    i seriously doubt it would work. the roots would most likely filter out any taste before it made it to the plant.

    Yes... Last year, I added some dilute Pineapple Juice to a couple of Skunks the last week of flowering as an experiment.
    .
    The Results - a nice tropical taste - just a hint of Pineapple & slightly sweeter than their sisters..
    .
    So, it does work - can you add it eariler ? I don't really know. Someone who knows for sure - ENLIGHTEN US....

    Sounds a bit dodge to me just befause of the amount of additives they add to them drinks. Try curing your weed with a few fruit segments and you should achieve the same effect. Happy growing:)

    i doubt that it will greatly affect the taste and smell of your plants since the plant only takes the necessary nutrients it needs and reject the unwanted ones. i am not sure though but from the concept of feeding too much synthetic nutes that is why there is salt build ups? because the plant has already enough nutes to be feeding more. mollases are just soil conditioner from what i have heard, the sugar it takes help photosynthesis on the leaves. try to give fresh fruit juice instead of the one in cans, and make sure the juice ur giving is not acidic...i usually throw banana peel on top of my plants but youd be having infestations what more if u use fruits. so just my guess. my rule of thumb dont experiment to much, strains react differently. what has work for me before i stick to it

    The plant does NOT absorb fruit juice, it will take what water it can but not the flavour nor the sugars..
    Plants MAKE sugars, they don't suck them out of the ground.
    Any sugars that you add are for the benefit of the micro-organisms that feed in the soil and release nutrients for the plant to use.
    Too much fruit juice can raise the soil acidity and cause nute lock-out.
    Also, too much juice will actually suck water molecules out of the plant - simple osmosis where the greater concentration of water molecules (in the plant) travel through the cell membranes to the lower concentration area (the fruit juice).
    And if you taste pineapple flavour, it is either your imagination, the plants particular pheno being different from the others, or simply bullshit.

    dont use juice. it could attract bugs and all sorts of insects. and it could aslo fuck with your PH. if you want to do something add mollases. iheard honey works too. but mollases would be your best bet.

    Why not just find some decent genetics, quit abusing fertilizer and cure properly?

    If you use any welch's juice with your waterings during flowering, such as Grape juice, it will turn the buds an intense purple with a grape flavor. Seen it, grown it, smoked it. It works.
