Urbanns Natural Soil Conditioner with Diatomaceous Earth for Organic Silicon based Natural Soil Conditioning and Nutrient Enhancement. Natural soil conditioner is a Silicon based soil conditioner which supplies silica to plants. Silicon (Si) is a valuable element for plant growth. Natural Soil Conditioner improves absorption capacity, physical & structural properties of the soil & also facilitates plant nutrition, insect and disease resistance. Application of Natural Soil Conditioner enhances translocation of nutrients within the plant and increase water efficiency by reducing transpiration. The deposition of Si in the plant tissues reduces transpiration rates & also provides a physical barrier to pathogens and insects. Diatomaceous Earth (DE) based Natural Soil Conditioner granules are also excellent for sandy soils. In sandy soils, the DE particles absorb water that would otherwise just run through the sand, and make it available to the plants. This is why many golf courses use it in their sand-based greens and tees. DE is compatible with other soil components and it may be blended with fertilizers. It can be applied into existing soils, sprinkled into the base of new plantings or used as a top dressing (non-dusting). DE Soil Conditioner granules can be used as a growing medium for a hydroponics and bonsai.
