    When comparing silicon supplement, there are dozens of brands all selling their ware. All want you to think they have a super silicon, more effective than the next brands. Growth tech liquid silicon is £10 a litre, Advanced nutrients rhino skin is ,£30 a litre, emerald harvest sturdy stalk is £30 for 950ml. Over three times the price.
    They are all the same chemical ingredient. There is no fundamental difference between any of the products apart from the concentration, i.e how diluted the product is.
    Potassium silicate is the main ingredient in these products and when comparing these products, you want the strongest concentration for the least amount of money. They are all high pH, v alkaline when in the bottle. When in your nute solution, the lowering of the pH to acid levels, frees the silicon and potassium from their bond, making the si and potassium available.

    More expensive supplements exist, the mono sicilic acid versions such as mills vitalize, Budda's tree solar green power and facilitator I think it's called. These have a different chemical formulation, are not highly alkaline but can also vary in concentration. They are very expensive though and studies have shown that the difference between these of regular potassium silicate supps is negligible at best.

    Take my advice and don't bother with ANY of the usual brands on this supplement. They are all over priced and under strength. eBay POTSIL. It is a 35% potassium silicate supplement. Use 1ml per 5 litres, not 1ml L, or 3ml L like many of the other supps (rhino skin). Its the exact same product and works in organics, soils or hydro.

    When you do things right, people wont be sure you've done anything at all.

    Oh yeah, potsil cost £6 off eBay for a 150 ml pouch. 1 ml per 5 litres gives a silicon content of around 50ppm, 48 iirc, which is ideal for cannabis plants

    Hey bigdaddy, I've just noticed you said youre growing in b and q compost. That's the first recommendation I'd make right there. Try and get some better stuff if you can, biobizz, plagron, plant magic etc. The plants will thank you. The cheaper composts just aren't up to scratch for plants as special as ours. The rest of the products you shown us though are all quality. I've used both the dutch pro products before and I liked them.

    I used the Dutch pro back when I was running hydro, but I loved the take root enough to post on here about it, saying how good it was. My roots were a thick white mat, so I vouch for that. The explode was a good supplement, certainly no issues with it and I must have got good results at the time. I think I only stopped using Dutch pro because it wasn't regularly stocked at my local shop. Think I changed to advanced after the Dutch pro
