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.
Silver Bullet Roots kills all types of microbe, both friendly and pathogenic. This makes Silver Bullet Roots incompatible with organic/biological gardening as these methods of growing depend on beneficial microbes to break down food for the plant.
