Wazzup everybody!

I'm new here!

Into to my fifth DWC with very mixed results.

I'm running a sterile DWC, any benefits of foliar feeding Rhizotonic in the veg stage?
Or is it a complete waste?

@smoouth-d welcome to Percy’s. I’m not a DWC grower and although I think I know the correct answer, I’ll let someone with experience answer that one

Well @monkeydo you may as well answer because I'm not familiar with the product and I've never had to foliage spray in hydro, so you know more about it. The plant should be getting everything it needs through the roots so I don't know why you'd need to foliage spray except for pest. IDK good luck

Thanks man and thanks for listening to the show.

 

Ok @woodi2, I’m familiar with the product lol.

Since Rhizotonic is bacterial in nature, adding it to a sterile system would definitely throw a wrench into the works but that’s not your question. While I’ve seen growers foliar feed Rhizo with some success, it would be risky because of the chance of contamination of the sterile res. If you try it, be sure to completely isolate your res and root zone to avoid infection. To quote our DWC guru, it’s like playing with gasoline around a lit match. Might work but there are risks. If the label does not specifically say it’s for hydro application, it’s a huge risk and apparently some that are labeled are a big risk too depending on the circumstances.

@smoouth-d - Rhizotonic contains the root stimulating vitamins B1 and B2, and the root strengthening hormone, Oligosaccharide. With bigger, healthier roots, your plants will able to absorb more nutrients and support larger plants. Overall, your plants will be stronger and healthier.

Rhizotonic can be used at any time in a plant's life to relieve stress and encourage root growth. To use as a foliar spray add Rhizotonic to water at a rate of 4ml/litre and stir well. Spray on cuttings 1-6 times per day.

RHIZOTONIC softens up the seed skin, making it easier for the seed to burst and germinate. Enhances overall plant growth and chemical reactions in the plant to ensure a healthier, powerful and stronger plant.

Another great product from CANNA is CANNAZYM. - It prevents root rot ... Dead roots form an ideal environment for moulds. They are a threat to the healthy roots. The moulds cause stress to the entire plant and stunts any new growth. Also, CANNAZYM prevents rotting, so there is no formation of toxic substances and the risk of a disease is considerably reduced.

I use 25ml to 1000ml of water. It ph's to 6.0 for foliar spray.. once a week.

@monkeydo Thanks for your response!

This we're my thought also. Would be awesome if one could hack the system and get the best of beneficial while still in a sterile  system Thumbs Up  .

 

Wazzup my man @grow4twenty!

Thank you for spreading the knowledge.

Do you notice any difference when using Rhizotonic? More vigorous, faster growth? Anything.

Got this idea a week ago and can't shake it off.

Guess I'm gonna have to try it. Fist Bump

I certainly am not a hydro guy, but I thought Hydroguard was filled with beneficials for the root zone.

@im_sparky - You are either going to have a STERIL REZ (Athena Cleanse etc.) or a REZ full of Beneficials. Hydroguard etc. is used for that kind of REZ.
