Kelp: The Unsung Hero of a Plant's Flowering Phase
Kelp has been used in gardening for centuries. This naturally occurring material can be used to enrich soils as fertilizer, mulching material or even as a liquid fertilizer spray and is one of the main ingredients in our own Poseidon's Gift Micronized Fertilizer and Khelated Kelp Liquid Fertilizer.
The kelp that we use in our products is known as Ascophyllum Nodosum. It is sourced directly from the northern Atlantic Ocean. Very heavily loaded in beneficial nutrients and minerals. Ascophyllum Nodosum has plenty of nutrients that encourage plant health and wellness without sapping minerals and other essential nutrients in your soil. These nutrients include but are not limited to:
Cytokinins, naturally occurring hormones in kelp that that promote cell division in the roots and shoots of your plants. Cytokinins are responsible for cell division and chloroplast development which help the plant during stressful growing times and helps delay aging.
Auxins, plant hormones produced in the stem tip that promotes cell elongation. Auxins moves to the darker side of the plant, causing the cells there to grow larger than corresponding cells on the lighter side of the plant.
Gibberellins, plant hormones that regulate growth and influence various developmental processes, including stem elongation, germination, dormancy, flowering, sex expression, enzyme induction, and leaf and fruit senescence.
When building the royal Knight Ag product line, we needed to make sure that abundance of kelp was involved. Kelp can is a great benefit to all plant species. Especially, during the tough times of any plant growth cycle.
Royal Knight AG created two stand out materials that harness the full power of kelp.
