Root diseases can wreak havoc in your indoor garden in a disturbingly short space of time. By the time the signs of sickness are visible above ground level, there will already be considerable damage below ground. Hydroponic setups, with a shared reservoir are particularly at risk because diseases can take hold and spread to every plant's roots like wildfire. Normal peroxide can treat root diseases very effectively but, it only stays active in a system for a very short space of time. Silver Bullet Roots changes all that, creating a disinfectant that lasts for around 5 weeks and can be used as preventative measure or on-going treatment. This will ensure root diseases never get a hold on your plants roots in the first place.

How Silver Bullet Roots Works:
Silver Bullet is a peroxide treatment that has been greatly enhanced by cleverly combining it with silver. The chemical bonding of the silver makes the peroxide super effective at killing microbes and far longer lasting once in the tank. Silver Bullet Roots lasts 5 times longer than standard peroxide treatments meaning, you don't have to keep adding it to your tank to maintain its killing power and is used at a lower dosage than other hydrogen peroxide treatments, making Silver Bullet Roots highly cost effective. Silver Bullet Roots kills virtually all types of microbes including fungi spores, bacteria, protozoa and viruses while, removing biofilm leaving pathogens nowhere to hide.
The silver element of the product is incredibly important, and it is what makes it unique. The silver ions in Silver Bullet begin by seeking out negative charges of bacteria/fungal spores surrounding your plants' roots and inside your hydroponic system. Once attached to the bacteria/fungi, they start to catalyse and break down the microbe’s protective barriers. Once the microbe is exposed, the hydrogen peroxide destroys it by oxidisation. Once dead, the microbe loses its negative charge and the silver moves on to the next target. As it moves on, the silver re-stabilises with other hydrogen peroxide molecules, which promotes higher oxygen levels around your roots, leading to healthier and stronger growth.
Using Silver Bullet Roots:
Make sure to use appropriate protective gear, such as eye goggles, face protection and gloves when handling this substance. If the product is accidently inhaled, move to fresh air space, and if respiratory problems occur, consult a medical professional immediately. If the product makes contact with eyes or skin, rinse out with water carefully and consult a doctor if feeling unwell.
Silver Bullet Roots kills all types of microbe, both friendly and pathogenic. This makes Silver Bullet Roots incompatible with organic/biological gardening as these methods of growing depend on beneficial microbes to break down food for the plant.
