Potassium Importance

Potassium has been identified as an activator of 60-plus enzymes. Potassium is involved in the synthesis of starches from the sugars produced. Finally, potassium plays a critical role in the energy-generating processes occurring in the plant cell.  Additionally, potassium plays an important role in modulating the inter cellular environment. Essentially by buffering pH and promoting favorable electrochemical conditions at reaction sites.

Potassium is thought by many to be second only to nitrogen in plant nutritional importance. Potassium takes part in the photosynthesis process. This gives the plant its green color, and is crucial to plant health and development. Potassium is a nutrient that helps increase the weight, density, and volume of your plants harvest.

 When the pH of the soil is too low, it makes the medium too acidic. This causes stress in the root zone and prevents the uptake of potassium. When it comes to the pH issue, make sure you establish and maintain a healthy pH. In super soil grows, the pH value should be neutral. That being between 6.0-7.0 for the optimal potassium uptake.  Calcium and nitrogen will decrease the absorption of potassium in your super soil.
