Optimum Hydroponix Silicate
Optimum Hydroponix® Silicate is an easy to use liquid formulation of potassium silicate (K2Si) to provide supplemental silicon and potassium.
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.
Soluble Potash (K20) - 3.0%
Silicon dioxide (SiO2) - 8.0%
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.
