One of my all time favorite liquid organic nutrients is from Roots Organics. This company uses top quality inputs that help create some of the best tasting fruits and flowers in my opinion. Their products are all CDFA certified which is an organic certification from California. Their testing is very stringent and more difficult to get than your traditional OMRI certification. I feel this is one reason why Roots Organics is a bit better than some of the other organic nutrients I’ve used in the past.
Their base nutrients are the Buddha Grow and Buddha Bloom. The Buddha Grow consists of bat guano, kelp extract, soy extract, molasses, worm castings, and yucca extract. The Buddha Bloom has the same composition except it also includes rock phosphate to help increase the size of your fruits and flowers. The bat guano is a source of nitrogen, the kelp extract has B vitamins that help to reduce stress, the soy extract is another source of nitrogen, while the worm castings add beneficial bacteria and trace minerals to your plants. Last but not least, the yucca extract is a natural wetting agent.
Roots Organics also has several additives to help maximize your yields. One of my favorite additives is their Trinity. It contains all of your carbohydrates which are the building blocks of your soil. Everytime I water with Trinity my leaves stand straight up toward the light which means the plants are extremely healthy.
Their Ancient Amber is also a great source of natural nitrogen that is really only needed during the vegetative growth. Nettle weed is the main ingredient used in the Ancient Amber which naturally contains high amounts of nitrogen. Extreme Serene is another great growth nutrient focused on vegetative growth. It contains five different species of seaweed which helps to reduce stress and help to uptake nutrients. It also has a biomass of cyanobacteria or spirulina which is a great source of amino acids.
When it comes to plants’ flowering needs, I also like to use the Roots HPK to help increase the density of my flowers. It is made with bat guano, rock phosphate, and langbeinite. Langbeinite is a potassium magnesium sulfate mineral which helps to increase the size and density of your flowers.
Overall, I feel the Roots Organic liquid line is one of the better organic nutrients on the market. I get great root growth and development, along with denser fruits and flowers versus some of the other liquid organics that I’ve used before. Happy growing, and stop on by the shop with questions, or if you’re looking for advice, tips, or other recommendations!
