Diatomaceous Earth 1L /1kg



Diatomaceous Earth is a natural source of Plant Available Silica and trace elements.

Silica (Si) is an important element for plants, essential to good health. Silica is taken up and deposited in plant tissue, enhancing the plant’s ability to deal with both biological and environmental stresses. This in turn benefits the grower by resulting in significantly increased yields.

Can also be used as a top dressing to kill all soft bodied insects in your substrate.


1L (approx. 1kg)


Diatomaceous Earth is made from fossilized water plants and is a natural occurring siliceous sedimentary mineral compound from the remains of algae-like plants called diatom. The plants have been part of earth’s ecology system dating back to prehistoric times. The chalk deposits the diotoms left are called diatomite, the diatoms are mined  and ground up to  make a powder that has a look and a feel much like talcum powder.

Diatomacous Earth s a mineral based pestcide and its composition is approximately 3% magnesium, 5% sodium, 2% iron, 19% calcium, 33% silicon along with several other elements.

Diatomaceous Earth may be used as a barrier to control pests: adult flea beetles, sawfly, coddling moth, twig borer, thrips, mites, cockroach, slugs, snails, aphids, earwigs, silverfish, and ants. Can be used for bedbugs, cabbage root flies, carrot root flies, fleas, pillbugs, ticks and is helpful in dealing with fungus gnats.

Can be used Indoors and Outdoors

Agricultural grade Diatomaceous Earth will kill all insects, including beneficial ones, so please use sparingly!

Although silica is not essential for plant growth and development, it can provide many benefits. It helps strengthen cell walls, guards against environmental stress, improves the uptake of water and minerals and adds an extra level of protection against fungal diseases such as powdery mildew.
