Why buy PepperHead live plants?

How are our plants superior to any other nursery?

The roots of our Moruga Scorpion plants are inoculated with Endomycorrhizal fungi* and beneficial bacteria** which produces a more drought and pest resistant adult plant. Also, more nutrients are available to the plant because of the mycorrhizae’s symbiotic relationship with the roots as well as reducing transplant shock. It is important to have this inoculation at germination so the plant is colonized for life. It is much more difficult or even impossible to inoculate after a juvenile stage. This will make our Reaper plants grow larger and produce more peppers than if purchased from anywhere else.

Below is a microscopic view of mycorrhizae attached to a root taken from a BBC News article.
