DRENCH ANTITRANSPIRANT

Root Zone Antitranspirant

Root-Zone is an entirely new type of anti-transpirant that is drenched into the soil. Unlike typical spray anti-transpirants that attempt to plug stomatal openings with a film, Root-Zone is a humectant formulation that is drenched into the root system. This conditions the plant to produce additional amounts of abscisic acid (ABA) thus closing the stomata and reducing its own transpiration rate naturally. Root-Zone anti-transpirant is most effective on all types of containerized plants.

 

 

WHY AND WHEN TO USE ROOT-ZONE

Root-Zone should be drenched into the soil or soilless media of all containerized plants prior to transplanting, storing, shipping or display. It should also be used to protect plants against extreme weather conditions or any other possible environmental trauma that can cause transpiration stress. Transpiration manifests itself in plants through wilting, turgidity loss and drying. These concerns can be eliminated with a single drench application of Root-Zone prior to the expected problem. Use Root-Zone anytime high quality appearance and hardiness need to be maintained.

No one wins when plants have to be replaced. It is tough on the pocket book and reputation. EXTERIOR GROUNDS MAINTENANCE: If you have to water every other day and could change that to every two or three days imagine the water and labor costs you could save. It also means a healthier plant by reducing root disease from over watering.
