It's Spring planting time!
The fastest way to plant your garden isn't always the best, and just putting your plants into the ground and giving them water doesn't always get the best results.
But there's one little thing you can do to give your plants a much needed boost when they first start out; root supplements!
What is a Root Supplement?
When it comes to plant health and development, there's three major nutrients that plants need, and you probably already know them: Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium (NPK).
But that doesn't mean that's all a plant needs to thrive, and supplementing other micronutrients and beneficial bacteria with your regular nutrients can boost plant development during specific stages.
When you want to boost your plant's root health so they grow bigger and stronger - which will always leader to bigger and stronger plants above ground - you use root supplements.
Best Root Supplements
At Cultivate we carry a wide range of root supplements, both organic and made with natural ingredients. But there's a few that we think stand out, and our customers agree.
Elite Root Ignitor
Engineered to perform, Elite Root Igniter is specifically formulated to increase root mass. Like the foundation of a house, a root mass that is thicker and spread evenly will provide stronger support.
This translates to lower stress levels on the plant and more effective absorption of both water and beneficial nutrients. Simply put, more root mass is better!
This formulation is a state-of-the-art liquid mycorrhizal inoculant. Mycorrhizae, a species of beneficial fungi, are scientifically proven to increase root mass, and lessen the damaging impacts of medium toxicity.
General Hydroponics RapidStart
RapidStart enhances your growing experience by delivering a powerful blend of premium plant extracts, amino acids, and nutrients generating explosive root growth.
This root supplement stimulates prolific root branching and development of fine root hairs that increase nutrient uptake and grow healthier, whiter roots.
Using RapidStart will make your plants explode! And you can use it during the entire growing cycle in all types of growing media, including coco.
Botanicare Rhizo Blast
Rhizo Blast from Botanicare is a powerful root developing tonic that boosts root growth.
Their proprietary formula contains a blend of seaweed, single-celled algae and other mineral nutrients that help generate robust root growth while maintaining a strong rhizosphere.
Strong Roots = Strong Plants
That's what it all comes down to in the end. Some plants have naturally strong roots that will spread throughout your soil rapidly. Others might need a little help in the beginning to get going.
But with a root supplement at the beginning and throughout your growth cycle in addition to your regular feeding regiment you can create a massive, strong and healthy root zone that will be visible in your plant size, durability and yields.
