A root development system boosting plant growth
Available in 3 size packs 60g, 150g and 360g.
Mycorrhizal Fungi are widespread throughout nature and are a fundamental reason for normal plant growth and development. Over 90% of all plants associate with these natural organisms as a mechanism for sustained nutrient and water supply.
Shortly after application the fungi contained in Rootgrow will begin to colonise the plant or tree rots, extending the root system into the surrounding soil via an extensive network of fungal filaments (up to 20 meters have been recorder in a sugar cube of soil). These thread-like filaments extract nutrients and water from a large soil volume and exchange them for carbon from the plant. This secondary root system, when established, links the root systems of the adjacent plants or trees and helps share, more efficiently, nutrient resources throughout the plant community.
