Shogun ZenZym is an enzyme treatment that will help keep the root zone healthy and free of detritus. As plants grow, older roots die off to be replaced with newer, thicker, stronger roots and these old roots tend to just rot away in the media. This can be bad news in a closed container or system as bacteria and fungus can quickly colonise is and upset the microbial balance around the roots, sometimes causing disease.
Shogun ZenZym quickly breaks down this dead root matter and releases it back to the plant as nutrition that it can use. It does this by using the enzymes cellulase, xylanase, pectinase and glucanase. These rapidly reduce dead matter and so prevent undesirable microbes from taking hold. As an added benefit, the extra nutrition released back will boost plant performance.
