FAQs

What is xVital?

xVital is a natural nitrate fertilizer that combines nitrogen with ionized water. Designed by a team of engineers & scientists at xVirity, xVital is a natural way to improve your agricultural efficiency and performance.

Why is xVital better than conventional fertilizers?

With virtually no salt, xVital is a superior choice. Conventional nitrogen fertilizers—such as ammonium nitrate, potassium nitrate and calcium nitrate—have high salt content and can cause the medium to become acidic. Residual salt levels, in hydroponic nutrient solutions or soil, can reduce germination; prevent absorption of adequate water by seeds, plants, and tree roots; and weaken growth, even killing the vegetation. 

In addition, xVital can be used as a pH downer, helping you adjust the pH of your solution to maximize plants’ uptake of essential nutrient ions.

Is xVital safe for the environment?

Yes. xVital is engineered to complement your current plant care regimen without harmful side effects of salts and alkalinity

Are there chemicals in xVital?

No. xVirity’s patented plasma technology uses an electromagnetic field instead of chemicals: Unlike conventional fertilizers, xVital is not bound or attached to salt. Which means a better harvest—and a better environment.

When should I use xVital?

  • During nitrate uptake cycle
  • For seed germination and root propagation
  • To replenish plant growth and color due to nitrogen deficiency
  • With foliar injectors, drip, and surface irrigation
  • For root rot treatment and prevention
  • To promote growth activity in tissue culture laboratory
  • In nursery production

How much fertilizer do I need?

Add one (1) part xVital to fifteen (15) parts water to make the xVital fertilizing solution. Depending on your plant’s nitrogen requirements, other xVital-to-water solution ratios may be used, not to exceed a ratio of one (1) part xVital to one (1) part water. Try our Ratio Calculator for more details.  

What plants, and or crops should this fertilizer be used on?

xVital is great for fruits, vegetables, herbs, flowers, trees, shrubs and houseplants.

Are xVirity products certified as organic?

xVital is a natural nitrate fertilizer, but is not certified organic due to USDA labeling regulations. Since we use ionization, USDA does not classify us as organic.

How does xVital improve hydroponic farming?

We keep it clean.

Conventional nitrogen fertilizers—such as ammonium nitrate, potassium nitrate and calcium nitrate—have high salt content and can cause the medium to become acidic. They leave residual salt levels, in hydroponic nutrient solutions or soil, which can reduce germination; prevent absorption of adequate water by seeds, plants, and tree roots; and weaken growth, even killing the vegetation. 

But xVital contains virtually no salt. And that gives you better water absorption, seed germination and plant growth.

What is the shelf life of xVital?

The shelf life of the product with the cap on is 6-8 months. The product should be stored in cool, dry place, tightly closed in the original container.

How does xVital improve pH levels?

pH is a major factor in plants’ uptake of essential nutrient ions. Used as a pH downer, xVital can help you adjust the pH of your solution to the optimal range.

It’s important to note that focusing on solely on pH control can actually be detrimental to plant growth. Adding too much of a pH downer often results a disruption of the nutrient balance and consequently, damage to the system.

How can I use xVital for pH control without dilution?

An alternative to dilution is to use a pH upper in combination with xVital. We recommend using potassium carbonate, often referred to as potash. As a polyprotic base, potassium carbonate is efficient in raising pH while also delivering potassium, an essential nutrient, to the system. Its high solubility reduces the risk of both clogging in hydroponic systems and salt deposits in soil. Like xVital, potassium carbonate can be derived from natural sources at a low cost.

Are there any published white papers or studies indicating the effectiveness of xVital?

Yes – please click on this link for a study involving wheat grass.
