Biosys contains a unique blend of microbes and natural plant growth stimulants. Easy and quick to mix and use, nothing immediately improves the health of your root zone quite like Biosys. Breathe new life into your plants with Biosys — the instant microbial tea from Ecothrive.
Biosys is a concentrated powder that you add to water to make what we call a ‘microbe tea’. It contains some quite complex ingredients that work on a few levels. The microbes in Biosys improve root function, increase nutrient and water availability, help with disease prevention, speed up the breakdown of organic matter and improve plant growth. These organisms include;
- 8 Species of Endomycorrhizal fungi
- 8 Species of Bacillus
- 2 Species of Nitrogen-fixing bacteria
- 2 Species of Pseudomonas
- 2 Species of Trichoderma
Biosys also contains biological catalysts to allow activation and continued growth of beneficial bacteria and fungi within the root zone – right where you need them. These catalysts that activate and sustain the microbes include humic acids, amino acids, enzymes, proteins, carbohydrates and seaweed extract.
When added to water and applied to the root zone, Biosys comes to life quickly to improve the root environment of your crop. Biosys is ideal for use outdoors on open soil, as well as indoors with potting soil, coco, hydroponic growing media (such as rockwool) and even in hydroponic systems with little or no growing media.
Biosys is very suitable to (re)populate, to stimulate and maintain the biological balance in the root zone. Biosys is ideally applied during propagation of seedlings or cuttings, with subsequent applications every 1-2 weeks indoors, and every 4 weeks outdoors. Biosys has a unique action that quickly populates the rhizosphere with a diversity of natural microorganisms to enable your plants to thrive.
Always dechlorinate your water by leaving it to stand overnight before adding Biosys. This is good practice generally and will create a friendlier environment for the micro herd. Avoid using Biosys with nutrients at ECs over 1.5 (plus the base level of your tap water).
For Seeds and Cuttings
Use at 1g per litre of water. Give your rooting plugs a good soak for 15 minutes and then squeeze out the excess liquid before continuing as usual.
For Potting On
Add Biosys at a rate of 1g per litre and then water it onto your plants after re-potting. This will help to colonise the fresh substrate.
For Established Plants
Use at 0.5g per litre of water. If you want to use Biosys alongside your other nutrients, drop your feed down to half strength; otherwise, use it with plain water. Do this once every 1 to 2 weeks.
Biosys works a treat in re-circulating systems – just make sure that you drop the dosage down to 0.25g per litre and keep your nutrient solution aerated. Do this once every 1 to 2 weeks.
As an Anti-Stress Tonic
Biosys can speed up the recovery of stressed plants. Just add to plain water at a rate of 0.5g per litre and apply at 5-day intervals.
You can add Biosys when performing a weekly flush at a rate of 0.5g per litre (or 0.25g per litre in recirculating systems).

Biosys has been formulated after years of testing and development by the team at Ecothrive, makers of the much sought-after, and highly regarded, ‘Charge’. The idea was to create a complete product that would deliver multiple types of beneficial microorganisms at once, and in a way that was quick and easy to use. To maximise the results, Ecothrive have also added a complex mix of growth-enhancing, complementary ingredients – enzymes, amino acids, proteins, humic acids, carbohydrates, yeasts and seaweed extract.
Endomycorrhizal fungi (x8 species)
Forms a symbiotic relationship with roots: plants feed endo mycorrhiza sugars, and in exchange, the fungi help plants to uptake water and nutrients.
Bacillus (x8 species)
Inhibits pathogens, helps to prevent diseases, accelerates root development and improves nutrient uptake.
Nitrogen-fixing bacteria (x2 species)
Azotobacter and Azospirillum convert nitrogen from the air into a form that can be uptaken.
Pseudomonas (x2 species)
Plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (or PGPRs) produce plant strengthening hormones like cytokinins and auxins, common ingredients found in many ‘Boost’ products.
Trichoderma (x2 species)
Beneficial fungi that help to prevent attacks from pathogenic fungi.
“Excellent product. My plants were looking pretty sorry for themselves after after trying numerous remedy to eradicate a spider mite problem. Crinkly, mutated leaves and poor growth.
Once I’d fumigated the tent and solved the SM issue (Fortefog P Fumer to the rescue!!). I decided to try Ecothrive Biosys to try and revive my babies.
I was not disappointed. The plants love it, they responded quickly and are all looking healthy and vigorous. I would highly recommend”
“This is my first time using these products and have just used them to kickstart some chilli plants I overwintered. After two weeks they have really ‘come back to life’, much quicker and robust than in previous years. From the initial results I’ll be using these products during the growing season on a wider range of plants, possibly orchids.”
“Nice organic combination, just started using it but can see the improvements, proper stinker when made into tea…“
