Hi.

After my first grow I had look at my root system and seen the root system was not what I was hoping to see.

So any tips or products that help with making a healthy vibrant root ball.

I'm growing autoflowers in biobizz and using the tripart nutrients.

Thanks in advance for any replies

Moglo

Ecothrives microbe tea is good mate, but the best thing i have seen for root growth is Rhizotonic from canna. Thats stuff smashes it, but its pricey! Great white from advanced nuits is also very good.

I use Kangaroots from Fox Farms for a root booster on my seedlings early on and also at any transplanting or potting up. Another tip is to make sure your plants are cycling through wet/dry so that early on the roots are forced to look for water and spread throughout the pot. If you overwater early on the root system won’t develop properly. Hope some of this helps.

good root food suggestions above 👍

to add

Make sure you’ve enough aeration material (for max oxygen) in your root zone  (add extra perlite or similar) 

ensure you’re not overwatering ?? as this slows root growth hugely

fabric pots and airports help air prune roots causing more fine roots to grow which can aid root development 

Aerating the food/ water prior to watering can also aid root development

I used to use house and garden root Excalibur I think was called .. was always rated highly, and priced highly too! 

Good luck 👍

 

Time to pop some more beans 😗

I like coating the smallest pot I am using with microriza forcing the roots to search for it, once developed they burst into the new pots nicely.

All that matters is understanding and extending consciousness within everyone through imagination.

Light mix with low food, underwater (but when you water really soak the root mass)  soak the root mass and pot up in dry soil.

Works wonders I can pot up in less than a week.
