We often refer to our approach as following nature’s own design when it comes to energizing plant life and the soils they grow in. The active, interdependent relationship between plants, Mycorrhizal fungi and beneficial bacteria on the forest floor is our inspiration and goal.
So when you see Soluble Sea Kelp as an ingredient in our products, right alongside Trichoderma fungi and beneficial bacteria, you might wonder what’s so “natural” about that connection.
Bounty of the Sea
Sea kelp may not be found naturally on the forest floor, but it is an effective means to an end — in multiple ways. First, it is a source of vitamins and micronutrients all by itself. Among them are natural growth hormones that foster cell division and substances that promote photosynthesis. It’s about growth on the outside and health from within.
Second, the enzymes found in sea kelp help to break down compost in the soil, improving soil conditions synergistically with the same activities being performed by the other microbes we are introducing to the root zone. That’s where the term soluble comes in. If nutrients are available to the plant, they don’t do it any good.
And speaking of the plant, sea kelp has a sort of dilating effect on the root system, improving nutrient uptake for a well-fed and healthy plant. Alone, sea kelp is helpful; but in combination with our other active biologicals, the effects are more potent still.
No Stranger Danger Here
Soluble sea kelp is not new to organic gardening, but it is seeing a resurgence as its benefits become better known. So add some surf to your soil as part of an energetic mix!
A plant from shallow waters may be just what your land plants need to thrive.
