Foliar Spray for Silica

What up DGC. I was wondering how long can I have a gallon of water with silica on the shelf. I can’t use the whole gallon when I foliar spray my 6 plants. It calls for .6 mils per gallon sense I use mono silicic acid. And should I use yucca for a surfactant?

    Silica (like carbon) needs something to bond to in solution to create structure. As long as you don’t have a high concentration of other minerals in the solution, the silica should stay soluble in solution with temps and pH playing a factor. Silica has a wide pH range from 4.0-10. Adding yucca will give silica minerals to bond to over time, limiting self life. Yucca can be used as a surfactant, just be aware of how acidic it is also. If I’m foliar spraying anything, I’m using Optic Foliar transport as the surfactant.

    I feel like silica really clings to stuff. I just posted a question about the same sort of thing kind of. Well about silica. Funny. I just leave it mixed up with some cow mag in it. I don’t know if that’s good or bad. Nothing bad has happened lol and I do it under lights on with no problems yet either.
