Mycostop Biofungicide contains a naturally occurring bacterial strain isolated from Sphagnum peat, Streptomyces actinobacterium. Streptomyces deprives pathogenic fungi of space and nourishment by colonizing plant roots, where it also acts as a hyperparasite, disrupting cell walls of pathogens and producing metabolites that further inhibit these pathogens
- Organic & 100% natural! OMRI listed since 1988 & EPA registered since 1994
- Easy application by drench, surface spray or through hydroponic delivery
- Can be used simultaneously with nematodes and other biological control organisms
- Control or suppression of many root rot and wilt pathogenic fungi, such as Pythium, Fusarium, Alteraria, Phomopsis, Phizoctonia, Phytophthora and Botrytis. Plants often respond with increased vigor and yield
- Ideal for Hydroponics, solves most root rot issues
- Apply at any time, regardless of plant maturity/stage
- Use on all crops such as medicinal herbs, vegetables and ornamentals
- Colorado MMED approved for use on medicinal herbs up to the day of harvest (SDS available upon request)
- *We cannot currently ship this product to Hawaii or Alaska due to restrictions on the import of biologicals.*
When applied as a drench or spray the dried spores and mycelium of the Streptomyces culture in Mycostop germinate and begin to grow on and around the plant roots. In doing so, they create a biological defense against root infecting pathogenic fungi which cause disease such as wilt and root rot.
Mycostop is used by growers for disease caused by Pythium, Fusarium, Rhizoctonia, Alternaria, Phomopsis, and to a lesser extent for Botrytis and Phytophtora. Mycostop has particularly good activity against Fusarium, Mycostop is increasingly used as a seed treatment for Pythium, Fusarium, and other seedling pathogens.
Mycostop has been shown to increase plant vigor and yields even in the absence of obvious root pathogen activity, as the Streptomyces produce plant root stimulating hormones that benefit plant health overall.

I am getting bigger and healthier flowers, and my plants are happy! Use this a few times during veg and a few times during flower and you will not be disappointed.
Great for root rot and brown roots
If your system is hurting from a root zone problem THIS will fix. It wont make you a better grower but it will help with slime and root rot and most root zone problems I have come to see.I use as a top rinse 5g pack on a 12 plant system. I have turned dark brown dead slimy roots into a harvest using this. Happy growing!!
