The Power of Silicon: Improve Your Plant’s Resilience to Stress with Silic Boost.

In the field of plant nutrition, one element often underestimated but possessing incredible potential is silicon. Despite being the most abundant element in soil, plants can only utilise it when it is present in a certain form. It’s been proved that providing an extra dose of silicon to crops leads to remarkable improvements, rendering them stronger and better equipped to endure the challenging effects that can cause plant stress.


By adding Silic Boost, which contains a high concentration of silicon, you can expect all the good things that come from silicon. Keep reading to find out more about this incredible element and Silic Boost!

Understanding the Benefits of Silicon for Plants
Silicon isn’t a vital element, but when it’s available to plants, its beneficial effects are remarkable. You may ask, if it is not necessary for life, how does the plant use it?


Silicon binds to the “bricks” that form the cell walls supporting the development of robust cell walls. This “fortification” will happen in all the plant’s structures: stems, leaves, flowers and fruits.

Thanks to this structural reinforcement, silicon renders plants less susceptible to adverse weather conditions such as windy climates, frost or drought. It can help to reduce the chances of suffering from biotics stresses.

 

More than that, silicon has also proven its efficacy in nutrient uptake of crucial elements like phosphorus.


As you can see, for not being a vital nutrient, plants make very good use of it and it is a great help to improve the overall condition and resistance of the plant.

How Silic Boost Works Its Magic

Composed of a stable and plant-available form of silicon that is soluble in water, Silic Boost binds to cell walls, reinforcing them and creating stronger plant structures. Additionally, by reinforcing the plant’s cuticle, it helps to reduce water loss through evaporation and improves heat and drought resistance. It also aids in better nutrient assimilation.


Let’s showcase the benefits from start adding Silic Boost to you nutrient solution:

● Sturdy Stems and Branches: You will see the transformation as your plants develop stronger and more robust structures.


● Improved Nutrient Absorption: Better absorption and distribution of nutrients, which favours greater efficiency of the nutrients supplied to the plant.


● Improve Plant’s Resistance: Shield your plants from harsh weather conditions, such as frost and drought.


● Very Versatile: Silic Boost adapts to a variety of growing methods and nutrients, making it really easy to fit into your current feeding programme.

When to Introduce Silic Boost and How to use it

Silic Boost, being a highly concentrated liquid, requires only a small amount per use. Begin using Silic Boost from the start of your crop’s life for stronger and more resistant seedlings. Add just 0.1 ml per liter of irrigation water during the growth stage until the bloom phase. Its compatibility with various nutrients and crops makes it an ideal supplement for the entire growth phase.


Shake it well before use to ensure maximum efficacy. Also, it’s important to use, exclusively, clean or new pipettes when dosing it. The Silic Boost formula is very complex and can be altered by direct contact with other nutrients that are not diluted in the nutrient solution. By being careful with this, you will avoid spoilage or loss of quality.


Compatibility with Different Substrates

Whether your plants are growing in soil, coco, or hydroponics, Silic Boost is a perfect complement. The substrates often lack silicon, making Silic Boost a valuable addition to any cultivation environment. This product seamlessly integrates into different growing media and is compatible with all types of drip irrigation systems, like Wilma Grow Systems. Silic Boost is water-soluble and won’t clog drip lines.

 

Silic Boost finds its application in various plants, particularly those producing flowers and fruits such as cucumbers, tomatoes, strawberries, or sunflower sprouts. This is because the fruits and flowers will also benefit from the reinforcement provided by Silic Boost, gaining in hardness and weight. Moreover, the stronger the branches are, the better they can bear the weight of a large crop without breaking!

A thick, fortified stem will better withstand the weight of the crop without breaking.

Silic Boost’s Perfect Partners: A Winning Combination

Silic Boost harmonises with different nutrients, making it a suitable product for all types of growers. You can use it with all Atami products and substrates, ensuring a seamless integration into your cultivation routine. Silic Boost is part of the Atami B’cuzz range of products, aimed at the more experienced grower who wants great yields. If you already use this range or one with a similar concept, Silic Boost is the ideal complement to get even better results.


In conclusion, the value of silicon in plant cultivation is undeniable. Incorporate Silic Boost into your plant’s diet for enhanced resilience, stronger structures, and healthier plants. Witness the transformative power of Silic Boost and increase your yields! Happy growing!
