SHOGUN FERTILISERS SILICON

Like the protective armour of a Samurai Warrior, Shogun Silicon protects and fortifies your plants against attack from both disease and pests whilst also strengthening the very structure of the plant. Extremely concentrated and designed for maximum plant uptake, Shogun Silicon creates significantly enhanced cell wall strength that provides the basis for strong healthy development and maximum environmental resistance.

Silicon makes your plants stronger so that they can bear more and heavier fruit. It also enhances cell wall strength so that you have better plant strength to prevent attacks from diseases and pests. Silicon has also produced great results as a preventer against botrytis or bud rot as we know it and is also a natural pH up as well. As with all products in the Shogun range, Shogun Silicon is highly concentrated and is better value than any competitor as it is lower in price and has lower dilution rate as well which is a double win.

KEY VALUES:

  • Contains concentrated and highly refined potassium silicate
  • If mixed as per instructions can form stable Silicilic acid in your nutrient solution for numerous plant benefits
  • Increases plants ability to deal with heat and stress
  • Increases plant resistance to disease and pest invasion
  • Unbeatable industry dilution rate for a silicon product

FEED COMPOSITION:

Silicon is often overlooked in many nutrient regimes, but the wide range of benefits that it can facilitate make it a must-have in our opinion. Silicon is not exactly a nutrient as your plants do not consume it as a source of nutrition – it does however enter the plant’s structure via your nutrient solution and provides numerous structural benefits to the plant.

STRONG PLANTS

Including Silicon in your nutrient regime means that your plant can incorporate this element into the cell walls of your plant. Multiply this effect into every cell in your plant and it becomes quite easy to see how adding it can increase durability, strength and physical resistance to disease and pests. It won’t “definitely” protect your plants from any potential problems, but it does increase resistance to things like heat stress and pest invasion as well as decreasing the likelihood of rot or mildew issues actually getting into your plant and causing problems.

SILICIC ACID

Silicic acid is a weak acid that forms when Shogun Silicon is dissolved in water. It exists as this in solutions with a pH less than 7. Above 7, it dissociates into the silicate anion that can react with Calcium and Magnesium to cause nutrient solution clouding (see below on how important correct mixing is!). Stable silicic acid in your nutrient solution can have a number of positive effects…

CORRECT MIXING IS ESSENTIAL!

If you want to see all of the benefits that SHOGUN Silicon can offer then it’s essential that you mix your solution correctly (as outlined in the above mixing instructions). If you don’t follow this order – for example, if you add your nutrients to the tank first and then add concentrated SHOGUN Silicon without adjusting your pH then you will see a plume of cloudy liquid appear as you add the Silicon. This will rapidly dissipate, but you’ve immediately lost some of the benefits of Silicic Acid (above) and have caused some of the Calcium and Magnesium in your solution to precipitate and “drop out” of solution. This is not a great idea and is very easily avoidable by adding your Silicon FIRST to plain water and then adjusting your pH to below 7 before adding your nutrients. The key point to recognize is that the pH cannot be above 7 when the Silicon and nutrients make contact. Follow this golden rule and your SHOGUN Silicon benefits will remain maximised.

DIRECTIONS OF USE:

  • Root Feed – Add plain water to your nutrient reservoir or watering can. Then add Silicon at a rate of 1mL/L to your nutrient reservoir or watering can. Before adding the nutrient, reduce the pH to just below 7 and then add your additives and nutrients. Repeat method for tank change/refill. Use throughout the life of the crop.
