Why Ecothrive Charge Stands Out

Super Easy to Use and Effective: All growers, from complete beginners to seasoned pros, love Ecothrive Charge because it’s so easy to use, versatile and effective. Blend with your preferred potting mix or apply any time as a tactical top dressing. The choice is yours. The difference is clear!

Innovative Compressed Chunks: Ecothrive Charge is now available as small compressed chunks, designed to reduce dust and simplify application significantly. The chunks are 50% more concentrated than mealworm frass powder form, providing a potent boost to your plants.

Balanced and Rich Nutrient Profile: Boasting a balanced N/P/K ratio of 3.5/2.5/2, Ecothrive Charge delivers a long-term supply of organic nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium—all essential for plant growth. It also nurtures beneficial soil microbes, creating a thriving root environment and leading to healthier, more resilient plants.

Enhanced Plant Health and Yield: Ecothrive Charge invigorates your plants from the roots up, encouraging robust growth, improving root zone conditions, and leading to vigorous, high-yielding harvests. It's not just a fertiliser; it's a complete biological solution.

Rich in Chitin: Derived from the skin and body parts of organically fed mealworms, the Chitin in Ecothrive Charge is a crucial component that feeds beneficial microbes, particularly fungi, in the soil. When introduced into the growing medium, chitin acts as a food source for these microbes, encouraging their proliferation. As the microbial community thrives, it breaks down the chitin into smaller, usable compounds that plants can easily assimilate. This microbial activity enhances soil fertility and nutrient availability; it also triggers a natural immune response in plants. Recognising the presence of chitin, plants activate their defence mechanisms, fortifying themselves against potential pathogens and pests. This natural stimulation of the plant's immune system leads to healthier, more resilient growth, and increased productivity.
