Genesis - Pro-Tect Mush
|Nutrient Type||Root Booster|
Joe's thoughts on this product: - Genesis nutrients have been a huge favourite of many loyal growers out there for years. Most suppliers get this product imported in its liquid form which results in a relatively high price. Ours is imported in a saturated paste form (called a mush or concentrate) and is then made up to Genesis's high quality recipe by the user, by simply mixing the concentrate in the bottle with hot water.

How Genesis - Pro-Tect Mush Works:
Genesis Pro-Tect is based on the legendary SM-90 formula – a product that’s loved by growers across the globe. It’s fully organic and biodegradable, derived from canola oil and coriander oil, and it works in a few different ways to benefit your plants. Its primary use is for protecting plants against spider mites and fungus gnats. Spraying regularly will ensure that these pests are never an issue, while also protecting against mould and leaf-spotting.
It even makes a highly effective root tonic that wards off root diseases like pythium. Any grower with experience of root disease will tell you just how damaging this can be to plant health and yield – in many cases, entire crops can be wasted. By using a product like Pro-Tect, you can ensure that this is never an issue. It’s always better to be safe rather than sorry, particularly in summer, when temperatures creep up attracting pathogens and lowering oxygen levels.
Pro-Tect also acts as a surfactant (otherwise known as a wetting agent). It has the effect of lowering surface tension which makes the formula more even more effective as a foliar feed, reducing the gathering of droplets and creating a much finer, more even spread across plant materials. This is also useful when administering as a root feed, improving the penetration and absorption rates substrates like soil and coco.
Using Genesis - Pro-Tect Mush:
Before using Pro-Tect, you must first dilute the concentrated mush. Fill the bottle ¾ of the way up with hot water, screw the lid on and shake vigorously. Once the mush is completely dissolved, you can then fill the bottle with hot water up to the fill line at the top of the bottle. Always shake the bottle before use to ensure a consistent, even mixture.
Pro-Tect can be administered via the roots in any growing medium. Official instructions are to use it at a rate of 2ml – 3ml per US gallon, which translates to roughly 0.5ml to 0.8ml per litre of nutrient solution (5ml to 8ml for a 10 litre bucket). Do this every time you change your nutrient reservoir or at least once per week.
When administering Pro-Tect as a foliar feed, mix at a ratio of 5 parts water to 1 part Pro-Tect and add to your spray bottle. Spray liberally over leaves, ensuring that you coat the undersides thoroughly.
