Develop root systems and improve nutrient cycling
Down To Earth™ Root Growth Enhancer is a super fine all-purpose combination of Endomycorrhizal and Ectomycorrhizal Fungi plus humic acids to benefit a diverse selection of plants, trees and shrubs. These microscopic soil organisms are critical for developing expansive root systems, improving nutrient cycling and soil structure and protecting against a variety of plant stresses including drought and environmental extremes. This easy to use, water-soluble formula will aid in dramatically increasing root growth for more vigorous plants and trees. DTE™ Soluble Root Growth Enhancer can be watered in to porous media in gardens, seed beds or propagation trays or applied directly to seeds, roots and cuttings when transplanting.
