Healthy soils require diverse microbial activity to break down organic matter and fertiliser inputs to promote a healthy environment for plants. EM is a certified organic, microbial inoculant that provides a broad spectrum of microorganisms, enzymes, vitamins, and various organic acids which are all essential components for healthy soils and plants. They will support the growth of other important components including mycorrhizae, earthworms, and insects already in your soil.

Orchids growing in their natural habitat benefit from the interactions of these naturally occurring microbial populations interactions and secretions.

 

There are several benefits to had from the regular application of EM1 Garden to pot grown plants:

  • Suppress harmful pathogens and encourage the proliferation of beneficial microbes.
  • Improving root structures and helps create better soil structures.
  • Improve organic  matter breakdown.
  • It populates the growing media with live microorganisms which are typically absent from pot cultured plants and may help improve the “health” of the root zone.
  • Some of the microbes may also populate the plant, i.e. roots. This will enhance the movement of nutrients from the potting media to the plant, i.e. transferring them directly into the plants.
  • They can convert unavailable nutrients into usable compounds.
  • They can also boost the plants natural defence capabilities by preying directly on harmful pathogens and secreting antibiotics that may contribute to quelling future infections.
  • They will support the growth of other important components including mycorrhizae.
  • Some of the microbes will release various growth hormones which may stimulate addition plant growth or improved flower production.
