Beneficial microbial/fungi product

Hello everyone! I have been using the trio from Advanced Nutrients (Voodoo juice tarantula and piranha), but the price on these being so high I am looking to replace them. I have bought Hydroguard from Botanicare and would like to see what you guys use.

I am in Canada by the way.

They sell it on Amazon, at least in the US.

Amazon canada is very different,and most item on amazon us wont ship to canada. I found Orca liquid but 16oz is 100$ for me in canada. What a bummer most good product ar3 unavaible or very expensive.

I am happy with an’s root trio, for now. Just bought new bottles, actually. I buy the smallest bottles I can; for the 3, it cost me $70 for enough for 5+ grows (more, if it didn’t expire), which is fine with. :grinning:

I’ll try the mammoth one day, though. I almost bought it last year.


How much and when do you use the trio? I am growing in autopots and was about to just stay with AN for these 3 product. Is there really a big difference between Tarantula and Voodoo Juice? Seems like all same bacteria at different concentration?

Oh, no, absolutely a difference. There might be one or two over lapping microbes in voodoo & tarantula, but otherwise they contain a variety of beneficial bacteria, fungus, and other microbes.

I’m in Australia and have just started using mammoth. I got the sample from my local hydro shop. You don’t need much. I think 4.8ml in my 30L reservoir.

I poked the hole in the top of the seal and use the bottle like a dropper. 15 drops per 2.5 gals in a DWC, if I don’t see a difference i’ll bump it up to 25 . says use .06 per gal. I don’t go by exact measurements so much anymore

I use EM1 effective microorganisms. It must be fermented with organic non sulfur blackstrap molassas but once you have a culture going you can keep it going perpetually.
