Silver Bullet Roots
Silver Bullet Roots helps suppress and prevent Pythium but is also a highly effective against bactericide, virucide, sporicide, fungicide, algaecide and amoebacide. It delivers unparalleled stability in tanks for up to 5 weeks and contributes to healthy white roots. It is non-toxic and non-corrosive, chlorine free, pH-neutral, easy to use. It is also odour, colour and taste free. It does not enter the plant at all!
Although highly stable, over time, there is a slight natural decomposition of the silver stabilised hydrogen peroxide, coupled with the sterilisation reaction leads to the release of dissolved oxygen into the nutrient solution. This increase in dissolved oxygen produces an increase in nutrient uptake, stimulating growth rates further.
When To Use
Silver Bullet Roots is a very versatile product that has various dose rates depending upon how you are using it.
For active hydroponic system maintenance it can be used at an ongoing does rate of 0.5 - 0.8mL per Litre but it can also be used at higher rates to help shock treat existing issues or for system flushing between crops.
How It Works
1. A typical bacterium naturally emits a negative charge. Silver Bullet is attracted by this charge to the problem.
2. The presence of Silver Bullet inhibits the defence mechanism, allowing the powerful free radicals to attack the bacterium’s cell membrane.
3. Free radicals penetrate the membrane and destroy the bacterium. Once killed, it no longer emits a negative charge. Excess Oxygen is released.
4. Silver Bullet is now attracted to the next problem site that is emitting a negative charge. The process repeats.
