As for Bud Candy, nope, not used it. I use FF additional flowering supplements, Open Sesame, Beastie Bllomz and Ka-ching.
I seen in high times this stuff called bud candy and is suppose to make the buds taste like cotten candy and produce larger yeilds...i was wondering if any of you have used this product before and if so how well did it work and if not what would u recommend...I need feedback asap because my plants are starting to show early signs of budding...one more thing, can anyone give me a link to a site that i can order advanced nutrients online and have them shipped to my house...THANKS!
Bud candy will do nothing for your plant except add magnesium: http://www.advancednutrients.com/hyd...ient_facts.php
For the price, check out Botanicare's Calmag for additional magnesium. As far the amino acids and carbs, your plant already makes both.
For buying have you tried Ebay?
i was under the assumption that bud candy was basically unsulfured molasses (beet extract). there is a thread somewhere by 3littlebirds or something that explains it better than i can, they don't say the name "bud candy" in particular but it's pretty obvious. you should check it out, and save $30. do a search on molasses, and it should pop up.
I like Bud Candy and it's worked better for me than I think molasses would. I've seen too many growers screw up their grows with molasses - and Bud Candy is not the same. I wish people could see that.
Bud Candy's made to be used by the plant better than molasses can - not that there's anything wrong with molasses, but I'm just not convinced it's good for MJ growing.
You can get Advanced Nutrient online a variety of ways:
Good luck man!!!!!
BUd candy has over 30 listed ingredients on the back of the bottle. I dont think molasses has a full shot of amino acids, vitamin B's, etc etc.
The weblink homebrewer posted is wrong. Bud Candy has no magnesium in it. NONE. If you look at the tiny .gif file to the right you can see it lists about 30 different things, but when you click on it to enlarge the picture it just goes to that small magnesium picture. If you actually look at a bottle of it you will see what I mean.
It in fact does contain the over 30 ingredients mentioned by Coals. Advanced Nutrients came out after changing their label to clarify that with the hydroponic distributors/community (and also to say that one change had been made, in the viscosity of the molasses used), I guess you missed that :P
Sorry don't mean to flame or resurrect dead thread, just that you totally trashed what MIGHT be a good product on what was totally incorrect information :P
I would like to know how it changes the taste though, as i've never done a side by side comparison
