Make a tea for them, 1 gallons of water with 1 tsp of molasses and 1/2 tbsp of epsom salts. Epsom if you suspect mg defiiciency. Careful with the epson......not too often.
Some people swear by adding also alfalfa, being her main staple.
Every 4th water use molasses and alfalfa, fish emulsion every second

Water only last 2 weeks

Kinda scrambled......
I'll straighten out tomorrow!

actually, epsom salt is great for cal-mag deficiencies, "only a moron" would post unresearched statements for the purpose of this forum...however, u dont need to feed any extra epsom unless u suspect a deficiency. i have no experience with molasses so i cant really offer an opinion. but i do know that ive read NOT to add molasses in a hydro setup as it will gum up your equipment. i thought molasses was mainly good for soil to feed the benificial bacteria or w/e? u trying to use as a carb source?

stop fighting like females! look up epsom salt! its actualy a good product for any plant! it has minerals that cannabis needs!


Epsom salts - (1tsp x GAL) should be used in the solution for magnesium and sulfur minerals!

11%Mg, 2%Ca, 14%S First mention because so common and for good reason. Provides two essential secondary nutes that often aren't found in commercial chemical ferts, and it wont alter pH much....read the previous post... If you use it with restraint, you can supply a steady source of S through the whole grow and increase the Mg and Ca ratios with other salts

I add it to the FF tea mixture. 1 Tablespoon per gallon. I didnt see sugar in the list of nutes on the FF bottle.

Yes Mr K, that's exactly what they're talking about. IMHO molasses helps the micro-organisms in the soil and therefore aid the plant in nutrient uptake. If it does anything to increase the size of the bud, it's because you are feeding the soil, not the plant. But it does take weeks to start working, so it does matter how many weeks you have left. One thing I've always found is that it increases the bug attraction.
Good luck to you.

Damn right it does! I use it right after the butter! That's my favorite brand! I nuke it to get it warm first.
