Radiating threads are mycorrhizal fungi that act as extensions of the plant root system to absorb nutrients.

MycoBoost Usage Instructions
MycoBoost is a combination of beneficial fungus in a concentrated powder form. MycoBoost blends well with other powder products or seed. It's perfect for hydromulching applications and improving germination and cover on tough sites.
MycoBoost can be broadcast, worked into seed beds, placed under cuttings, blended into potting soil, or sprinkled near roots at transplant time. When applying MycoBoost for any plant types the goal is to have MycoBoost come in contact with the plant's roots.
As a watering solution for general use on trees, shrubs, flowers, fruit and vegetables: Mix at least 2 tablespoons. of MycoBoost per gallon of water to make a healthy compost tea. You can use a higher ratio if desired, especially with problem plants. Higher amounts will not harm plants. Mix well and keep well mixed while watering. 1 lb. of MycoBoost makes 50 gallons of watering solution. Apply several times throughout the growing season.
For Lawns/Turf: Apply 1 lb. (2 cups) per 4,000 square feet. Use dry in a lawn spreader or mix with water for spray applications. Water thoroughly after dry applications. You shoud apply MycoBoost several times throughout the first growing season until healthy levels mycorrhizae are established.
Mix with Planting Soil: MycoBoost can be mixed into potting soil when filling planters, pots and trays. Use ¼ to ¾ pounds (½ -1½ cups) per cubic yard.
For Indoor or Outdoor Potted plants: Mix 1-2 tsp. in each pot at potting time.
Make a Compost Tea: MycoBoost can be mixed in at a rate of 1.5 oz of dry MycoBoost per 5 gallons of water.
As a Seed Coat: Use 1-2 lbs per acre. Mix dry or use as a solution with enough seeds for 1 acre of coverage.
Transplanting: Touch damp roots to Mycoboost so a small amount sticks to the roots or sprinkle ¼ tsp into each planting hole. You can use the compost tea as root dip during transplanting. Simply spray or mist the root system thoroughly before planting or dip the roots in the compost tea.
When Transplanting Trees: Mix ½ oz. (3 teaspoons) of Mycoboost with water per inch of tree trunk diameter (stem caliper).
Commercial Applications: MycoBoost can be hydro-mulched, banded in rows or side dressed before or during planting. Use 10 lbs per acre.
Should I use fertilizer with MycoBoost
Absolutely, but you should use less fertilizer. If you only use a fertilizer alone, particularly fertilizers with high levels of nutrients, you can push top growth at the expense of root development, making plants vulnerable to stress. Frequent, high levels of fertilizer produce an unbalanced and often unsustainable shoot-to-root ratio. Using MycoBoost improves feeder-root production and your plants will use added fertilizer more effectively, so you can use less fertilizer. Algoflash is the perfect fertilizer for use with MycoBoost. Algoflash is a balanced, non-burning fertilizer that can be added with each watering.
