Glycerine Tincture and Plant Health

For many plants, rubbing the leaves or foliar spraying to make them shiny, clean and healthy is one of the main aspects of their care. This is especially true of those flowers in which the main beauty lies precisely in the large, fleshy, rich green, dense leaves. For example, orchid, rubbery ficus, yucca and of course the cannabis plant. A huge plus of using glycerin tonic is its natural composition. It cleans the surface and feeds the plants at the same time. After all, succinic acid increases the immunity of plants, stimulates the growth of greenery (including new shoots), strengthens the leaves, and accelerates the regeneration of damaged tissues. It is simple to use: you just need to spray all the greens with a tonic.

 Glycerine tincture encapsulates the compound and enzymes we are after making them readily avalible, water saluible and one of best natrual emulsifier when used in conjuction with soup nut. Glycerin helps to restore plants in case of stress or some kind of damage, and is an additional source of energy.

Many tonics are applied to foliage. They are absorbed mainly through the stomata (pores), which are predominantly on the underside of the leaf.

The best time to apply foliar feeds is when the foliage stomata are wide open, in the early morning or evening. In hot sun stomata close to prevent too much transpiration (loss of water).

Relatively low concentrations are applied and nutrients are absorbed rapidly (usually within 6-24 hours).

Foliar feeding can act as a catalyst, increasing the plant’s nutrient uptake from the soil.

The benefit of using glycerine tincture 

  • Enhance the Growth and Productivity of Plants

Glycerin allows deeper penetration of plant regulators such as indole-beta-acetic acid. The consequence is a quick acceleration in the rooting and a greater quantity of harvest.

Reaserch indicates that foliar spray of glycerine can boost the growth of plants like cannabis.

Another study claims that the use of glycerol ensures high cell density and viability including in harsh environmental conditions.

  • As a Stimulant of Soil Microbes

Glycerin has been found to boost the metabolism of nitrogen-fixing bacteria in the soil. This enables them to replenish their energy to carry out important anabolic functions such as cell division, differentiation, motility, and growth.

  •  As a Moisture Enhancer

Diluted glycerin solutions can be used to moisten and aerate the growing medium better., especially around roots resulting in more successful water absorption.

  •  As a Seed Germination Stimulant

Soaking seeds in a solution of diluted glycerin helps to counteract the adverse impact of salinity on growth and metabolism, allowing seeds to germinate with greater vigor and exhibit higher levels of essential oils and alkaloids that promote health.

  • As a Fungicide

Glycerine acts as an effective bactericidal and fungicidal substance. It bars the spread of powdery mildew, mites, and other garden pests.
