Majin started grow question 4 years ago
I use azos and mykos during my transplants.
My question is
Wince at some point I add liquid notes rather than growing organically
Am I killing off my microbes? Should i just stop using the mychrizae ?
I'm just getting into organic growing

Hello @Majin ! There are liquid nutrients that are organic too despite what some people say ( they are just people who don't understand what these organic liquid nutrients are and how they are made, so they demonize them and calling them bad, toxic, not true organic and stuff ) and no liquid nutrients will not kill the beneficial microbes. These microbes to die they need repeatedly high doses of synthetic fertilizers. The mycorrhiza should be used from day 1 because you want the fungus's to find a sterile root system so they can colonize it easily without competition. Once the mycorrhiza is established you don't have to use it again. Also for the first 2-3 weeks it is better to not use any microbe products because the contain trichoderma harzianum. This kind of trichoderma attackes at fungus spores unless the product of mycorrhiza that you are using it has propagules instead of spores ( but have in mind that products with spores are always better than propagules ). Happy growing ! :facepunch:

No liquid nutes will kill your micro nutrients you run more a risk of killing your plant because the nutrient value is too high then killing the micros in your soil . Its always good to use mykes because it promotes increase in root uptake as well as helps them develop quicker . But over all your doing well keep up the good work and you will be rewarded justly for it :) I would only advise that your start slowly when adding liquid nutrients as they are very strong always start with 1/4 of the recomended dose and work you way up as the plants grow older . I hope this information is helpful ! -Happy Growing!

At some point the soil will start to become depleted of nutes and the lower leaves of your plant will show deficiencies; that's the moment for you to start feeding, unless of course you transplant into a bigger pot. As long as you use organic nutes your micro biology will be fine. Mycorrhizae should be used once when planting or transplanting
