That element is silica, which is the second most abundant element in the earth’s crust (oxygen is the most prevalent), but guess what? Silica is missing from hydroponics root zones and fertilizers.
This is a cause of concern because your plants desperately need silica. They evolved to intake it so it becomes part of their cell walls.
That’s important because cells are the building blocks of your plants and cell walls are the structural features that determine the strength of your plants’ stems, leaves, flowers, floral structures and metabolism.
Not only do your plants accumulate silicon to build their cells, they also store it as foundational support between cells.
In fact, your plants contain as much as 10% of their weight as silica.
There’s a catch, however-silica isn’t supplied at all in most hydroponics fertilizers or root zone media, and even if it is, it usually isn’t the right type or amount of silica to maximize silica’s benefits.
If you’ve tried other silica products, you discover that most hydroponics manufacturers have found it difficult if not impossible to effectively deliver silica to your crops.
You can see why that is. Silica is the main element in sand. It is very thick and solid. It doesn’t easily dissolve in water. It isn’t easily taken into plants.
The scientists who created Advanced Nutrients Rhino Skin knew all this before they started the product design and testing process.
That’s why they experimented with many different types of silica, as well as different concentrations and manufacturing methods. They found that the form of potassium silicate used in Rhino Skin produced the highest crop silicate percentages.
Potassium silicate benefits leaves, stems and internal plant cells best when the silica is drawn in through roots to become part of your plants’ structure. Foliar feeding is not necessary or recommended.
No, Rhino Skin has a neutral pH of 5.7 and was made this way so it can work with our pH Perfect System. It does not affect the pH in any way, so that your reservoir will keep the pH level in the optimum range of 5.6 – 6.1 pH. To ensure that Rhino Skin is properly dissolved and distributed in your nutrient water, add it to your reservoir at least two hours before feeding, allowing it to solubilize. Agitate your water before you administer it to plants.
Rhino Skin is the most effective, concentrated silica product on the market. Grand Master growers are dedicated to spending the time necessary to maximize crop size and yields. They have the time and expertise to properly handle the power of Rhino Skin. As you use the Bigger Yields System and progress up the ladder of success while educating yourself with our gardening information materials, you will one day be a Grand Master so you too can get the benefits of Rhino Skin.
“I am a macrophotographer who photographs my crops. I can send you the pictures to prove that your product increases the size and transparency of my glands. I got it so I could make the plants stronger but I see now it has even more for me than just that. I changed lenses because I didn’t need so much magnification. That’s how much bigger the resin glands got.”
