A: Because it makes your plants grow.
A: SUNSHINE™ is a plant steroid, like cortisone, it affects hormonal systems. When these systems are modified the results can be enhanced growth and vigor. Other documented results have been increased root growth and greater resistance to both heat and cold stress. Sunshine offers many opportunities for improved plant production.
A: Brassinosteroids were not identified until 1979 and their broad effects upon plant growth are still being discovered. These steroids are rare in nature and very expensive to extract. It is fortunate that they express their effects at remarkably low concentrations (5ppb) that makes their use by growers possible.
A: That depends upon a number of factors. The maturity of the plant (seedlings are most responsive) but mature plants are also exhibit modified growth and vigor due to enhanced root growth. The wide range of genera being treated also results in some variation. Some results are difficult to see such as greater stress (cold or heat) resistance. Treated plants will out perform non-treated plants.
A: SUNSHINE™ is 100% ecologically safe, nontoxic to human, pets, useful insects, and fish. It is a natural plant growth hormone, originally derived from bee-collected pollen of Yellow Turnip (Brassica napus).
A: Yes, you can. The active ingredient, Epibrassinolide, is a natural bioregulator and traditionally participates in food chains of people and mammalians, and its metabolic pathway is evolutionary habitual for them. This fact is an important prerequisite for considering SUNSHINE™ as ecologically safe nontoxic chemical, that has been supported by the toxicological studies.
Moreover, stimulation by SUNSHINE™ of natural resources of a plant allows to diminish the employment of other plant protective agents, some of which are conflicting with respect to the environment. SUNSHINE™ is a representative of a new generation of agricultural chemicals, which have no interference with the environment, act in natural doses and in a natural way in extremely low doses, which are comparable with the natural content of epibrassinolide in a plant.
A: SUNSHINE™ is not a "magic-cure-all" medicine where one can't find its active ingredient. The hormone is well-known and used in different countries along with other hormones for promote growth, fruiting, blooming, rooting, etc. For more dettailed information and advanced research, see our Research page.
Q: This product is so inexpensive, can I just use it on all my plants year round, will it make them super strong? I have couple dying plants, will SUNSHINE™ produce a miracle to bring them back to life?
A: SUNSHINE™ is not bringing a dead plant back to live and it should be used only when needed: for stressed plants, for plants which need extra boost, for cold protection, etc. Don't use it all the time. It's as bad as using steroids for building your muscles. This booster is not a substitution for a proper plant care. It won't help if you keep a plant dry, dark and starving.
A: SUNSHINE™ is not a fertilizer and won't replace it. You have to apply fertilizer and micro-element solution to keep your plants healthy, according to label directions.
A: The active ingredient in SUNSHINE™ is a large complex molecule that is biologically active and may be adversely affected by other chemicals. It is advised to use it only in distilled water at the recommended concentrations for best results.
Q: I recently purchased the sunshine. How many days can I store it after mixing with a gallon of water?
A: We recommend mixing the Sunshine only as needed, as it can only be stored up to a couple days while mixed together.
Q: I purchased a set of different SUNSHINE products. Is it the same steroid packaged with different instructions for different applications?
A: The difference in formulation of SUNSHINE products is in concentration and ratio of active and inactive ingredients. However keep in mind that general formula of SUNSHINE-E also works well for all listed applications, because the active ingredient is effective at very low doses. Different products have slightly improved formulas as a result of our experimental research.
