Vitalink BioPac Powder is a concentrated blend of beneficial soil microbes, including 8 species of bacteria and 2 species of fungi. It contains Trichoderma, Bacillus, actinomycetes and lactic acid bacteria species:
>3 x 10⁸ cfu/g (greater than 300 million colony forming units per gram).
These BioPac ingredients colonise the root zone with beneficial microbes to fix nitrogen from the air and make it more readily available to the plant. The microbes also solubilise phosphorus and break down organic matter, such as dead roots, to release valuable trapped nutrients.
With the help of these beneficial microbes the plant’s tolerance to stress is increased and root health, development and function is improved.
BioPac is soluble and suitable for drip irrigation but can be used in all growing substrates.
Soil/Coir/Rockwool – Dissolve 10g powder (one level of supplied spoon) in 10 litres of water and stir well to dilute, then water directly onto growing media – at least 1 litre per 5 litres media.
Recirculating hydro systems – Dissolve 10g powder in 10 litres of water and stir well to dilute, add this into 100 litre nutrient solution. Only repeat dose at complete solution changes.Do I need to keep it in a fridge?
Vitalink recommend this, but as long as your house is reasonably cool it should be fine. Shelf life is about 12 months in normal conditions, 18 monthis if kept it in a fridge. Keep the sachet sealed between uses.
Also, once you have diluted Biopac do not store this liquid for later, use immediately or discard.
