Perhaps instead of being a dick you could enlighten me with your wealth of experience using potassium silicate in liquid form in soil. The fact you found a days reading in a few minutes doesn't surprise me your signature says it all. The amount of views this thread has had with no answers says to me others are interested in this question. Just a little back ground mate so your next post doesn't sound so ignorant, I am new to this forum after coming across from another forum I was a member of for over 3 years I found it getting a bit quiet. As you know you post a question and get 3 contradicting answers. I might post a question a year on growing mate as i understand the best way to learn is research and more importantly experimenting. I am currently doing just that with two plants using the potassium silicate in liquid form at different strengths. I would have posted my results so far soon enough but i didnt want to pre empt any answer to my question. By the way both plants showed some negative side effects so far. I have used and already know all i need to know on diatomaceous earth. But that wasn't the question was it?? If you have something to share Id like to hear it, if your just here for a wind up id ask you find some one else to annoy.
