Eco-Complete has new stuff in it?

I ordered two bags of eco complete last week for $19.99 each free two day shipping and when they came in today both bags now have a new thing on the package that says "NOW with Floraspore Root Enhancement Symbionts" Anyone know what this is and how it will help the 40 gallon breeder I'm setting up lol

They have coated the substrate Symbiotic Micro organisms in spore form.
These organisms will live on and in the plant root systems and "work'' with bacteria to enrich the growth of plants. Root symbionts are bacteria that have a symbiotic relationship with the roots of plants which (in this case?) aid in the absorption of nutrients.

I cant take credit for the answer. You can thank DeLaFe and Comet

Where did you order from, about to order some from amazon

Btw, bacter additives could be added to any substrate to seed and kick start the cycle. The selling point should really be thr color, texture and inert qualities. I heard they now offer a finner mm grain size which does sound very appealing for nano applications.

Yeah I could care less about the bacteria in it lol. That is why I'm doing like 4 bags of floramax with eco complete on top. The eco isnt as rough but it blends perfectly with the floramax
