Aleve contains manganese [Mn], iron [Fe], and select sea kelp stimulants, such as phytoalexins and stilbenes, that strengthen natural defence mechanisms in plants. Cannabis plants require sufficient levels of manganese for metabolic processes like glycosylation, ROS scavenging, and photosynthesis. Aleve replenishes low manganese levels to correct nutrient imbalances and catalyze metabolic processes by adding vitamins, betaines, mannitol, alginic acid, and other polysaccharides found in sea plants.
Mn deficiency can be a severe plant nutritional disorder in soils with high pH and partial pressure of O2 (pO2). Mn deficiency is often seen in plant tissues in dry, well-aerated soils with high amounts of organic matter. By contrast, Mn toxicity occurs on poorly drained and acidic soils, such as improperly buffered peat, in which high amounts of Mn are rendered available. In either situation, the bio-availability of Mn can impact optimum plant growth. (Broadley et al., 2012) To avoid these extremes, you can see that providing the proper soil volume that matches the plant’s evapotranspiration rate (how much water they need daily) is critical to nutrient balance.
