Our MycoMinerals™ is our All in One Organic Soil Amendment, registered with the CDFA as an Organic Input Material. MycoMinerals™ OrganicSoil Amendment contains useful amounts of almost every essential element and any that are missing will be provided by its mycorrhizae. By comparison, synthetic plant foods are often sold as "complete" or "balanced" fertilizers because they contain N-P-K elements. This is nothing more than marketing puffery: The most hyped plant foods contain only those three elements, or at most, an additional few of the other 16 essential nutrient elements. Each and every one of the essential elements are equally important to a plant's full health, although they are needed in greatly differing amounts. If any one of the elements are missing from soil, then plants can never be completely healthy (much like humans lacking some essential vitamin or mineral in their diet). Find them* in our MycoMinerals™ product! (*Element N is produced by the mycorrhizae's microbial activity.) For best results, use only dry organic fertilizers such as pelleted fish if you want some gradual-release nitrogen. Fast-acting synthetic fertilizers may actually weaken plant performance by harming beneficial soil organisms. Adding a well decomposed compost (not cheap bagged materials) is also recommended if soil organic levels are extremely low. After initial soil set up, we suggest limiting further tillage as a good cultural practice. Don't disturb the soil life. A fresh scattering of MycoMinerals™ Organic Soil Amendment every year with a mulch covering will maintain good soil health and fertility.
Garden areas: Scatter 1 lb. per 50 square feet on beds and work into the top 4-6 inches of soil.
Potting Soil: Blend in 1 cup (.5 lb.) per cubic foot of potting mix.
Existing Plants: Scatter and scratch material into top layer of soil around plants, or probe down into roots zones of container plants.
NOTE: For best results, use only with gradual release lower-analysis organic fertilizers. Strong synthetic fertilizers can harm the mycorrhizal fungi.
