    Im looking for a DIY Rooting booster that will work for DWC [Heavy 16 Roots or GH RapidStart for example]. I have found this one but I have found contradictory things about running humic in hydroponics.

    https://www.rollitup.org/t/make-your-own-natural-pgr-veg-root-booster.875628/

    I have recipes I’ll be using with jacks hydroponic formula and all the ingredients to make 3 products are;
    magnesium sulfate, monoammonium phosphate, Monopotassium phosphate, potassium sulfate, calcium nitrate, & Dark Brown Sugar. (Terpinator, MOAB, Hammerhead.) I can post links if anyone is interested, as well as the link on using the MOAB/ Hammerhead combo for bloom boosters.

    Was going to use a sweet raw recipe but my buddy uses terpinator so I’m going to try it. Sweet raw is just cane sugar instead of dark brown and you’d drop the potassium sulfate.

    I’ll be breeding bennies (Heisenberg Tea) & using a Silicate alt. Too

    Just need a rooting booster if anyone has one worth testing I’d appreciate it.

    The ingredients for RapidStart are:
    Ammonium molybdate, ammonium nitrate, monopotassium phosphate and potassium nitrate.

    You can buy them all on amazon.

    Going to do the math once I find the ratio and test it out.

    Is there any specific mixing or lab equipment or fermintation process that might hinder the efficiency and shelf life or these diy products ? Just wandering .

    I’m going to have to learn if there’s a specific order I should mix these ingredients and how much of each chemical required. Some chemicals react differently to eachother.

    http://gh.growgh.com/docs/MSDS/RapidStart.pdf

    This has the information about the product. But as far as I can tell all the components of RapidStart are non-organic and can be bought in their crystal form on amazon except for the ammonium nitrate but you can get it online.

    Yeah something tells me there is a specific fermintation process.

    And even tho you have an ingredient list. It doesnt mean that they used that in crystal form.

    Im not sure on this but id say they use raw products like kelp in the ferment , rather than a concentrate crystal form.

    Do they just list the the the chemical names for the ingredients or do they just mix up some concentrates and bottle it?

    Right it looks like it has organic components but that link says all components were synthetic.
    I can’t find a single recipe for a root booster anywhere.

    Roger, I definitely will bud. Spread the knowledge. It should be available for people who want it. Hopefully someone who knows more about chemistry will stop by. I just returned to school to learn this stuff so it’s still all pretty new to me.

    This video says GH is made from;
    - Plant extracts
    - amino acids
    -purified mineral nutrients so?
    - kelp blend extract
    - the crystals
    - the amino acids would be the difficult part. Another article I read says it sources it’s leonardites from over 300 sources.
