All plants require potash, which is more commonly called potassium. It increases a plant's resistance to disease, aids in the production of starches, controls root growth, regulates the opening and closing of pores in plant cells (called stomata), is necessary for plant protein formation, helps build the celluose needed for stalk and stem strength, and helps with the process of photosynthesis. Hope this answers all your questions!
