Compare our Slate Scape Trail Mix to Granite:

  • Denotes the Primary chemical elements required by plants for normal growth.
  • Slate contains 18.61% of the elements; Granite contains 2.13% of the elements.
  • Granite is mainly Silica Dioxide at 77.64% with only very minor traces of chemical elements required for plant root and stem growth.
  • Calcium is necessary for the formation of strong cell walls of plants. A lack of calcium may stunt plant growth.
  • Magnesium forms the core of every molecule of chlorophyll and it is thus impossible for green plants to grow without it.
  • Iron is necessary to form chlorophyll, which together with light, water, and air makes it possible for plants, through the
    process of photosynthesis, to make food.
  • Potassium strengthens plant stems, and improves the size, color, and flavor of fruits and vegetables.
  • Phosphorous stimulates root growth, speeds the maturing of plants, and is particularly important in the formation of
    fruits and seeds.
  • Sulfur forms a part of several plant proteins and promotes the growth of roots and seeds.
