The pure spores of two different mycorrhiza species form the active ingredient of Mini Plug. This composition is supplemented with an airy mixture of vermiculite to guarantee optimal mixing with potting soil. The high concentration of mycorrhizal spores ensures quick colonization of the root system. Endo mycorrhizal fungi are essential for healthy plant growth, for almost all potting plants. The hyphae of mycorrhiza provide the plant an extended uptake capacity by 700% average. This allows the plants to deal efficiently with water and fertilizers.
Hyphae of mycorrhizal fungi support the mobilization of P, N, S and various trace elements such as Cu and Zn to the plant. The mobilization of these elements promotes nutrient density and healthy plant growth. Research has shown that tolerance to (environmental) stress factors can be increased by the use of mycorrhiza. Plants that grow with mycorrhiza are more resistant to salinity stress conditions for example.
The use of mycorrhiza is not only important for plants, these fungi are also essential for the soil structure. By enlarging the root system, a more airy cultivation medium is created which improves water buffering capacity. The life span of roots is also extended by at least a factor of 10. Mycorrhiza colonized plants give an improved growth during transplantation.
Mini Plug is specially developed for application in container plants up to a potsize of 5 liter. For pot sizes from 5 liters, use of VA Cocktail is recommended. Use of systematic fungicide are deadly for mycorrhiza fungi. PHC only works with pure spores that contain no pathogens or root fragments. PHC can perform mycorrhiza analyzes to determine the current condition of your soil and colonization rate. Consult your product representative for tailor made advice.
