Liquid Silicon (5l)
Silicon is a beneficial plant nutrient, found in virtually all natural soils but not – until now – in hydroponic nutrient solutions. Silicon will strengthen the plant walls producing stronger healthier plants with massive root systems and increased resistance to pests and disease. Liquid Silicon is highly beneficial to plants in the range of 10–30 ppm in the nutrient solution. It is not included, and cannot be included, at these levels, in nutrient concentrates. It needs to be added as a separate component by the grower. Liquid Silicon can be added to nutrient tanks every time a fresh batch is made up.

Liquid Silicon is a soluble form of silica that’s added to nutrient solutions to help protect plants against pests and diseases. It strengthens cell walls and root systems, improves nutrient uptake, prevents toxic build-up of nutrients in plant tissue, reduces water loss through transpiration, increases uptake of available CO2 and increases chlorophyll production leading to darker green leaves – all of which contributes to increased yields.
