Ask-a-Grower #178-Is Roots Excelurator worth the price?

Ask a Grower

I currently am putting together my list of nutrients to buy for growing in medium. I read Root Excelurator claims it’s second to none, but is it worth the price. I was under the assumption a rooting formula should have at least 3 necessity chemicals (forget them). I just wanted to hear your opinion if there may be a better alternative for much less that does the same thing. I was also considering inducing Humboldt’s White Window after 3-4 days of cloning.

Ask-a-Grower #174-What are some safe and effective pest control methods?

Ask a Grower

I’m growing a variety of exotic hot peppers (ghost pepper, exotic habeneros etc) outdoors on my porch. The last season I had some issues with aphids and large green worms, right now the pepper plants have dropped almost all of the leaves and are getting ready to sprout new ones for the new season. I am wondering what kind of sprays or other methods there are to control or even remove the parasites that will not kill both the pepper plants or me. [Read answer here]

Ask-a-Grower #171-How do I identify different pests?

Ask a Grower

Can you please describe your pests in more detail. How big are they? Where do they look like they are coming from? (Foliage or root zone) What color are they? Do you see any other bugs that could be their larvae? For you see any damage on the plants? The wings are longer than the black body. And so small I need a magnifying glass. I got a few hundred on the yellow & blue stickies in 20×15 room. They fly and bump into my hoods. I seem to catch a bunch and used azatrol in a hand sprayer all over. Any potential damage or signs to look for? [Read answer here]

Ask-a-Grower #169-Can I buy House and Garden part A or B seperately?

Ask a Grower

I came in wanting to buy a CoCo A&B 20L and accidentally walked out with a Bio 1 Component Soil and a CoCo B. My cousin already opened it (Bio) up and will sell it on craigslist. Is it possible to buy just the CoCo A 20L from you guys online or on the phone and have him pick it up in the store. I’m currently out of town. Otherwise I can wire him the money and do it that way. You can only buy both sets online. [Read answer here]
