How does Re-Gen work?


Lignin & cellulose degrading microbes

Break through the toughest parts of leftover stalks and stems to access the valuable nutrients they contain.


Organic acid producing microbes

Enhance bioavailability of nutrients and inhibit growth of pathogenic microbes.


Plant-associated microbes

Form symbiotic relationships with plants to facilitate efficient nutrient uptake and support the plant immune system.

Utilizing a microbial inoculant specifically designed for breaking down cannabis plant matter will help growers repurpose their leftover biomass as a fertilizer, reducing their fertilizer cost, waste removal costs, while also enhancing nutrient uptake to promote higher plant yields.

Re-Gen FAQ

How do I know this works?

Our products are developed through extensive research, and have been vetted by University Labs and growers across wide-ranging geographies, cultivation types and scales. You can learn more about each in the scientific paper published by University of Vermont, and in the pictures, data, and quotes shared by wonderful growers. 

We know that seeing is believing, so don’t hesitate to request a free sample, or send us your questions.

Are these products safe?

The well-being of people, plants, and our planet are our top priority and this informs all aspects of the way we develop, produce, sell, and use our products. 

All microbes in our inoculants are naturally occurring and Generally Recognized as Safe. Any research indicating that a microbe is potentially dangerous means it is immediately eliminated as a candidate to be included in any of our products.

Is Re-Gen basically composting?

We love composting, and understanding how it works most effectively (as well as anaerobic fermentation and other organics recycling techniques) was a key part of developing Re-Gen. Traditional composting invites the microbes required to breakdown organic matter.

Imio Re-Gen directly introduces the microbes that are best at recycling plant stalks and leftover biomass which makes a huge differences in the process and the impact of the output:

  • Speed & efficiency of the process: recycling with Re-Gen takes 2-4 weeks to produce usable material, where composting stalks can take over a year
  • The impact of the output: plants treated with Re-Gen recycled material grew 40% larger than premium compost over a 2 month period

Is Root the same as the other cloning products on the market?

Root is composed of naturally occurring microbes that naturally produce plant hormones and stimulate the plant’s ability to do the same. 

Indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) is a rooting and plant growth hormone naturally produced by plants and certain microbes. Popular rooting gels replicate this hormone with a synthetically derived version, 1-Napthaleneacetic acid (NAA). These compounds differ slightly as shown in the diagram to the left, resulting in less effective plant interactions. 

Synthetic rooting products impact humans as well due to carcinogenic and mutagenic components.
