ZEN Strength is a Potassium Silicate based Silica additive.
Silica is used by the plant for proper cellular development. Silica promotes the natural defenses of the plant, helping to reduce stress from multiple variables like heat and nutrient build up. Stronger plants generally means healthier plants, which means better fruits!
YES, and NO. Everyone can benefit from a healthier, stronger plant but this does not make Silica a necessary additive. We recommend adding our Silica supplement ZEN Strength based on this concept. It’s much cheaper than fixing a serious issue later. We call this preventative.
All the way through start to finish. In most cases gardeners will stop using Silica towards the end of the plants reproductive cycle (flowering). If you are using CAL MAG additives mix Silica in first to keep your Calcium from becoming inert an unusable by the plant.
