Gene expression refers to all of the normal control processes inside plant cells which direct and govern plant characteristics such as growth, yield, seed production and ability to tolerate stress.
Therefore stress is not ideal for those keen gardeners amongst us that enjoy growing a lot of our own produce.
Things that can stress plants are mainly categorised into two groups; abiotic stressors and biotic stressors.
Anything living is known as biotic stress.
Anything else is known as abiotic stress, or non-living stress.
We’ve broken down these categories for you:
Biotic stress - insects on plants
Abiotic stress - frosty plant conditions
Plants can recover from stress if it is mild or short term.
For abiotic stress recovery, the first line of defence is in the roots of the plant. The chances of survival are higher if the root system is robust, and the surrounding soil is healthy and biologically diverse.
The Magic Molecule Co. products promote strong root development, for better anchoring, access to nutrients and adequate water, and therefore aid recovery from harsh weather conditions and other abiotic stressors present in your garden.
