Your plant can’t function without enzymes. Though the plant does create its own, this takes time and energy. Supplementing enzymes will instead start to increase root growth and metabolic reactions in your plants for faster nutrient uptake. Enzymes also aid in the breakdown of old roots and plant matter that, at the very least, is useless and wasted root space where new roots can grow. Enzymes operate as a lock and key, with specific enzymes performing and unlocking specific nutrients and/or breaking down specific plant matter into usable, bioavailable nutrients and micronutrients.
