Often a question regarding using beneficial bacteria and Enzymes Komplete™ together has been raised. The answer is – definitely – Yes and even more to say, that Enzymes Komplete™ will be an excellent addition to be used together with any type of beneficial bacteria that allow to create a better living environment with an abundance of food for beneficial bacteria to happily grow and multiply.
The multi-purpose use of Enzymes Komplete™ will provide a wide spectrum for applications and great results. Now, about the beneficial bacterias and in particular, Mammoth-P. We are very familiar with lots of beneficial bacteria products – including Mammoth-P – and always have reports of great success by using Enzymes Komplete™ together with them.
By analyzing the details regarding the interaction of Enzymes Komplete™ with Mammoth-P, it gave conclusive answers and remedies to be suggested. When Enzymes Komplete™ is used in growing systems – especially in closed growing systems – with the presence of good bacteria such as Mammoth-P in particular – 2 very important points must be respected above all:
1. First is the added Oxygen supply (have lots of oxygen in the water)
2. The Temperature in the system
When Enzymes Komplete™ is added to the system, it immediately starts doing its great job of cleaning and cleansing the system and starts breaking down dead organic matter/proteins.
The dirtier the system, the more dead proteins will be broken down and will create an overwhelming amount of food that will feed good bacteria. Besides processing and decomposing dead matter/dead proteins, chemical lock outs and salt build ups will also be released that have been trapped in the dirty and uncleaned system and that release alone, will be very harmful to any living bacteria. In that case, the amount of Enzymes Komplete™ per liter of water must be reduced by 4X and performed on a recommended 3 stage cleaning procedure.
“Enzymes Komplete™ is uniquely designed to clean, cleanse and recondition.”
The solution for that problem is very simple:
1. For every system there needs to be a way to figure out how dirty the system is and how many ml/gallon needs to be used for the cleaning.
2. At the time of cleaning, the presence of a cooling/refrigerating equipment needs to be in place and implemented and some of the growers do not have Chillers and at the time of applications, they are using plastic bottles full of water out of the freezer and rotating them as necessary – and that is for the overall temperature inside the system.
The supply of oxygen must be permanent to a system, especially during all cleaning and cleansing procedures. The targeted temperature of the system inside must be not be higher than 69 degrees Fahrenheit/20 Degrees Celsius – that is the magic number. As for Enzymes Komplete™ – Enzymes Komplete™ is bacteria free, pH balanced and cannot harm any living organisms – including beneficial bacteria.
3 Easy Steps!
All growing systems, big or small, simple or complex, have many common similarities. Many growing systems such as: Current Culture, Turboklone, Ebb & Flow, EZ Cloner, Deep Water Culture (DWC) and others, normally experience similar problems and conditions that could be solved by Enzymes Komplete™. All of the systems must be regularly cleaned and kept clean, to assure happy and healthy gardening operations.
If any particular system will be cleaned right from the start, the recommended amount of Enzymes Komplete™, 6ml- 8ml per one gallon of water, should be considered standard procedure. EVERY GARDENER MUST TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION if Enzymes Komplete™ is not introduced from the start of growing operations, THE 3 EASY STEPS OF APPLICATION ARE STRONGLY RECOMMENDED.
It makes no difference if it is just a few days after starting or half way through a cycle or during bloom, the first step must be only use of 2ml per one gallon of water. Second flush, the dose will increase up to 4 ml per gallon and the 3rd flush the dosage should be 6ml – 8ml per gallon of water.
The above 3 EASY CLEANING STEPS are a very important precaution to regulate the release of chemical lockout and salt build up that has accumulated inside of a system and needs to be cleaned and carefully removed without shocking plants.
Often, nitrogen deficiencies will also appear at the time of cleaning and releasing chemical lockouts and salt build ups. Typical nitrogen deficient foliage will be a good illustration of the problem. Every cleaning and breaking down procedure will create an increase in temperature, a swing in pH with a large consumption of oxygen.
So the picture is very simple – lots of food becomes available for good bacteria but unfortunately, sometimes more than could be consumed by good bacteria.The growing systems become overheated with a lack of oxygen and will no longer support all natural and necessary life processes and that will provoke unwanted negative reactions and effect the life of good bacteria.
