Silicate is one important element most soils lack. Using Potassium Silicate for your garden protects plants from high salinity, pests, molds, and transpiration in higher temperatures. SI enhances the plant immunity mechanism by entering the plant cell walls. SI is essential to the leaf and stem strength and allowing the plant to hold up heavier fruits. High silicate content in plant tissue enables the leaves to be held erect which allows more light to penetrate to the lower level of the canopy. SI can also benefit and improve resistance to wilt in small plants or clones and seedlings.
