Mykos Mycorrhizae - Xtreme Gardening
Mykos Mycorrhizae is a natural and organic species of beneficial soil fungi that creates 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 ecto-mycorrhizae.
What is Mykos?
Pure - Fresh - Alive
MYKOS is a fast-growing, beneficial fungus that increases nutrient and water uptake by forming a symbiotic relationship with the roots of a plant.
MYKOS is needed to break down, cycle, and retain nutrients as well as provide a front line of defense against environmental stresses, pathogens, and diseases.
MYKOS will continue to grow with your plants becoming an extension of the roots and administering better efficiency and sustainability. With a larger and healthier root system, plants are given the opportunity to increase crop yields and secondary metabolites.
MYKOS works fast and creates strong roots in 95% of common plants.
Which Species Does MYKOS Contain?
MYKOS is a single species of Endo-mycorrhizal fungi, Rhizophagus intraradices, eliminating any type of root competition. Why only Endo-mycorrhizae? Ecto-mycorrhizae has no beneficial effect on vegetables, fruits, flowers, and herbs.
MYKOS helps new plantings reduce transplant shock by stimulating new root growth.
How does MYKOS Work?
MYKOS forms hyphae that 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 into the root cell.
Plants supply MYKOS with energy in the form of carbohydrates that are produced during photosynthesis. Individual plants can become connected with other plants through this mycorrhizal network, sharing nutrients, sugars, and water as well as attracting more soil microbes.
What Are The Benefits of Using Mykos?
MYKOS protects your plants against drought and 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 converts 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!
