using plantshield as dusting on callla tubers

apermann(z6 ID)March 24, 2005

Hi has anyone had any experience with Plantshield (Trichoderma) I think it is also called Rootshield as a dusting on calla tubers. The directions say that it can be dusted on tubers before planting or used as a drench. I have seen some literature that said it is best to incorporate into the soil before planting but I do not have a rate for that use. Has anyone used this product and do you know of any benefits of incorporating over dusting the tubers? Thanks in advance

to be honest, callas (zantedeschia) do not need much tuber care. I plant mine out into insect and nasty infested soil which is prone to mould and rot and they do fine. I hope i have understood correctly that plantshield is an anti rot or insect detterant.

If not, forget everything you just read
