Hygrozyme™ is North America's #1 selling horticultural enzyme formula. Hygrozyme™ is a powerful blend of concentrated, beneficial enzymes that work synergistically to ensure plants achieve their full genetic potential.
Hygrozyme™ unique proprietary formula contains the highest units/mL of cellulase, which rapidly breaks down dead root matter and converts it into simple sugars which feed your beneficial bacteria. Hygrozyme™ is effective in all growing media & growth stages, and is compatible with all nutrient & supplement programs.
IS HYGROZYME® COMPATIBLE WITH LIVING SOIL AND BENEFICIALS?
Yes, you can use beneficial microbes with Hygrozyme. Hygrozyme converts dead root matter into simple sugars which stimulate USE growth (microbes consume simple sugars as a carbon source for their growth). If you are adding beneficial microbes to your system, you have the option to add less beneficial microbes with every watering, as Hygrozyme will support their growth.
WHAT IS THE USAGE RATE FOR HYGROZYME® AND HOW OFTEN SHOULD I USE IT?
2-2.5 mL per L of water (8-10 mL/Gallon). It is recommended to use Hygrozyme from the very beginning with every watering or nutrient change out until 1 week before harvest.
WHAT ARE ENZYMES?
Enzymes are proteins, made up of amino acids that act as catalysts – they facilitate, energize, and speed up biochemical reactions. In fact, the rate of reaction can be several million times faster than if left un-catalyzed! An extreme example is orotidine 5′-phosphate decarboxylase, which allows a reaction that would otherwise take millions of years to occur in milliseconds.
ARE ENZYMES ALIVE?
Enzymes are not alive nor are they consumed when they catalyze a biochemical reaction. When the biochemical reaction is over, the enzyme is ready to bond to another substrate unit again. Given the right conditions, the enzyme can catalyze the same reaction time and time again.
HOW DO ENZYMES WORK?
Enzymes are highly specific. Only when the right enzyme finds the right substrate, does a biochemical reaction occur. This precise interaction means you never have to worry about undesirable effects. For instance, when cellulase breaks down cellulose into simple sugars, you can be sure that is all that will happen. No other material or process will be altered or affected. Therefore, it is important to have the right enzyme formula like Hygrozyme designed specifically to get rid of the undesirable content without affecting the good.
WHAT ARE THE ENZYMES IN HYGROZYME® USED FOR?
Hygrozyme consists of all the necessary enzymes for breaking down decaying root matter to prevent root rot and increase nutrient uptake in the plant.
