    Sometimes, things are so well written, it would be a dis-service to paraphrase them. I ran across this page on Mycorrhizal Fungi and thought it was great info. So, here is a link to it:
    .
    Mycorrhiza - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    .
    Give it a read. Afterwards, you will have a better understanding of why these myco fungi - sold in products like Plant Sucess, Myco Magic, Sub-Culture and Super Plant Tonic - kick such serious a*s.
    .
    Add them in your grow and reap the benefits. These little fungi, mine out every last bit of P for Mary - so her buddage reaches maximum potential.
    .
    They also pump up the plants immune system by making all the necessary trace minerals soluble and kill off bad bacteria as a bonus. It's a win / win formula. So, next time someone says " There's a fungus among us - Say Cool, I was hopeing for some. "

    Just thought, I'd recycle this thread back to the top, for those who have not given it a look yet.
    .
    Sources of these fungi include Plant Sucess (OK), Myco Magic (OK) Sub-Culture (slightly better) and Super Plant Tonic (my favorite - none better).
    .
    I threw in a pic or two, to show the benefits of use.

    you think sub culture is an adequate source to innoculate the roots with myco dudes?

    Chookface..... Yes, Sub-Culture is a decent amendment. I've noticed they now sell it in a Myco fungi only mix & a Good Bacteria only mix. Hmmmm......
    .
    GH sures knows how to make a buck. They break everything down to lot's of parts - so they can make lot's of dough - selling you all the parts.
    .
    Myco Magic, Plant Sucess and Super Plant Tonic are probably better choices. They come fully assembled. Not parts & parts with more parts available for a buck.
    .
    If Sub-Culture is all you have access to - get it - any micro-beasties - wheter they be fungi or bacteria - will benefit your plants.

    Lumberjack_Ian..... I've seen the stuff on Wormsway's website for $ 20
    .
    Drumsinttown has been using it on a grow, and I was wondering how it performed. I've been using Super Plant Tonic for a while now and I absolutely love the stuff. It has myco fungi, good bacteria and trace minerals - all natural and very effective.
    .
    The company that makes it, sells it on Ebay $ 7 a bottle (plus shipping). I'm going to buy up a few extra bottles here soon. It's becoming more known, so I exspect the price to go up soon. LOL....

    Thanx for bumping this thread. There must be something wrong with the search function, 'cuz when I use it, I get alot of worthless, unrelated shit. I have been interested in mycorrhizae for a couple of months now, but could find very little here on RIU.
    Has anyone ever tried BioTone starter Plus? I have already mixed the soil for this next grow, so it's probably a moot point, but I'm interested in any first hand knowledge opinions as to it's efficacy.
    My reason for going with the BioTone over the other product with mycorrhizae only was the fact that it contained the other trace minerals (purportedly organic) as well.
    I FINALLY found a local source for bat guano and worm castings!!!! Joy!!! It's kinda funny when you start asking Q's about the organic ferts like guano, worm castings, kelp etc. I'm pretty sure that they know whats up. Not a whole lot of people (veggie growers) who go to this nursery know much about mycorrhizae or guano. Careful how much you let slip. I got a "knowing look" from the sales clerk. :blsmoke:But it's all good, I'm pretty sure she smokes too!

    yeah you can use it in your tea, there should be instructions for use on the back for hydrogardens and just follow that.

    You might be able to keep those microbeasties propagated by feeding them with a wee bit of molasses. :D

    Buffalosoulja.... The molasses you use in your tea will provide the micro-beasties (aka- good bacteria & fungi) with a food source. They will bio-convert (eat & poop it out), making it more soluble to your plants, while increasing their numbers. It will help, so do use it.
    .
    Hope this helps....
