I'm no expert so feel free to correct thy thinking

IN my stoner reaserch it was shown to me that the bacteria has a short life span.
Thus one needs to keep applying bacteria to keep the bacteria level up.
Also note that bacteria need bacteria freindly medium and fungi do better in fungi friendly medium and those mediums are not the same.

Short stoner take
Bacteria are some what mobile as bacteria move centameters around to eat and shit
Bacteria are singe individual cell organisms.
Mykos spores grow together to form a interconnected organism that spreads throughout the soil
The bacteria shit
The Mykos grab the shit
IF the Mykos is in contact with roots the shit is passed to the roots and the root say
"Thanks for the shit, Mykos. Here's some sugar for you."
But this exchange only works if Mykos is in touch with roots.
The more roots touched the better it gets
So
Mykos needs root contact for it to be effective.
Just mixing in soil or watering into soil is not efficient.

one would be wasting their Mykos by not applying it in efficient way.
By placing it in a transplant hole the roots must grow through it and the Mykos grows and expands in the medium the Mykos ( fungi) feeds the roots as the roots feed the Mykos BUT the Mykos must be in contact with the roots.
Also, unlike bacteria
The Mykos needs a few weeks to grow
I didn't mean to imply that NONE of the mykos spores will get to the roots when watered in.
A much much lower percent will.
Of course the many mykos manufactures will say to water in cuz it wastes more mykos and then one needs to buy more mykos.
Personally I'd prefer to do what works best for me and the plants I grow
and I'm a cheap one.
And rather not just waste my expensive Mykos
But please do what you feel works best for you.

*******edit*****+ I am just using the word MYKOS (a brand name) cuz I can't spell mellayceium (sp??) :shrug:
Nice thanks for that. I wasn’t trying to correct you I was genuinely asking. That makes sense tho and is why im giving teas a go since im in autopots I only get runoff the first few weeks. Although since I’m only re-inoculating with a cup or so of concentrated mix and get no runoff I guess I’m okay haha

No worries
The longer I farm and live
The more I try to make myself open to corrections :haha:

I've been considering using a auto pot valve.
Are you concerned that using teas may clog the valve???

No I’ve had full strength microbe mix (AN microbe trio and GW) in my res with no clogs but I think I’ll probably too feed my pots with the teas since I don’t have an air stone in my res I don’t want them to die in there. But I do clean my lines every month or few weeks but no problems so far

Your using a lot of the products used when running Nectar...
All those things came in my "sample" kit 2 years ago.
Hate the cost, love the product.
100% agree brother! My plants loved this stuff! I pulled a little over 300 grams of frosty nugs from a single auto. What do you run now @Arthur ? I'm looking to go with Natures living soil on my next run, and using the slf, ez tea, em1, etc once a week.

I'm running the Nectar line in coco, slf 100, photo +, recharge. This run is a test for aphrodites extraction (carbon) and I dropped tritons trawl this round and brought in the kraken. Lots of BK and Herc!

I ran the full sample line and added in only added Aphrodites Extraction. BK is freaking crazy Awesomeness in a bottle! Definitely learned to be easy on it! Yes, make sure you are loaded up with Herc! My plants seemed to have loved it! I got a killer feed schedule for Autos I can share with you.

Being in coco... I don't get the option of a schedule... full strength feed twice a day. Only things that are scheduled are the SLF100 (every other feed) and the microbes once a week.
