ProActive PKB with added Boron

PK Boosters have gained themselves a solid reputation amongst growers, having been used for countless years to improve crops throughout the world. Their chief mode of action is simply to supply the extra phosphor and potassium that a fruiting body requires; increasing the osmotic pressure and improving the transportation of mobile elements throughout the plant as a whole. One big difference with this PK booster is the addition of boron. Boron is a highly under-rated microelement, whose application alongside a pk booster massively improves sugar transportation, nutrient uptake, and cell wall production.

Make sure you maximise your harvest with Pro-Active PK Booster today.
