Root Boosters: Do They Work?

Root Boosters: Do They Work?

Alex Grady

Everyone's using them, but do root boosters really work? We've put our bestselling one (SHOGUN Katana Roots) to the test! How good is it? Does it really work? Let's find out.

The Test: Root Booster Vs. Water

To find out if root boosters really work, we put our bestselling one to the test - SHOGUN Katana Roots. It's one of SHOGUN's signature stimulants.

Growers claim it boosts root growth, health and branching. But how good is it? Let's find out.

What We Did

We decided to run a simple A vs. B test! 10 cuttings were propagated with Katana Roots, and 10 with plain old water.

Step 1:

Cuttings treated with Clonex Rooting Gel

20 cuttings of roughly the same size were taken from a basil plant were treated with Clonex Rooting Gel.

Step 2:

Aeroponic Propagator

We filled two X-Stream Aeroponic Propagators – one with tap water (left), the other with 5ml/L of Katana Roots (right).

Step 3:

Aeroponic Propagator

Lids were put on, vents were closed, a 125W CFL was positioned 1m above the propagators.

The Results

We monitored cuttings closely over one's what happened.

Day 5

Roots in 5 days

We have roots! Cuttings rooted with Katana Roots (right) are steaming ahead.

Day 7

Roots in 7 days

It’s a no-brainer! Cuttings dosed with SHOGUN Katana Roots are longer & denser.

Final Verdict

Roots with Katana Roots

Katana Roots is the boss! With results like that in only 1 week, imagine the impact Katana Roots has on a whole veg cycle.
