Organic Roots2Shoots contains Amino Acids, Organic Acids, and our proprietary Cold Homogenized Fish, which supports the Root System, Shoot System, and Secondary Metabolite production. In propagation and the vegetative phase, it also works as a root accelerant up to day 20 of flower, and from day 21 on, it supports only flowering for amino acid and secondary metabolite production.
**Amino Acids are so available that we do not recommend more than 1 mL of Roots2Shoots per gallon of water. Too much nitrogen can inhibit flower growth. You don't want a deep dark forest green leaf, especially at the start of flower, as it can delay flowering and create smaller bud sizes. We recommend watching your plants, and if the leaves are too dark green, cut the application of nitrogen down, if using added nutrients a week before flower; or at the start of flower day 1, put in 24 hours of darkness to have the plant override the nitrogen uptake and start the proper chemical reactions. **
Due to the nature of this product also having a small water-holding effect GLB recommends using from after day 10for seed germination or as a pre-plant application indoors. We have growers that have used 0.25-0.5 mL as soon as day 4-5, but there are so many variations between environment and inputs, to be safe, we recommend using from day 10-12 at 0.5 ml per gallon of water Every Other Day or as needed, and moving up to 0.5-1 mL at day 15 after germination. This will expand roots.
This still can be used as an organic clone dip, but if you currently use a hormone-based clone dip, you can still use it and just add Roots2Shoots into the Cloning Solution or water.
If organic cloning, add 1 mL Roots2Shoots to the shot glass and dip a 45-degree angle cut-end of the clone directly into the undiluted product and place it in the medium.
We recommend using 1 mL Roots2Shoots and 1 mL of Enhance MC microbial per gallon of water as the only nutrients needed for cloning. If a large root mass starts to create leaf deficiencies, you can add a second 1 mL of Roots2Shoots for additional nutritional value per gallon of water.
Roots2Shoots will help with seedlings and cloning, and some even put into their easy cloners if they keep their water temperature at 68 degrees or lower, as it is less likely to cause biofilm over those temperatures. However, as there is fish biology, which has a rooting benefit, plus using Enhance MC, the higher the temperature, the higher chance for biofilm.
Side by Side with ANY Fish-Based Amendment
Veg & Flower
Growers, not looking to rootbound their pots, will use it into the first or second week of the final transplanted pot, then resume using it as an amino acid and secondary metabolite amendment from day 21 of flower on to raise the quality of the final flower.
Those that are looking to create roots to feed Daily would use continually throughout Veg and Flower. Those that want the root mass, but want to keep to an Every Other Day feeding could still use continually, but in conjunction with Liquid Organic Matter to expand the root mass, and slow the watering back to an Every Other Day feed. This occurs as Liquid Organic Matter will coat roots with a high AEC (Anion Exchange Capacity) and CEC (Cation Exchange Capacity), which will bond with the negatively and positively charged elements, holding more water in the root zone, and effectively keeping nutrients in the rhizosphere.
Amino Acid & Secondary Metabolite Amendment
When used as an amendment, it ramps up the health of the plant from veg through flower, and due to the root accelerant action in the Vegetative state, some growers, especially organic soil growers, are not trying to rootbound their pots, so we recommend stopping and then restarting on Day 21 of Flower until the last week before Harvest. Roots2Shoots would be used at the same rates as in the Vegetative stage above. The biology of the fish, as well as several natural elements, help in raising the secondary metabolites of the plant.
