PRO-MIX HP MYCORRHIZAE™ is a high porosity peat-based growing medium ideal for water sensitive crops, rooting cutting and/or low-light growing conditions that contains a beneficial mycorrhizal inoculum (Glomus intraradices). These microscopic fungi attach to and colonize the root systems working in symbiosis with plants. It benefits the plant by increasing water and nutrients acquisition (especially Phosphorus, Copper and Zinc). This symbiotic relationship between fungi and plant, results in an overall improved plant growth PRO-MIX BX MYCORRHIZAE™ is suitable for a wide variety of horticultural plants.
High perlite, peat-based growing medium
High drainage capacity
Designed for water sensitive crops
Ideal for low-light and high humidity growing conditions
Contains MYCORRHIZAE™mycorrhizal inoculum (Glomus intraradices)
Faster drainage cycle versus general purpose, peat-based mixes
Well suited for low-light and high-humidity growing conditions
Reduces overwatering risk
Reduces incidence of water-related problems (root diseases, algae and fungus gnats)
Retains less water for improved leaching of fertilizer salts during crop cycle
MYCORRHIZAE™ improves overall growth of plants and increases yields of flowers/fruits
**Benefits may vary among plant species and cultivars.

MYCORRHIZAL FUNGI: THE BASICS
Mycorrhiza is a term that describes the mutualistic, symbiotic relationship
between fungi and plant roots. Although there are more, the two largest
classifications of mycorrhizal fungi are endomycorrhizae and ectomycorrhizae,
which are characterized by their structures.
ENDO AND ECTO: TWO LETTERS DIFFERENCE, TWO VERY DIFFERENT RESULTS
Endomycorrhizal fungi produce thin filaments (called hyphae) that penetrate the cell walls
of plant roots forming an extension of the plant root system. Endos benefit the majority of
vegetables, floriculture crops, grasses, shrubs, some trees and are most important for
commercial greenhouse growers. Ectomycorrhizal fungi form plant associations without
penetrating root cell walls and form relationships with the majority of conifers, some hardwood
species. Ectos provide no benefits for the majority of greenhouse crops.
PROVEN AND DOCUMENTED RESULTS:
THE ONLY MYCORRHIZAE YOU SHOULD WANT
By far, the greatest amount of independent research data and documented plant benefits are
for Glomus intraradices. This is the genus and species of Endomycorrhizal fungi you will find in
PRO-MIX products. It colonizes and provides the best growth enhancement for the majority of
seed producing and soft tissue plants around the world. Glomus intraradices provides the best
results for greenhouse crops, herbaceous plants and some woody ornamentals.
THE HIGHEST STANDARDS IN PRODUCTION METHODS
At Premier Tech Horticulture, our production methods are unique and the most advanced in the
field. The endomycorrhizal fungi we use are produced in our laboratories in an aseptic culture
assuring you of a pathogens free product. Endomycorrhizal fungi used by most growing media
producers are grown on plant root systems, produced in a pot, harvested and chopped-up
and used as inoculum. This type of culture can include harmful root-disease organisms that
can inoculate your plants. At Premier Tech we have been culturing endomycorrhizae for over
20 years. We produce the purest form of high-quality tech grade mycorrhizal fungi. In fact,
Premier Tech is the largest commercial producer of endomycorrhizal fungi in the world!
