- Stimulates the formation of hair from the roots
Bio-Green X force is a silica acid enriched spore fertiliser. This nutrient will boost your chlorophyll production which will have a positive effect on the overall growth, robustness and resilience of your plant. It will reduce the way in which your plants absorb sodium which can lead to salt stress. It will force your plant to take up the maximum amount of potassium and also protect your plant from pest and mould. It can also make your plant more hardy to factors such as draught, UV and temperature changes. You will see stems and stalks grow stronger and thicker to allow them o carry large flowers.
Shake before use.
Use X Force throughout the whole growing cycle in a dose of 10 ml dissolved in 100 litres of water.
Use X Force throughout the whole flowering cycle in a dose of 10 ml dissolved in 100 litres of water.
Add X Force to water but never do the reverse.
The benefits of silica
Silica is abundant in many soils and is a major component of plant tissue, sometimes in even higher concentrations than nitrogen and potassium – two out of the three primary macronutrients. Although vital to plant health, silica is not classified as one of the essential nutrients for plants in general, which can lead some growers to believe it is not necessary to add to a normal feeding regimen. The list of benefits that silica provides to plant health is lengthy. Any grower who is serious about growing strong beastly plants should consider adding silica to their normal fertilization schedule. Some of the most important benefits are:
Stronger cell walls
Silica can be compared to the likes of a liquid bamboo, virtually fortifying cells from the inside out. Cells are the building blocks of the plant’s framework. Strengthening the cell walls helps the plant build strong hearty branches and stems that are reinforced enough to support the weight of the fruit that the plant will eventually produce.
Stronger cells mean bigger stems
Thicker cell walls resulting from silica use create bigger stalks and stems that can uptake and transport more water, nutrients, and plant secretions throughout the plant body, facilitating faster growth rates and bigger plants.
Increased resistance to environmental stress
Since plants lack the immune system that animals rely on to stay healthy, silica helps perform many of the same functions and can be thought of as a super vitamin and an immune support for plants. It contributes to areas such as:
- Climate: The addition of silica helps plants withstand extreme temperatures, whether hot or cold. This is especially helpful for outdoor growers that experience hot midday peaks or low temperatures at night.
- Drought: Silica forms a protective coating on an intracellular level that decreases the amount of water loss through transpiration, making plants less likely to suffer as dramatically during drought conditions. It also enables them to continue functioning during high-temperature or low-moisture conditions and reduces the amount of shock they experience in such extreme cases.
Increased resistance to pathogens
When a plant is fed a soluble form of silica, the plant accumulates the silica around the infected site forming selectively fortified areas that can fend off fungal infections such as rust, pythium and powdery mildew. As a resistance measure, the plant uses the silica to build up an additional mineral barrier, essentially lining the cells, making it more difficult for diseases and plant pathogens to make their way inside the plant.
Increased resistance to pests
Silica accumulates in the epidermal cell walls of leaves, making it harder for biting and sucking bugs to damage the plant. Deposits of silicic acid within the cells act as an additional barrier to sap sucking insects. Foliar feeding is the best way to ensure the silica gets directly absorbed into the leaves where it can be immediately used to combat pests.
Enhanced metabolic functions
Plants grown with the use of soluble silica are shown to have higher concentrations of chlorophyll in their leaf tissue compared to plants grown without it. It also enables them to make more efficient use of carbon dioxide (CO2), resulting in lush healthy green foliage with excellent leaf structure and reduced amount of leaf wilt.
Studies show that silica should be used throughout the entire life cycle of the plant, from the seedling or clone stage up until harvest. In order to produce optimal results, silica needs to be continually made available to the plant via the nutrient solution. Once a plant has absorbed the available silica into its cellular structure, it can no longer be redistributed to other parts of the plant. Plants grown in soil are more likely to uptake trace amounts of silica that may be present in the soil, whereas plants grown hydroponically have no direct source of silica unless it is added as a supplement to the nutrient regimen. Plants grown hydroponically without silica will most likely be sub par compared to those grown with it.
Bio Green USA is the manufacturer of environmentally responsible fertilizers. Each Bio Green product is designed specifically for the growing demands of turf, shrubs, trees and agriculture crops. Bio Green fertilizers feed plants systemically, making nutrients immediately available to plants through both roots and foliage when applied. Bio Green feeds aerobic bacteria as well as other living organisms in the soil to help build soil fertility. Aerobic bacteria are involved in a process called the nitrogen cycle. This cycle uses the bacteria to convert nitrogen gas into a form which is useable by plants. The bacteria combined with other living organisms will also convert the organic material left behind from the plants into new topsoil. Our products have been used to help alleviate problems including: Soil pH, Low Organic Matter Content, Compaction, Drought & Heat Stress, High Soil Salinity, Low Nutrient Availability, & Shallow Root Development. Bio Green® is a complete nutrient fertilizer. This means that it contains or makes available through natural processes, the widely known macro nutrients; Nitrogen, Phosphorous and Potassium. Bio Green® also contains the micronutrients which are essential for plant growth. Our complete formulas ensure that plants get all that is needed to thrive during the growing season and soil organisms get all that is needed to build and maintain healthy topsoil. Bio Green USA is the Licensor of the Bio Green® Lawn Service brand business model for license and co-branding opportunities for individually-owned and operated lawn and landscape service companies located in the U.S. Bio Green® Fertilization Redefined.™ Bio Green USA and its subsidiary company Greene County Fertilizer Company operate in their manufacturing plant/corporate headquarters located in Greensboro, GA.
