Sumo Cakes® Root Elixir

Ever since I started making Sumo Cakes® people have been asking me if I had any mycorrhizae products, and I have always said no. My assumption is that they are looking for the powder versions that they can inoculate their soil with after repotting or whatever.
The Sumo Cakes® Root Elixir doesn’t really solve that but what it does do is provide a liquid mixed bag (or bottle in this case) of beneficial microorganisms, micronutrients, and macronutrients.

What is Root Elixer?

Sumo Cakes® Root Elixir is a liquid root drench and microbial inoculant. It contains nutrients that are immediately available to plants as well as soil microbes to encourage microbial colonization in the root zone. This colonization of microbes helps the plants to achieve enhanced nutrient uptake.
Sumo Cakes® Root Elixir also supplies the essential macro and micronutrients that can help plants thrive.

Root Elixir has been in the works for a while. A few conversations with my soil consultant, locating the proper ingredients to achieve what I was looking for, followed by lab tests and here is what you get. A micronutrient-rich microbial inoculant root elixir.
