Proactive Self Defence - 1 litre
Defend your plants against the strain and stress of disease, while improving your crop quality!
Self Defence is a vaccine that puts your plants on high alert at the first signs of disease. It helps to improve the overall quality of your plants and yields, whilst protecting them against stresses and thickening cell walls.
- Protects your plants from stresses and signs of disease, as a preventative measure
- Higher production of peroxidases
- Improves the overall crop quality
- Thickens cell wall, therefore increasing leaf density and protection against environmental factors
- Prevents spores from germinating on leaf surfaces

How Proactive Self Defence Works:
Self Defence penetrates your plant’s rooting system and works to improve production of peroxidases, thicken the cell walls, and improve nutrient uptake. It also contributes to the meristematic activity within your plants at a very high level, and combats the first signs of disease and stress. Self Defence should ultimately be used as a preventative, not as a cure.
By putting your plants on high alert, it makes it easier for the ingredients to fight off any potential environmental stresses that might plague your plants. This prevention helps your plant’s overall health, and stops spores from forming on the plant’s leaves and flowers.
Although it should be used when early signs of disease begin to appear, it should also be used throughout the vegetative growth and flowering stage, to make sure that these symptoms don’t show up in the first place. This protective barrier is due to the concentration and extraction process of the enzymes used.
How to use Proactive Self Defence:
Proactive nutrients and boosters are superb BUT if you use a reservoir in your system you need to keep it very well mixed. Using an air pump and air stone will NOT be sufficient. We strongly recommend the use of a purpose designed nutrient solution circulator such as one of the Sicce Water Circulators: Sicce Voyager Nano 1000 or Sicce Voyager Nano 2000
As with all nutrients, boosters and additives, never mix them together in their concentrated form (i.e. straight out of the bottle). Always add each nutrient, booster or additive to your reservoir or feed water in turn, giving the solution a good stir to mix it in before adding the next one.
0.25 – 0.5ml per litre of water depending on the stage of growth or your desired EC levels
