Benefits of Beneboost

Great for Beneficial Soil Insects:

This product is a blend of all organic seeds, grains and oats specially formulated to provide complete nutrition to your beneficial insects, encourage reproduction and promote expansion and exploration within your containers, greenhouse or grow area.

Rove beetles and Hypoapsis miles are ferocious eaters and thrive in conditions where there is ample food supply, especially when there is not an active soil pest issue that you are targeting.

Great As A Soil Amendment

In addition to being great for your beneficial soil insects, it is
generally great for your soil. Our blend of sprouted barley, corn and lentil provide proteins and enzymes that promote vigorous plant growth.

Barley provides the enzymes phosphatase, chitinase, urease, and amylase which feed the microbes in your soil to improve nutrient uptake and cycling. These 4 enzymes provide high levels of chitinase which is a compound which improves plant immunity and imuno-responses to pathogens and diseases including powdery mildew.

The oats and wheat bran promote mycelium growth on and in your mulch layer as well which helps the soil food web cycle nutrients on the
surface layer, which is why we recommend using it as a the last step in your top dress. This will expedite bio-availibility of nutrients to your plants.

Benefits of Aloe Vera

Benefits of Aloe Vera

Contains a great source of salycylic acid, which aids plants in their systemic immuno-responses against pathogens. (referred to as System Acquired Resistance or SAR) With an SAR the plant has improved resistance to environmental stresses such as drought, cold, heat, excess humidity, heavy metal toxicity, and osmotic stress.

Contains lignins which minimizes stress and allows for easier nutrient and moisture uptake.

Has surfactant characteristics and is a source of saponins.

Reduces plant stress during transplant.

Benefits of Coconut Water

Benefits of Coconut Water

1. Increases nutrient availibility and enhances plant uptake. A study was conducted on mung beans and showed that both number of pods and yield were increased.

2. Contains cytokinin hormones which have been studied and shown to promote divison of cells which triggers plants to grow shoots and roots.
See this study.

3. Contains Gibberellic acid, which helps boost seed germination and increases the speed of root development. See this study.

4. Contains calcium, magnesium and other minerals which provide addtional nutrients and boost to growth.

5. Provides nutritional support to good organisms and bacteria which are vital in the development and growth of plants.

6. Reduces plant shock when transplanting.

7. Can be used as a rooting hormone.

Storage

We recommend
applying living soil bio-diversity packs immediately upon receipt for
best results, but they can be stored in a warm (65-75 degree) and dark
environment upon receipt, prior to application. They can be stored up to
a week with minimal population affect in the container they are shipped
in. The media inside the container must be kept moist if being stored
in extreme dry conditions.

 

MI Beneficials makes no guarantee that storage will keep bugs alive, thus we do recommend immediate application.

Living soil bio-diversity packs are shipped in a vermicompost/coco mix which suits as an ideal habitat for shipping/storage.
