What are mycorrhizae?
They are friendly fungi that will inhabit the roots of plants providing them with the ultimate conditions for root growth and the ability to take up water and nutrients from the soil. When you apply the mycorrhizae inoculant to plant roots and soil they will grow throughout the soil around the plant roots by extending their hyphae. These hyphae are able to extend into minute areas of the soil to take up and feed the plant roots precisely what they need from the soil.
What do mycorrhizae do for your plants?
Mycorrhizae are a natural way for a plant to sustain itself. Any stress that the plant encounters are offset by the benefits of the mycorrhizae. Some examples of these symbiotic relationships between the fungi and plant roots are in helping the plant withstand attacks of root knot nematodes, soil borne diseases- both fungal and bacterial, high winds, drought, salt in the soil, intense heat and more. We can’t say enough for all the good we have seen mycorrhizae do so we will show you.
In the first picture we have some tomato plants that were severely neglected. They had been left growing in 2-inch pots for weeks on end. They were extremely deficient in nutrients, proper light, infested with whiteflies etc. as you can see. We repotted some of them on 08/14/05 scoring the tangled rootballs and wetting them with Golden Harvest Fertilizer. The mycorrhizae were then sprinkled on the damp roots at the rate of 1/4 teaspoon per plant and they were repotted into larger containers. We use a mix of soil, plant-based compost and Coco Peat as the potting medium.
