Not at all, I have heard of people using Dr. Pepper actually. I think I even read about it in a HT issue in the old "Ask Ed" section. Just as a carb/sugar additive of course.

Have you checked nurseries for plant molasses? It's $13 for a gallon around here. Honey sounds like and expensive way to go. I guess if you have it and want to use it, it would work. It would supply carbs/sugars... but molasses has other minerals in it doesn't it(?)
I believe it does contain some micro nutrients yes. As to what exactly I couldn't tell you though.

It would be places over the severed limbs or bullet wounds. I would use raw honey which is straight from the hive and not heated up. It contains many naturally occuring elements from mother nature, the food of the gods as it was once called. Fuck Molasses that shit fucked up everyone of my grows that I used it on. Fucking snake oil bullshit. Even raw ass sugar is fine to feed carbs to the micro herd and to the plant.

im not fucking with anybody. soda works.
You gave nothing but opinions on why honey is better for people to eat. We're talking about feeding it to plants here.
I don't know how you were able to fuck up giving your plants molasses, but it seems like for every person I hear of that had problems trying to feed their plants molasses I hear from fifty others that have successfully used it. So, OP, I'd take this guys opinions with a grain of salt.
I add molasses and compost tea to my water throughout my cycle to keep a healthy microbe population in my soil. Personally, I've been really happy with the results.
And, a fable in the bible about a guy living on honey?!? Maybe if I found a fairy tale about someone eating apples then shitting out gold bricks, then we ought to all start feeding our plants apples?

ya lets feed our plants diet coke so the acid will eat the roots..kewl...............lol
I'm not at all interested in a pissing match with a kid on forum. I just brought molasses up because it's cheaper and it's supposed to have other minerals (not just carbs).
And, that was the main reason I brought it up - I wondered if honey had the minerals.
You're the one that got his panties in a wad about my post (which was me just trying to help) 'Fucking snake oil bullshit'.
Your last post was the first time you mentioned honey having so many micro nutrients. You DID NOT mention it in the post I responded to - you only explained how good it is to eat.

Honey has antiseptic properties
If its true that people used honey in the past for its antiseptic properties wouldn't that mean that it might destroy your micro heard?
