6291 Myco Mix - pro-mix with Mycorrhiza (soilless), 2 gal bagMyco 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!
Compare Susnhine MycoMix with mycorrhizae and control mix in 6 weeks old tomato seedlings. Root system is 2-3 times larger (=better growth).
