Enhance Your Plant's Health and Defence with Green Planet Plant Guard Potassium Silicate

Green Planet Plant Guard Potassium Silicate, available in 1L, 5L, and 20L options, is a valuable supplement that helps improve plant health, development, and natural resistance against environmental stresses and pathogens. Give your plants the protection they need for stronger cell walls and better productivity, especially in hydroponic systems.

Features and Benefits

  • Strengthens cell walls: Silicate in Plant Guard promotes rigid cell walls for more robust stalks and branches capable of supporting heavy fruits during the flowering stage.
  • Enhances nutrient and water transportation: Rigid cellular development from silicate allows for better transportation of water and nutrients throughout the plant, promoting faster and healthier growth.
  • Increases resistance to environmental stresses: Strengthened cell walls heighten plants' ability to withstand high and low temperatures and other environmental stresses.
  • Improves defence against pathogens: As plants use silica to build up cells, they become more resistant to pathogens such as rust and powdery mildew, while unused silica accumulates in the cell walls' outer layer to deter pests.
  • Optimal for hydroponic systems: Plant Guard ensures hydroponically grown plants receive the ideal amount of potassium silicate for proper natural defence development.

How to Use

  1. Add 0.5 ml/L (2 ml/Gal) of Plant Guard to your fertiliser each time you fertilise in conjunction with your regular feeding schedule.
  2. Discontinue Plant Guard use two weeks before harvest.
  3. Always dilute Plant Guard separately before mixing with other nutrients in your solution.
