Botanicare Silica Blast is a beneficial nutrient supplement to be used in conjunction with Botanicare nutrients or your preferred standard nutrient program. It strengthens your plants stems and stabilizes the pH in recirculating hydrogardens. Silica Blast is ideal for use in container gardening or soil less hydrogardening applications. The silicate in this product encourages the formation of a silicate matrix which reduces transpiration and may allow plants to continue
photosynthesis in adverse growing conditions.
Sodium Silicate and Potassium Silicate
To be used in conjunction with standard fertilizer or hydrogarden nutrient program.
Use 1 teaspoon per gallon of water (2.5 – 5 ml / 4 liters) every, or every other watering.
Mid size plants use 1/2 teaspoon per gallon (2.5 ml/4 liters). Mature plants use 1 teaspoon per gallon (5 ml / 4 liters). Apply to reservoir every 5 – 7 days. Adjust pH to 6.0. One teaspoon per gallon of Silica Blast (5 ml / 4 liters) per 4 liters (1 gallon) of water will achieve 105 ppm silicate.
