Already a big hit across the pond, Xtreme Gardening products are the retail arm of Reforestation Technologies International (RTI); the United States’ oldest-running and highly regarded producer of Mycorrhizal Inoculum.
Mykos is an all-natural, effective root promoter made up of pure Mychorrhizal Inoculum. Mychorizzae are shown to have many beneficial effects in a growing environment; namely providing a biological connection between the roots and the soil and extending the plants’ ability to search for nutrients and water.
Mychorrhizal Inoculum is a soil fungus. Once it has been applied to plant roots, this fungus will colonise the root system and carry on living for the life of the plant. The Mychorrizae spread thin fungal filaments called ‘Hyphae’ from the roots through the growing environment. These filaments reach far beyond where the root hairs of the plant can reach and give the plant access to otherwise inaccessible nutrients and water.
Mychorrizae also help protect the plant from pests and disease by naturally producing arbruscules that contain disease-supressing phenols. Whenever a root pathogen tries attacking the root system, the arbruscules release a fungicide to eliminate the pathogen.
Mykos has been proven to be an extremely beneficial product. Studies have shown it to increase biomass and overall yields by up to 300% and it is responsible for growing four world record-breaking vegetables.
Mykos will work with your plants to:
- Increase nutrient uptake and nutrient availability
- Increase drought-resistance and availability of water
- Help boost plant defence system and fight off pests and disease
- Speed up growth and increase the overall mass / yield of your plants
Mykos can be used in both soil and hydroponic systems.
