Soil Inoculants 

BIOSHOT:

Blog: The Basics of Bioshot

BioShot is the BioDude's unique microbial supplement and organic fertilizer for bioactive vivariums, and works well with all BioDude soil products. Formulated with  mycorrhizal fungi and natural insect-based fertilizer to promote the efficient conversion of organic waste too nutrients easily absorbed by plant roots. The Bio Shot also contains the macronutrients necessary for healthy plant growth, including a perfect 2-4-2 balance of Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium to encourage your vivarium plants to grow fuller and healthier than ever before. These nutrients are provided in safe, 100% animal based organic forms that are safe for all pet reptiles and amphibians, from dart frogs to monitor lizards, and the microbes can thrive in bone dry or wet environments. 

Ingredients: Insect Frass, Worm Castings, Inert Clay, Endo Mycorrhizal Fungi strains  (Rhizophagus Irregularis, Rhizophagus aggregatus,   Rhizophagus proliferum, Rhizophagus clarus, Claroideoglomis etunicatum).

NOT FOR HUMAN OR ANIMAL CONSUMPTION

Each shot covers one 6 quart bag of BioDude substrate. The Dude does not recommended splitting your Bio-Shot into multiple tanks due to the precision of the measurement.  Bio-Shot does not replace the need for a Hydrogrow drainage layer.

 

BIOVIVE:

Blog: What is BioVive?

The Dude's all new proprietary and handcrafted miracle soil revitalizer, BioVive. Throughout the life of your bioactive terrarium some specific elements and minerals are eventually depleted and not put back into the eco-system, or naturally these elements are lost via decomposition processes from your clean up crews, beneficial fungi and bacteria. The Dude's BioVive not only helps replace those essential lost nutrients, but delivers it into a form that is easily absorbed by plant roots, as well as providing a necessary driver for your essential fungal and biological processes within the soil itself. Being 100% organic and animal safe BioVive is recommend for Bioactive terraria that have been established for longer than 6 months and is recommended to use with the established BioShot for optimum results.  BioVive will also inoculate the soil with beneficial microbes and bacteria that will not only improve your already occurring processes, but encouraging new strains and promote a healthier soil while consistently re-energizing your substrate. 

Each BioVive bag will provide enough for up to one Bio Dude 36 quart bag. 50 grams can be used for this much substrate (36 quarts) and under.  DO NOT USE with new vivariums with the BioShot as this will cause burn damage to the plants root systems  This is only for terrariums that have been established for over 6 months. 

This video will display and show you how we utilize the components from an old and previous enclosure to revive and reestablish your new set up!
