Most people add molasses during the last few weeks of hydro right? That sounds just as unbelievable

Except molasses is all natural carbohydrates and sugars which is something marijuana uses to build bud tissue whereas blueberry juice is high fructose corn syrup which cannot be utilized by plants.

We all good now?

I added molasses to my last hydro grow in BBs, all I got was foam in the buckets and a nasty mess to clean. I do use it on my dirt grow with good results. they make carbo additives fro hydrosystems that do the same thing, just not as cheap as molasses.

hello all,

dont knock molasses guys!!!

when i was doing soil, i used to add molasses towards the end of the plants life, trust me, it fattens it all up nicely.

I would never add molasses to my hydro kit, its more suited to the dirt.

when i first started out in this game some people used to say the same sort of things to me:confused:

i did harvest one time and leave lemon cuttings in a bag with about 3.5 grams in a plastic bag for 4-5 days, the smell did come over in the bud, not strong, but definately a smell was there.

peace
eastman

Put the Blueberry Juice into your belly. It'll do more for you than it would ever do for your plants.

Molasses stimulates the rapid microbial decay of resident organic matter in soil. The carbs that can be gained from it are minimal and can be amended to the soil with many more effective additives than using a sugary mess in your reservoir like molasses is.

Think Ants. Think Cockroaches. Nasty, nasty, nasty!

Using a food based substance in your reservoir is like calling all the bugs in the world and telling them dinner is served.

Plus, it just makes a mess.

I look at it this way; I grow about six thousand dollars worth of weed (If I had bought it on the street), in each crop I produce. Why am I going to mess around with some nickle and dime crap when there are so many quality choices to be had in terms of nutrients and additives?

It's time to get up off that wallet and buy what's best. Even if you grow a much smaller crop than I do, it still pays to buy some quality nutrients and additives.

Use the money you would have spent on the street for that weed. It'll pay you back in high yeilds and quality bud.

Because uninformed people like you will spend money on the additives that do nothing.


Each company makes a nutrient profile, their specific ratio of NPK.

The way these companies make money is to break down their ratio into multiple bottles instead of a 1 or 2 part nutrient.

So instead of needing 8ml of floranova bloom per gallon and NOTHING else, you have to use upwards of 20ml of crap per gallon for your grow.

If you want to spend a lot more money and get not as good as or just as good as results as those of us who spend $65 for a years worth and get better results than you, go for it :D

Pretty insulting manner you have there fella.

After growing weed for 40 years, 25 in hydro, I think calling me "uninformed" is pretty silly.

I use no additives. I use nothing more than the GH 3-Part Flora Series and it works very well for me.

Learn some manners.

You sound like another Internet Know-It-All.

You assume things you have no way of knowing.

Why don't you lighten up and quit being a jerk?

Who are you to say I have no manners when I replied in the exact tone that you did?

I'm sorry your feelings are hurt after I called you uninformed. Reading the evidence you provided in your post it didn't seem at all incorrect.

Why did this thread turn into a cokfight when LEDFUN is just spreading his personal growiing experience, form evidently 30+ years, to the people on this forums. I'll trust 10, 20+ years experience over any book, and anybody who's "heard" somthing and takes it as fact. Ad in, he never attacked anyone, yet hes being attacked here.

If you have education against him, post the facts. But don't be an asshole and attack. hijm for no reason.

I'm sorry you typed all that, you'll be sad to know I didn't read past the first paragraph.

I'm sorry you felt you had to respond to my post with the statement that I'm "uninformed". There was nothing "uninformed about what I said. There was much about what you said that is uninformed however.

Of the hundreds of additives that are available, there are many that are useful. The sponsor of this forum sells some. Your comment made it sound as if there were NONE that were anything but a rip-off. That's uninformed as well as being rude to the people who pay for this forum.

To suggest the use of molasses for inside growing is uninformed. It's sugary sweetness will and does attract ants, cockroaches and other sweet loving insects in homes that are unprepared for them via pest-control. There are additives that work just as well and don't attract insects.

You then assume that I lack in facts about growing. I have 40 years of growing weed behind me. I have 25 years of experience growing MJ using Hydroponics. Your assumption shows that you didn't research my previous posts or you would have known this. Instead, you choose to make an uninformed comment about my experience.

My comments were to those who are growing thousands of dollars worth of weed and worrying about spending $50 on some quality made nutrients or additives. The comments were made "tongue in cheek" to emphasize using what is best, not what is cheapest. I meant no insult or rudeness in making those comments.

You fired on me like I was some sort of rookie who had never even seen a marijuana plant. You were out-of-place and being rude. I called you out on your rudeness.

I'm sorry you felt it necessary to make a post in that tone. It didn't follow any tone by me in the same vein.

Now, how about if we drop this nonsense and get back to helping people who really are just starting in the growing of this fine weed and leave each other alone?

I can promise you that I have most likely learned any facts about growing marijuana that you know. Examine my other posts and see if they sound to you like someone who just started learning.

Let me suggest that you use PMs when you feel the need to chastise someone. Doing so will avoid this type of public nonsense. You and I could have settled this in private easily.
