Mary's Root Boost contains 4 Species Endo-Mycorrhizae (Glomus intraradices, G. mosseae, G. aggregatum, G. etunicatum)
Why should everyone use mycorrhizae?
Mary's Root Boost Mycorrhizae is Endo Mycorrhizae which is the type that is beneficial to over 80% of plant species including most leafy green plants and vegetables.
Mycorrhizae is a fungi that has a beneficial relationship with a plants roots. When Mycorrhizal fungi comes into contact with a plants roots it begins to colonize, or multiply, on the roots and begins to spread out into the surrounding soil. These strands of mycorrhizal fungi effectively become an extension of the roots and can increase the absorbtion area of a plants root system by 10 to 1,000 times. This allows the root system a more efficient intake of nutrients and water.
They are particularly effective for agricultural plants that have high water and nutritional needs. Over 50,000 University studies have highlighted the benefits of mycorrhizal colonization on the health and yield of plants.Benefits Include:
Reduces Drought Stress
Reduces Transplant Shock
Increases Overall Plant Hardiness
Promotes Nutrient Uptake
It is best to create contact between the mycorrhizae and the plants roots opposed to simply mixing into the soil.
Small Transplants or Cuttings: Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon on the plants roots while planting.
Potted Plants/Soil Mixes: Use 1-2 teaspoons per 1 gallon of soil.
Soil Drench: Mix 1 Tablespoon per gallon of water and keep agitated to guarantee even distribution. One gallon of mix will treat 50 one gallon pots. Best to apply twice per year, once in spring and fall
