Frequently Asked questions

How Did MicroLife Come Into Being?

San Jacinto Environmental Supplies, the parent company of MicroLife, started from scratch in 1984 as a new lawn and garden distributor. We were taught the ‘chemical way’ and were very good at selling the very chemicals we despise today. We quickly realize that the more chemical fertilizers we sold, the more chemical pesticides we sold to the same client. Huh? Something is wrong here. Isn’t fertilizer supposed to make plants stronger and with less problems? That is when we discovered that chemical fertilizers are to plants what fast food is to humans … junk and poisons. In 1986 we started our journey of learning true plant nutrition and that naturally led us to Organics. In 1988 we started manufacturing MicroLife with the same intent then, as we have now … to make the best plant and soil food in the world.

My Dog Likes To Eat MicroLife, Why?


 This is our number one question. Our theory is dogs like MicroLife because they know MicroLife is full of the nutrition they need. The list of ingredients MicroLife uses is similar to the list of ingredients that good quality animal food uses, including digestive enzymes. MicroLife is the only fertilizer used at The Houston Zoo and it has their Veterinarian Council seal of approval.

Why Is White Fuzz Growing On My MicroLife Pellets?

That is a good sign; it shows that MicroLife is biologically active. Each pellet of MicroLife is rich in nutrition and coated with beneficial microorganisms. The fuzz is the friendly microbes doing their job.

Do I Have To Water In MicroLife After Applying?

MicroLife will not burn so you do not have to water. But watering MicroLife activates it.

Is MicroLife Safe Around Children & Pets?

MicroLife is completely safe around all life forms.

MicroLife Is More Expensive Than Other Fertilzers, Why?

We believe in feeding our soils and plants the highest nutrition possible. Read our label of ingredients. No other fertilizer includes what we do. Better quality, better results. In the long-run, MicroLife ends up being the cheapest fertilizer. MicroLife yields better plant health, more nutritious food, better soil health, fewer plant problems, reduces pesticide cost, is completely non-toxic, saves on mowing/pruning costs and reduces money spent on water.
