Botanicare Clearex, 5 Gallon
Use Botanicare Clearex to correct the most common cause of crop failure - the buildup of nutrient salt deposits in soils or soilless grow media. A common cause of crop failure can be traced to the build up of nutrient salt deposits in soils or soilless grow media. High salt concentrations in the soil solution cause a shrinkage of plant cell protoplasm away from the cell wall as a result of osmosis. This condition, known as plasmolysis, can eventually lead to irreversible wilting.
Botanicare Clearex is a scientifically formulated isotonic drench solution, which effectively binds with the excess nutrient salt and safely leaches it from the soil. Leaching with tap or deionized water can lead to hypotonic conditions which cause cell lysis with outflow of essential electrolytes and nutrients. This causes tissue damage leading to serious pathogen disorders such as bacterial and fungal infections. Clearex is isotonic, therefore, it creates a safe osmotic environment which allows plant cells to maintain an optimal turgor pressure during treatment.
Clearex can also be used at the end of a crop’s growth cycle to trigger the last reproductive stage of the plant, forcing it to process and assimilate endogenous nutrients. Clearex contains specific electrolytes and selected mono and disaccharides which provide energy for the biosynthesis of important plant metabolites and macromolecules. Pre harvest treatments with Clearex are known to enhance the flavor and increase yields in fruits, vegetables, and culinary herbs by flushing out extraneous chemical nutrients.
Those last couple of weeks are usually the most important, and if you can fertilize during this period, it only makes sense that you will achieve better results and bigger harvests. Clearex enables you to fertilize right up to the last few days before harvest by immediately and completely flushing the nutrient salts out of whatever growing medium you are using. It works for both soil and hydroponics. You can also use this product to periodically flush the growing medium to prevent nutrient salt build-up and lockout.
Usage Application:Mix 2 tsp (5ml) of Clearex per gallon of water. Use Clearex with pure water only. Mix well and adjust pH.
Between Nutrient Changes:Drain all existing nutrient solution. Add only Clearex and fresh water and allow to re-circulate in your system for approximately two hours. Drain completely and refill reservoir with fresh nutrient solution.
Pre-harvest:Drain all existing nutrient solution. Refill reservoir with Clearex and fresh water only. Begin running this solution during the last 3 – 7 days before harvest during the ripening phase.
For Container Gardens:
Between Nutrient Changes:Drench thoroughly with Clearex solution until there is 20 – 40% runoff from the bottom of the pot. Resume regular feeding with your next scheduled watering.
Pre-harvest:Drench daily until 10 – 20% runoff is achieved from the container. Begin running this solution during the last 3 – 7 days before harvest during the ripening phase.
