Shogun Zenzym is an enzyme product which helps to breakdown dead root matter and unwanted deposits, upcycling them into nutritious food for your plants. A goal for experienced growers is to recycle their growing media, with Zenzym’s enzymatic formula it allows the reuse of media such as coir fibre through natural enzymes breaking down bacteria that has been left behind.
How It Works
This media recycling blend of enzymes consists of cellulase, xylanase, pectinase and glucanase which facilitates the breakdown of dead root material. When grow media is used for a full-length cycle, it will normally always be peppered with debris and old plant matter disregarded by the previous harvest. Zenzym strips away the rigid outer layer of dead roots so they can be completely broken down. It does this by breaking the 1.4-beta linkages in glucan molecules in a process called hydrolysis. The broken-down roots in turn become nutrients for your plants to supplement their normal feeding routine. In turn the root zone becomes healthier, more robust and less vulnerable to infections, with more space for new root growth. If you use coco, soil or clay pebbles it rejuvenates and revitalises it. Finally, Zenzym breaks down biofilm, so if you use a dripper system this will prevent blockages.
How to use Shogun Zenzym
Shogun Zenzym is available in 250ml, 1L & 5L bottles. The Shogun Feed Chart recommends use during the vegetative phase & flowering stage to facilitate reinvigoration of growing media and provide up-cycling of nutrients in the plants’ cycle.
Zenzym is suitable for all types of growing media and is suited for growers that use active hydroponics or fertigation systems. Use alongside your regular nutrients. This is a bio-stimulant and is not a complete feed. For root feeding add at a rate of 2.5ml/L to your watering can or reservoir and start applying as soon as you have planted out and throughout until harvest.
