Buddhas Tree Defender is an innovative and amazing new product that we have created especially for Hydroponic Growers to solve the difficult plant and root disease problems that can sometimes be the bain of growing without soil or substrate. It is a dream come true for growers using Deep Water Culture, Nutrient Film Technique and Flood and Drain, but will also be of benefit in any hydroponics setup.
Buddhas Tree Defender works like an inoculation for your plants. Made up of cleverly adapted Phosphorus molecules, once plants are treated, these molecules are absorbed into the root tissues where they remain. This ever so slightly alters the biochemistry of your root zone. This slight change means huge effects on almost all waterborne root and plant pathogens and fungi rendering them unable to reproduce in your roots. It is extremely effective at eliminating infection from all Oomycetes, Phytophora and Pythium that cause the most common cases of slimy root rot. Defender also has a hugely positive impact on root growth by stimulating the Phosphorus pathways in your root zone.
Defender has been designed to be used in the second to last week of your vegetive cycle and should be run constantly in your hydroponic system for 5 days after which time your plants have been fully inoculated and nutrients can be discarded and filled afresh. Buddhas Tree Defender is to be used before any problems occur and as such needs to treated as prevention. It will have some positive effect on existing infections but is not a cure. However, when it is used as a prevention it completely eliminates the possibility for a pathogen to get a foothold. Test subjects were purposefully infected with a full spectrum of pathogens and in all cases were shown to be able to resist the attack.
Buddhas Tree Defender is truly the answer to every Hydro growers nightmare. Don’t wait for it to happen! Give your plants the Defender. Prevention is always better than a cure!
Treat your plants with Defender during the second to last week of the vegetative growth stage. Add Defender at a rate of 0.5ml of Defender for every litre of nutrient solution, checking pH and EC levels as usual. Make sure that you perform a complete reservoir change after no more than 5 days. At the very least, make sure that you leave at least 4 days between finishing the treatment and switching to a 12/12 flowering cycle.

Buddhas Tree Defender has been formulated to combat root diseases, like pythium. Root diseases are a particular concern for growers in hydroponic systems (such as DWC, NFT, F&D), but they can affect plants grown in any medium if conditions are less than ideal. The problem is heightened during the summertime when it is more difficult to maintain nutrient temperatures below the 21 degrees centigrade threshold. At these temps, oxygen levels drop and pathogenic bacteria and fungus start to take hold. When this happens, it doesn’t take long before the negative consequences start to unfold. Roots that were once white and fluffy quickly turn into a sludge-like brown mess, while growth in the tops stops completely, as plants re-allocate resources to protect themselves. Without treatment they eventually die off altogether.
Luckily, the team of bio chemistry experts at Buddhas Tree have come up with a solution. Defender works by triggering a biochemical change that effectively inoculates your plants from attacks by pathogens. A single treatment is all it takes for your plants to form an active guard against root disease that will last right the way through till harvest time. Buddhas Tree recommend that the treatment is performed in the second to last week of the vegetative growth stage. You should leave at least 4 days before switching to a 12/12 (12 hours on, 12 hours off) lighting pattern and commencing the flowering cycle.

About Buddhas Tree
Buddha’s Tree is a family owned business and consists of a close, small group of friends and relatives with over 30 years of growing experience and knowledge. We are also very lucky to have the innovative talent of our Biochemist. He is rated as one of the top 4 biochemists in the world and in his particular field of agriculture he is number 1 in the world. He is responsible for some of the worlds record-breaking food crop yields. It’s hard to overstate how pivotal he and his skills have been in helping us develop our products with the qualities and standards we insist upon. We draw on our combined experience and strive to develop products that set the highest standards and that consistently produce the results we would want to achieve ourselves.
Our aim is to be a breath of fresh air to the growing and hydroponic industry and bring to the market new and innovative products and nutrients that achieve new heights, by focusing on principles of outstanding performance and equally important, safety. The latter of which we particularly feel is an area that has been neglected in our industry and one that we focus on obsessively.
