Good link. Thanks.
Hey everyone, I started to utilize molasses on my grow recently.
It was highly advised to me by a very compotent grower, who loves organics.
As such I have been doing some research on it and came up with this, and, of course wanted to pass this on to everyone. I found this interesting.
This is from high times.
We did an experiment about 10 years ago and found that buds swell about 20% when sugar is added to irrigation water during the last four weeks of flowering. The sugar could also be enhanced with other flavors, but the flavors don't always come through as a notable taste when the weed is smoked.
PS, I was advised to use molosses every other week throughout the flowering cycle
(For what it's worth)
I wanted to clarify that when they talk of "sugars" they are talking about molasses, not table sugar, this is NOT the same thing.

sweet, really videoman, so you tried it also, right? how did it turn out?
keep the thumb green and the gun oiled, !
So what do you do, dissolve the molasses into water or put on the soil?
Yeah Green Nobody, I am using it right now, and the plants smell awesome!
David, mix about 2 tablespoons per gallon of water, stir it up, and use it.
Looks like ice tea. lol
good shit man....think it'll do anything this far along, 67 days?....
How much longer to go? It certainly can't hurt them, and probably help the flavor some too.
Do you have a glass to check the trichomes?
tryin to get my hands on a glass, like i said this is all experiment, the plant is huge though, i thought i'd be done at 8 weeks, im glad i didnt stop there though, its really heavy now. alot of the big leaves on top are turning a dark purple, i've seen this in pics before, u know what that's about?
how much molasses would go into a liter of water?
"sometimes, i forget it's illegal"
3.8 liters equal one gallon, do the math.
