    The AmPac directions say to reapply periodically. A predator could wipe out its food sources.

    Pardon my ignorance, but what is the benefit of Trichoderma? My own experiences growing mushrooms have taught that Trich is the devil.

    A negative association with Trich in terms of mushroom culture is to be expected, I'd imagine. Evidently Trich is a predatory fungus that destroys other fungi. Obviously beneficial for plants that are sensitive to fungal attack and a problem when raising mushrooms.

    Products like Great White mentioned above also contain mycorrhizal fungi and beneficial bacteria to aid root development. I thought Sarrraciniacae -- and all carnivorous plants for that matter -- were non-mycorrhizal though.

    Ok that makes sense. I think these products might have some benefits for some of the touchier terrestrial orchids which rely heavily on an association with mycorrhizal fungi to obtain nutrients.

    I don't suppose similar products are available at Lowes, Home Depot, or Orchard Supply Hardware? Searches for "trichoderma" on their websites show no results.

    You can find some of these in hydroponics stores. AmPac only sells direct I believe. Check their website for contact info or contact TF member True424.

    Try a Google search on the product name, find their website and check where to buy, but the search will turn up many places that sell the product.
