Myco-Nutrient is a special blend of 4 endomycorrhizal fungi, natural minerals and organic materials to create a balanced Bioactive Fertilizer that is safe to use in your Naturalistic or Bioactive vivarium or terrarium.
“Endomycorrhizal fungi are beneficial microscopic organisms that live in the soil and have evolved a symbiotic relationship with approximately 85% of the world’s plant species over the past several hundred million years. These fungi predate the evolution of terrestrial plants, and it was the partnership with mycorrhizal fungi that allowed plants to begin to colonize dry land and create life on Earth as we know it” –mycorrhizae.com
Over time live plants will deplete all the nutrients available within your vivarium or terrarium substrate. While it’s true the feces from your pets does help replenish some of these lost nutrients, it’s simply not enough. Combining the bioactive power of mycorrhizal fungi with ingredients that are safe to use in a terrarium, supercharges any soil and delivers the minerals and nutrients to your plants faster than they could on their own. Resulting in healthier, robust and more lush plants in your home terrarium!
Myco-Nutrient is an equally balanced NPK plant fertilizer also known as a 4-4-4 fertilizer. This is a low dosage of NPK and is safe to use with most plants and soils within a terrarium.
Nitrogen (N) – nitrogen is largely responsible for the growth of leaves on the plant.
Phosphorus (P) – Phosphorus is largely responsible for root growth and flower and fruit development.
Potassium (K) – Potassium is a nutrient that helps the overall functions of the plant perform correctly.
How to use Myco-Nutrient:
Mix Myco-Nutrient directly into your substrate when you’re first building your Naturalistic or Bioactive terrarium or vivarium. You can reapply Myco-Nutrient every 6-12 months as needed, by top dressing your substrate and then wetting it down. Mix it into the substrate whenever possible for best result. Do spread it out evenly around your terrarium.
Blend a 30gm bag of Myco-Nutrient with every 7-10 liters of soil or substrate in your terrarium when first building it. Our 30gm bags are perfect to mix into a substrate covering a standard 18”x18” terrarium. You can use one 30gm bag to mix into TWO standard 12”x12” terrarium. Use a 1.5 bags for an 18”x24” terrarium and 2 bags to blend into the substrate of an 18”X36”
Please wash your hands before and after using Myco-Nutrient and avoid inhaling the dust as it may irritate you.
