Algen Extract from House & Garden Nutrients is a cold processed seaweed extract that contains a full range of essential nutrients and natural growth hormones that plants require for healthy, vigorous development. Harvested from the cold, clean waters of the North Atlantic, Algen Extract can be absorbed immediately and promotes accelerated growth under all conditions.
Seaweed extracts are naturally rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, and natural plant hormones (auxins, cytokinins, and gibberellins). Hormones are very small signal molecules that help steer the growth and development of the plant. They are essential for cell division, root development, and bud initiation. Natural amino acids and vitamins are also present, providing for the entire spectrum of the plants’ needs.
Using only fresh, high-quality Norwegian Sea Kelp, Algen Extract is made by compressing the seaweed’s cell wall by using a high-pressure process, rupturing the cell walls of the kelp without using any chemicals or heat and releasing all of the cellular components in their natural state. The use of this technology allows the release of the plant growth substances in an active form with naturally occurring ratios, keeping the organic compounds as intact as possible while creating a 100% water-soluble product.
Algen Extract can be used in conjunction with any nutrient program or as a foliar feed. When using Algen Extract, it is very important to follow the dosage and application directions carefully. As with all products from House & Garden Nutrients, it is are very powerful, even in small amounts, and using too much can have a negative effect on the plants.
