Myco Lightning is a Mycorrhizal Fungi that is essential for the health of your plants. You'll find Mycorrhizae colonizing in the root system of plants, but what you may not know is how this Fungi colony can seriously increase the production of your plants when added as an amendment.
My does Mycorrizhal Fungi do?
Mycorrhizae increases the available surface area of the plants root system to maximize the intake of nutrients and water absorption. The root system of the plant and the fungi colony around the roots work in harmony to feed each other and provide EXPLOSIVE GROWTH for the plant growing above the soil.
When to Apply
Mycorrhizal fungi works best when you use it at the seed starting or planting stages. However, even plants that are already established stand to benefit greatly from the use of this amazing fungi.
If you're starting from seed, always mix into seed starter medium before planting seeds.
When transplanting, always apply around root ball to lessen the amount of shock the plant may experience and to provide a quick boost of nutrient uptake to the recently relocated plant.
In vegetation state, it is beneficial to add a top dressing around the base of the plant and gently tamp or mix into the surface layer of soil. Follow this with a localized watering around the base of the plant.
Seed Starting: Add to moist seed starter medium and thoroughly mix before planting. Approximately 1/2tsp per cell if using a 72-cell seed starter tray or 1020 tray. If using alternative sized cells, make sure to use approximately 12tbsp total per 10x20 sized tray.
Transplanting: Create a hole large enough for the existing root ball and apply directly to moist root ball, as well as the newly dug hole.
Top Dressing: Apply directly around base of plant and gently tamp or mix into top layer of soil.
