Alpha Thrive: The All-Natural Treatement For Landscape, Garden, and Ponds
Is Alpha Thrive a chemical?

Why is Alpha Thrive so effective?
In a nutshell, the bacteria in Alpha Thrive colonize on the hair-like structures of the plant root to increase nutrient absorption and stimulate growth. This means the roots can gather food and water from farther away, which makes them healthier and more sustainable. The result you’ll see on the surface is more resilient and robust plants that are better able to withstand transplant stress, excessive heat and disease. You’ll also see increased flowering and fruit bearing.
How do I apply Alpha Thrive?
