Wilt Guard from Canadian Xpress is a unique product that helps to minimize transpiration from plants in times of root problems/disease.
When a plant, especially in hydroponic systems becomes infected with a root disease such as pythium, roots are destroyed which can severely hinder the uptake of water. If plants are transpiring at the same rate as when they were healthy but they cannot uptake water to sustain their turgidity, they will begin to wilt. Wilt Guard minimizes transpiration by decreasing stomatal aperture through strengthening the osmotic potential within the plant. This helps to close the guard cells on the outside of the stomata and prevent transpiration.
