Wilt Guard is a nutrient additive used to maintain your reservoir or growing medium and help protect your plants from stress or disease. It is particularly effective at dealing with pythium and will both treat and prevent it. It is a worthy addition to any nutrient schedule to safeguard your crop.

How It Works

Hydroponic environments provide the perfect conditions for plants to grow and thrive, however the very nature of hydroponics also provide the ideal environment for disease to attack crops. Disease that attacks the root zone such as pythium can often go unnoticed for a long time and then once it is discovered it can be too late. When a plant becomes stressed in these type of situations the guard cells on the outside of the stomata closeup to the prevent the loss of water, this is known as potassium based osmotic pressure. The high levels of potassium in Wilt Guard are readily absorbed by the plant and this helps it to regulate this process and water loss, ensuring the best possible conditions for this natural process to take effect and helping plants overcome disease. 

How To Use CX Horticulture Wilt Guard

Wilt Guard is most effective when used as a preventative measure. CX Horticulture suggest a dose of 1ml per litre throughout the entire growth cycle. Whilst it is often thought as only necessary for hydroponic systems, Wilt Guard is still highly recommended for soil and coco growers too and will work in both hand-watering or automated feeding situations.

Wilt Guard works best when combined with CX Horticulture Regen-a-Root. By pairing the two together ensures the very best protection at all times as well as a highly effective root zone formula for strong, fast growth. This is also the best method for when you are already fighting against pythium. 

CX Horticulture Wilt Guard is available in 1L and 5L bottles.
