Using Maple Syrup instead of Molasses?

I know people who use molasses in their water every other watering during the last 2 weeks of flowering. I understand this technique has been debated before on this site many times.

Regardless of whether or not this process has any benefits or not, I am curious if I could substitute syrup for molasses.

Anyone with knowledge of the subject, I'd love to hear from you.

pretty sure this isn't a good idea. At least i'm pretty sure it won't work. I'm not an expert enough to be able to explain why, but hopefully an expert will come in here and clarify the reason why :)

Maple syrup is sugar+water+maple in a nutshell molasses is the same but from pure sugar cane and minus the maple. I think the vitamin you are using when you use molasses is biotin. Maple Syrup has none of that so it will probably have no effect. This is from wiki:"Beet molasses is limited in biotin (Vitamin H or B7) for cell growth, hence it may need to be supplemented with a biotin source."

im going to be trying both. i have lots of both. maple syrup (the real stuff not that cat piss they sell at the store) has alot of minerals and plant hormone as well as the carbohydrates... it is quite literally, concentrated plant ffood. its what the tree makes to grow. at the very least, it cant hurt:)

There's an old expression: the game isn't worth the candle. Meaning: spending time answering this question isn't worth the "dilemma" that the OP is facing. For $2 just go buy some molasses, it's in your grocery store, we don't need to scurry around debating something so small...
