The virtues of supplementing your plants with silica is generally well understood by the growing community. At Buddhas Tree we consider it to be an essential part of any nutrient regime. So what is the new understanding and new innovation? Why Solar Green Power over another silicon product? The answer to all three ultimately lies in the form of silicon that enters the plant. Silicic acid is the simplest most soluble basic form of silica. In nature plants uptake silicon in this purest form of silicic acid from the soil where it naturally occurs. It is also the only form of Silica that is directly available to all of the plant and its biological systems.
For some time there has been a number of Silica/Silicone based nutrient additives available on the market containing different types of soluble silica. Some for example are potassium silicate and others of a similar nature. Whilst these provide some benefit, by their nature it is understood that these forms of silica and their usability and absorption by the plant are limited. Only a small proportion is available to the plant and it isn’t as easily translocated around. This impacts on their effectiveness.
So why not supplement your plants with pure Silicic acid right? Until now , the reason it hasn’t existed comes down to a quandary of bio-chemistry. Silicic acid by nature is very changeable and readily converts again into other forms of silica. This is not the case with Buddhas Tree Solar Green Power. The innovation and skill of our bio-chemist have come together once again to solve this problem and we are proud to offer our pure silicic acid nutrient supplement that is stable, safe and of the highest quality. Buddhas Tree Solar Green Power is the only silicon nutrient supplement that the plant can truly make maximum use of.We have a deeper understanding of silicon now, more than ever before, and we are benefitting from these new understandings. Buddhas Tree want to bring the benefits of that to our growers with our new product Solar Green Power and help you unlock the full potential of silicon and benefit from its inclusion into your feeding regime.
