    Reliable supplier

    GrowLiv is always a reliable supplier of BCAs. I appreciate that they offer small, affordable quantities for the average houseplant enthusiast. I know I can have a solution to any pest problem within 24 hrs of discovering it. Fast, friendly, and quality products.

    No movement from Hypoliv

    Opened up the package and was physically looking for moving mites but could not see any. Dumped out the entire contents of the package and could see only a handful of mites. I waited till the next morning to see if I can see any because normally I would see them walking all over the edge of my beds, but no movement. The 24 hours had already passed for me to message them back! the other products I ordered were good.

    Thanks for your feedback! :)

    Controlling pests at soil level

    After 4 months of trial and monitoring, the combination of orius Insidiousus with stratiolaelaps scimitus seems to be the effective solution for controlling leaf pests (thrips and spider mites specifically) in my 160 sq ft greenhouse that I've been hoping to find. New plant growth seems more consistent and older leaves are maintaining a better show quality.
    Added bonus: fungus gnats are also reduced to insignificant numbers so no more ugly sticky traps photobombing my Instagram submissions.

    Thanks for 5-star review! We're glad to hear the OriLiv and HypoLiv combo is working well in your plants.
