    Not sure if you will "need" a root stimulator, but using one will certainly help. More roots will help you grow more flower in the long run and Idon't believe it would ever hurt you grow.

    iONic is correct, you don’t need it, but it definitely will improve yields. Remember shoot growth (stems & leaves) is directly proportionate to root growth. The more big healthy roots, the bigger healthier plant.

      Personally I use rapid start, but there are plenty of other good options.

    Grow 2 plants of the same strain and use Rapid Start on one and not on the other. That will show you if it makes a difference for you.

      I think Airplane had a post on here today about some other root simulators that were offering a $15 sample pack. See if you can find that post.

    I wouldn't do a grow without it! I love my rapid start! Killer roots =  killer plants! I use that shit throughout my whole veg period!

    I''ve switched from Rapid Start to House & Garden's Roots Excelurator. Rapid Start is less expensive but more is required making the cost comparable.  GH developed Rapid Start to compete with Roots Excelurator and both seem to justify the cost..  It's my only change to the GH Flora lineup outside of Great White.

    You ask "how do I know if i need a root stimulator."The only root stimulato i have ever used is root tone to make clones years ago.I dont think you need one per say its a option reading thes respounces i think i might start using them but for a faster start not becous i need them.But i like experimenting and im cheep so my next clone project i plan on trying alow vera plant. Might try it on seeds to.
