Aloe Vera is a nutrient accumulator and works well when foliar sprayed onto plant leaves just before sunlight. Nutrient accumulators are great sources for the full panorama of elements that your plants need. It contains a plethora of amino acids (Isoleucine, Lysine, Glutamine, to name a few) along with enzymes (Amylase, Catalase, Cellulase) as well as micro nutrients (Vitamins A, C, E, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12) along with choline, calcium, magnesium, zinc and more. But that’s not all! Aloe vera also has lignins and polysaccharides including Galactose and Xylose.
Aloe Vera has two very important compounds for overall health growth, saponins and salycilic acid. Saponins are typically promoted as wetting agents or surfactant, but their role is far more complex than that. Their roles relate to triggering plants in different systems, most specifically the system acquired resistance (SAR) and hormone acquired resistance (HAR).
I recommend foliar spraying your plants with Aloe Vera 3 times per week.
*Important: Aloe Vera gel will ferment within 20 minutes after 20 minutes of exposure to air.
