    Root Xtender isn't dissolvable. Recharge is. You use the Root Xtender when germinating or transplanting so it touches the roots. Recharge, Mycos WP (wettable powder), or Great White that disolves in water can be applied after the plant is in its final pot. The mycorrhizae and benefical bacteria needs to be in the root zone touching the roots to break down the nutrients and expand the Ph range of the plant. Recharge is also packed with molasses to feed the bennies. It also has folvic and humic acids. Recharge is just my favorite soil inoculant. I would assume the others work just as well. You don't want to add Ph up or Ph down to this mixture because it will kill the mycorrhizae and bennies! I never Ph my inoculant waterings but I only inoculate the soil 3 times a grow (once to water it into a new pot after transplanting, once a week before flipping to flower, and once on top of my first initial flush). I also bought the Root Xtender from Nirvana once. Since I have used Mycos and Azos. I hope this helps. Good luck and happy growing my friend!

      I would just finish her on out and start reading and learning now for the next grow. In my opinion, the best way to handle a problem like this is to start off right and avoid the problem completely next grow. Taking precautions beforehand is always better...  more

    Did you fix your light problem?...never, not once have I seen root problems bleach the top of plants...it isn't presenting as a root issue...you got great advice from a member who uses same brand, different model...who told you he had the exact same issue, and the remedy was raising his light!...I'm not an LED guy, but if you contact the manufacturer, I'm sure that 15" above canopy is not the recommended distance. ...address the most probable reason for your issue

      Lock out is a root problem. An mycorrhizae inoculant will usually fix it.

    NO! Nirvana's product will not work - at your point in the cultivation cycle justr flush till harvest   Re-chard should be used till weeks middle/late flower   - here at some good proucts for rooting: Great White / Myco-chum (by plant seccess ? extreme garding procucts (Azro's. wp, ect)  What caused you root issues ? Too soon to use two different products, each needs at least 1 week to  "work" as mentionned to fix -flush

      What root issues?

  • 19.621

    You have more going on here than just a root issue. You are also either under or over watering according to the way your leaves look. You seem to have nutrient lockout as well because of the darkness of the leaves. I would flush the plants and give them a less amount of nutrients at the correct ph. This should fix your plants enough to get them to the finish line imo.  Peace
