Deon is a combination of anionic, cationic and amphoteric fatty acids, aromatic substances and plant extracts dissolved in water. These are derived from the Azadirachta indica. Its oil is very well known as an ingredient in organic (non-synthetic) insecticides. Deon is a spraymix which should, preferably, be used in the first weeks of the plant. Deon removes all plant pathogenic bacteria and fungi from the plant and creates a protective layer of wax around the leaves. By removing the plant pathogenic bacteria and fungi, the young plant is given a huge spurt in growth without there being any resistance. The lower shoots will also fully sprout, resulting in a beautifully full plant. Use Deon for a superb start of your plants, due to the increased resistance to disease and insects. Let your plants shine like never before with Deon!

Nil Nat Nil Nat

Nil Nat is a biological control for Fungus Gnats. It is a microscopic crystal which, when eaten by the Sciarid Fly maggots, swells up in its gut, perforates the gut wall and kills the maggot. The first sign Fungus Gnat is usually an abundance of small 3-5mm long flies on the surface of the root ball or medium in which the plants are growing and by this stage the plant will be suffering. Each Fungus Gnat female lays 200 eggs in warm conditions. The eggs hatch out into maggots which immediately start eating the plant’s roots. These maggots, although they are small, are eating machines.
