How House and Garden Rhizo Force works
Enzymes work by breaking down dead roots and other bits of matter into useable food for your plants and for microbes present in the substrate, reducing the risk of root disease and delivering nutrients that promote gleaming plant health.
Beneficial bacteria perform a number of functions inside the grow medium. One of their key roles is in converting nitrogen from the atmosphere to a form that's available to your plants, while also helping to build organic matter and improve overall fertility.
Mycorrhizal fungi attaches itself to root systems, increasing their overall surface area and dramatically improving plants' ability to uptake nutrients. In return, mycorrhizals use up a very small quantity of plant sugars, so it's worth supplementing with a product that contains carbohydrates, like Honey ES, that will provide an external source of nourishment for the microherd. Mycorrhizal fungi is one of the secret weapons of competition gardeners - it has been used for decades to produce prize winning fruits and vegetables. True professionals just wouldn't grow without it.
How to use House and Garden Rhizo Force
Use at a rate of 1 tablespoon per 5 litre container or 1kg for every to 10 square metres of soil. Most gardeners will get the best benefits by blending it into the substrate at the aforementioned rates when potting up. It can also be 'top dressed' by sprinkling it over the tops of containers and watering it in.
