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 intraradices - 134 spores per gram

Kelp4Less Endo Mycorrhizal: Glomus intraradices, Glomus mosseae, Glomus aggregatum, Glomus etunicatum. Did you ever get a spore count from them? They aren't very good at providing details on some of their products.

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 11:08 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.
