Mycorrhizae actually increase the surface area of plant roots, which allows the plant to reach nutrients and water that might not be available otherwise. The fungus is actually a network of filaments that grow in and around the plant root cells, forming a mass that extends considerably beyond the plant’s root system. This makes the plant stronger, and more resistant to stress. It even protect their host plant against unwanted pathogens. Clonex® Root Maximizer® puts life into your soil by adding bountiful amounts of mycorrhizae fungi, beneficial bacteria, and trichoderma that combine to improve the health and vitality of plants. To create a mycorrhizal liquid suspension, mix at a rate of 1 teaspoon of dry product per each 1 gallon of liquid.
