Plant Success - Orca Liquid Mycorrhizae
Mother Nature's Gift to Growers
Orca is an easy-to-use, all-in-one treatment that inoculates root-zones with four strains of endomycorrhizal fungi and 11 strains of highly beneficial bacteria. They form a symbiotic relationship with plants, facilitating a massively increased level of nutrient uptake, warding off pathogens and promoting glowing, radiant plant health. Mother nature has evolved these complex microbial systems over billions of years, and Orca makes it easy to take advantage of their growth-enhancing, yield-boosting biological properties in any system and in any growing medium! By cultivating a complex culture of beneficial microbes, you'll even help to prevent issues with root disease, the bane of many a hydroponic gardener's life. 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 Orca Works:
There are two main types of beneficial fungi: endomycorrhizal and ectomycorrhizal. Endomycorrhizae are the most effective form of beneficial fungi for a typical indoor garden. In nature, they 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 around the roots, whereas endo (inside) varieties actually penetrate the root cells, facilitating a greater level of nutrient uptake through a close symbiotic relationship.
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.
How to use Orca:
For soil growers, Orca can be mixed with water at a rate of 0.25ml per litre.
For hydroponic growers, a treatment of 5ml for every 20 litres of water should be run every 2 weeks, throughout the grow and bloom phases, stopping 4 weeks before harvest time.
Do not use this product alongside hydrogen peroxide products, like Liquid Oxygen, which will kill off the microbes before they have a chance to multiply.
