  • Ingredients
    Key Ingredient – Wood Biochar is fine-grained unpainted, non-pressure treated wood charcoal high in organic carbon resistant to decomposition. Pre-Columbian Indians are believed to have used Biochar to make the poor soils of the rainforest – which otherwise quickly become exhausted – productive for harvest. Its porous nature makes it great at retaining water and nutrients and forming a habitat for beneficial soil microorganisms, promoting good soil fertility and plant health. We activate the Biochar and populate it with microorganisms before it’s added to the potting mix for an immediate benefit. See details on all ingredients in our Journal.
    Full list: Organic compost, Wood Biochar, worm castings, fish bone meal, bat guano, feather meal, blood meal, alfalfa meal, shrimp meal, humic acid (derived from leonardite), basalt rock dust, and kelp meal. It also contains the non-plant food ingredients mycorrhizae. For best performance with maximum microbial activity, use within 2 years from the manufacturer’s stamped date on top of bag.
  • Directions For Use
    Bio-Tope is ready to go and easy to use. Designed to be blended with any container growing medium, Bio-Tope brings structure and biology back up to Opus' high standards. Use Bio-Tope after each growing cycle. For example, if you have as many as four crops per year with indoor growing, use Bio-Tope approximately every 12 weeks for maximum growing results.
    Place Bio-Tope in the bottom 1/3 of your planting container and fill the remaining area with any Opus Grows Mix or any other old soil. This creates an ideal biological and structural base for helping your favorite plants get kicked off to a great start! Is your growing mix looking a little tired? A double shot of Bio-Tope will give them the jolt they need! Just mix 1 part Bio-Tope + 2 parts tired container growing mix.
  • Third Party Growing Tests
    Microbial Matrix Systems Inc. got our soil under the microscope to determine the impact of biochar on Opus Grows soil biology. By a process called epifluorescence microscopy (used to quantify the populations of beneficial bacteria and fungi, aka soil biology), they found that our compost activated with biochar has significantly improved microbial activity relative to compost without biochar. The active soil biology converts organic matter into nutrients needed for root development, plant growth & vigor, and fruit development.
