    It's snake oil that's better for feeding ants than plants. You don't need it.

    i find that it gives me issues when i use it on plants, but it is a staple in my seed germing solution. i put a couple drops of it in a cup of warm water and soak my paper towel in it. i use a sandwich bag and my cable box to keep the thing warm and moist until i see tails.

    to be fair i have stopped doing comparison runs with/without superthrive because i determined years ago that i get more tails with it than without. not very scientific i guess but i lose very few seeds and it's not much effort to unscrew the cap and put some drops in a cup of water.

    This. There is nothing in ST that healthy garden techniques and strategies wont cover. But it did take me 5 or 6 years to figure this out.

    Sure, would you be okay with a 2006 USC Science Fair project? A student under Dr. Debra Mauzy-Melitz found that a Daffodil grown in red food coloring grew better than the same plant grown with Superthrive. Here's the link: http://www.usc.edu/CSSF/History/2006/Projects/J1603.pdf

    I use B vitamins when cloning and germinating. It works extremely well for this purpose. I have also found plants respond well to a few odd mL of B vitamin during veg and flowering as opposed to plants that don't get it. B Vitamins benefit your plant, and algae, and fungus. Soil microbes from your store of choice help prevent this in an organic garden. Hydrogen Peroxide will help in a chemical garden. This is why there was fungus and algae on the samples with the B Vitamin. To me, all that study shows is that daffodils don't respond well to B Vitamins. Find a study done with herb and you'll have more accuracy. Oh wait! Nutrient companies already have! There's plenty of usefull things to market to growers, so most established nutrient companies don't stoop to selling "snake oil". Find the ones that work best for you! The only good nutrients are the ones that work well for YOU.

    i agree 100%. there are plenty of studies that show the benefits of B-1 vitamins in plant growth; especially in soil and as a foliar spray. i use 1 drop per gallon in the water that i soak my rockwool cubes in, every other watering in veg, and for all transplants. i use 2 drops for sick plants and following flushes.

    A guy by the name of James Bonner in the 1930's discovered that thiamin (vitamin B-1) was able to restore growth to pea root tips that had
    languished in tissue culture. By 1942 Bonner was debunking his own discoveries, stating that the effect only ever occurred in very few plants and that since thiamin was found in soil itself, field applications were unlikely to benefit plants. Bonner ultimately fully retracted his claims of efficacy by saying “It is now certain, however, that additions of vitamin B1 to intact growing plants have no significant or useful place in horticultural or agricultural practice”.
