It is found around the roots and assists the plant in absorbing more nutrients and water, while the plant helps out the mycorrhizal fungi by it providing with carbohydrate food. Farmers and botanist alike, take great interest in mycorrhizal fungi because it can improve the production of food crops, and is also very important to everyday gardeners who want to increase the beauty of their gardens and protect them from pest and disease that can damage the plants roots.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Remove the plant that you wish to use for the growing the mycorrhizal fungi from its container or location in your garden. Use caution when removing the plant as not to damage the roots.

  2. 2

    Hold or place the plant over the container or hole where it will be replanted and dust one to two tablespoons of the mycorrhizal fungi root builder onto its roots. The excess root builder that does not stick to the roots will fall into the container or hole, providing a little extra for the plant. There is no need to sprinkle extra root builder directly into the hole or container.

  3. 3

    Place the plant back into the original container or hole, and water. The fungus will start to grow naturally, and your plant will begin to better absorb water and nutrients, thus giving you a larger, healthier plant.
