Grotek Pro Silicate – PLANT RESISTANCE –
Pro Silicate With a high concentration of soluble potash and silica, Pro-Silicate™ was developed for use in soilless media and hydroponic systems where these elements may be lacking. While not considered an essential nutrient, plants accumulate silica in macro proportions for good reason. Silica is known to strengthen cell walls and overall cell integrity, which makes plants more resistant to abiotic stress such as heat and drought.
- Improves conditions for drought tolerance
- Supports higher yields
- Provides nutrients to strengthen plants

While not considered an essential element for most crops, silica helps virtually all plant species on the planet by supporting strong cell wall development. Rigid cell walls are crucial for tolerance of abiotic stress such as heat and drought, which prevents wilting and ensures strong plant performance. With two sources of potassium (potassium silicate and potassium chloride), adds the nutrients necessary for improved flowering and fruiting.
Use Pro-Silicate during vegetative and reproductive growth. Watch pH as Pro-Silicate is a strong base.
EXTENDED APPLICATION RATEPro-Silicate is a strong base and should never be added to nutrient concentrates. We recommend that it be added to the nutrient tank prior to the addition of nutrients. Soil/Soilless/Water Culture: Mix ½− 1 tsp per 1 gal of water (2½−5 ml / 4 L). Check pH and adjust to 5.5−6.5. Agitate well, then add nutrients. Pre-dilute in a small quantity of water and add slowly while agitating. NOTICE: This method can lead to the formation of precipitates if the pH fluctuations are too high.
Pro-Silicate is a nutritional additive containing potassium and silicon. It helps keep the plants upright, positioning the leaves correctly for maximum light exposure that ultimately leads to more food production because of a high rate of photosynthesis. Pro-Silicate helps the plant battle wilting and drought by acting as insulation against excess water loss at higher temperatures. This helps increase plant growth and prolongs bloom life.
