Optimum Hydroponix Silicate Max
Optimum Hydroponix® Silicate MAX is a concentrated jelly form of potassium silicate (K2Si) to provide supplemental silicon and potassium.
Optimum Hydroponix® Silicate MAX is a concentrated jelly form of potassium silicate (K2Si) which is to be added to a nutrient solution* to provide supplemental silicon and potassium. Silicate Max must be pre-diluted before adding to a nutrient solution mix
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) - 8.0%
Silicon dioxide (SiO2) - 20.8%
Shake well before use.
Never add Optimum Hydroponix® Silicate MAX directly to a nutrient concentrate; add only to the final nutrient solution.
Adjust pH levels to around 5.8. \
Hydroponics: Mix 7.5 ml of Optimum Hydroponix® Silicate MAX per 20 litres of nutrient solution.
Soil/Coco Media Applications: Mix 0.20 ml of Optimum Hydroponix® Silicate MAX per litre of water (or 4 ml per 20L) with every watering.
Note: It is suggested that the recommended application rates for this concentrate be pre-dissolved in a small amount of room temperature water before adding to a nutrient solution.
