Your media stays moist. But a high air content is perfect for microbial activity & root growth. Water little and often for optimum microbial activity.
No Animal By-Products
No slaughterhouse by-products are used for nutrition! Eco-Life only uses clean sourced natural inputs.
Bursting With Biology
The millions of microbes unlock the nutrition from the raw materials in Eco-Life.
Eco-Friendly Production Process
It’s blended and bagged in the UK. All inputs are from sustainable sources that have been investigated to origin and approved.
How It Works
Plants have evolved to work with microbes in the soil.
Plants feed microbes. Microbes unlock nutrients & water for plants. It’s a symbiotic relationship. Microbes have a myriad of other functions, too. They help prevent pathogens, enhance uptake and generally keep the rootzone healthy.
Eco-Life is alive with these microbes! And it’s pre-loaded with the nutrients plants need from seed to harvest.
A mix of long, medium & short release ingredients are used, which maximise plant growth, health & immunity.
There’s no need to add extra nutrients. Since you’re not feeding, there’s nothing to flush. Plants stop feeding and growth slows naturally at harvest. Just keep your media moist with a good quality water. This is the real, original way to grow organically.
It contains more than 60 trace elements that plants need. It’s a great source of plant growth hormones; indoles for root development; gibberellins for nutrient mobility.
It adds calcium & sulphur for aroma & flavour. It also improves water penetration & reduces water logging.
These add extra microbes, N, P & K. Warm castings come from an outdoor worm farm. Here worms are fed on animal manure & fruit pulp.
Basalt (Volcanic Rock Dust) has a high silica content. It fortifies cell walls to thicken leaves, stems, branches. Plants are hardened to pests & climate extremes. They can also support bigger yields.
It's 100% Krill and adds N, P, K, calcium, magnesium and sulphur to bring out flavour. It's full of Essential Fatty Acids (Omega/EFA’s) that feed microbes. Most importantly, Krill meal is the most sustainable crustacean - the harvesting of Krill from the ocean gets virtually zero bycatch and is only taken from regenerative fishing zones.
Mealworm Frass (Ecothrive Charge)
It boosts N, P & K and is brimming with beneficial microbes & mealworm castings. It also contains chitin to improves your plant’s immune response and defences.
It’s a nutrient accumulator with deep-reaching roots. It pulls nutrition from areas in the soil plant roots don’t reach. Neem is rich in N, P, K, Calcium & Magnesium and helps prevent pests & pathogens.
It mimics humus, the final product of decomposition! Like humus, it’s rich in humic & fulvic acids. These help chelate nutrients and stimulate microbial activity. Overall, root & plant growth is improved.
How To Use
Per 1.2m2 area, we recommend 160 – 200L of Eco-Life in 4 x 40L pots.
Other pot sizes will work, as long as you use the right amount of media.
e.g. 2 x 80L pots or 6 x 30L pots would work.
You can start most plants off with Eco-Life. But if you’re growing sensitive plants, you can mix in some coco to begin with.
Build up your water level slowly. DO NOT WATER TO REACH RUN-OFF.
For your first water, add 5 – 10% of total pot volume. Check your pots and water every few days.
You want to keep the soil evenly moist, and not too wet. No final flush is needed.
Use good quality water.
Other Nutrients & Additives
If you choose, you can use other additives. Just don’t overdo it and
