Time to prep the planting hole for my pumpkin. How much Mycorrhizae do you use when planting?

a light dusting/amount depends on the hole size:). Youre just trying to get contact with some myco spores to get an innoculum on the root surface

I'm going to use 2-15 gramm pks I recieved from Mark Wallace. I ordered pots from him and he was nice enough to give me a sample pk and join a survey.

Rick, those are super starter packs from Ron Wallace. They do have Mykos, but there is other fertilizer in them too.
I've heard anywhere from 1 TBSP to a 1/4 cup. I will be using 1/4 cup.

I use between 2 and 4 TBS of Pumpkin Pro depending on the size of the rootball I have to plant. Plus each plant got 3 Super Starter Packs.

Just grab a pinch between your thumb and three fingers and sprinkle it in there. As long as a tiny bit touches the roots. There’s no need to over think it.
