is it true that sugar helps plants? if so can it be used in hydro? or is there a nutrient that has the right amount of sugar in it?

I use black strap molassas in my final 4 waterings of flower...sweeten's up that vital growth period, while the plant is putting on weight. Sugar is a great grow additive, but the more unprocessed sugars work the best. I grow in soil, but I'm sure one of our hydro buddies will pipe up soon.

There are types of glucose that are awesome for taste and puttin on pounds... pure blackstrap molasses has all the sugary additives a plant can use...

Hyrdro use 1 tsp unsulphured blackstrap molasses per gallon during flush. I agree with using it only at the end.

Molasses is unrefined sugar which is a combo of glucose and fructose.

There are other sugars avail but very costly. Bananamana is one that comes to mind. Very pricey, 50$ a gallon!

Would molassas clog up a pump in an aeroponics system?
