You got your new Lively Root plant home and unboxed but don't have anything to feed it, protect it from critters, or treat those nasty pests! Don't fear. Lively Root is here! We are introducing a new line of excellent, organic products we are excited about. We wanted you to be the first to know about them, so we're sharing the love with your fine, leafed friends too.
This organic plant food concentrate is comparable to compost tea made from recycled supermarket food waste instead of going to a landfill, strengthening greener, healthier leaves, blooms, and roots for indoor gardening and plants. It's also making the soil healthy, which is where all the life begins for the plant! And you won't have to hold your nose while using it...because it is infused with rosemary oil for aromatherapy and antioxidant benefits. You can be sure, this product has no synthetics and is not harming the environment or overdosing your plant on steroid fertilizers that ultimately harm the environment.
Mix 2 oz of the concentrate with 32 oz of filtered water or 8 oz. concentrate in 1 gallon of water. It is a mild fertilizer, so you can apply it directly to the soil every 10-14 days.
Boosts immunity and prevents plant disease. It's like a vitamin for your plants to keep them healthy and a protectant against fungal infections. Use this concentrate on your outdoor plants, including veggies, roses, fruits, berries, nuts, flowers, foliage, ornamental trees, and shrubs.
And as a side note, you can use it in the soil when transplanting, or in your plant mixes as a rooting compound, or in hydroponics to get your plants off to a good start!
If you live in a rainy, damp area of the country, you can use it for black spot on your roses and hydrangeas or protect against powdery mildew, botrytis, white mold, leaf spot, rust, and more on other plants!
Application of Arbor's Organic Bio Protectant:
To make it the most convenient, add this protectant to your built-in watering schedule.
- Mix: 0.25 oz Arber concentrate with 32 oz water or 1 oz - 2.5 oz concentrate with 1 Gallon of water
- You'll want to apply this directly to the soil or apply to leaves as a foliar spray. Apply one application every 10-14 days for wellness and every 5-7 days for disease control.
- If you choose to use it on indoor plants, be aware that it can stain surfaces or skin, so use it as a soil drench, wear gloves, and apply in a sink where stain can be removed or captured.
- You can also mix this with your bio-insecticide, just not the plant food since it has a different dilution rate.
Arber's Bio Protectant is produced from a species of weed called Giant knotweed. Knotweed is a potent and very invasive plant but is rectifying its bad reputation by taking extract and formulating it for something good. In other words, the folks at Arbor are recycling it into a functional product that will benefit other plants from diseases.
When sprayed on plants, extract of Reynoutria sachalinensis (giant knotweed) induces the plants to initiate an innate defense system that inhibits the growth of fungi, such as powdery mildew and gray mold.
And bonus, this formula isn't harmful to humans, beneficials, or the environment. It also reduces the use of more potent and toxic products that are harmful. So, yeah, for the planet and us humans, right!?
Arber's organic bio insecticide concentrate prevents typical leaf, floral, and soil bugs like mites, thrips, aphids, mealy bugs, scale and whiteflies, and many other creepy crawlies. Ewww. For the best results, mix this concentrate into the water as directed and spray this mixture on the plant if pests species are present and before there is visible damage. It will target the exoskeletal structures and interfere with the molting process when the pest ingests it.
When spraying, pick a day the wind isn't blowing or in the early morning to avoid spray drift. You can apply this with a pressurized hand-held sprayer or a spray bottle. You can also use this as a soil drench to attack soil-dwelling pests as directed on the back label. One application every 10-14 days for wellness and every 5-7 days for major disease control.
It doesn't need to be applied as often and attacks a broader spectrum of insects compared to other bioinsecticides.
- Mix: 0.25 oz Arber concentrate with 32oz. water or 1 oz - 2.5 oz concentrate with 1 Gallon of water
