Fresh from the United States, Xtreme Gardening’s Azos is a product of Reforestation Technologies International (RTI), one of the oldest and most renowned producers of biologically-inspired plant products.
First isolated in the Amazon Rainforest, Azos (Azospirillum Brasilense XOH) is a beneficial nitrogen-fixing bacteria that stimulates and boosts growth and root development. Xtreme Gardening have carefully cultured Azos into an aggressive, fast-acting beneficial microbe.
Azos is an extremely powerful nitrogen-fixing bacterium designed for use during the vegetative stage of plant development. It takes nitrogen straight out of the atmosphere and makes it available to plants, allowing them to get up to 70% of the nitrogen they need direct from the air around them.
Azos primarily works by catalysing the release of Idole-3 Acetic Acid and other natural plant hormones that are known to play a major role in promoting healthy plant growth. Using Azos on your plants will help drive chlorophyll production, encourage root development, and boost growth. In fact, it has helped break seven world records for plant growth and is the driving force behind a one-tonne pumpkin.
As Azos stimulates natural root development as well as boosting vegetative growth, it can effectively be used as a cloning agent for cuttings, quickly rooting plants in roughly a week. Watch the video (on the left under images) for a demonstration of how to clone plants using Azos.
Overall, Azos will work with your plants to:
- Extract nitrogen from the air and make it available to your plants
- Speed up root development and extend root system
- Boosts root growth by up to 300%
- Increase cell wall strength and resistance to pests and disease
- Increase rate of photosynthesis and overall biomass
Azos can be used in soil and hydroponics systems.
Azos has very good feedback from growers as an effective, natural growth promoter and it looks set to give Clonex a run for its money when it comes to rooting cuttings. If you want a product that boosts growth using the power of nature and beneficial bacteria then we recommend giving Azos a go.
