Shogun-Silicon

Shogun-Silicon

SHOGUN Silicon Silicon naturally fortifies the structure of plants, toughening cell walls and making it harder for threats to enter. With thicker stems, tougher leaves, and a more robust defence system, plants will be able to support heavier yields - so it’s great to use alongside bloom boosters. Cement-strong structure Once it’s absorbed by plants, silicon works its way into and in between cells. It acts as a kind of “cement”, filling in the microscopic gaps for a sturdier cellular structure. Silicon is naturally abundant in soil, but of course, it needs to be supplemented in other substrates such as hydro and coco coir. This is where SHOGUN Silicon steps in - it’s a highly refined potassium silicate substance that helps to fortify stems, leaves, and branches and increases resistance all around. Powerful plant armourStronger plants are always a benefit, but it’s easy not to realise the true impact that solutions like Silicon can bring. Stronger plants will support higher yields, meaning they won’t bend or wilt under their weight. Failing to prepare your plants for huge fruits, vegetables, and flowers can damage plant structure and make it hard to grow these same yields in future seasons. In the same way, they’ll also stay stronger against the wind - whether it’s an outdoor breeze or a fan in your grow room. Pest and disease resistanceAnother all-encompassing benefit is the increased resistance to pests and disease. Plants treated with SHOGUN Silicon will have tougher cell walls and be harder for insects and bacteria to penetrate. You’ll see fewer infestations: not only does Silicon prevent bugs from getting in, but it can direct extra resources to the area if it senses an attack. Plants are also less susceptible to the mould, mildew, and algae that commonly occurs in hydroponic systems. How to use SHOGUN Silicon?Potassium silicate is a notoriously difficult substance to work with; when poorly mixed, it can clump together and form gooey deposits in your hydroponic tank. However, don’t let this put you off! The benefits absolutely outweigh the work and the team at SHOGUN have worked hard to produce the silkiest solution around. HYDRO Fill your tank approximately 75% with no nutrients. Pre-dilute the nutrients you will need, but wait to add them after SHOGUN Silicon. Pre-dilute your SHOGUN Silicon at a rate of 1ml/L. Add it to your tank and mix thoroughly. After this, reduce your pH to just below 7 (neutral). Slowly add your base nutrients only when Silicon is fully mixed and your pH is at the required level. Mix continuously while you add your base nutrients. COCO Follow the same procedure as with hydro, adding 1ml/L Silicon first and mixing thoroughly before adding your pre-diluted nutrients and stirring continuously. You may then use this mix as you would any other nutrient solution in coco. FOLIAR SPRAY You may also use SHOGUN Silicon as a foliar spray. Dilute at a rate of 5ml/L and ensure that the pH is between 5 and 7. Anything outside this range can harm your plants. For best results in all substrates and growing methods, feed little and often. It’s suitable for use at any time throughout the vegetative and flowering stages. However, we recommend small, regular applications. NOTE FOR DISPOSAL: Potassium silicate is regarded as special waste under UK Control of Pollution regulations. You must not dispose of it down the drain or at a landfill. Disposal must be carried out by a registered waste management company - consult your local waste authority for advice. Where to use SHOGUN Silicon?You’ll experience the best results in hydro and coco since they naturally lack silicon. It’s possible to use SHOGUN Silicon if you’re growing in soil: it may be useful if your soil is particularly susceptible to rot. However, you should only dilute and apply in a foliar spray form as soil is already naturally high in silicon. Why choose SHOGUN Silicon?Strengthens plants on a cellular level; Builds resistance to pests and diseases; Helps to buffer pH; Reduces water loss through leaves; Acts as a natural “cement” for tough structures.

Vitalink-SiliconMax

Vitalink-SiliconMax

Silicon MAX is a highly-concentrated and easily soluble silicon additive. It is designed to be used throughout all stages of plant life. Silicon MAX contains potassium silicate, the best form of silicon for plant uptake. Silicon is highly beneficial to plant health, strengthening cell walls to produce stronger and bigger plants, thicker roots and increased resistance to diseases and stress. It boosts CO2 absorption, chlorophyll production and photosynthesis, resulting in bigger yields and heavier fruits. Supports bigger yields and heavier fruits Designed for easy absorption Strengthens cell walls and toughens your plant's structure Boosts resistance to pests and diseases Silicon MAX is a highly-concentrated and easily soluble silicon additive. It is designed to be used throughout all stages of plant life. Silicon MAX contains potassium silicate, the best form of silicon for plant uptake. Silicon is highly beneficial to plant health, strengthening cell walls to produce stronger and bigger plants, thicker roots and increased resistance to diseases and stress. It boosts CO2 absorption, chlorophyll production and photosynthesis, resulting in bigger yields and heavier fruits.Usage instructions:Silicon MAX is a highly-concentrated silicon additive which is strongly alkaline. You should add it to the water first, mix it, and then add your nutrients. Adjust the pH using VitaLink Essentials pH Down before adding your base nutrients and additives, as Silicon MAX raises the pH. Recommended pH range 5.8-6.5.Use 1ml/L alongside your main nutrients When topping up the nutrient solution dilute Silicon MAX well in water before adding it to the existing solution. Shake well before use.VitaLink’s range of additives is specially designed to give optimum results when used alongside VitaLink nutrients.

Plant Magic Silicon 1L

Plant Magic Silicon 1L

Plant Magic Silicon is a unique blend of potassium silicon and bio-stimulants. When added correctly to your nutrient solution it is a real game-changer. Whilst silicon is not regarded as an essential element for plants to grow, its benefits make it hard to see why it is not used. Introducing silicon to your plants reinforces their cell walls, this strengthens the leaves and stems helping to prevent them from snapping under heavy yields and can help to reduce the need for additional plant supports. Plants will gain far greater protection against heat, cold, drought, intense light and even pests and diseases. This allows you to continue growing even in the harshest of conditions.  How To Use Plant Magic Silicon Silicon is suitable for use in all types of systems and with any growing medium. The Plant Magic feeding schedule suggests using Silicon throughout the entire vegetative period and into the flowering stage until around 2 weeks before harvest. If growing in soil or coco then the recommended dose is 1-2ml per litre, whereas in hydro it is 0.5-1ml per litre. It is important to add Silicon to your nutrient solution correctly otherwise you will not gain the full benefits of using it. - Always add Silicon first and thoroughly mix it before adding any other products. - Next add your remaining nutrients and additives in the usual fashion. - Finally adjust your pH to the desired level. Silicon will raise the pH of your nutrient solution so don't be alarmed if you need to add more pH Down than you are used to!
