Myco Mix - pro-mix with Mycorrhiza (soilless), 2 gal bag

Click to see full-size image

Myco Mix is the amazing underground secret to a better garden! This professional growing medium with Mycorrhiza is a must for establishing plants, recovering weak plants, and for transplanting applications, including seedlings and cuttings. Its active ingredient, Rhizophagus irregularis, is a soil inoculant, or endophyte (microbe) that promotes plant health.
- Stimulates roots for faster establishment
- Helps release nutrients from the soil and aid nutrient uptake by the plant
- Helps plants overcome stress caused by transplanting or drought
- Increases yields, fruiting and flowering, survivability
- Easy to use, just add around root ball at planting time
A mycorrhiza (from Greek mico - fungus, and rhiza - root) is a symbiotic association between a fungus and a plant. The term mycorrhiza refers to the role of the fungus in the plant's rhizosphere, its root system. Mycorrhizae play important roles in plant nutrition, soil biology, and soil chemistry. These specialized fungi colonize plant roots to create a symbiotic root-and-mycelial network within the surrounding soils, increasing efficiency in nutrient and water absorption to optimize plant performance. Mycorrhizal fungi increase the surface absorbing area of roots as much as 50 times, thereby greatly improving the ability of the plant to access soil resources. They help to solubilize hard-to-capture nutrients, such as organic nitrogen, phosphorus, iron and other tightly bound soil nutrients.
Without mycorrhiza, some plants, especially fruit trees, won't develop properly (example: Lychee seedlings never develop into established plants without it).
Try the Myco-mix on your difficult growing projects and watch the miracle happen!

Stifftia chrysantha - Pompom, Rabo-de-Cutia

Click to see full-size image

Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunRegular waterRed/crimson/vinous flowersYellow/orange flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

Stifftia chrysantha is an exotic, rare flowering small tree with spectacular flowers, endemic to the vast tropical savanna ecoregion of Brazil called Cerrado. It grows into a bushy, attractive tree between 8 and 15 ft tall and starts flowering within 1.5 - 2.5 years from seed. It is a very rewarding plant that blooms 9 months out of the year, starting in Winter with great intensity during July-September, with each flower staying on the plant for several weeks. Seeds ripen from September through November.
The tree belongs to Aster family (Compositae) and has nothing to do with Powderpuffs which are from Bean (Fabaceae) family. The flower has 30 to 40 green, imbricated scales with short hairs, and actinomorphic corollas are orange below and darker above. After flowering, the inflorescence blows apart, which would scatter seeds. The dried center remaining is very attractive, like a small dried flower, and lasts for many months.
Stifftia can be grown in full sun to partial shade and is relatively cold tolerant, can take short cold spells.
The plant doesn't like wet feet and heavy/soggy soils; requires very well drained, acidic soil. We strongly recommend to use our professional soilless mix. Let soil slightly dry between waterings. It can be grown in full sun to partial shade and is relatively cold tolerant, can take short cold spells. If grown in a pot, try to keep the container shaded because roots don't like to be overheated. The plant needs monthly applications of slow release fertilizer as well as extra iron - use micro-nutrients to keep leaves green and healthy.
RECOMMENDED FERTILIZERS:
Pink N Good Daily Plant Food - Flower Booster
Tropical Allure - Smart-Release Booster
