When you know about enzyms, you go for: SLF100
SLF-100 is a commercially proven enzymatic formula with over 18 years of proven success. It is a 100% organic and OMRI listed formula specifically designed to break out salts. Used as a cleanser for hydroponic systems and soilless media, SLF-100 goes to work immediately to keep your system running smooth and free of toxic buildup.
SLF stands for Submerged Liquid Fermentation.
SLF is a microbe based enzymatic product.
What is SLF-100 ?
” SLF stands for Submerged Liquid Fermentation. SLF is a microbe based enzymatic
product. We start with a base of microbes which we add to several species of grasses that we
grow. We then bring in plants from extreme environments, for their ability to survive those
extremes, and we let it ferment. Most of the plants we bring in are proprietary but one plant
comes from a salt flat for the plants ability to survive high EC’s. From this plant we get bacteria
like Virgibacillus pantothenticus which is known to help plants survive osmotic stress and
produces enzymes necessary to remediate high salt environments.
SLF-100 was actually created to break down salts.
Breaking phosphorus bonds and calcium build up (bone gum) are beneficial
side effects from the use of SLF-100. It is not just a microbial product. There are microbes left
from the fermentation process and researching the specific microbes will help to understand what
the product is capable of. “
About the competition
” Without saying too much negative about other enzyme-products, I would just say that those are Cellulase based enzyme products. SLF-100 is an array of beneficial bacteria that provide a host different kinds of enzymes along with their specific attributes.”
What is the formula ?
” SLF-100 is a formulation of multiple species of bacteria, however there are four that really
stand out and make their presence known.
• Pseudomonas putida – Phosphor solubilizer – amazing bacteria, also an antagonist for
pythium and fusarium.
• Virgibacillus pantothenticus – production of ectoine and proline, causes plants to adapt to
environmental stressors – among many other things
• Bacillus thuringiensis – helps with some pests – also has anti-pathogenic properties.
• Bacillus subtillus – catalase-positive bacteria – meaning given the ability to grow
overnight in a simple sugar medium and added to H2O2 it will break the extra oxygen
atom off the end – the real enzyme test. “

How to use SLF-100
SLF-100 is effective in all phases of the growing cycle and is compatible with all nutrients, fertilizers, and rooting compounds. SLF-100 is also compatible with H2O2. Thanks to a proprietary blend of naturally occurring enzymes, SLF-100 is pH neutral in concentrated form and has no added sugars or NPK. It helps to fight off “root rot”, kills fungus gnats and is proven to be an effective antagonist for pythium
