ExploGrow™ is a bio-fertilizer containing 17 micro-organisms. When applied to the plant, seed or soil, they colonise the interior of the plant and the region of soil that is directly influenced by root secretions and associated soil microorganisms (rhizosphere). Some bacteria are nitrogen-fixing (even atmospheric nitrogen), others are phosphate solubilising. Their activity promotes growth by increasing the supply and/or availability of primary nutrients to the plant. Their specific functions and effects on the soil and plant health functions explain how some of the microbes may enhance the plant's resistance to certain diseases.

ExplogrowTM includes
Pseudomonas oryzihabitans - biological control agents, phosphate solubilisers and plant growth promoting bacteria.
Rhizobium radiobacter - potent phosphate solubilisers
Pseudomonas japonica – Calcium ion binding
Azospirillum humicireducens – Nitrogen fixer
Azobacter vinelandii – Nitrogen fixer
Bacillus cereus – Prevents plant disease
Bacillus licheniformis  – Saprophytic and important in nutrient cycle
Bacillus thuringiensis  – classic insect control
Ensifer numidicus – Atmospheric nitrogen fixing
Ensifer fredii  – Nitrogen fixing
Ensifer meliloti  – reduces stress in drought
Trichoderma virens – Increases root growth and biomass
Trichoderma aureoviridi – Produces enzymes that protect against bad fungi
Trichoderma harzianum –  Kills pathogenic fungi
Trichoderma inhamatum –  Kills pathogenic fungi
Azorhizophillus paspali - Atmospheric nitrogen fixing
Sinorhizobium americanum – Nitrogen fixing

Seed soaking: Soaking in water increases the rate and success of germination. Soak seeds in 1-2ml ExploGrow™ for 20-30 min max.
Soil: Mix 4-8ml of ExploGrow™ bio-fertilizer with 1 liter of water. Apply mixture to each pot plant (10 liter grow bag size) every month, from seedling to start of flowering.
Hydroponics: Use 2-3 ml of ExploGrow™ bio-fertilizer per litre of water or nutrient solution each week throughout growing
Foliar feed: ExploGrow™ can be used as a bio-fertilizer as a foliar feed up until the start flowering. Mix 2-3 ml ExploGrow™ bio-fertilizer per litre of water and thoroughly spray plant. Do not apply ExploGrow™ bio-fertilizer during the flowering
ExploGrow™ improves nutrient uptake, so maxing/overdosing nutrients could have a negative influence on the plant’s growth. We always recommend reducing fertilizers when using ExploGrow™ by 25%
