B.A.C. at 420 Sesh Amsterdam
At 420 Sesh Amsterdam this year, patrons had a chance to sample B.A.C.’s X-Seed line. X-Seed is a 100% organic product, designed to increase the percentage of seeds which germinate and reduce their germination time, while promoting root growth and stimulation. X-Seed also helps a plant to be more resistant to pathogenic fungi, in particular, specific diseases that attack the roots. It can be used on many variety of seeds ranging from cannabis to many other small vegetable and flower seeds. To use this product, one simply places the seeds in the X-Seed Solution for 60 prior to sowing seeds.
Seeds can be sowed up to 6 – 10 days after treating with X-Seed. 8 days after sowing, the treated plants have been observed to be between 300 and 400% better developed than those untreated. The root systems of the treated plants possess an increased the ability to absorb fertilizers and nutrients which are needed for the development of a healthy plant.
Key features of X-Seed:
-Contains no synthetic chemicals
-Increases the growing power of the plant
-Improves the immune system of the plant
-Promotes healthy root system and powerful shoots
X-Seed is also found to be a very useful product in the mass production of cuttings, as shortening germination time is a big advantage to growers((www.kweekhuis.nl)).
