It can be used with equal www.GardenandGreenhouse.net Silicum is an additive that can be used in combination with your preferred base nutrient. It stimulates the uptake of nutrients giving the plant extra energy and resulting in more dry weight. Because the plants receive more energy, Silicum is especially ef- fective in combination with inter- canopy light. Silicum also contains soluble potash, boron, molybde- num, increases plant photosyn- thesis and water-use effi ciency, increases disease resistance and seed quality, activates enzymes and helps control their reaction rates, enhances calcium uptake and stimulates the production of plant fi bers. Silicum encourages resistance against a-biotic stress (temperature, wind) and increases the absorption of nutrients. It is resistant to biotic stress (pests and pathogens), reduces loss of moisture form leaves and helps lower production costs. Use Si- licum from start to fi nish of the plant cycle, using fresh water in 57
