Liquid Science Plant Wax
Plant Wax is a water-soluble emulsifiable polymer concentrate that can be sprayed on leaves to form a semi-permeable biodegradable layer. Plant Wax can be applied to most plants, including flowers, trees and some vegetable crops. Plant Wax reduces the transpiration rate of most plants that are exposed to extreme temperatures. Plant Wax is also ideal for reducing stress throughout the transplant stage. When sprayed on the leaf surface, Plant Wax slows down the transpiration rate by as much as 50%, enabling the plant to put more energy into root zone development.
Traditionally, horticulturists trim the leaves of cuttings to reduce transpiration and hence losses from dehydration before the clone has time to generate roots and begin to absorb water.
But covering cuttings to keep the humidity high brings its own problems with mold and fungus infection.
But with PLANT WAX, there is another way!
- Reduces plant transpiration by up to 50%
- Helps prevent mold and fungal outbreaks
- Guards against excessive heat stress
- Assists in reducing transplant shock
