TNC MycorHydro is a highly concentrated water dispersible mycorrhizal inoculant developed for hydroponic applications. It contains 15 different species of mycorrhizal fungi, including Endomycorrhizae and Ectomycorrhizae as well as 5 species of Trichoderma. It also contains 13 Bacillus species – Bacteria for Nitrogen fixing, Phosphorous solublising and growth promotion.
TNC MycorHydro also contains natural bio-stimulants such as humic acid and derivatives of a natural marine algae (Ascophyllum nodosum). These include amino-acids, plant hormones – cytokinins, auxins and giberellins – as well as vitamins and trace elements.
TNC MycorHydro can be used with all hydroponic systems but has been specifically developed for use in ‘non retentive’ free draining situations. Such as when growing in clay balls, DWC, NFT and Aeroponics etc. The micro-organisms – mycorrhizae, trichoderma and bacillus will populate the root zone of the plant, growing and multiplying to form a colony living in a symbiotic relationship with the host. Hyphae (tiny microscopic filaments) from the mycorrhizae are incredibly long and they are able to transport valuable minerals such as Nitrogen, Phosphorous, Potassium and Trace elements back to the host plant and because of their length they can obtain these nutrients from a volume which is vast when compared to the plant’s root system alone. Other species (Trichoderma) will not only destroy unwanted organisms, they will induce and increase the host plants resistance to pathogens , mould and undesirable fungi, not only in the plants root system but throughout the structure of the plant. Dose - TNC MycorrHydro is not a fertiliser. For the mycorrhizal colony to establish the spores must come in to contact with the roots.
Clones and cuttings Apply rooting gel and then dip into some TNC MycorrHydro
Hand Watering, Run to waste hydroponics, AutoPot, Wilma etc 1 tsp per 5 ltr of water. Apply as a substrate drench after transplanting and once more after 2 weeks*
Recirculating hydroponic systems – flood and drain, DWC, Aeroponics etc
1 tsp per 25 ltrs of tank water. If possible, add the desired amount to some spare tank water and apply around the roots of your plants to increase chances of establishing a mycorrhizal colony.
Repeat once more after 2 weeks*
* Once a mycorrhizal colony is established there is no need to add more TNC MycorrHydro. You may wish to supplement with bacterial additives like TNC BactorrS13 however.
