General Hydroponics Rapid Rooter Grow Plugs – Item of the Day — 6 Comments

  1. What brand net cups/pots did you prefer.  Also do you use Texas Tomato food or the trio you highlighted from amazon as your fluid?  Thanks


    • I use CZ net cups as they are the best I have found

      On fertilizer I use both Master Blend and Texas Tomato Food

      Neither has worked really better but the Texas Tomato Food may be better for long term use (tomatoes, peppers, etc) especially in large kratky containes, but that is just a guess. The Texas Tomato Food is easier to mix, the good news is I am going to cover it all in depth on todays show.

    • Officially one and done but I reuse them and discussed it on Friday’s show.

      I use plain old drugstore hydrogen peroxide at about 30% with water to soak and reuse.

      I reuse some with smaller root systems and I always reuse the ones that fail to germinate. Some I have used a third time they get weak by then. If they have big roots in them I use them once and compost.

  2. I’m about 3 weeks into my first try at hydroponics using Jack’s method of Rapid Rooter plugs, net pots,  aster blend mix, aluminum chaffing trays and the little indoor green house and I really love it. I’ve started a bunch of seed and am transplanting out into pots since I don’t have a way to do grow lights (no electricity yet). The only problem I’m having is that I can’t get amazon to ship the Rapid Rooter plugs to me anymore. Last month I got two packages but this month it won’t ship to my residence address anymore. Do you have a second best type of starting medium you could recommend? Thanks!

    • Finally able to order more Rapid Rooter plugs. Yeah!

      In case it ever happens again though or I want to shift to something less expensive or more reusable. Do you have a second best recommendation?

      Thanks again.
