.
Preventative Dosage Rate:
Add 0.5ml per gallon of nutrient solution weekly or when solutions are replaced. Apply this rate for any added water to the tank after the initial dose. Clean Slate can be used as a maintenance measure to assist the plant to keep most problems from developing in all stages of its growth.
Maintenance Dosage Rate:
For intense dosing of substrate systems to offset rootzone problems, total saturation of the substrate weekly with a pre-dosed tank mix of 8mls per gallon would be recommended. One application should be enough, but daily dosing would be advisable. Continued treatment is recommended until improvement in plant health is visible.
For re-circulating systems, dose nutrient tank at 8ml per gallon for every gallon of water in the tank.
