The Connoisseur's Choice of Microbial Supplement
Great White is by far the most comprehensive mycorrhizal supplement in the 'Plant Success' range, with 7 species of ectomycorrhizal, 9 species of endomycorrhizal and 14 species of benefical bacteria. When combined, these microbials will colonise the root-zone, turning it into a super fortress that guards against troublesome pathogens, while accelerating nutrient uptake so that your plants maximise the use of every last drop of feed. This is one for the true connoisseurs! We strongly recommend using Ecothrive Neutralise with this product to avoid the chlorine/chloramine in tap water from inhibiting, or even killing, the beneficial microbes.

How Great White Works
There are two main types of beneficial fungi: endomycorrhizal and ectomycorrhizal. Endomycorrhizae tend to grow alongside vegetables, shrubs, flowers and fruit trees. The 'ecto' variety, however is more adapted to growing on conifers and oak trees. Ecto (outside) varieties tend to grow in the substrate itself, whereas endo (inside) varieties actually penetrate the root cells, facilitating a greater level of nutrient uptake through a close symbiotic relationship. The combination of the two ensures that all bases are covered, regardless of your chosen plant species.
The 11 different forms of beneficial bacteria contained in Orca work to create a dominant microbial ecosystem that wards off pathogenic bacteria and fungi, preventing issues like pythium, which can destroy entire crops in no time at all. If you've ever lost a harvest to pythium, you'll understand just how painful it can be. A thriving culture of microbials is one of your best defenses against it - a gift from mother nature.
