    I used some about 18 months ago as a trial. The neps (sangs) seemed to actually lose ground and wilt within a few days of the application. They eventually revived but I haven't tried it since.

    The Neps regularly get treated with Tricho along with all of the other plants in my collection.
    All the best,

    To someone who was this very day thinking about trying it in his collection, this is a very disturbing report to encounter. Can you describe the method of application and the exact product you used, please?

    I'll as you as well, Ron: describe your technique for application, and the specific product used. Thanks!

    I've heard of people using a product that may contain some trichoderma, but it isn't the same concentrated, cold-tolerant strain that I, and other members of this forum, use.

    With regards to the Trichoderma atroviride from AmPac Biotech, I use it monthly on all of my plants, save a few species of Drosera. Just pour it into the soil as though you were watering the plants; let plants soak in it during any kind of potting process. For me, it has become more of a necessity than anything.
