WHAT IS MYCORRHIZAE....WHY DO I NEED IT
CannabisWormTea contains carefully selected mychorrizal fungus well suited to a variety of soils, soil-less grow mediums, climates and plants. These fungi build a natural microbial systems in and on the plants roots which greatly enhance plant growth and vigor. The active ingredients in the Michorrhizae we use contains 1,975,042 of viable organisms per cc. Contains non-plant food ingredients: 33% Humid acid derived from linarite 18% Ascophyllum nodosum (seaweed extract)
WHY DO I NEED MYCORRHIZAE
At around 400 million years old, the Rhynie chert contains the earliest fossil assemblage yielding plants preserved in sufficient detail to detect Michorrhizae - Mycorrhizae are present in 92% of plant families (80% of species), with Michorrhizae being the ancestral and predominant form, and indeed the most prevalent symbiotic association found in all the plant kingdom. The structure of Mycorrhizae has been highly conserved since their first appearance in the fossil record, with both the development of ectomycorrhizae, and the loss of Mycorrhizae, evolving convergently on multiple occasions.
A Mycorrhizae (Greek for fungus roots, typically seen in the plural forms Mychorrhizae or Mychorrhizae) is a symbiotic association between a fungus and the roots of a plant. In a Mycorrhizae association, the fungus may colonize the roots of a host plant, It is an important part of soil life.
This mutualistic association provides the fungus with relatively constant and direct access to glucose and sucrose produced by the plant in photosynthesis. The carbohydrates are translocated from their source location (usually leaves) to the root tissues and then to the fungal partners. In return, the plant gains the use of the mycelium's very large surface area to absorb water and mineral nutrients from the soil, thus improving the mineral absorption capabilities of the plant roots. Plant roots alone may be incapable of taking up phosphate ions that are immobilized, for example, in soils with a basic pH. The mycelium of the Mycorrhizae fungus can however access these phosphorus sources, and make them available to the plants they colonize. The mechanisms of increased absorption are both physical and chemical. Mycorrhizae mycelia are much smaller in diameter than the smallest root, and can explore a greater volume of soil, providing a larger surface area for absorption. Also, the cell membrane chemistry of fungi is different from that of plants. Mycorrhizae are especially beneficial for the plant partner in nutrient-poor soils. Mycorrhizae plants are often more resistant to diseases, such as those caused by microbial soil-borne pathogens, and are also more resistant to the effects of drought. These effects are perhaps due to the improved water and mineral uptake in Mycorrhizae plants.
Mycorrhizae form a mutualistic relationship with the roots of most plant species (and while only a small proportion of all species has been examined, 95% of these plant families are predominantly Mycorrhizae.
What Are Mycorrhizae?
The word "Mycorrhizae" literally means "fungus-roots" and defines the close mutually beneficial relationship between specialized soil fungi (mycorrhizal fungi) and plant roots. About 95% of the world's land plants form the mycorrhizal relationship in their native habitats. It is estimated that mycorrhizal fungal filaments explore huge volumes of soil compared to roots alone.
Improved nutrient and water uptake
Improved root growth
proved plant growth and yield
Reduced transplant shock
reduced drought stress
Do I Need Mycorrhizae?
In today's man-made environments plants can be greatly stressed and the relationship between fungus and root is critical. Unnatural conditions such as concrete, asphalt, roadsides, sidewalk cut outs, trenching, drain fields, air pollution, shopping malls, business districts, and suburban developments adversely effect the presence and abundance of mycorrhizal fungi.
Man-made environments often suffer from disturbance, compaction, top soil loss, and the absence of quality organic matter, conditions which reduce the habitat necessary for the mycorrhizal fungus to survive and thrive. Artificial landscapes effect the mycorrhizal relationship in two fundamental ways. First, they isolate the plant from beneficial mycorrhizal fungi available in natural settings and, secondly, they increase plant stress and the need for water, nutrients, and soil structure mediated by their below-ground "partners". Many nursery and agricultural soils lack mycorrhizae due to excessive and long-term uses of chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
The Need for Mycorrhizal Inoculation………
When water and soluble nutrients are amply provided, non-mycorrhizal seedlings can grow well in artificial growing media. However, until they form mycorrhizae, they do not adequately take up water and nutrients upon outplanting. Routine nursery practices such as fumigation, and high levels of water and nutrients produce non-mycorrhizal seedlings or seedlings with "nursery fungi" poorly adapted to individual species or field conditions. Mycorrhizal fungi that are specific to particular plants and function effectively in both the nursery and field environment.
Numerous scientific tests demonstrate that inoculating can:
