Molasses. I like to think I do ok growing. My friends tell me that I do a good job, my plants are usually very healthy, I produce some decent finished weight on a fairly consistent basis, I read quite a biy(here, mostly), but I am not a botanist or very "technical" - like some of the informative minds are here - Anyhow, I have what I think is a fairly reasonable question about molasses. I use it. I have for quite awhile now. I usually use - oh, anywhere from a teaspoon to sometimes even a tablespoon per gallon - not everytime I water, but quite often, I guess. I believe that I am using the molasses for the "living mycorrhizal microbes" - the little guys - the "life" that is in a good, solid organic mix.As food for them, I mean. My question is this. Is the molasses giving the plant any nutritional value from the molasses - like, I guess, carbs, or sugars, etc., or am I doing this strictly to feed the soil life? I hate to sound stupid, but this has always made me wonder. Is it food for the Mycorrhizea, strictly, or is the plant benefiting from it as well? Thanks in advance - and TGIF. Jerry.
