Organic Micronized Whole Leaf Aloe Powder

Cuttings / Vegative Growth

Sun dried, whole leaf!

Aloe Vera is full of helpful lignins that allow the plant to use the nutrient and moisture supply more efficiently, it also helps to reduce stress. 

Whole Leaf Aloe Powder (Aloe Barbadensis) super concentrated 100% Aloe.

Plants supplemented with Aloe Vera grow healthier, larger and greener as the plant is better able to use UV light allowing for more efficient photosynthesis. 

Aloe Vera is amazing when used as a foliar spray, but is also perfect for seed raising, cloning, cutting soaks and vegetative growth. 

This is ideal for the vegative stage of a plant's cycle and is used as an alternative to clonex in organic horticulture. 


Enzymes, Plant Growth Regulators (PGRs), Bio-stimulants, and Benefits of Aloe Vera-Based Bio-Stimulant

Enzymes:

  1. Amylase: Breaks down starches into sugars, aiding in plant energy.
  2. Protease: Helps in breaking down proteins into amino acids.
  3. Cellulase: Decomposes cellulose, aiding in organic matter breakdown.
  4. Lipase: Breaks down fats, improving nutrient absorption.

Plant Growth Regulators (PGRs):

  1. Auxins: Promotes root initiation and growth.
  2. Gibberellins: Stimulates stem elongation, seed germination, and flowering.
  3. Cytokinins: Promotes cell division and shoot formation.
  4. Ethylene: Regulates fruit ripening and leaf abscission.

Bio-stimulants:

  1. Polysaccharides: Enhances soil microbiome, improves water retention.
  2. Amino Acids: Acts as precursors to growth hormones, enhances nutrient uptake.
  3. Vitamins: Improves plant vitality and resistance to stress.
  4. Saponins: Natural detergents that enhance nutrient uptake and pest resistance.

Benefits:

  1. Enhanced Root Growth: Stimulates the development of strong and healthy roots.
  2. Improved Nutrient Uptake: Facilitates better absorption of nutrients from the soil.
  3. Stress Resistance: Increases tolerance to drought, salinity, and temperature extremes.
  4. Enhanced Growth and Yield: Promotes overall plant growth and increases crop yield.
  5. Soil Health Improvement: Enhances soil structure and microbial activity.
  6. Disease Resistance: Provides resistance against certain pathogens and pests.
