TrikoLogic S - Trichoderma for Warm Temperatures by Terra Aquatica
Roots are the gardener's cause for concern. In the soil, they are difficult to access, but in a hydroponic system, they are easily accessible, albeit comparatively unprotected from pathogens. Considering how much effort the gardener puts into building a healthy root mass, it is worth protecting this valuable achievement from Pythium, Fusarium, Verticillium, and other fungi and bacteria that can cause devastating damage in hydroponic systems, especially during heat when mold thrives as a surface pathogen and can become a problem overnight.
Products touted as ideal solutions in the market – whether UV lamps or fungicides from the garden market – have significant drawbacks: some are expensive, impractical, and of questionable effectiveness, while others are toxic and harmful to health.
Fortunately, with TrikoLogic S, there is a proven remedy that brings neither disadvantages nor risks.
To ensure the best possible root protection, we have tested all currently used beneficial strains and isolated only those with the fastest and most efficient effects. Too many different strains would compete with each other when colonizing the plant parts to be protected and would be ineffective with fast-growing species.
TrikoLogic S contains a balanced mixture of beneficial microorganisms that immediately go to work after application, covering the entire root mass with a protective layer that prevents the growth, spread, and survival of pathogenic fungi. TrikoLogic S is the safest way for you to protect your plants' roots from diseases. And because TrikoLogic S contains the same high-quality Trichoderma strains as TrikoLogic, it also breaks down unwanted organic residues floating in the nutrient solution, which pose a health risk to the roots, and converts them into plant-available minerals.
Terra Aquatica TrikoLogic S complies with the requirements of the European Directive 2008/113/EC on microorganisms as active substances.
Application of TrikoLogic S
TrikoLogic S is a natural, 100% organic root protection agent that is best used preventively. Like all aerobic organisms, the microorganisms contained in TrikoLogic S are healthier and more efficient the more oxygen they receive and the less pH, temperature, and moisture fluctuate.
- For seedlings, young and mature plants: Add 1g of TrikoLogic S to 15-20 liters of water or nutrient solution every 6 to 8 weeks during seeding and as an addition to water/fertilizer.
- For mature plants in soil or coco coir: Add 10g of TrikoLogic S to 150-200 liters of water or nutrient solution every 6 to 8 weeks. Simply add it to the irrigation/fertilization system or directly water the substrate with it.
- For hydroponic systems with free-floating roots or bioponics: For young plants with small root masses, TrikoLogic S requires a base for the colonization and proliferation of microorganisms. Use a commercially available biofilter or place a 3-5L plastic mesh pot filled with 80% expanded clay and 20% coco coir in the water running into the tank, for example, under the return line of our GrowStream systems.
- All fertilizers and substrates from Terra Aquatica, hydroponic systems, and outdoor gardens.
- Pro Organic and other organic fertilizers from Terra Aquatica are particularly effective when combined with TrikoLogic® S.
