Aptus Regulator

Nutrition manager and anti-stress plant enhancer

Monosilicic acid (silicon)

The only form of silicon that can be absorbed by plants is Monosilicic acid. In nature it is a complex and time consuming process for microbes to convert other forms of silicon into Monosilicic acid. 

Regulator allows silicon to be Bio-Available to the plant within hours compared to conventional silicon ie :   

Potassium-silicate :  Within weeks

Colloidal silicic acid : Within Days


Regulator is a plant growth and flowering booster that aids processes and supports plant development. Regulator strengthens crops by regulating the absorption of nutrients and increasing dry matter content. The plant strengthening function of Regulator provides maximum protection for stressful situations such as insect- and fungal attacks, heat, water and salt stress. Regulator also provides good protection against heat stress in warmer conditions/climates.

During warm periods, Regulator ensures that:
– crop with temperatures reaching 40 degrees Celsius remains green
– transpiration is reduced up to 30%
– regulates plant water management capacities, lowering the usage of water
– strengthens leafs and leaf position

Regulator improves plant defence reactions against pests and diseases. Weaker plants have been proven to be much more susceptible to pests and diseases than stronger plants. Regulator provides this extra protecting to your plants by optimising the mineral uptake and improving cellular wall structure in the plant tissue. These effects ensure that even during stressful situations, plants will continue growing with a high yield and excellent quality.

– Strengthens plant and protects during periods of stress
– Protects against heat stress
– Prevents problems with pests and diseases
– Improves uptake of nutrients
– Increases dry material ratio
– Makes plants more compact with shorter internodes distance
– Makes leaves stronger and greener
– Increases thickness of the stem

Tips & Tricks
– Always mix Regulator in a tank full of clean water before mixing other fertilisers, boosters or crop protection products.
Regulator makes plant more compact. If plants grow too high, a higher dosage of Regulator slows down plant’s growth in length. NO PGRS!!
– When using Regulator, plants can better resist higher temperatures. Up to 40° degrees Celsius plants remain green.
– Regulator increases dry material ratio. This gives an extra advantage during the drying process.

Regulator consists of a mixture of bio-available trace elements with the main component being Silica. Regulator contains a protected formula of stabilised silicic acid, the bio-available part of Silica (Si) that provides a hardening of the cell wall resulting in thicker stems, stronger leaves and an overall stronger plant. The plant creates more fibers which results in more dry matter. Silicic acid regulates the uptake of important nutrients such as nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K). 

Application and dosage
Regulator is a highly concentrated product (1:6660). A small dosage of 15 millilitres per 100 litres of water is enough for large visible effects. Due to the high concentration, Regulator is cheap to use.

Mix until Regulator is evenly distributed through the water. Then continue adding fertilisers, boosters or crop protection products. Make sure that no water or dirt mixes in the Regulator bottle/can. Always use dry and clean syringes/measuring cups when extracting Regulator.
