Vitalink Foliar is an effective foliar feed comprised of a unique blend of humic substances and amino acid chelated calcium. Calcium is required in large amounts by plants to ensure the development of strong cell walls. Stronger cell walls will boost resistance to pests and disease and helps your plants retain that all-important moisture.
Including calcium in a ‘chelated’ form ensures plants can easily and efficiently absorb it. This is especially important in indoor / greenhouse growing environments where common issues such as too much heat and too little humidity negatively affect a plant’s ability to absorb calcium.
Calcium absorption can also prove to be problematic during the flowering/fruiting stages of development, as the extra potassium plants need during this phase can interfere with their ability to absorb calcium at the root zone.
Using a foliar spray allows calcium to be absorbed directly by the leaves ensuring your plants are getting enough of this vital element. It’s also worth noting that growers using coco/coir should always utilise a calcium-rich foliar spray, as calcium deficiencies can be common in this particular growing medium.
As well as calcium, VitaLink Foliar also contains the natural anti-fungal and anti-bacterial ingredient tea tree oil. Tea tree oil has long been used by gardeners to fight off a number of fungal infections including regular plant problems like powdery mildew (mould).
Key features of VitaLink Foliar include:
VitaLink Foliar is an effective foliar spray that can be used throughout the whole growth cycle to help keep your plants healthy. If you grow in coco/coir then we recommend this particular foliar spray due to the fact it contains easily absorbed chelated calcium that can be absorbed directly by the leaves.
