Granules already contain several varieties of trichodermas, you could add more I suppose, granules also contains nitrogen fixing, phosphate mining, yeasts that feed other beneficial fungi and bacteria as well as endo and ecto mychorrizal species.
Do you know if neem cake would be detrimental to the Trichodermas OT1,
was planning to use the cake for the fungas gnats which
always come supplied with JAB with JI
did ask the supplier( Mistry) but he refered me back
to his supplier , also emailed a company in India,
no reply as yet.
I use Mistry's neem for fungus gnats, in fact I popped into his shop only the other day for a new tub. I've not seen any detrimental effects. I know neemcake helps and supports most soil microlife, I think it unlikely it would harm trichodermas.
What was his supplier name?

ive just got granules for the first time , but have recently potted up into final pots .
I know this should be used AT potup time , but is there any way I can use some on plants Already potted up , ie make a root drench?, make small holes in the compost and add granules into the holes??
any advice 'd be very welcome.
I hope I don't just have to wait til next time.
Its best used when potting on from a small rootball dusting the roots on the surface of the ball.
You can get some inoculation by making holes with a pencil and dropping a tiny pinch of granules down each hole. I mean a tiny pinch not filling the hole with granules, that would be a total waste.
