Flora-Spore is a mixed blend of mycorrhizal species specially created to help create a thriving and dense root system in plants while increasing their ability to naturally extract elements directly from their substrate, allowing for better uptake of minerals from fertilizers. Mycorrhizal fungi have traditionally aided plants in widespread growth by acting as the intermediary between their roots and solid minerals. In the natural world, these organisms form a symbiotic relationship with most all vascular plants, making them a central component of the rhizosphere (the ecological zone existing around and influenced by roots and associated micro-organisms). Once they have colonized a root system successfully, mycorrhizal fungi secrete acids to dissolve surrounding minerals, which aids in increasing the efficiency of absorption of essential elements to the host plant. Recreate this natural (and hundreds of millions of years old) relationship in your habitat with CaribSea's Flora-Spore!
