What is Mammoth P
Mammoth P is a unique combination of powerful microbial life forms, purposefully selected and designed for both soil and hydroponics systems. As the first product produced by Growcentia, a team of three Colorado State University PhD soil microbiologists who endeavour to improve soil health and promote sustainable agriculture. Mammoth P maximises the health of soil or growing media to optimise plant health and yield. Whilst maintaining high quality, it’s possible to see a 16% increase in yield and accelerated resin production. The increased levels of Phosphorus keep internodes shorter and focus on flower production, this in turn helps protect the rhizosphere, beating harmful pathogens.
How It Works
The benefits of Phosphorus are widely known. This key component is required for healthy growth in plants throughout all stages of grow and bloom phases. Mammoth P unlocks any Phosphate that has been bound up with minerals, increasing the bio availability. The increase in Phosphorus leads to an increase in every part of the plant’s life, whether it be rooting cuttings or in bloom.
Mammoth P also works incredibly well in coco media. Locking out Phosphorus is common with Coco because it releases potassium and absorbs calcium. So any potentially lost Phosphorus is unlocked. Researchers studied how microbes increase crop yields and they discovered four microbes they believe boost yields:
- Pseudomonas putida
- Comamonas testosteroni
- Citrobacter freundii
- Enterobacter cloacae
These microbes have the ability to unlock Phosphorus in the soil. Fertilizers are added to soils and other media and this can lead to up to 70% of Phosphorus being unavailable to plants due to transformations and chemical binding. Mammoth P solves this problem, transforming P back into available forms, maximising nutrient absorption and increased yield.
How to use Mammoth P
Mammoth P is available in 120ml, 250ml, 500ml & 1L bottles. The Mammoth P scientists recommend use during all stages of the growing and blooming phases to increase boost vegetative growth, increase floral production and nutrient uptake in the plants’ cycle.
Mammoth P have produced a highly concentrated blend of microbes, meaning a little goes a very long way. In hydroponic environments, it can be applied at a rate as little as 0.16ml per litre! You may notice that with the increased availability of nutrients Mammoth P generates, you may need to slightly reduce your usual EC rates, saving you further money on the otherwise wasted nutrient. It is recommended to change your nutrient solution every 7-10 days.
In soil applications, its application rate varies slightly throughout the life cycle of the plant. Following the Mammoth P feed chart of the product, you increase the concentration slowly up to the maximum rates at peak flowering times, where it is then tapered back down during the flush period. The most you will ever use at one time is 1ml/L, making a highly cost-effective microbial additive. Mammoth P has a near neutral pH range and as such will not interfere with your usual nutrient regiment.
