Mycorrhizae products contain fungi that create a symbiotic relationship with your plants and can aid tremendously in a number of stages of life.
This fungus gives new or recently transplanted plants a head start on life, and can help buffer stresses from the environment.
What is the use of Mycorrhizae?
This fungus goes by a few other names, such as beneficial bacteria and root occulants, and grows in the root zone of the plant. It forms a mutualistic relationship with the plant by establishing a network of fibers extending from the plant's original roots, and aiding in nutrient and water uptake, reaching areas and nutrients the plant originally was unable to.
Mycorrhizae benefits include:
- Increased resilience to stresses and disease
- Higher success rate when transplanting to a new environment
- Stronger plants with larger buds due to more efficient nutrient uptake
- Reduction of irrigation needs
