Increase Plant Yield with Organic Foliar Fertilizer | 13 Essentials



While silicon (Si) is not considered an essential element for plant growth, researchers have studied the impact of Si particularly on Si-accumulating plants. Various published research concludes that Si is an effective antidote to pests and diseases caused by fungi and bacteria. Si has also been found to positively impact plants under various abiotic stresses including salt stress, metal toxicity, drought stress, radiation damage, nutrient imbalance, high temperature, freezing etc. These beneficial effects are attributed to accumulation of Si on the tissue surface. Si typically accumulates on the epidermis of various tissues mainly as a polymer of hydrated amorphous Silica. All terrestrial plants contain Si in their tissues although the content of Si varies considerably with the spec

The Impact of LEDs and Plant Growth - What is Fact and What is Fiction?

Fact: When the light-emitting diode (LED) bulb was invented, in the early 1960’s, this new light source was expected to be a more efficient way to light a room. What was not anticipated was the huge impact this light source would have on plant growth. And, while most people believe, LED bulbs are, in fact, lifesavers to plants, other people still believe LEDs are expensive and unnecessary.

No-till Soil and Its Effects on Cannabis

Whether you live in California, Colorado, Washington or Oregon, the idea of not having to “till” or “turn over” the soil—as it is often referred to, sounds refreshing. No longer do growers have to suffer the physical and time-related demands soil preparation usually requires. A no-till garden consists of leaving the soil in its place and not replacing it at the end of the season, allowing the soil’s nutrients and moisture to create a self-sustaining environment. The easy effort behind this type of garden is the reason for its increasing popularity. However, what effects does this type of garden have on cannabis plants? From what we can see, the effects are quite positive: Richer soil from the start – because the soil is not tossed out and replaced each harvest season, t
