I have used 75's and 300's with similar results. If anything, the 300 mg uncoated tablets help more with rooting. This is my preferred use for them. In soil I used it for overall health of plants, but in hydroponics, I use it for vigorous root stimulation.

I found that using a single tab for 2 gallons was sufficient with half a tab being the threshold for noticeable effect. Just make sure that they are uncoated tablets, as the coated kind don't work near as well.
