Re: [nafex] Pro-Mix BX (mycorrhizal innoculated)

I've tried the Pro Mix.  In fact, the company sent me bags of all their
products to test.  To tell you the truth, I didn't see any miraculous growth
or anything unusual.  But, then I use mycorrhizae in the powder form and
inoculate plant roots when I put them in the ground.  Agreed, the prices are
high for the bagged stuff.  You can get 8 oz. jar of mycorrhizae for about
$15 and it will inoculate hundreds of plants.  And, as we have discussed
previously on this list, mycorrhizae has to be in contact with the
roots--not just in the area.  Rubbing it with your fingers on to the roots
seems to be the best method.
