- Helps form calcium pectate
- Fully chelated iron
- Important source of magnesium
- Noticeable size increase
- Improved enzyme function
- Coco coir approved
- Powerful formulation
- Cost effective
Green Planet Pro-Cal is a highly beneficial calcium, magnesium, and iron supplement, this is just the product you need to correct deficiencies and imbalances in certain hydroponic mediums such as coco! In addition to this, it will thicken the cell walls of your plant and improve the enzyme function. It also contains iron which is fully chelated to ensure easy uptake. Green Planet Pro-Cal is suitable for use with any growing medium, soil or hydroponic.
Please note: In hydroponic systems the iron may fall out of the solution relatively quickly due to the use of magnetic pumps without grounding probes and high levels of dissolved oxygen from air stones.
Growth Stage: 1-1.5ml/l
Flowering Stage: 1.5-2ml/l
The importance of calcium and magnesium
Calcium and magnesium are two of the three secondary nutrients required by plants, the third being sulfur. They are secondary in as far as quantities required for growth, not importance of function. Simply put, calcium and magnesium are necessary for plant growth and development and are easy to fix in the case of a deficiency. While nitrogen stands as requiring the highest levels in a nutrient feed, secondary nutrients calcium and magnesium only require about eight to 10 per cent of that amount. While their required levels are much lower, their importance can’t be understated.
Calcium is important for strengthening a plant’s cell walls and maintaining its structure. The importance of calcium becomes evident when you see degradation of the leaves, which eventually shows up as discoloration and canker-like sores. When calcium is absent, the integrity of the cell wall falls apart. Calcium is not mobile inside the plant, so the plant cannot borrow from nearby areas to make up for local deficiencies. Instead, calcium depends on transpiration to reach its destination.
Once absorbed by the root system, calcium is then pulled through the plant and deposited where needed as excess water, which played a role in the transpiration process, escapes the plant through tiny pores called stomata. As the process depends on the flow of water through the plant, any factor that affects hydration levels, such as humidity and temperature, can have a significant impact on calcium levels, even if your feed blend is properly mixed.
Calcium deficiencies also result in stunted root growth. Many times, even if the soil is rich in calcium, it may not be in a form readily available for absorption by the plant. This is where supplementation comes in. By supplementing calcium in a form that is geared toward maximum uptake, you increase the amount of bio-available calcium in the soil, which results in a much-needed boost for your plants. A plant with increased calcium levels will result in a higher than usual pH in the soil. However, finding a higher than usual pH level is not necessarily an indicator of well-balanced calcium levels.
Magnesium deficiencies are easily identified by a yellowing of the leaves with distinct green veins. As magnesium can float freely throughout the plant, the veins remain green as newer leaves are actively sucking up what magnesium is available. This results primarily in deficiencies in older leaves.
Magnesium is the key element in chlorophyll, which gives plants their vibrant green color. This secondary plant nutrient also plays numerous roles in the photosynthesis process, including the activation of enzymes, and the creation and transportation of sugars throughout the plant. The most common cause of magnesium deficiencies is simply a lack of adequate application.
