    How often do you give molasses?

    I've been giving my plants Blackstrap molasses, 2 tablespoons per gallon, once a week in both veg and flower. FF soil grow.

    Should I give molasses 2 times a week? or 3? My normal schedule is nutes + FF micronutes (beastie bloom, or cha ching, or open sesame in the flowering cycle) on monday, molasses + micronutes on wednesday, and just plain water + micronutes on friday night / saturday morning.

    there is sugar in the molasses and this feeds some microorganisms in the soil. is good to give from beginning of grow.

    I would not risk running molasses in airponics, at least not at the usual strength to start with anyways.
    Pot really does lead to harder stuff...
    ...Like winning The World Series.

    I agree. There has been no scientific proof that this actually works. I have seen it actually cause more problems than what it's worth.
