Xtreme Gardening has the pioneering new natural microbial technologies which encourage greater yield. Mineral salt and chemical fertilisers can harm the naturally beneficial bacteria in the soil. These bacteria are necessary for effective breakdown and uptake of nutrients for plants to grow defence against disease and pathogens.
Xtreme Gardening’s beneficial microbe products will solve this problem and assist growers to unlock their plant’s true potential, reaching better production levels which can’t be achieved with conventional inputs.
Fresh from the United States, Xtreme Gardening’s Azos is a product of Reforestation Technologies International (RTI), one of the oldest and most renowned producers of biologically-inspired plant products.
First isolated in the Amazon Rainforest, Azos (Azospirillum Brasilense XOH) is a beneficial nitrogen-fixing bacteria that stimulates and boosts growth and root development. Xtreme Gardening have carefully cultured Azos into an aggressive, fast-acting beneficial microbe.
Azos is used to clone plants and to promote healthy, robust growth during the vegetative stages. Do not use it during the bloom phase.
Add 4 tablespoons (65 ml) of Azos to a US gallon of water (3.8 litres) to create a mixture that you can use to soak your rooting plugs before cloning. Xtreme Gardening recommend creating a small quantity of a more concentrated mix (1 part Azos to 2 parts water) that can be used to dip cuttings into before they go into their rooting cubes.
Add 8 tablespoons (125ml) for every US gallon of water (3.8 litres) to create a root drench for established plants in veg only.
When transplanting to new containers, dust roots with 5-10ml of Azos before re-potting.
Azos can be used in a hydroponic system by simply adding to your reservoir at a rate of 250ml per 200 litres of nutrient solution.
Conversions: 1 Teaspoon = 5mL | 1 Tablespoon = 15 mL | 1 Ounce = 30mL | 1 Cup = 240 mL
Growth Promoting Bacteria
Nitrogen-Fixing Bacteria – Of all the nutrients transported to plants through the soil, nitrogen is required in the greatest amount. It drives chlorophyll production in the foliage and keeps plants green and efficient. It is a fundamental part of amino acids and other compounds that assure crop health and productivity. It is a major part of every protein molecule and soils are often deficient of this element. However, the atmosphere is comprised of around 80% nitrogen which is in a form (N2 or Atmospheric Nitrogen) that is not conventionally available to plants.
Nitrogen From the Air – Somewhere along the evolutionary development of the “Plant – Soil – Microbial Matrix”, certain bacteria began to specialize in tasks to enhance plant growth, which in return provided the microbes with a food source exchange opportunity. A select group of bacteria classified as “Diazotrophs” began to supply nitrogen to plants from a range of sources, including decomposed plant litter, dead micro-organisms, and sequestration of atmospheric nitrogen. Azos belongs to the last of these groups and functions primarily as an atmospheric nitrogen converter.
A Natural Isolate From the Amazon – Azos is a particularly-efficient agent originally isolated in the Amazon Basin where the lack of soil, the rapid breakdown of any vegetation by hungry microbes, and the environmental conditions which require “Growth to Survive” is a fundamental proposition of the ecosystem. AZOS specializes in the highly-efficient conversion of the N2 form of nitrogen into plant-available NH3 ammoniacal nitrogen. AZOS is so efficient that between 50% and 70% of all the nitrogen required by most crops can be supplied by this organism.
Plant Growth Promoter – With the increased accessibility of nitrogen in the soil, AZOS can catalyze a natural growth hormone within plants that help promote more root and vegetative growth. AZOS is great for rooting out cuttings, transplants, and water-borne applications throughout various plant stages.

About Xtreme Gardening
Launched in late 2008 as a new, retail division of reputable Reforestation Technologies International (RTI), Xtreme Gardening brings highly effective beneficial biological inoculants to the home gardener.
RTI is best known as the United States’ oldest-running and most renowned producer of Mycorrhizal Inoculum, providing the world with high-quality biological inoculant. RTI products have successfully helped plant over 750 million trees in 9 countries. Also restoring some of the poorest habitats known to man (strip mines, nuclear test sites, deserts, and barren wastelands) around the globe into lush, thriving ecosystems capable of not only sustaining life but producing bountiful harvests.
Xtreme Gardening was born with the goal to inspire a new generation of gardeners and growers. Always striving to maximize yields and quality through biological amendments. Xtreme Gardening combines new technology with results from millions of years of natural evolutionary design, allowing us to provide gardeners with the pure biology needed for superior plant growth.
With Xtreme Gardening beneficial microbes, gardeners are no longer limited by chemical fertilizers and are able to unlock their plants’ true potential while reaching new levels of production Experience the increase in crop yields, in addition to improving moisture and nutrient management, for Xtreme results!
