The Fungal Grapevine

When you think about the communication between living things, you probably think about talking, writing, or even body language. But did you know that trees in the forest also communicate with each other using mushrooms? This may sound like science fiction, but it is a real phenomenon that scientists are just beginning to understand!

In this blog post, we will discuss how trees in the forest use mushrooms to communicate, and how Plantonix's Myco Bliss can help your plants thrive by supporting the beneficial relationship between trees and mushrooms.

How Do Trees in the Forest Use Mushrooms to Communicate?

Trees in the forest have been communicating with each other for millions of years, but we are only just starting to understand how they do it.

One of the ways trees communicate is through a vast underground network of fungi called mycorrhizae. These fungi form a symbiotic relationship with the trees, where the fungi provide the trees with nutrients, and in exchange, the trees provide the fungi with carbohydrates.

The mycorrhizae also connect the roots of trees to each other, allowing them to share information and resources. For example, if one tree is under stress it can release chemicals into the air that can be detected by nearby trees through the mycorrhizal network, facilitating natural communication and support among the plants. 

How Can Plantonix's Myco Bliss Help?

 Plantonix's Myco Bliss is a mycorrhizal inoculant that can help your plants thrive! To do this, it establishes a beneficial relationship between the roots of your plants and mycorrhizae.

 When you add Myco Bliss to the soil, the mycorrhizae will colonize the roots of your plants, helping them to absorb more nutrients and water. The mycorrhizae also help to protect the plants from stress, making them more resilient.

But that's not all. Myco Bliss can also help to support the communication between plants by establishing a robust mycorrhizal network in your soil.

When the mycorrhizae are thriving, they can connect the roots of your plants to each other, allowing them to share information and resources, just like the trees in the forest.

In addition to Myco Bliss, Plantonix also offers other products that can help to support the health and vitality of your plants, including Coco Bliss, which is a premium coco coir growing medium made from the outer husk of coconut shells.

Coco Bliss is an excellent alternative to peat moss, which is often harvested from environmentally sensitive areas.


By establishing a beneficial relationship between the roots of your plants and mycorrhizae using Plantonix's Myco Bliss, you can help your plants thrive and support the communication between them. So, if you're looking for a natural and sustainable way to boost the health and vitality of your plants, give Myco Bliss a try today!

Happy Gardening!
