How Rhino Skin Works
Advanced Nutrients Rhino Skin is a very effective plant improver which can be used right the way through your grow from cutting to harvest. Rhino Skin provides your plants with the most soluble form of silica available. This makes Rhino Skin a much easier product to use and much easier for plants to absorb than other silica products on the market. Silica is a naturally occurring substance found in soils. It is used by plants to strengthen cell-walls which then increases plants resistance to fungi and insects. Rhino Skin helps to build noticeably stronger and thicker stems and roots and helps with uptake of nutrients and absorption of CO2. Rhino Skin helps to reduce the water loss through leaves (transpiration) which can help guard against wilting. Please note that although most silica products are highly alkaline, Rhino Skin is not. Many growers use potassium silicate as a pH increaser. However, as Rhino Skin is pH buffered, it is not suitable for this purpose.
Rhino Skin is part of the Advanced Nutrients “pH perfect” range of products. As long as you only use products in the Advanced Nutrients “pH perfect” range in your nutrient solution then there is no need to check and adjust pH.
How to Use Rhino Skin
Advanced Nutrients Rhino Skin should be used from the beginning of flowering through to 1 week before harvest. Simply make up your feed/nutrient solution as usual to the required strength and add Rhino Skin at a rate of 2ml/Litre and mix well.
As with all nutrients, boosters and additives, never mix them together in their concentrated form (i.e. straight from the bottle). Always add each nutrient, booster or additive to your reservoir water or feed water in turn, giving the solution a good stir to mix it in before adding the next one.
Aggressives are types of substance which can cause damage to skin and clothing and can cause burns. This group of products includes, but is not limited to: pH Up (potassium hydroxide), pH Down (nitric acid, phosphoric acid, citric acid), Liquid oxygen (hydrogen peroxide) and products containing liquid forms of silica/silicon. Always add straight to your reservoir water and mix well straight away. Do not mix aggressive substances with water or any other product while in their concentrated form. When using, always wear suitable protection (gloves, goggles etc.) and keep out of the reach of children at all times.
Please note: although Rhino Skin is part of the Advanced Nutrients “pH perfect” range, if any products have been added to the reservoir that are not in the “pH perfect” range then you will need to check and adjust the pH of your nutrient solution regularly.
