Help With Rapid Start Testing.

by Screwstick about June 29 - report

I have 3 potential mothers growing it coco they are 14 days from seed today under a dimmable 700PAR LED.

The smallest one in the back, Runt, is Carmelicious from Bull Dog, the mid size plant in front is Pineapple Chunk from Barneys and bigger one on the left is Chocolate Mint OG from Humboldt. With the exception of Rapid Start they have been fed per the GH feed chart for the Flora Series Trio plus some Orca.

Just for fun I want to do some testing on Rapid Start, yes I know its not a perfect test but if it boosts the runt that will tell me something.

So my question is should I test it on just the runt or test it on the runt and the mid size Pineapple Chunk?

Opinions please

The best of the 3 will get clones cut for the RDWC.

    Just doing it on the runt isn't a fair test after all it's a runt.I would do the same strain, preferably by clone and use something else other then rapid start on one of them. That's a fair test!

      I agree, and clones will be the next test. I think this time I will use it on the runt and the Pineapple Chunk, it cant hurt anything. I am a little biased though, I kind of want the Chocolate Mint OG or the Chunk in the RDWC.
      Have you grown any of these strains?

    Pineapple chunk photo from Barneys and it was a really nice strain to grow!Solid yielder with solid nugs!The one I did wasn't really tall but very thick.

      Cool, I dont want a strain that is normally tall in this next grow. The wife wont let me raise the floor in the dining room so I have more height in the grow area.

    I agree with Pipeman on this, you need to do it on several plants of the same strain in order to get some good results. Imo you would see some good improvements with the plants that you gave the Rapid Start to because it is a good root stimulator imo. This will be fun to watch no matter how you decide to do it though. Good luck, and keep us posted.  Peace

    On the other hand these plants may be ready to harvest before this stuff  arrives. Why does everything going through the Hyattsville, MD USPS stall there?

    I know it is a great root addative! I would use it on all 3 of them myself. I think you would need clones of about the same size to do an accurate test really.

      I just not convinced, sure everyone that uses it has a great root ball but would they still have it without RS?

      I didn't have a root ball that I couldn't stick my finger in using #5 pots before I started using it and now I use #7 pots and in the 5th week of flower after an 8 week veg and I can't stick a pencil in my pot/roots they are so tight out around the edge o...  more

      Sure go for it, are they under 12/12 light? After about the 3rd week of flower I think the roots are about done expanding but I would think the stretch above is close to the same as the below. Thanks and let us know

    so you want to boost the runt as proof that Rapid Start works? like everyone says, clones of the same strain and size would tell you more but im interested in the results!

    Good luck!
