You see how beneficial microbes products are good for your garden, but yes it’s confusing and frustrating when you go to a hydroponics store and see beneficial microbes formulas made by different manufacturers. Your obvious question is which of these is going to give me the biggest bang for my buck.
To answer your question, understand there are two very distinct processes manufacturers can choose from when they want to offer you microbes products.
The most common process is when a hydroponics company calculates that it can save on production costs by hiring a third-party company to bulk produce/bulk combine microbes without testing them for specific plant appropriateness or microbial compatibility. And in the process they forfeit supervision of manufacturing and quality control.
Not only that, but their process includes a generic view of microbes. For example, when someone talks about the microbe “Bacillus subtilis,” that strain name is really just the tip of the iceberg… it’s exactly like saying “General Motors” to describe a car, and you have no idea if it’s a Pontiac or a Chevy.
And if it’s a Chevy, it could be either a Malibu or Corvette. So if you’re lucky, you got the Corvette – but you’re still left guessing if your Corvette has the 300 hp motor or if it’s a ZR1 Corvette with the 620 horsepower motor! That’s how much difference there is between individual types of “Bacillus subtilis” microbes.
Obviously we absolutely make sure Voodoo Juice microbes are always the ZR1 Corvette with 620 horsepower motor, not the Chevy Malibu!
Here’s how we do it…
It’s a known fact that specific beneficial microbes work better with certain plants than others. That’s why we put so much time and money into our breeding program. We’re driven to find the needle in the haystack of microbes that work absolutely the best for the plants you grow.
Our scientists demand that we buy them all the expensive, precision equipment needed to identify each microbial strain’s special characteristics and compatibility with each other that make them “SuperStrains.” That’s why our microbes are also extremely fast-replicating so they quickly colonize root zones for rapid results (Yes, we test for fast versus slow replicating microbes).
Voodoo Juice is NOT outsourced. We’re the only hydroponics nutrient company in the world manufacturing all our microbial products ourselves with a full-time Ph.D. microbiologist personally supervising all aspects of production at all times. (The same is true for our Piranha and Tarantula root zone products)
Each microbe strain is individually bred (not in a bunch of vats or tubs) in a purpose-built 10,000 liter breeding reactor. This is a very critical, time consuming step, but it’s necessary because different strains of beneficial microbes breed at different rates and we have to ensure total uniformity and maximum colony forming units (CFU’s). After breeding, the microbes are taken to the evaporation tower and dried, and then all eight strains in Voodoo Juice are carefully recombined.
To ensure Voodoo Juice has very long shelf life and superior viability, Voodoo’s microbes are put into hibernation with an “antagonist” compound that keeps the microbes dormant until you mix Voodoo Juice into a nutrient reservoir and the antagonist is diluted.
The bottom line is you procure Voodoo Juice and feed your roots to get more vigorous plants and mega-potent flowers. This is a basic but important step you can easily take today to upgrade the nutrient health and productivity of your garden right away.
FAQ’s – Frequently Asked Questions
Will Voodoo Juice Make My Roots Too Big?
You’ll see maximum root growth when you use Voodoo Juice, allowing you to make more efficient use of the root zone so you get maximum harvests.
If I Use Voodoo Juice, Why Would I Use Your Tarantula Beneficial Microbes And Your Piranha Beneficial Fungi Formulas Too?
Each of these three products contains unique beneficial microbes that contribute to the nutrient healthiest root zone so your plants grow their best. The microbes in these three products combine to form a symbiosis with your roots and each other to provide even more root enhancement.
Will Your Previous Version Of Voodoo Juice Work With Your New Version?
Yes, our previous Voodoo Juice works well in all types of gardens and systems, and is compatible with our stronger new & improved version of Voodoo Juice. Always store our beneficial microbes formulas in a cool, dark place to extend shelf life.
Is Voodoo Juice Compatible With An All-organic Fertilizer Program?
Yes, Voodoo Juice, Tarantula and Piranha are organic supplements that work well in all-organic gardening as well as all other types of gardening.
