regular store-bought cane sugar, disolved in water during the final flush - may or may not be a myth... im not gonna argue that one
molasses, or any of the molasses based 'sweetening' additives you:
When Plants Need
· Crops Taste and
Smell Like Candy
· Adds Size and
Weight to Harvest
Back in the 1960's and 70's, Colombian farmers spiked crops with sugar, cinnamon, honey, vanilla and other flavorings. Five years ago Advanced Nutrients scientists began extensive studies of how organic carbohydrates, sugars and other natural substances sweeten crop taste and enlarge harvest yield.
We tested Sweet Leaf in all types of hydroponics gardens and had the crops taste-tested by picky consumers who are also hydroponics growers.
We conducted blind taste tests with growers who can tell what variety a flower is just by smelling it.
Our testers consistently said flowers grown with Sweet Leaf had an irresistible aroma, tasted like candy, cured faster, had far less rot and other disease, stored better, were larger, and were more potent.
now... its a product. and im not naive. and any company that makes a product (Advanced Nutrients, in this case) is always going to say alot in their marketing... to sell their product.
that doesnt discount the scientific research they put into it. and molasses is a major ingredient in these harvest sweetening products. i use it, and i personally see a difference. i see it in trich production, i smell it, and i taste it. in fact, this grow im going into a 10 day flush tonight - and going to flush with Final Phase & Molasses.
