Description

Biocast+ is a concentrated liquid vermicast biostimulant. That means that it’s an extract of worm cast (worm poo) which you add to water for convenient and flexible application to plants, in order to improve their health. It comes in two parts.

Part A
Part A is a living liquid with all the goodness of worm cast. Our production process focuses on proliferating beneficial microbes and enhancing natural plant-stimulating compounds which are created by the worms and microbes. It contains:


  • High counts of beneficial, plant-relevant fungi, bacteria and protozoa. Think of these as the workforce for your plant, shuttling nutrients, competing with microbial pests, and creating a favourable soil environment. They are fully stabilised and in a semi-dormant state in the Biocast bottle.

  • Fungally-dominant. Generally fungus (such as mycorrhizal fungi) is the microbial group most damaged and depleted in our growing environments, giving plants a positive response when it is added back in.

  • Plant-stimulating growth hormones. These are hormones which encourage plant growth, for example by stimulating new root growth.

  • Enzymes. These are released by the microbes to dissolve minerals and make them plant available.

  • Autoinducers. These are signalling molecules used for microbe-microbe and microbe-plant communication.

  • High amounts of fulvic acid. Fulvic acid helps to convey minerals through the cell wall, enabling more efficient utilisation by the plant, making it ideal for foliar application.

  • Small quantities of nutrients, in plant-available forms. This is not a fertiliser. The point is to use the microbes and their byproducts to unlock the nutrients already in the soil in a balanced way that is right for the plant. This makes Biocast safe to use on all plants, even natives.

  • No other additives – all compounds are the work of the worm and associated microbes. We’re not second guessing Nature!


Part B
Part B is a biological catalyst to wake the microbes from dormancy and put them in a state of proliferation at the time of application. It consists of a complex protein to feed the fungi, and a complex carbohydrate to feed the bacteria. All ingredients are naturally derived and certified organic.

Please note: that due to quarantine restrictions BioCast can only be shipped to NSW, Queensland, Victoria, NT, SA and ACT.

  • All orders over $400.00 +GST it will be delivered free of charge (ensuring that the goods you have purchased are not bulky^)

Stock Control & Pricing Breaks

Our webstore now indicates an approximate level of items in stock. This is indicated as quantity breaks as follows: 1+, 6+, 12+, 36+, 100+, 250+, 500+, 1000+, 2000+ and 3000+. For example: if we have 5 ARS Florist Scissors in stock this would display as 1+ — if there are 47 in stock it will indicate 36+. As another example: if we have 14,960 Fluted Tree Guards in stock this would indicate as 3000+. The quantity also indicates the number of items as described by the product description; so Florist Scissors are sold individually whereas the 10L Carton Tree Guard is sold in boxes of 150 – in the later case 100+ items refers to 100+ boxes of 150 (or over 15,000 Carton Tree Guards in stock).

Please note: our webstore stock levels are accurate to within the last hour; if you order an item that has since sold out, we will promptly notify you as to when your order will be fulfilled. Some items may be indicated as Special Order items or display a custom message as to when stock is due.

Pricing breaks: many items in our store display pricing breaks. The number of items indicated in pricing breaks can vary a lot between different products. Often with horticulture tools such as secatuers and loppers, the pricing breaks may relate to the number of items in a box or total number of items in a carton; so if you need several secateurs, and order per box or carton, you save more as we save time packing your order. Items such as tree guards, bamboo canes and hardwood stakes often have price breaks set to fill a standard palette size; thus savings or efficiency gains are made in the storage and transport of these items.
