WHAT IS IT?


MOLLY MAGIC is a volcanic rock called zeolite. It is mined in southern Idaho from a huge deposit at the Bear River Zeolite Mine. It has the ability to hold up to 55% of its weight in water in channel ways. It also has the ability to hold nitrogen, potassium, and calcium in its crystal structure where they are plant accessible but not water-soluble. This creates a time-release mechanism to prevent pollution and the burning of the plant by nitrogen. 

 

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

        LAWNS.  For new lawns till in 10 to 15 pounds per 100 square feet in the top 3 to 4 inches of soil before seeding or laying sod. Water thoroughly.  For existing lawns broadcast 10 to 15 pounds per 100 square feet

        FLOWER AND VEGETABLE GARDENS.  Till 10 to 15 pounds per 100 square feet into the top 6 inches of soil before seeding, planting, or transplanting. Water thoroughly.

        POTTING SOILS.  Thoroughly mix 2 to 3 pounds with 10 pounds of potting soil and water thoroughly. 

        AGRICULTURAL FARMING.  Till, side band, or broadcast 1 to 2.5 tons per acre and water thoroughly.

 

CAUTION: Water must be added shortly after application, because the product will adsorb existing water out of the soil
            and create a dry condition that may kill the plant.
 

RECOMMENDED TESTING LARGE AREAS

Several test plots, ideally 10 foot by 10 foot should be marked out with stakes, and different amounts of the product should be used to determine the ideal application rate. For 100 square feet (10 x 10), 4.6 pounds would represent 1 ton per acre, 9.2 pounds would be 2 tons per acre, etc. For certain high value crops and especially for sandy soils up to 10 tons of product are used per acre. In hydroponics application and specialized applications, as much as 90% of the product is mixed with 10% of the soil by volume.
