Only difference is that your wallet is lighter and the vendor's is heavier.

yeah and theres growers who say flushing is not necessary. So its all a matter of personal opinion.
well i'll say this... a branch i just trimmed down on my closet beast... i snipped off a little bud/leaf and uh.. it tasted like a fucking fruit salad!! not really... but it was really sweet.
as long as the plant can uptake it. I know that berry is not going to make my strain taste like berry, same as citrus.

But what is the difference between the two?
I use this Schedule:

Its more for microbes, most plants don't uptake much sugar at all.. They make their own from primarily water, CO2 and light energy.. Soil microbes though use sugars as an energy source and release good stuff for plants to uptake.. Plants like cannabis do actually release sugars from their roots.. Mainly in later season, it symbiotic.. I thought we'd covered this..
to all the people recommending molasses instead of the "flavored" products. sure the flavor is just marketing.. but introducing molasses, which is essentially sugar, to water in a hydroponic res along with other nutrients. sounds like a recipe for bacteria, not healthy plant growth. sweet carbo and floranectar are the hydro-growers answer to molasses carbo loading.
Does anyone know how to make this stuff? I see its made from sugar epsom salt and iron. So is there a recipe for "sweet"?
Alot of bacteria are good.. Primarily aerobic ones.. Soil is packed with them.. You can do symbiotic hydro grows, but it can get rough if you aren't on the ball and/or don't have sufficient O2, but its generally unadvised.. I did a couple goes with goldfish and supplimentary bacteria that convert waste to uptakable forms.. Worked well, but was kind of a pain and killed alot of fish!
Hydro carb suppliments contain the enzymes these bacteria etc produce to do that without the bacteria, and I don't know what to think of that because alot of these things only use carbs to assist in the production of non carb compounds..
I switched to soil though, and like that waay more..
Anyways, bacteria etc can thrive in hydro systems with or without carb addition (the plants do dump sugars from their roots remember).. To reiterate though, carb loading is about helping bacteria etc thrive..
