Advanced Nutrients Rhino Skin is a special formulation of silica, developed to be easy to mix with water and to be easily absorbed by plants. Silica strengthens cell walls, stems and leaves. Advanced Nutrients Rhino Skin is part of the Advanced Nutrients “pH perfect” product range too!
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.
