    Mycorrhizal and Vegetables

    A promotional mini-"magazine" arrived today from my local garden center. It included a small article on growing herbs and leafy vegetables indoors year round. At the bottom of the page was a picture of some lighting units and fertilizers, but what caught my eye was a bottle of Mycorrhiza. So being curious, and having some Mycorrhiza on hand I did some searching. Informal testing seems to show that plants, including vegetables grow larger and are more disease resistant when Mycorrhiza innoculents are added to their soil.

    Now I have do idea if what I have are even the correct species for veggies, but I am going to give it a try.

    Some plants benefit from Mycorrhizal associations, others see no change, and there are a few that feel detriment when in association; this depends also on the kind of fungus or blend of fungal species present, so research on individual plant species may be wise.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
