Ecothrive Biosys is a powerful microbial product that contains a uniquely formulated blend of beneficial microbes and natural plant growth stimulants. This extremely easy-to-use blend contains complex ingredients that work on a number of levels. It is widely used to create a ‘microbe tea,’ when added to water. The microbes will work in harmony with your plants to create perfect plant health, growth rate and abundant yields.
How it works
The blend contains multiple strains of fungi, bacillus, nitrogen fixing bacteria, pseudomonas and Trichoderma that help to breakdown organic matter, providing your plants with easily absorbable food in the process. These microbes help with disease prevention (such as Pythium), improve root function, increase nutrient and water availability and improve plant growth. Biosys alco contains humic and fulvic acids, enzymes, proteins, carbohydrates and seaweed extracts. These Biological catalysts facilitate the constant growth of beneficial bacteria and fungi.
Biosys will stimulate the rooting of cuttings and promote healthy plant development, enriching the rhizosphere with a naturally enhanced balance of micro-organisms that improve your plants growth and continued uptake of water and nutrients. This enables plants to recover quickly and efficiently from stress.
There are 8 species of Endo Mycorrhizae in Biosys which help improve the plants access to available water in the growing media and improve the uptake of certain nutrients, most importantly phosphorus. Mycorrhizal fungi achieve this through a clever relationship; soon after germinating near a root, the mycorrhizal fungi invade the root tissue and establish exchange sites within the root cells known as arbuscules. These enlarged internal arbuscules allow the plant and fungi to interact, enabling the plant to feed the fungi sugars (manufacture in the leaves and translocated to the roots), and in return the fungi gathers water and nutrients through its fungal network that it spreads throughout the growing media, and transports them directly to the plant.
One aspect of the mycorrhizal relationship that is often overlooked, is the role of bacterial organisms that are now referred to as ‘mycorrhizae helper bacteria’. In Biosys we include some bacillus species and a nitrogen fixing bacteria called Azospirillum that are known to help the establishment and ongoing function of mycorrhizae.
The 8 species of Bacillus in Biosys are included not just for their properties in assisting mycorrhizae, but also for inhibiting the growth of potential pathogens, promoting root growth, solubilisation of locked up minerals and organic matter degradation for conversion to nutrition.
Biosys also contains another species of nitrogen fixing bacteria called Azotobacter, as well as Azospirillum. Both these micro-organisms live close to the root surface and take nitrogen from the air and turn it into a form the plants can use. These allow growers the opportunity to reduce their Nitrogen inputs into their growing systems.
There are also 2 species of Pseudomonas that help with degradation of complex organic matter and help with pathogen control. Some of the Bacillus, Pseudomonas and Nitrogen fixers are also classed as plant growth promoting rhizobacteria, now commonly abbreviated to PGPR’s. These clever organisms have evolved to produce hormone substances such as cytokinins and auxins that the plant can use to promote certain growth functions such as root development.
Finally, there are also 2 species of Trichoderma within this potent blend. These Trichoderma are beneficial fungi that are specially adapted to degrade other fungi, especially pathogens. Trichoderma are free living organisms that are great to have around the root zone for disease prevention as well as degrading organic matter.
How to use Ecothrive Biosys
We recommend using Ecothrive Neutralise with Biosys to nullify any chlorine\chloramine in your tap water. As this will inhibit the microbes from doing their job. You can use Biosys outdoors on open soil as well as indoors, with potting soil, coco, hydroponic growing media and also hydroponic systems with little or no growing media.
Biosys is available in 10g, 50g & 250g sachets or tubs and is ideally applied during propagation of seedlings or cuttings, with subsequent applications every 1-2 weeks indoors, and every 4 weeks outdoors. Biosys has a unique action that quickly populates the rhizosphere with a diversity of natural microorganisms to enable your plants to thrive.

great to help your grow
I’m no soil wiz kid so I couldn’t tell you too much but I have seen an improvement in my plants after adding this, definitely smells like it would be good for plants....
