Whoo buddy! So you’re ready to break out the big guns?
Frequently touted as “Lawn Joo-Joo” and “Unicorn Pee” by myself and other members of the Lawn Care Nut community - these N-Ext products are the real deal.
Many of our newly minted Lawn Care Nuts ask, what do bio-stimulants do?
And that’s a good question.
In a nutshell, they supercharge your lawn growth, improve soil chemistry, and stimulate roots, rhizomes, and stolons in your grass.
This happens because they optimize and unlock nutrients in the soil so that your turf roots can pull out more naturally existing soil nutrients.
And at the same time, they create an ecosystem that self sustains cohesively and needs very little outside input other than the occasional dusting of nutrients.
The Bio-Stim Pack is the "starter pack" of N-Ext products designed to get you moving in the right track towards more healthy, optimized soil.
In the Bio-Stimulant Pack you’ll get:
- N-Ext RGS (1 gallon)
- N-Ext Humic12 (1 gallon)
- N-Ext Micro Greene 0-0-2 (1 gallon)
- N-Ext Air8 0-0-5 (1 gallon)
Here’s a brief description of what is happening with these products. After you read I’m sure you’ll see why we call it “Lawn Joo-Joo”.
RGS - Stands for Root Growth Stimulator and that’s exactly what it does.
This product is packed with hormones from sea kelp that stimulate roots and stolons/rhizomes coupled with chelating Humic Acid.
It’s truly the backbone of the Bio-Stim program, hands down, and has the highest concentration of Sea Kelp hormones in the line. It’s never a bad time to apply RGS to your soil. If you want to stimulate roots, rhizomes and/or stolons (depending on grass type) then RGS is the best place to start!
Humic12 - This is the carbon powerhouse in the line.
If you have “bad soil” then you want this high concentration of Humic Acid to really jumpstart the soil life and start pulling natural nutrients from that “bad soil”.
The benefits of Humic12 are:
- Increased root growth
- Increased chlorophyll content
- Increased nutrient uptake
- Improved soil structure
- Improved plant quality
Now if you’ve ever done a soil test you know that we care about the macronutrients and micronutrients in the soil.
The macronutrients N-P-K (Nitrogen-Phosphorus-Potassium) we can get from fertilizers.
But what about micronutrients?
That’s where the MicroGreene comes in.
MicroGreene gives us Magnesium, Sulfur, Iron, Manganese, and Zinc and is the perfect micro stack to hit all of your bases.
Plus when you throw’er down it gives you a visual response in the lawn within just a few days.
Typically the lawn turns quite dark blue-green from the heavier applications of 9 oz/gallon/1,000 sq ft.
Air-8 - Liquid Aeration
What if I told you that mechanical aeration isn’t the best way to loosen up the soil and allow grass roots to spread? Blasphemy, right?
If the lawn care world was the Catholic Church I’d be kicked out quicker than Martin Luther.
But think about it like this, the purpose of aeration is to produce more surface area in the soil, right?
Air-8 does that by driving down into the soil and breaking up bonds between all the molecules down there creating space. Every bond that is broken creates more air space (aka greater soil surface area) where grass roots can then spread and grow.
Now, I do still recommend mechanical aeration as a way to make a good seed bed if you are doing an overseeding. Poking all those holes really does help keep everything from washing away. Plus, running an aerator is a butt-kicking that everyone needs to experience at least once in their life! However, if you are not seeding, then just spray down Air-8 and you will get great results and never need to rent an aerator again.
Depending on mix rates this Bio-Stimulant Pack will be enough for a 5,000 sq ft lawn and last 1 year (with a little leftover) if you are aggressive.
You'll receive a box with 4 Gallons (1 of each).
1 gallon = 128 oz

Suggested application rates are:
- RGS - 3 oz/1,000 sq ft
- Humic12 - 6 oz/1,000 sq ft
- Air-8 - 6 oz/1,000 sq ft
- MicroGreene - 9 oz/1,000 sq ft
For a 5,000 sq ft lawn:
You will get 8.5 total applications of RGS:
- 3 oz/1,000 sq ft x 5 = 15 oz
- 128 oz/15 oz = 8.5 total applications
You will get ~4 applications of Humic12 and Air-8:
- 6 oz/1,000 sq ft x 5 = 30 oz
- 128 oz/30 oz = 4.26 total applications
You will get ~3 applications of MicroGreene:
- 9 oz/1,000 sq ft x 5 = 45 oz
- 128 oz/30 oz = 2.85 total applications

Also, all of the N-Ext products are safe to use around pets. The only exceptions are the packs containing the 7-0-0 Humic Acid which can stain the feet of pets and can be tracked into the house by said pets if they walk on the lawn if it is still wet from an application.
This will not harm any pets, but it is not “carpet friendly.” As with all lawn applications, it is best to let it dry before allowing the pets out on it.
