There is no doubt that the best mycorrhizal products play an important role in plant growth-enhancing the roots which are a major part of plant development. These fungi help enhance the soil! Which in return provides the roots with better access to air (oxygen) and water.
The Ectomycorrhizal Fungus - are found in natural environments and form visible reproductive mushroom-like structures at the feet of trees. This fungus grows between root cells without penetrating them . . .
The Endomycorrhizal Fungus - This fungus penetrates the plant cells where direct metabolic exchanges occur. It colonizes the shrubs and most herbaceous plants without forming visible structures. Arbuscules are finely branched root structures.
Pros– Helps new plants absorb transplanting shock– Stimulates new root growth– Increases root mass resulting in more nutrients and moisture absorption– Transports nutrients over large distances and delivers them directly into the root cell– Protects your plants from heat stress and drought– Keeps harmful pathogens from reaching the roots– Improves soil structure of sandy and clay soil– Creates strong roots fast
Plantworks Ltd Empathy, Rootgrow Mycorrhizal Fungi - This fungus is essential to soil life! It is a key element in establishing a secondary root system to help with nutrient intake. This fungus is a one in a lifetime use and does not need topping up again.
Pros– Grows secondary roots systems fast– Improves uptake of water and nutrients– One treatment lasts a lifetime making it affordable to use– Helps with replant problem– Restores almost dead trees with a lifetime vigorCons– Works best on trees, not plants and vegetables
Pros– Supports faster plant establishment– Accesses water beyond the root zone and deliver to the plant’s vascular network– Absorbs and delivers nutrients to the roots– Improves soil nutrients use– Improves root biomass– Absorbs and transports soil moisture from beyond the root zone to the plant’s roots– Improves stress toleranceCons– It is only useful to common plants and vegetables but not trees
Roots are very important to a plant. They anchor the plant in place, resisting the forces of nature like wind and running water. They take in oxygen, water, and nutrients from the soil for the plant to bloom. Roots are also good for the soil! When it rains, the roots hold the soil in place so that it is not washed away.
