Biobizz root juice

Im using the biobizz range and had a bottle of root juice. It seems to help the roots (but im not sure if thats just me getting better, on my 3rd crop in this setup and the plants looks better each time).

 

I just looked for some more and they want £42 for a litre. :unsure: I didnt realise it was that expensive when i bought my first bottle as i had a few hundred quids worth of kit at the same time.

 

Why is it so expensive?

 

And is there anything else, similar, organic, cheaper?

Looking at root juice it seems to be mainly humic acid and seaweed. You could buy powered humic acid and get a bottle of seaweed liquid. Both of these seem to be fairly cheap but you would have to figure the out proportions for each in relation to how much root juice you would normally use.

@trees I have tried the BioBizz root juice and (more recently) the Intense nutrients organix foundation root stim which I found to be markedly superior. One tree have it at £31.95 for 1Litre so its cheaper than the BioBizz too. Theres a 250ml option but thats £14.99 so not as good value.

 

Created cracking roots in no time at all.

I found the whole Intense Organix range better than BioBizz especially the Bloom as I only used 1ml/litre on the above ^^

I tried a little bottle of the Intense Nutrients foundation and thought it was excellent but very expensive. I got a bottle of Canna Rhizotonic to try thinking it was cheaper but I just looked and it's pretty much the same price.

 

Conclusion, root stims are really expensive aren't they!!!!!

I have tried a couple of root stims - plant magic and hesi - tbh i couldnt really tell the difference compared to some maxicrop from the garden centre.

Cheers all. Im going to take the plunge on another 500ml bottle i think. Then do a side by with and without and see if i think its worth it in the long run.

Be better to try a side by side with the maxicrop. It's cheap enough I believe, I've got a bottle but I can't recall the price, it's certainly no £30+ though.

Seaweed extract all the way.

 

Download this pdf a while ago.

I know it's not our plant but its explains all about the seaweed itself.

Thats a better idea actually. I found some for £7 a litre thats really cheap in comparison.

 

Ill get a 500ml bottle of maxicrop and 250ml biobizz instead. Do a test with maxicrop vs biobizz vs none.

I'd like to get my hands on some of this stuff for my next round of autos. 

The local grow shop has biobizz root juice, canna rhizotonic and A.N. voodoo juice. 

Can anyone vouch for any of these over the other?

I tried Growers Ark "root tonic" too - better than the BioBizz imho but not a patch on the Intense Organix.

 

I'll have to give the Maxicrop Take Root Rooting Liquid (£10 for 250ml) a go and do a side-by-side on some clones as it's slightly cheaper than Intense.

 

Envii seaweed extract is good too - buuut if you use too much you will get Polyploidy mutations so don't over do it :nerd:

Nowadays, Im using BB root juice in compost, 2 ml/L once when first potting the seeds, and then 2 ml/L again after potting up, and only occasionally in between, so the small bottle lasts ages. Based on limited experience while growing in so-and-so conditions, it seems like the root juice is doing something beneficial for root development, although it could also mean above the surface growth is slowed a bit correspondingly. However, the magnitude of improvement seems as if it could be easily trumped with suboptimal root temperature/moisture/etc.

 

Seaweed extract is good stuff in mild doses. Not sure if there is marked difference between well-established brands, in root juice, or in seaweed extract.

Rhizotonic seems really good, I've never tried the Biobizz one. I just checked the price of Voodoo Juice and well I wouldn't buy it for that, no way!
