  • Understanding Transplant Limitations
    Field harvested transplants generally loose 60-80% of fibrous root mass as a result of field digging & plant harvest protocols. Containerized plants are generally supported by proportionally larger fibrous root mass; however, the fact that root formations are vastly compacted and confined renders them susceptible to a moderate degree of limited root function as well. Containerized or field dug transplants have one thing in common - significantly curtailed and limited root functions. To compensate for reduced root functions, biostimulation along with soil inoculation with beneficial 'root-like' mycorrhizal fungus and other beneficial soil biotics proves particularly valuable in maintaining plant health and vigor throughout plant stabilization and recovery.

    Transplants have special needs throughout the recovery-stabilization period immediately following plant harvest and/ or installation. It is now that transplants remain most vulnerable to irreversible plant decline symptoms that more often than not lead to complete mortality. Absent proper biological and physiological relationships trees, shrubs, flowers, and turfgrasses must sustain with living soil organisms, transplantation and ultimate project successes are likely to prove difficult and problematic.

    TRANSPLANT SUCCESS - "Dirt or Soil"
    Most often essential microbes, bacterium, beneficial fungi, biological's and other pro-biotic soil organisms are greatly reduced or inadvertently destroyed in disturbed man-made landscape and construction environments. Without a sound soil-remediation plan, attempts to successfully re-establish ornamentals and other vegetative materials in lifeless biological void planting sites will most often limit transplant success significantly. Fact - lifeless soils in time support lifeless plants! Self-sustaining soils are more than a random aggregate of air, water, minerals, and decomposing humic organic matter. It's so, so easy to forget about vital soil organisms while for all practical purposes they remain invisible - virtually out of sight. Soils that support plant life must first have life. Soils that are sterile and lifeless are nothing more than Dirt! Quite simply, for planting and project success - converting "dirt to soils" is imperative and surprisingly easy and inexpensive. DIRT or SOILS...the choice is your's!
    TRANSPLANT SUCCESS - More Than Fertilizer, Mulch & Water
    Making a bad situation even worse, transplants are most often installed into a substandard planting sites frequently possessing more dirt than soil characteristics. Further subjected to unpredictable environmental extremes (heat, cold, wet, dry, wind, etc.) - little wonder transplants survive at all without some added measure of soil modification and targeted plant support. Predictable transplant success requires a more thorough, more complex approach other than traditional "fertilizer, mulch and water".

    Bio-Plex Transplant Concentrate, ROOT MAXX Plus, Mycorrhizae along with Bio-Plex 5-in-1 Complete Planting Granules form a 'core product group' that prove extremely effective in offsetting numerous "Agronomic Transplant Limitations" often challenging today's Landscape Contractors and Nursery professionals. The bottom-line is, you can purchase the healthiest plants, install them with the utmost "TLC", in award winning designs and without adequate plant support - proper soil ecology, plant establishment problems and transplant losses will continue to remain unacceptable. As the saying goes - there's no free lunch. Elevated plant stress, reduced plant health & vigor most often coupled with poor, substandard site & soil conditions 'quite predictably' limit plant establishment and transplant success!
