Hey Future Fam,
Long time reader/follower and new to platform interaction. As a man of science I respect this forum as a place of knowledge and prospects for the future. I have held off on making this post to make sure I had adequate documentation to present.
That being said I am happy to hopefully make a splash. We do live liquid culture microbes (beneficial bacteria and fungi). I would like to say for soil but the implications are universal. It began with an old timer in West Texas looking for a natural solution for consuming oil spills and other organic matter via bioremediation. He came across microbes. The first organisms on the planet. The beginning of symbiosis. They have cared for this planet since the beginning of time and are what people are referring to when they say “live soil”.
The medium whether it be soil, coco, hydro, or aqua rely on these microbes and the diversity they bring to the soil and even the body (human body). We just put back what was supposed to be there in the first place and make overall efficiency and well being go through the roof.
EC tests show the consumption of nutes goes up astronomically. And what can be considered anecdotal evidence such as 40% yield increases because every single plant will be so different it will be a varying factor. However, one truth remains- biodiversity is king- we have traveled the planet to harvest the most efficient microbes for our soil. Corona Report (DNA Sequencing shown below). But the key is the consortium being self sustaining, yes it has the largest variety but the true key is the circle of life. As it should be. Hunters, foragers, decomposers. Microbes left without all of the other organisms they rely on still fall short. These statements hold true for everything from the golf courses I work with, grows of any kind hydro, coco, aqua etc, becasue they are universal truths.
Because this is new to the forum I will not bore you with picture documentation that can be easily doctored or more anecdotal nonsense on how my microbe consortium will quite surely change everything, I offer a challenge. I will supply my microbes for free for a number of members to run a trial. Then allow their results to speak for the product through other forum goers. I truly can’t wait to work with you all.
Ok here is a touch of anecdotal nonsense. Same age, same strain, same everything except the plants on the right received 1oz/ gallon of microbes. (Remember they cannot be over or underdone as the colony will self correct for efficiency)
And one more from a golf course I do work at. This is 2 days after over-seed and just shows the increase in germination. For me it makes my heart swell up but I understand picture documentation doesn’t carry weight.
That is all
Cheers and Happy Planting all!
