It is best to create contact between the mycorrhizae and the plants roots opposed to simply mixing into the soil.
Small Transplants or Cuttings: ½ teaspoon under the plants roots when planting.
Potted Plants/Soil Mixes: Use 1-2 tablespoons per 1 gallon of soil.
Turf: Apply ¼-½ pounds per 1000 square feet during installation or aeration.
Why should everyone use mycorrhizae?
Around 95% of plant species benefit from mycorrhizae. There are two different types of mycorrhizae, endo and ecto. Root Naturally Mycorrhizae is Endo Mycorrhizae which is the type that is beneficial to over 80% of plant species including most leafy green plants and vegetables.
Mycorrhizae is a fungi that has a beneficial relationship with a plants roots. When Mycorrhizal fungi comes into contact with a plants roots it begins to colonize, or multiply, on the roots and begins to spread out into the surrounding soil. These strands of mycorrhizal fungi effectively become an extension of the roots and can increase the absorbtion area of a plants root system by 10 to 1,000 times. This allows the root system a more efficient intake of nutrients and water. Below is a list of the benefits enjoyed using mycorrhizae.
