Black Pearl is the first product in our new Grotek Green line! Eight Years ago, Grotek brought biochar into our industry as a means to improve soil quality, plant growth, and stimulate biology in the soil. Continued research is the reason we increased the level of Biochar in the new formula (over 70% by volume). The evidence is clear – when used as part of a soil and nutrient management program, Biochar can increase plant growth while improving overall soil quality.
Black Pearl is more than just high-quality Biochar. It is a highly mineralized Biochar charged with quality organic inputs like volcanic and sedimentary rock dust, natural chelates and kelp extract. The synergy between ingredients provides a dramatic boost to crops when added to any nutrient program. Remember, not all Biochar is the same and making Biochar isn’t as easy as having a fire and scooping ash and charcoal into your containers. The Biochar in Black Pearl is virgin wood fiber that is taken from sustainably managed forests and designed through an engineered pyrolytic process (Low oxygen combustion). It is a considered class 1 product by the International Biochar Initiative and has exceptional surface area at over 700m²/g.
Black Pearl is a perfect addition to any nutrient program to help boost plant growth by focusing on the quality of the soil and feeding the roots. Add it any time you are transplanting.
