Group one, thehydrosource’s Mycorrhizae Root Fungi Endo Mycorrhiza
Group two, Kelp4less’ Endo Mycorrhizae
Group three, Natural Industries’ Actinovate
Group four, Organic Labs’ Mycostim
Groups five and six, Control, no inoculants

P.S. Groups four, five and six were sent to Oklahoma for disaster relief.

Very interesting Dutch. Clear differences!

Thanks for showing us those effects - and for your generosity in helping others!

Dutch, the first 2 or 3 groups seem to be a darker green (as well as larger) or is that my imagination?

Chris, thanks for the input. Yes they are a darker green and the stems are thicker too. I have some of those potted up for your "food pantry/plant sale". Is that next week?

Interesting results Dutch.

Hydrosource Root Fungi Endo Mycorrhizal: Glomus [COLOR=#2e6b31]intraradices[/COLOR] - 134 spores per gram

Kelp4Less Endo Mycorrhizal: [COLOR=#2e6b31]Glomus intraradices, Glomus mosseae, Glomus aggregatum, Glomus etunicatum. Did you ever get a [COLOR=#000000]spore count from them? They aren't very good at providing details on some of their products.[/COLOR][/COLOR]

Actinovate had a very good showing considering that it isn't a Myco inoculant. I guess that shows off its PGPR benefits.

Mycostim : Glomus Intraradices, Glomus Mosseae, Glomus Aggregatum - 16 propagules per cc. That's nothing compared to other Myco inoculants. Might as well be a Trichoderma only product.

At what point did you start inoculation?

Dutch May 10, 2015 10:08 AM

Thank you for your input Ray. It is much appreciated. Inoculation was done to roots during a transplant when plants were about two and a half inches tall and starting their third set of true leaves. All plants were grown using the cold treatment method (65-68F max temp).

This is a close up of group six, which was one of the control groups. I think the cold treatment probably helped to contribute to their stoutness too.

This is my first time using it, I'm confident in the product since i know who produced it. I inoculated my peppers last month and my tomatoes I started potting up only a week ago. I finished potting up the last 5 extras only last night.:lol: Everything is doing fantastic and will be ready to plant out as early as next weekend depending on the weather forecast.

Ag Bio is a re-seller of the MycoApply line for Ag and VivaGrow is their consumer retail arm. Their ebay store is the best place to buy it. 8 oz. only cost me $16.79 w/ free shipping. Good price for
a very high 4 species propagule count.
