You can use Rootamentary early in plant development as a root optimizer and use it throughout vegetative growth to ensure massive roots. It can also be applied moderately during early flowering and fruiting as a supplemental nitrogen boost. Rootamentary can be used during all stages of plant development. It provides optimal nutrition for root growth, because without massive roots, you don’t get big crops. Used moderately during early flowering, Rootamentary will support flower and fruit development. The larger the roots, the better the nutrient uptake, and the bigger the crop. It also promotes a bloom of nitrogen-fixing bacteria that takes nitrogen out of the air and turns it into plant-available nitrogen. These natural soil bacteria provide an additional bonus by creating natural plant growth regulators (PGRs) that tell your plants to grow. They’re like natural growth hormones for your plants, made by bacteria already present in the soil! Carefully formulated to increase plant establishment and support vigorous root development.
Derived from :
Fish Protein Hydrolysate, Urea, Phosphoric Acid,Potassium Hydroxide, Ferrous Sulfate, Zinc Sulfate and Manganese Sulfate.
For Soil Well Amended with Minerals and Organic Matter
Use any brand Cal/Mag as directed throughout vegetative growth and week 1 of flower.
Add supplemental organic nitrogen as needed in mid/late veg through early flower (e.g. top dress a high nitrogen amendment [like fish meal or bat guano] or water in 5-1-1 fish hydrolysate).

Q: What is in Rootamentary and how does it work?
A: Rootamentary utilizes a specific mineral balance to naturally encourage rapid root development while being boosted by natural plant-derived growth promoting compounds. It combines nitrogen, phosphoric acid, potash and micro-minerals to increase plant growth response and encourage an optimal root zone. Rootamentary is used as a plant feed, with or without other nutrients. It can also be used as a vegetative foliar spray. We recommend using Rootamentary in combination with our Sea Green compost extract.
Q: How do Sea Green and Rootamentary work together?
A: Sea Green offers a diverse culture of bacteria, and the nutrient profile of Rootamentary selects the nitrogen fixers from the Sea Green culture. These bacteria convert atmospheric Nitrogen (N2) into plant available nitrates (NO3), and nitrogen-fixing bacteria create “hormones” or natural plant growth regulators (PGRs) that promote root growth.
Q: During what part of the growing cycle should you use Rootamentary?
A: The sooner the better. You can use it as a seed soak with Sea Green at 1mL/gallon, or in your cloning solution at 0.25mL/gallon also with 0.25mL/gallon Sea Green. As soon as roots start developing, water in at 1mL/gallon. As the plant gets more established, you can up the dosage as high as 3mL/gallon if you’re not watering in any other micro-nutrient products (other fertilizers ok). Continue using throughout vegetative growth. If you want your plants to continue to get larger, continue through early flower, if you want them to remain short and stocky, stop using Rootamentary when flowering begins and switch to foliar applications of True Blooms.
Q: Is Rootamentary a standalone nutrient? Does it contain calcium?
A: Rootamentary doesn’t have calcium. If you use it as a standalone nutrient, you should also have a cal-mag product in your mix. Or a well amended soil with plenty of minerals, especially ample calcium.
Q: Can Sea Green and Rootamentary be used together as a foliar spray?
A: Yes. The combination of Sea Green and Rootamentary is excellent as a foliar spray for vegetative plants and seedlings/rooting cuttings. We’ve seen roots grow up and out into the air and light (in a humidity dome) when sprayed with this combination. Whatever you don’t spray, you can water in!
Q: Can Rootamentary be used for clones?
A: Rootamentary is quite concentrated, and the complex of minerals can be difficult for plants that have not yet developed roots for nutrient uptake. However, applying to rooting clones (in a cloning machine or in cubes/plugs) at 0.25mL/gallon is beneficial for accelerating rooting, initial growth, and overall flowering potential.
Q: Is Rootamentary Organic?
A: No. Rootamentary contains urea which is not allowed under organic certifications. We use a small amount of urea specifically as microbe food, NOT AS PLANT FOOD. When applied strategically as a microbe food, soil microbes quickly convert it into ammoniacal nitrogen and it is now “organic” as it has been processed by the soil food web. The problem with urea is when it is applied in high quantities for the purpose of force feeding the plants at the cost of the soil food web. At Primordial Solutions, we focus on microbiological responses in the soil, and feed the soil first and foremost. For this purpose, Rootamentary is incredibly beneficial for soil health, will not cause harmful run off, and will only support and feed diverse soil life when applied at the 1-3mL/gallon application rate. Organic certifiers had to draw the line somewhere, and in this case, they chose to not allow this substance under any circumstances, when it would have been more accurate to allow it if applied as a soil microbe food source. It is for this reason that we also encourage mixing Rootamentary with Sea Green compost extract in every application to accelerate the assimilation of urea into the soil food web.
