Mycoroot Supreme R 69.00 R 80.00
Premium Mycorrhizal, Mycoroot, is the home of the organic mycorrhizal fungus. Mycoroot Supreme is an organic microbial fertilizer that will help enhance root structure by doubling it in size, boosts yield, and production. What are Mycorrhizal Fungi? Mycorrhiza means “fungus root.” These are beneficial fungi found in undisturbed soils These fungi form a symbiotic, mutually beneficial relationship with 90% of all plant roots The host plant receives mineral nutrients from the fungus The fungus obtains sugars from the host plant There are several types of mycorrhizal associations The most commonly encountered are the arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi. How do they function? The fungus grows using fungal filaments called hyphae The filaments grow both inside and outside of the roots The fungus is intimately associated with the plant roots Providing a link between the soil and the plant They extend the plant rooting system improving root functions They allow for better exploitation of the soil environment They increase the surface area available for nutrient uptake They make nutrients soluble which usually are not accessible to plant roots They influence the soil environment covered by the fungal filaments Encouraging the growth of beneficial bacteria They ward off unwanted organisms which can cause plants diseases Such as eelworms and root rot They produce a biological glue That promotes soil stability and increases moisture penetration and aeration of the soil Characteristic AM fungal structures formed within the roots of a host plant. Characteristic AM fungal structures formed within the roots of a host plant. A = finely branched arbuscules formed within plant cells. V = vesicle produced by some AM fungi required for the storage of carbon compounds. IRH = intraradical hyphae grow between the root cells. These structures are only visible once the roots have been specially prepared in the Mycoroot laboratory and are visible under a high powered microscope. So what is the problem? Unfortunately, because the soil and the beneficial organisms in this environment will not be regarded as a valuable resource, disturbance, land degradation, and application of chemical inputs, particularly those containing high levels of phosphates, and the non-discriminate use of some pesticides, have resulted in depleted natural populations. So what is the solution? To maximize the benefits from these AM fungi, have the mycorrhizal status of your soil tested. How to use: Mycoroot is used during transplanting. It helps with plant growth, health, and flowering. Add 5-10ml (1-2 teaspoons) per transplant depending on the size of the plant. Sprinkle at the base of the plant's roots in the whole during transplant and this should stop the shock of transplant, also helps with the uptake of nutrients and water. Size of container: 200ml

Freedom Farms Seed Starter Growing Medium R 169.00
Freedom Farms Seedstarter is formulated in South Africa as a premium germination medium formulated to create the ideal conditions for seed germination. The finer soil matrix, excellent aeration, seedling specific nutrient levels and inoculation with beneficial microorganisms, are the main reasons for the high success rate of the Seed starter. Ingredients: Coco Coir, Fine Vermiculite, Perlite, Volcanic Rock Dust, Bone Meal, Gypsum, Fermented probiotic bran. Volume: 15L Application: – A fine matrix specifically formulated for seed germination – Free from pathogens and weeds – Excellent for all varieties of seeds – Suitable for both inorganic and organic fertilizer amendments Directions of use: Add germination soil to seedling tray and water thoroughly the first time. Plant seeds and water again lightly for seeds to settle. After the first drying cycle, keep the soil moist. Ideal watering pH for Freedom Farms Craft Soils Ideal pH 5.5 – 6.0 Pure coconut coir has a pH between 5.8 – 6.8. A substrate/soil pH of between 5.5 and 6.5 is ideal for plant nutrient uptake under both organic and inorganic fertiliser regimes. Freedom Farms Coco coir is buffered and charged with natural amendments. The high Calcium content of our amendments maintains the pH in the 6.5-6.8 range and will prevent a decrease in pH (substrate acidification) resulting from fertiliser application or waterings at a low pH. The soil pH is therefore buffered against decreasing pH. On the other hand, an incremental increase in pH resulting from tap water (pH 7-8.5) use can cause the soil pH to increase above the optimal range for nutrient uptake. The soil pH is therefore not buffered against increasing pH caused by using un-pH’d tap water. Watering with a pH of 5.5-6.0 will ensure the pH of the soil remains in the optimal range of 5.5-6.5. About Freedom Farms: Freedom Farms Craft Soils are complete, handcrafted* living soils, formulated* for optimal plant growth and performance in South Africa.
