Enhance MC Microbial
Foliar, Cloning Solution, Rooting Concentrate, Fulvic Acid, Kelp, Shortens Nodes, Breaks Down Dead Roots, Faster Nutrient Uptake, Helps to Finish Plants & Much More ...
Enhance MC Microbial is a misunderstood product, as you can't describe everything it does on a label. It has nitrogen-fixing and phosphate-solubilizing microbes that help to make nitrogen and phosphorous more available. It also contains microbes that break down cellulose, so it helps to clean up dead roots and breaks down fiber. In flower, when Brix57 carbohydrates are added, coco fiber may drop an inch or so as the microbes convert a small amount of fiber into a food source for the plants. It also contains kelp and 6% fulvic acid. Our kelp, like all of our ingredients, is very clean and used as a great foliar during the veg phase, Also due to the strength of the fulvic acid, only a small amount of our microbial can be used per gallon of water. It allows the plant to take up as many nutrients as it can handle, which sometimes may help to create micronutrient deficiencies if there are not enough nutrients in your soil, or growers are not paying attention. In part, that is why we created our Micro DS micronutrient product to make sure your soil medium has enough available micronutrients.
**Organic Soil Growers that Top Dress and Use Teas**
A word about Enhance MC with organic growing practices, it is so potent that we recommend a much smaller dose and application rate when used as a stand-alone or in our GreasePacks. By itself it can make so much available that the nitrogen in the pot will take off and there are not enough available micronutrients to meet the needs of the new growth, creating deficiencies. It is not that the new growth is bad but understanding that just because minerals have been added to the pot does not make them immediately available to the plant. They have to be mineralized by the biology for the plant to uptake and this process takes much longer than those salt-based nutrients that are more immediately available to the plant. If it is just about the microbes then you really only need to use it as a pre-plant application in the soil as those microbes will expand in the pot. We use it consistently through a cycle more for the fulvic acid and to make more available to create healthier larger plants. We have growers that use KNF techniques and do a lot of teas, but we back off the amount needed to as low as 0.1-0.25 mL per 1-2 weeks in an organic soil setting unless using high nitrogen like GLB Fish, and either GLB Micro DS or make sure there are heavier amounts for organic micronutrients if not using GLB Micro DS.

The end goal is nutrient efficiency, and how root systems uptake nutrients for a higher quality and yielding plant. At the end of the day, no matter how nice your roots look, if your quality and yield are not better on the end product you are wasting time, energy, and money on products that are not giving you any more value than the one product in Enhance MC.
So, what does Enhance MC do?
Some microbial products throw microbes in their products that they don’t understand are antagonistic to each other in the same bottle. Enhance MC microbes complement each other. Growers want high-quality roots to make a high-quality product. They want to get rid of any dead or dying roots due to abiotic and biotic stresses, so it does not create additional issues with their plants. Most Growers also want the maximum amount of nutrients to uptake into their plants, and finally, we all want to pay a fair price for an excellent product.
That’s what Enhance MC is...
In addition, the original formulation was made to go through micro emitters in drip systems for field use without clogging up the lines, so it works just as well in hydroponics systems. Enhance MC is a very concentrated, clean microbial product and is worth having as a staple in every indoor grow, greenhouse, or the field.
In the vegetative phase Enhance MC helps to keep the stacking of nodes tight as well as faster recovery of mother plants after cloning, or when stripping plants. But an important function outside of the proper microbes to work with the plant is the fulvic acid.
Why did we add GLB Fulvic Acid?
Our fulvic acid, which is one of the strongest in the industry, helps to make your nutrients more available to the plant. Whatever is the weakest link in your pot can turn into a deficiency if used at too strong a dose or more importantly, if you do not have enough proper available nutrients in your pot. Normally plants will grow to the weakest nutrient in the soil and that means that plants may be smaller in general because of it, but if your soil is completely available and the plant starts to uptake more nitrogen and the corresponding magnesium, sulfur, and molybdenum are not there, it can't correctly make chlorophyll. So we recommend in straight organic grows, that use organic top dressings which must be mineralized first, we reduce the amount of Enhance MC used during the cycle as stated above.
Why do we say the strongest in the industry? There are fulvic acids out there at 70-90%, but not all fulvic acids are the same or made out of the same material. We have products we only sell in agriculture that are either 20% organic or 30% conventional but can only be used at extremely small dosages or they will cannibalize your plants if not enough nutrients in the soil. Other products on the market use 15 plus mL per gallon of water application rates and if we did that with Enhance MC, growers would be killing plants because there would not be enough micronutrients in the soil to handle all the processes. Our Enhance MC microbial is only used at max rates of 0.15-0.25 mL daily or 0.3-0.5 mL on every other day feeds and when growers are using a complete base nutrient.
Using high doses over 0.5-1 mL per gallon in a mix and feed or 0.25 mL in a reservoir-based system can cause your plant to create too much availability. However, each strain can handle different amounts, but only experienced GLB users can really find what the optimal rate is for their strains in their environment. In this process we call it being "pushed " but it's actually not being pushed at all, but rather making more available for uptake. It can happen even at lower doses as well if not using a micronutrient supplement. Many soils don't have enough micronutrients and we see deficiencies in many bagged soils very earlier on sometimes. Any soil company touting "Water Only" soil has never used our products and if as a grower you are using those soils please be prepared to amend it.
Therefore, it is important to pair Enhance MC with enough food in the plants. This can easily be corrected by raising the micronutrient application rates if the grower is wanting larger growth or reducing Enhance MC if wanting less of a plant response. The combination of Enhance MC and GLB Micro DS is a part of our GreasePack and additional benefits can be found in the Amendment Pack section.
In addition, why should you have to buy a second or third product just because our competitors want to make you pay more? The goal of adding microbes is to raise the nutrient efficiency in your growing medium. If you can also help your microbes to convert nutrients more easily, why wouldn't you? Enhance MC is one product that can compete as a microbial, kelp, fulvic acid, and enzyme product that cleans up dead roots all in one as well as a foliar.
Indoors – When using Enhance MC with 6% Fulvic there are a few strategies for use.
Just for the Microbes – If it is just for the microbial content use 0.1-0.25 mL per gallon max 1 time every 1-2 weeks. This will allow the microbes to start expanding but will not open too much of the nutrients within the soil to be immediately available.
Creating Full Nutrient Efficiency – used at
0.25 mL per gallon on a Hydro or Daily Feed rate
0.5 mL per gallon Every Other Day Feed
**If super soil** some growers will use 1 mL per gallon every other day but later in flower it may create micronutrient deficiencies.**
Pushing Soil – experienced users only – Super Soil growers have pushed 1 mL, but it is based on experience using Enhance MC and understanding the amount of nutrients that are in the soil. This is for advanced users only. Even super soil growers would need additional micronutrient amendments. We recommend GLB Micro DS and though a GLB Clean Mineral-based product it is not OMRI listed. Micronutrient products are mineral based, and even though many have an OMRI listing, they are considered synthetic not organic though approved by OMRI. Check that out for yourself.
Normally we only advise an amendment dose of our Micro DS as growers only need 0.1 mL daily or 0.2 mL every other day. If really pushing or still see a deficiency in super soils and the grower does not have an additional micronutrient source, GLB Micro DS can be raised up to a full dose which is 0.50-0.75 mL per gallon every other day in soil.
When using Enhance MC there can be so much uptake that the plants have a lot of nitrogen and may take longer to fade your leaves and pull out the chlorophyll. In most cases, growers using nutrient bottles or powder can reduce the nitrogen and it will start to fade but it sometimes is harder with soils. In this case, we use Enhance MC to allow more availability. It can help to chelate nutrients at a faster rate, which can remove chlorophyll from the leaves and help the fade of nitrogen from the plant a little faster. We have growers that will use 0.50-3plus mL per gallon at the beginning of a flush to start the process. This will be something each grower will have to find what works for their specific plants and soil. The result is more nutrients are pulled into the flowers including a raise in secondary metabolites from the leaves.
As a note, we have backed off in some cases heavy additional Enhance MC and started to also use additional Brix57 carbohydrates to ramp up the microbes in the pot creating also an additional pull on the nutrients, but creating a higher resin source in the process.
