10-days (Closeup)Imagine what this fungi is doing to help convert organic matter into a form for your plants down in the soil.
10-days to beneficial fungiIt only took us 10-days to grow the beneficial fungi in our pellets. We just added water. We even used tap water with chlorine and chloramine. To survive pasteurization and city water shows the will of this fungus.
Beneficial Fungi - Petri DishIs your fertilizer alive?
Check out the beneficial white fungus growing on the Be-1 pellets in these glass dishes.
*Do* try this trick at home!
Add a few pellets to any dish and just enough tap water for pellets to absorb. After a few days, the pellets come to life, harnessing organic matter in pellets and air and decaying it, transforming nutrients into plant-available forms.
We have been testing affects of humidity on the fungi. We put a glass lid on the dish closest to the camera and the others we left open. All dishes grew fungi but there is certainly a difference in speed of growth in the dish with the lid left on. We believe the lid is helping contain moisture and keeping the pellets hydrated, which promotes the fungal growth. This is one reason we suggest scratching the pellets into the surface of the soil to keep the pellets from drying out.
