What are microbes?
Microbes are living microscopic organisms too small for the naked eye and the foundation of biology and since they are the bottom of the food chain. All living things from plants to animals depend on these amazing creatures to do a wide variety of functions critical to life. Think of Nutrenics Plant & Soil Biostimulant as pre & pro biotics for plants and soil.
Is Nutrenics Biostimulant a fertiliser?
No- fertiliser is a general term used for plant food which is still needed by plants either in the form of fertiliser or compost. The microbes’ job is to get this to the plants efficiently.
Does this replace fertilisers?
No- what ever is taken out of the soil needs to be put back in and this is what fertilisers are for. You will still need to add fertilisers if you are not composting back your debris. For additional fruiting you may need some extra fruiting fertiliser. Nutrenics Biostimulant will make sure that the fertiliser available is well absorbed by the plants.
What is the best dosage?
Our recommended dosage should be fine for most plants and trees however for extra dramatic results, you can increase the dosage by doubling or tripling for the first month to kick-start the system.
Does it work on all plants?
Yes, it works on anything that photosynthesises (has leaves). However, do not use it on fungi like mushrooms unless you want to get rid of them since some of the microbes have strong anti-fungal properties.
Can I overdose?
Within the recommended dosages, no but be aware, once the plants reach their optimums, putting more is not going to help much further.
Are they harmful to humans and animals?
There are no pathogens or harmful chemicals in Nutrenics so they are not harmful to humans and animals. However, since clinical tests for human consumption have not been performed, we do not recommend ingesting them.
How long do they last?
1 Litre Bottle: Nutrenics gives an expiry date of 6 months from bottling but they will be fine for use for over 1 year.
Use within 3 months of purchase. The diluted spray does not last as long as the concentrate.
