Day One
Happy New Year

 

HydroRush Garden Spout Gang

January 1 2012. What better time to start our "Root Growth" Documentation than the first of the year.

On the right from The Garden Spout are: Hank Carver (back; Owner) and Kevin Price (front right; Knowledgeable Good-Guy and Project Manager). Alex Grossi from Sunlight Supply also stopped by to help us "Toast-In" the New Year and inaugurate our Growing Comparisons Documentation.

The following is what we hope to accomplish and objectively document over an eight (8) week period:

 

Objective: Visual Documentation of Bright White Roots and Data to compare HydroRush Treated vs. Untreated

 

Testing (Normal Conditions)

  1. Bright White Roots
  2. "True" Hydroponics vs. Soil (media)

Materials:

  1. 135 Pepper Plants
  2. Soil:
  3. Nutrient Solution 1
    8 plants treated
    8 plants untreated

    Nutrient Solution 2
    8 plants treated
    8 plants untreated

  4. Hydroponics (true):
  5. Nutrient Solution 1
    1 plant treated
    1 plant untreated

    Nutrient Solution 2
    1 plant treated
    1 plant untreated

  6. Soilless (media):
  7. Nutrient Solution 1
    1 plant treated
    1 plant untreated

    Nutrient Solution 2
    1 plant treated
    1 plant untreated


Testing Protocols: (Measurements)

  1. Eight (8) week period
  2. Record Environment (Materials): Measurements
    • Nutrients used
    • Date of nutrient changes
    • Record Date & Electrical Conductivity (EC) levels

    • Temperature reading (if available)
    • Light reading (if available)

  3. Minimum measurements once per week (may be daily for the first four weeks)
    • Photograph root growth

    • Measure vegetative growth

  4. Submit plant root samples to independant lab for nutrient and dry weight analysis (if resources are available)
