Bio-Wetter is an organic wetting agent extracted from the Yukka plant. This wetter contains natural bio stimulants and water tension breaking saponins.

Bio-Wetter, when used as a foliar spray, will:

• Reduce surface tension
• Improve the performance of pesticides
• Improve water spread and penetration
• Improve uptake of nutrients and trace elements

When used as a drench Bio-Wetter will:

• Increase biological activity within the medium
• Improve seed germination
• Improve nutrient absorption
• Stimulate plant growth
• Soften hard compacted soils

Bio-Wetter is also an excellent anti-stress agent helping your plants to recover from things such as transplanting, extreme temperatures, toxic shock and transportation damage.

We highly recommend the use of this excellent wetting agent when applying any foliar sprays to maximise penetration and spread. This is an excellent tool when applying Plant Magic ESSENCE.

Directions for use:

Foliar spray: Mix 1ml to 1.5ml per litre of water.
Soil Drench: Mix 2.5ml to 3ml per litre of water.

Bio-Wetter can be purchased from your local retailer as well as Greens Horticulture

When using this in conjunction with the essence, should they be mixed together into the same sprayer, or should this be applied first?

Also, should the essence be used with the sprayer on a more course setting so as not to shred the trichoderma spores?

You mix it with the essence after it's brewed. so it's 50% essence, 50% aerated water and 1.5 ml bio wetter per litre of liquid.

and yes, out it on as coarse a spray as possible. and dont pump it too much or the pressure with kill the spores.

My understanding is its just yucca extract, its much more concentrated, ie no need for preservitives, it has uk organic certification, complies with (EEC) No 2092/91 regulations for organic food production also organic production in the usa.

I would not spray my plants with unknown chemicals, ie I do not know what Depactol is, I for sure do not want copper sulphate on my plants or in my compost, while it may be a fungicide I do not want to smoke its residuals.
Q. how do i make seeds?

A. You take a splinter off my cross, tie a few hairs to one end of it, dip the hairs into the pollen and lightly brush the pistils with it.

sodium benzoate is a preservative and can be found in fruits like cranberries too. 0,1% of copper sulfate will hardly be noticed in the dosage of 1-2 ml per litre, that would be like 0,0001 - 0,0002 % per litre solution. A Bordeaux mixture contains about 1% copper sulfate I believe. Of course you could give BioNova a call -_-

Who cares if the amounts are small it goes against all organic principles to add chemicals or use them unnecessarily. Its like GMO's no amount is acceptable.

I chop up a lemon and chuck it in as i brew, this works great as a spreader, gives great coverage!

Never tried it because I don't believe citric acid or lemon juice would act as a wetting agent.

The only disadvantage I can see is the dissapointment in finding it doesn't work.

How often can this be used as a soil drench please? I'm thinking of spraying with the catalyst and then watering with this (i use autopots so will be the only time i water the top). I've just started 12/12 and was thinking of doing each once a week 1l of water in each pot (spray would prob be 1/2l), just applied essence so would I be right to do it next weekend and both at the same time or 2/3 days apart? ta

Ot1 uses the bio-wetter every time he waters but just minute amounts no where near the recommended dose for the soil drench on the bottle. how minute a dose in ml/l i dont know you would have to ask the man himself

Hey there PM folks - I find myself wondering just why this stuff is so damned expensive?!? You have any plans on bringing the price down? I mean that's © £72/litre! - Your other products seem rather reasonably priced indeed by comparison.

Cheers for your input.
