I don’t think I have to worry about keeping roots moist if they are sitting in water do I?
This was the directions on the bottle…
Prepared from natural plant oils, Nutrilife SM-90 may be used as a wetting agent in both field and hydroponic applications. Encourages new root growth and can be applied as a foliar spray or directly in reservoirs with nutrient solutions. 100% bio-degradable and non-toxic to humans, animals and plants.
• Improves spray coverage in soil and on plants
• Lengthens contact and control of sprays
• Increases the speed of moisture penetration in soils and growing media
• Reduces surface tension of spray nozzles and irrigation systems
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Hydroponics Systems: Apply 2-3 ml to each gallon of nutrient solution on a weekly basis or whenever solutions are replaced.
Foliar Sprays: Dilute 1 part with 5 parts water to prepare a foliar spray. May be repeated every 3 days for up to 3 spray applications.
**When this product is added in small quantities directly to plant nutrient solutions, new root growth emerges. Treated plants develop greater root area, root runs and exhibit generally healthier root
I just didn’t know why a wetting agent would also be used in a hydroponic reservoir unless it was able to fight root rot in some way. Would it be beneficial to roots in some way if they were extra moist?
Hydroguard has been smelling bad lately, roots look fine, reservoir is just smelly.
