Using Microbes in Organic Cultivation requires a different mind-set. If your not accustomed to working with microbes in horticulture then your going to need to get familiar with these posts below. First you’ll have too understand the world of differences when applying microbe technology vs pesticides and harsh chemicals.

To begin with a horticulturist using chemicals generally speaking starts out with a sterile growth. What I mean is, the chemical fertilizers he uses has killed most of the microorganisms in his substrate. In a typical scenario, due to the lack of competition a photogenic “opportunist” or worse, a straight forward killer pathogen has room to expand his colony. After some time the symptoms of this pathogen begin to appear. At that point a fungicide or general pesticide is applied and the roots growing medium dies once again.

The proper way of managing plants with beneficial and or predatory type microbes is ongoing and not just when problem is evident. You introduce the types of beneficial microbes from the beginning of cultivation, in germinating cuttings first plantings and during the growth and flowering period. In this way there will never be a pathogen taking over the colony. If you use Microbes in Organic Cultivation properly and plan your colony well, your going to have perfect growth.
