Using microbes in your soil is one of the best ways you can support your cannabis harvest. Microbes and plants have a mutually beneficial relationship and we’re here to help you understand the benefits of this relationship and the specific microbes to use for optimal growth. 

What are microbes, well microbes are beneficial bacteria that provide vital nutrients to plants in the soil. Let’s take a look at the symbiotic relationship between how microbes and the cannabis plants work together in soil. Plants need the proper amounts of phosphorus, potassium, and nitrogen to survive and microbes play a huge role in how much of those nutrients your plants receive.

There are nutrients already in your soil however that doesn’t mean they are naturally accessible to the plant. There’s a process that occurs in which microbes  play a vital part in breaking down the minerals for the plant to properly consume. For example, a microbe will consume Potassium, metabolize it, and excrete it in a form much more readily consumed by the plants. This process also assists in to aerate the soil, which ensures an even flow of water and nutrients. 

Microbes also feed on root excretions in the soil called exudates. These exudate have a variety of amino and organic acids, and sugars which is another great source of nutrition and when the microbes are happy, your plants will thrive!

Not sure which types of microbe additives or soil conditioner   

to use to enhance your soil? We’ve got a few suggestions. 

1) King Crab

Increase yields, maximize phosphorous uptake, and add life to the root zone! The active microbes in King Crab were specifically selected to enhance root zone performance during the vegetative stage and increase yields in the flowering stage. With 275 million organisms per mL, these microbes enhance absorption of phosphorous and micronutrients, which is key to higher yields and quality flowers.

  • 11 species of powerful bacteria specifically selected to boost phosphorous uptake and plant performance
  • Increases yield for less cost than competing products
  • Enhances phosphorous and micronutrient uptake

Soil or Hydroponics: Mix 1/2 mL per 1 gallon of water, and saturate roots. King Crab can be used with any fertilizer line.

2) Recharge    

Recharge is an all natural supplement that improves the quality of soil by adding beneficial microbes. These microbes work with plants naturally to increase available nutrition and improve plant health. Recharge contains only high quality kelp, molasses, and humic acids, plus the strongest microbe package available anywhere.

3) Fish Shit

Fish Shit is derived from feeding tilapia a proprietary mix of feed that when digested lends itself nicely to bacteria and microorganism production/growth under proper conditions. Fish Shit is the first of its kind ecosystem in a bottle. By introducing a wide variety of beneficial bacteria and microorganisms into the rhizosphere, Fish Shit creates an optimal symbiotic relationship between plant and soil. Never before has a company introduced an all living biological success story to the market.

By incorporating the right microbes and soil conditioners into your soil, your plant’s will grow strong and healthy with large buds.
