Advanced Nutrients Rhino Skin

Toughen up with this silica strengthener. Advanced Nutrients Rhino Skin releases a potassium silicate coating to fortify stems, leaves, and roots. 

Strengthens cell walls, stems, and leaves

Silica acts as a natural glue, strengthening cell walls and holding together the structure of stems and leaves. Wilting plants will grow thicker and harder and be able to support larger yields

Rhino Skin is a silica mix developed to be easily absorbed by plants. They’ll grow stronger in no time. 

Better pest and disease resistance

Not only can more robust plants support larger yields, but they’re much more resistant to common garden threats. 

Pests find it harder to bite through their tough structure. Strong, healthy plants have a higher natural immunity and can fight off disease more easily. 

Rhino Skin protects your garden from everything from harsh weather to bugs and diseases. 

Limits water loss

Since the silica in Rhino Skin “glues” together the structure of cell walls, it’s much easier to keep everything bad out. And that also means it can keep all the goodness in!

Transpiration (water loss) is important to cool plants down and transport water and minerals to the leaves for photosynthesis. However, too much water loss will dehydrate a plant. 

With a stronger cell structure, plants can better monitor their water loss. They’ll only release water for useful reasons and reduce their risk of becoming dehydrated. 

Easy to mix

Silica can sometimes be hard to mix with water. Luckily, Rhino Skin is formulated to be easy to mix - you’ll get a silky smooth nutrient with no clogging.

pH perfect

Rhino Skin is part of Advanced Nutrients’ “pH perfect” range. This means they’re highly pH stable and require little to no adjustment. 

Users should always check the pH of their nutrient solution if they have added another product that is not in the “pH perfect” range.

How to use Advanced Nutrients Rhino Skin?

Use Rhino Skin from the beginning of flowering through to 1 week before the end of the plant cycle. 

Add the usual base nutrients, then stir thoroughly and check the EC. 

Then, add Rhino Skin at a rate of 2ml/L and mix well. Never mix concentrated nutrients; always add them one at a time and stir thoroughly before adding another. 

WARNING: Rhino Skin (potassium silicate) is known as an aggressive substance and should be handled with care. It may cause damage to skin and clothing and can cause burns. Always add Rhino Skin straight to the reservoir water and mix well straight away. Do not mix aggressive substances with water or any other product while in their concentrated form. 

Always wear suitable protective clothing (such as gloves and goggles) and always keep Rhino Skin out of the reach of children.
