Silicon naturally fortifies the structure of plants, toughening cell walls and making it harder for threats to enter.
With thicker stems, tougher leaves, and a more robust defence system, plants will be able to support heavier yields - so it’s great to use alongside bloom boosters.
Once it’s absorbed by plants, silicon works its way into and in between cells. It acts as a kind of “cement”, filling in the microscopic gaps for a sturdier cellular structure.
Silicon is naturally abundant in soil, but of course it needs to be supplemented in other substrates such as hydro and coco coir.
This is where SHOGUN Silicon steps in - it’s a highly refined potassium silicate substance that helps to fortify stems, leaves, and branches and increases resistance all around.
Powerful plant armour
Stronger plants are always a benefit, but it’s easy not to realise the true impact that solutions like Silicon can bring.
Stronger plants will support higher yields, meaning they won’t bend or wilt under their weight. Failing to prepare your plants for huge fruits, vegetables, and flowers can damage plant structure and make it hard to grow these same yields in future seasons.
In the same way, they’ll also stay stronger against wind - whether it’s an outdoor breeze or a fan in your grow room.
Pest and disease resistance
Another all-encompassing benefit is the increased resistance to pests and disease. Plants treated with SHOGUN Silicon will have tougher cell walls and be harder for insects and bacteria to penetrate.
You’ll see fewer infestations: not only does Silicon prevent bugs from getting in, but it can direct extra resources to the area if it senses an attack.
Plants are also less susceptible to the mould, mildew, and algae that commonly occurs in hydroponic systems.
