Xtreme Gardening MYKOS mycorrhizae is a natural and organic species of beneficial soil fungi that create a “sponge-like” mass which collects and stores nutrients and water, increasing the uptake of both. This single species of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi contains only Rhizophagus intraradices, formally known as Glomus intraradices. MYKOS does not contain any other microbes such as Trichoderma or ectomycorrhizae.
Mykos is formulated for use in soil or coco based media. Once your cuttings or seedlings are rooted into their rooting plugs, add 15ml-30ml of Mykos for each plant site when transplanting to their first containers.
MYKOS is a fast-growing, beneficial fungi that are needed to break down, cycle, and retain nutrients, providing plants with a balanced intake of food, moisture and a front line of defence against pathogens and disease. Greater nutrient accessibility leads to explosive root and plant growth as well as an exceptional harvest!
MYKOS works fast and creates strong roots in 93% of common plants. MYKOS is a single species of Endomycorrhizal fungi, Rhizophagus intraradices, eliminating any type of root competition. Why only Endo mycorrhizae? Because Ecto mycorrhizae have no beneficial effect on vegetables, fruits, flowers and herbs.
MYKOS helps new plantings reduce transplant shock by stimulating root growth and making more nutrients available. MYKOS forms hyphae which increase the root mass resulting in more absorption of nutrients and moisture. The fungal network can transport nutrients over large distances and deliver them directly to the root cell. Plants supply MYKOS with energy in the form of carbohydrates that are produced during photosynthesis. Individual plants are connected with other plants through this mycorrhizal network and can share nutrients, sugars and water.
MYKOS protects your plants against drought & heat stress. As well as keeping harmful pathogens from making root contact. Mykos can also improve the soil structure both in clay soil and sandy soil. Mykos also helps break down organic compounds and convert them into plant available plant food.
MYKOS has been used to break the last 10 World-Records for ‘Xtreme plant growth, including a 2,261.5 lb. pumpkin in 2016!
