Enhancing Photosynthesis in Plants
In order to grow, plants need photosynthesis. It is the process by which green plants transform light energy into chemical energy. Light energy is captured and used to convert water, carbon dioxide and minerals into oxygen and energy rich organic compounds.
They use the sunlight and the greens in their leaves to make sugars from carbon dioxide and water. This sugar is then used as energy so that the plant can grow.
Cellular respiration is the process of oxidising food molecules, like glucose to carbon dioxide and water. The energy released is trapped in the form of ATP for use by all the energy-consuming activities of the cell.
Maximising Light to Maximise Yield
Light reactions are the first stage of photosynthesis, during which the energy captured drives the production of ATP, which is a high energy molecule used to store energy in plants.
In an indoor garden, reflecting light is one of the most important things a grower can do to get the most out of the available light energy. Our Silver Lightite and Diamond Lightite sheeting offers optimum light return and are 100% light tight. Both Diamond Lightite and Silver Lightite offer 97% reflectance to maximise your light and produce bigger yields, whilst reducing your energy costs. Diamond Lightite also has a raised diamond diffused pattern to spread light more evenly over the canopy of the plant allowing the light to be situated closer to your plants and also providing maximum reflection of light lumens.
Plants growing indoors under artificial light often lack enough CO2 to efficiently photosynthesis. Our Exhale CO2 Bags are designed to release enough CO2 to solve this problem resulting in larger plants and larger yields. The bags work through photosynthesis, the power lying in the mycelial mass inside the vented cultivator. The mycelial mass cultivates carbon dioxide and the one-way breather patch releases CO2 continually for up to 6 months. Exhale CO2 bags come complete and are cultivating carbon dioxide even before you get them home. No need to turn it on or off, simply place it in your grow space and leave it to do its job.
Photosynthesis Plus: Photosynthetic Bacteria
To enhance the process of photosynthesis even further photosynthesis plus is a formula that has been developed to enhance photosynthesis and biological functions by allowing plants to capture and utilise radiant energy more efficiently. It speeds up uptake and distribution of macro and micro nutrients required for plant growth and increased yields whilst reducing input costs.
These products will also be catalysts in the photosynthesis process:
RAW Fulvic Acid – 100% water soluble. SOD (super oxide dismutases) protects the call walls, allowing better uptake of water and nutrients. SOD also protects the chloroplast and mitochondrial membranes utilising light from photosynthesis to give better energy from cellular metabolism.
RAW Nitrogen is an essential macro element for plant growth used in large quantities by the plant. Nitrogen is one of the main chemical elements required for plant growth and reproduction. Nitrogen is a component of chlorophyll and so essential for photosynthesis. Plants use nitrogen by absorbing either nitrate or ammonium ions through roots. A plant deficient in nitrogen will show yellowing in its leaves due to underdeveloped chloroplasts and the green pigmented chlorophyll.
