Liquid W-8 is a blend of simple and complex carbohydrates along with proprietarily extracted triacontanol, yucca extracts, bio-available amino acids, ascorbic acid and low molecular weight humic acid. These ingredients are what give your plants the natural ability to produce its own carbohydrate supply.

Liquid W-8 is an excellent carbohydrate supplement that provides an added energy source for your plants giving you huge impressive flowers and fruits. Beneficial carb sources support both your plant directly and act as a food source for the microbial life in the root zone. This leads to increased absorption of essential nutrients and growth stimulants such as triacontanol.

Liquid W-8, as previously stated is an expansive blend of simple and complex carbohydrates. We have used multiple sources of carbohydrates to make sure we have achieved the right profile or ratio to enable the maximum benefit.

In order for carbohydrates to be absorbed with the least amount of effort a humic source such as fulvic acid is needed to help chelate and elicit a hormone like response that increases the permeability of the root membranes allowing easier uptake. Liquid W-8 has natural surfactants such as yucca and the naturally derived plant steroid triacontanol. The formula is balanced with bio-available L form amino acids and ascorbic acid. With all these components Liquid W-8 is the premier flowering carbohydrate super supplement.

How does it work?

Liquid W-8 works by providing a blend of carbohydrates that the plant can utilize as a food source. Flowering plants tend to expend an enormous amount of energy producing floral sites and fruiting bodies. By supplying a readily available food source such as Liquid W-8 the plant has the ability to focus on creating more flower sites with larger flowers and fruit naturally increasing yield. Plants as mentioned need an abundant steady flow of energy. In order for a plant to absorb carbohydrates efficiently they need to have present plant hormones or substances that behave like plant hormones such as humic substances that allow for rapid assimilation. Humic substances also have a chelating effect on essential elements providing easy transport into the plant tissue where they can be utilized. Liquid W-8 uses multiple forms of carbohydrates both simple and complex assuring the plant always has a steady supply of essential carbs.

An added benefit to introducing carbohydrates via the root zone is that they provide a carbon source for beneficial microbes that when properly supported with a product such as Liquid W-8 can expand the ability of the root zone to absorb nutrients and other substances by up to 500%. Increased transport of vital fluids directly translates to increased yields both in mass and quality.

Added triacontanol allows the plant to assimilate more carbon dioxide, speed up photosynthesis, increase cell density and put on considerable size. Triacontanol has long been considered a steroid for plants that can be found in Beeswax (source for Green Planet) and waxy cuticles of some plants. By adding Triacontanol, growth rates and yields can be increased by up to 45%.

Liquid W-8 is a multi dimensional product that is built on balance and purpose which is why we also add L-form amino acids and natural surfactants such as yucca schidegra to tie it all together so that all the parts work in harmony maximizing your quantity and quality.

Why it works? Liquid W-8 works because it contains the following:

- Dextrose, arabinose, xylose, glucose, fructose, maltose are just some of the carbohydrates in Liquid W-8 which are derived from organic unsulfured molasses, natural corn dextrose, wild honey and raw sugar cane to form a truly outstanding flowering supplement. External sources of carbohydrates allow the plant to focus its energy on flowering and essential oil production instead of taxing itself trying to produce food.

- Also known as fulvic acid, plays a vital role as a chelator of essential minerals and organic compounds allowing them to pass through cell membranes much more efficiently. Fulvic acid stimulates enzyme production critical for plant functions. One of the most important functions of fulvic acid is its ability to transport the other components of Liquid W-8 and other important flowering materials into the cells where they are needed most.

These are the building blocks of protein. Only L-Form amino acids are assimilated properly by plants. L-amino acids help to increase chlorophyll concentration leading to higher rates of photosynthesis. They have a chelating effect on micronutrients, increasing the absorption and transportation throughout the plant. L-amino acids are also precursors or activators of phytohormones and growth substances enhancing the levels of terpenoids, phenolics, flavonoids and alkaloids. They also help reduce plant stress by strengthening cell walls.

- This is an alcohol based sugar found in high concentrations of beeswax and alfalfa. It has a wide range series of effects stimulating the natural production of plant hormones involved in flowering. Triacontanol has been proven to stimulate photosynthesis, increase chlorophyll content, increase cell density and increase CO2 assimilation while allowing the plant to process more light to supercharge the production of essential fluids and cell building. Triacontanol found in Liquid W-8 has been proven scientifically to have a direct effect on dry weight. Triacontanol is not found in that many products due to its high expense. We use a unique series of extraction techniques to ensure a consistent and powerful source of this amazing plant steroid.

- This is a natural surfactant rich in saponins that allows the components in Liquid W-8 to be fully utilized.

- This is an essential vitamin found in all plant cells and is said to be responsible for many of the processes in plant growth and maturity. Plants require adequate amounts of this vitamin in order to support rapid cell growth, protect the plant from the harmful effects of UV light, and to dramatically increase the resin and essential oil content of the flowers

Key Points:

  • Instant energy for plants
  • Food source for beneficial microbes
  • Contains a complex blend of carbohydrates
  • Increases resin and essential oil production
  • Great value
  • Protects against plant stress
  • Increases flavor and taste
  • Increases yields

How to use it?

Liquid W-8 should be used throughout the flowering stage right through to harvest. By adding Liquid W-8 right up to the end available nutrients are chelated and utilized allowing for better flavor.
