Hydroponic plants are often susceptible to leaf wilt and bud rot, especially when exposed to heat from HID lamps. Silica helps strengthen plant cells to prevent limp or weak growth. Silica, known chemically as silicon dioxide (SiO2), is the chemical form that silicon (Si) adopts in plant matter. Silica is NOT the same as silicon. Silicon is the stuff computer chips and car polishes are made from.

Combating heat stress: FloraMax Silica is very effective for combating leaf wilt during summer heat. Prevention treatment is best done by applying Silica as a foliar spray 3ml/L (3ml/Qrt). This typically allows plants to endure ambient grow room temperatures upwards of 40 deg C (104 deg F). Foliage remains rigid and turgid so that photosynthesis can continue unaffected.

SHOULD SILICA BE ADDED FIRST OR LAST
Silica 0-0-8 is highly concentrated and should always be pre-diluted least 10-fold with water before adding to the reservoir. Failure to do this may cause white particles to form when it is added to the nutrient solution. This problem is more pronounced at higher EC's especially when using hard or salty waters. Note, these white particles will normally dissolve if the nutrient is immediately stirred and is therefore typically only an aesthetic problem if treated correctly. If you do NOT want to predilute Silica, then it should be added to the reservoir first, before the base nutrient and other additives – like many other brands. The problem with this is it increases the water's pH – subsequent addition of pH sensitive elements will be potentially destabilized unless pH is quickly corrected.
