    Trichoderma source?

    So I am thinking of buying a product called Botanicare, a combination of trichoderma and endomychorrizal fungi from an online source. Anyone have experience with this product? I am wanting to use itbon Heliamphora and Sarracenia.

    I am also thinking about buying a product from a popular online auction site. It is said to contain Trichoderma konigii and harzianum.

    Thoughts on either? Both are packaged by the ounce and sell for around $10 shipped for that portion. Fair? How far would that amount go?

    I use a similar product called Great White with those same Trichoderma species. A little bit goes a long way.

    I can attest that Great White is a great product.

    Good to know. Thanks!

    What method do you use to mix and apply the product you use? Also, to what plants do you apply it?

    I just mix the product as directed and generously water the pots to saturation. I use it monthly on all my Nepenthes and Heliamphora.

    Joseph Clemens reports good results with the product RootShield

    Another popular product is from AmPac Inc.
    http://www.ampacbiotech.net/

    Please be sure to read all warnings on the literature for these products. For instance the AmPac website cautions against the use of their product if there is an active fungal infection.

    It is good to see that there is a wide selection from which to choose. As far as reapplying the product: it shouldn't ever be necessary, right? Until repotting time or unforeseen circumstances occur, of course.

    That is also interesting about the active infection warning, too. I could see how that could cause problems.
