Plant Vitality has hit upon a revolution in horticulture, and that is Nano Particle Technology. By smashing particles together at an elemental level, they are broken down to a tiny size. What this means is that each bottle contains a solution of equal size molecules. Not only does this ensure that each bottle is the same as the last, it means that nutrient absorption is at an absolute maximum. The tiny, tiny size of the particles means that more can be in contact with roots than other nutrient brands. It’s also available in a state that the plant can take up quickly, without having to break it down itself.
Plant Vitality B.P.M is mixed with water and used as a foliar spray to help prevent and cure Botrytis and Powdery Mildew. If the humidity gets too high in your grow room the risk of these debilitating diseases taking hold increases, which can destroy large amounts of your fruits.
B.P.M is a blend of organic, essential oils and plant extracts (Terpenes) that generations of gardeners have used for their anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. Before use, shake really well!!
Plant Vitality B.P.M is suitable for use in any hydroponic system including NFT, DWC or flood and drain. Of course, if you are hand watering it is fine too! Also, it’s fine for using in any substrate from soil and coco to hydroponic media such as rockwool and pebbles. For best results, we always suggest following the manufacturers grow schedule. This way you know your plants will be getting everything it needs at the right time.
Dose: Preventative – Use once a week at 10ml per litre
Curative – Use every 3 days at 15ml per litre
Conversions: 1 Teaspoon = 5mL | 1 Tablespoon = 15 mL | 1 Ounce = 30mL | 1 Cup = 240 mL
BOTRYTIS (BUD ROT):
Botrytis tends to set it at the base of the stem, making it often hard to detect. Usually, the first signs seen by the grower are when the small leaves of the kolas begin to wither, discolour, and dry out. Upon closer inspection, you may notice fluff growing amongst buds and bud sites, usually grey, blue-green, or white in colour. Depending on conditions, this will either cause the bud to dry out completely and crumble when touched (in low humidity), or turn into a decomposing sludge (in high humidity).
When Botrytis reaches advanced stages, you may notice little black specks appear in the mould. These are spores the mould is creating, ready to spread itself to other plants. They can be transported on the slightest breeze. Things are truly dire if you see this. Do not breath these spores in, or allow them anywhere near other plants.
Botrytis can also attack stems, leaves and entire young plants, but this is less common. Just make sure to check your plants regularly!
Powdery Mildew appears as a thin layer of white powdery mould on the leaves of your cannabis plant, before spreading across the entire plant. This inhibits photosynthesis, slowly causing your cannabis to die from lack of energy. Leaves will shrivel, turn yellow, before turning brown and dying. Although hard to spot, Powdery Mildew can sometimes be detected early as small bumps appearing on infected leaves. Like Botrytis, Powdery Mildew produces little black spores in its advanced stages, which can be carried by air movement to other plants.
Both of these diseases can occur indoors and outdoors, as well as infect multiple species of plants besides cannabis, making any plant infection within your grow area or household potentially dangerous to your crop.
Fortunately, both diseases need a very precise set of circumstances to be met before they will infect a plant.
Without a doubt, prevention is the best way to keep your cannabis safe. It is much easier to take some extra precautions and monitor the state of your growing environment than to try and actually cure an infection.

There are three conditions that need to be met for both Botrytis and Powdery Mildew to take hold. These are:
So the best way to prevent both diseases is to ensure that no one condition ever persists for long, and certainly not all together.
These are all quite easy to prevent indoors. A cool temperature is anything under 20 degrees Celsius. Ensure you have a decent ventilation system set up to ensure constant air movement, and try to prevent overcrowding of plants that may inhibit air flow. You should also be able to control the humidity of a grow room using ventilation, keeping things in order.
Outdoors is a little trickier. A lack of breeze, cool nights and rain can all stack the odds against you and help mould set in. As such, it is important to choose your grow site with care, ensuring there is good airflow. Some growers will erect tent-like structure over their bud if they know heavy rain is on the way, and even shake them after a rain spell to shake out any excess water that may be sitting on leaves and buds.
Trust us, when it comes to these diseases prevention is everything.

About Plant Vitality
Plant Vitality is a UK-based company run by some very clever people. Using Nano-technology they have come up with many impressive products.
What is a nanoparticle?
Nanoparticles are minimal in size, length and width. Crucially their perfectly uniformed structure allows each and every bottle and every user to experience the same growth potential with every crop. Nanoparticles are more readily available to plants than any other particle and are of huge scientific interest. Properties of materials change as their size approaches the Nano-scale and as the percentage of atoms at the surface of a material becomes significant.
The high surface area to volume ratio of nanoparticles provides a tremendous driving force for diffusion which is essential for uniform plant growth.
By smashing nutrients together, superior nanoparticles are produced.
Smaller particles mean a larger surface area, which in turn means a quicker dissolving time in the water and a faster absorption rate into your plant’s root system. This smart application of physics and the latest scientific breakthrough enables Nano to get to work quicker on your plants. But the benefits of size go beyond speed; Nanoparticles are efficient too.
Nanoparticles are easier for a plant to absorb and that means they expend less energy in doing so. This conservation of energy means enhanced growth and development for your crop. The less a plant has to work in taking up nutrients the more it can work on what you want your plants to be doing; promoting healthy, vigorous growth.
