No clue. People use unsulphured molasses during flowering, never heard of honey though.

What exactly is the goal in doing this? Flavour, I assume?

Some people use honey for clones, i'm pretty sure because it has a lot of sugars in it.

The plants use the sugar carbs. molasses is the base in most organic ferts.

I figured out it was probably for metabolisation right after I posted that. Now I just feel silly.
