Feed Your Soil and Build Happy Roots
Build and Feed a Happy Living Soil
Reefertilizer® Start was created to improve soil quality. Millions of beneficial bacteria and organisms live in the soil. These helpful little guys keep soil pH under control and help plants absorb nutrients efficiently. Many potting soils are lacking in this department. Reefertilizer Start helps feed organisms in the soil increasing their population. It also builds mycorrhizal fungus networks that protect roots from drought and improve their ability to take in water and nutrients.
Build a Healthier Happier Soil For Your Favourite Plant
Add Before Transplanting
Mycorrhiza grows best when in direct contact with root systems. This friendly fungus protects roots and improves water and nutrient uptake.
Monthly Top Dressing
Kelp meal as a top monthly top dressing nourishes beneficial bacteria in your soil.
Easy Weekly Feeding Schedule
Reefertilizer likes to keep things simple. Feed your plants once a week and top up your soil with Start once a month.
Some folks split the weekly dose and feed their plants twice a week.
If you need more or less nutrient solution, just use the same ratio no matter how much water you’re using.
If you accidentally overfeed your plants, you can easily flush your medium with water.
An Organic Soil Amendment With Mycorrhizae That Was Crafted For Consumable Plants
Our Reefertilizer™ Start formula contains organic sea kelp and mycorrhizal spores.
When these dry granules are used during transplant, they can help build helpful fungal structures that grow with your roots called mycorrhizae. Mycorrhizal spores have an easier time propagating when in direct contact with roots.
The kelp meal is chock full of beneficial micronutrients, amino acids, and natural growth hormones. A monthly top dressing is all you need to help feed and bolster the living elements of your soil.
A healthy living soil will be able to better support your plants’ ability to uptake water and nutrients. Microbes in your soil help balance pH and provide natural tools to help your plants metabolize nutrients.
Providing these essential elements early on will help your plants establish a strong root zone as quickly as possible.
We source the highest quality organic mycorrhizae and compost from reputable Canadian suppliers.
Reefertilizer Start is not recommended for hydroponic, aeroponic, or DWC since it’s not water soluble.

One bag provides 33 applications.
This fantastic fungus grows symbiotically with all sorts of plants. When these spores are close to the roots they begin to grow. Slowly a fungal structure grows that will protect roots from drought while improving nutrient and water uptake.
Brown Sea Kelp
Not high in NPK but packed with micronutrients, growth hormones, and amino acids. Organic sea kelp will feed microbes in your soil. Happy microbes create an ideal environment for nutrient availability.

Reefertilizer Starter Soil Recipe
This soil recipe is great for starting seeds or planting clones. Most potting soils from your local garden center will do the trick. Bump up its quality by adding compost, perlite, and Reefertilizer Start.
These amendments help add beneficial microbes to your soil, improve water retention, and builds a mycorrhizal network further improving your plants’ ability to absorb nutrients and water.

- 1 Part – Perlite
(Helps retain moisture and enhance soil structure)
- 3 Scoops of Start for every 4L of soil
(Mycorrhizal spores improve root performance and kelp meal to help feed your soil bacteria and young plants.)
Mix these ingredients well and add a little bit of water making it slightly moist.

Questions and Answers
What makes Reefertilizer Bloom different from other bloom boosters?
Our products are designed for high value plants and for ease of use. Start can be added to any type of soil or soilless growing mediums making it more versatile than other products. Many premium potting soils contain small amounts of myco spread out through the medium, roots need to find their way to a myco spore before they can inoculate themselves. By using start as a starter soil, your plants’ roots are inoculated sooner, resulting in faster growth.

When do I start feeding my plants Reefertilizer Start?
Start can be used at any point while growing. If your plants are already established you can apply Start as a top dressing.
Ideally, you would add some during transplant as a seedling or before flowering. You can re-apply Start as a top dressing monthly to help feed your soil and bolster the microbial population.
How much do I feed my plants?
Start with 3 scoops in the transplant hole when putting your seedlings into a bigger pot for veg or flower. Every month add 3 more scoops as a top dressing.
Don’t plant your seeds directly into Start or they might be harmed. Reefertilizer Start is not a soil replacement and it can be too strong for young seedlings.
