Sugar Water?

    I was told that I could feed my plant sugar water to thicken my buds up if they are light and feathery. Is this true? And if so, how much water to suar ratio? Thanks

    Sugar is a good carbon source to fatten buds; I use molasses at a dilution rate of 1-2 tablespoons per gallon.
    If your buds are wispy and thin, though, you should look to other possible causes as well- the most common are heat stress and light leaks.
    Sugar is useful but like other sources of carbon, if your grow environment is poor, its value is negligible.
    A carb synthesizer such as Sweet has the catalysts to improve sugar usage by your plants.

    Hi sweetie...

    Sugar is OK, but what you need is molasses! Sugar will feed the beneficial fungi and bacteria in your soil, which in turn help your plants absorb their nutrients. Molasses goes one step further- it provides minerals, too. You will want the darker kind of molasses, not the light. Darker means more good stuff in it. I use one tablespoon per gallon of water, deep into flowering I sometimes use 2. If your plant is a sativa (tall, with skinny leaves), it may not help- some of them just have fluffy buds. Try running a search on molasses here and you will start using it! (Normally, I'd post a link for you, but Granny's sick today- one of my darlings at school gave me a nasty cold and you're big enough run a search without my help.)- Granny:hippy:

    Thankyou so much, I've been learning alot since I joined this site, the plant I have though isn't in a growroom, I'm growing in good soil outside in southern Texas, I've posted all the details of this plant in the thread titled "Lost & Found" It's the one I found growing in my backyard already budding...more than likely from a bag of mids or beasts...it is doing reat since I took it under my care, but the buds aren't getting very big...lots of trichomes and white and orange pistils...just not very large.

    How often do I use the molasses and water? Every time I water? I give her 200 mililiters of distilled water every morning and 50 mililiters at night since the texas weather dries it up so damn quick.

    Thanks Granny! I have a bottle of Grandmas molasses in the fridge,...the dark stuff. I will start using this today. But my question still is How often I want to use it and for how long? And also yes it is a sativa, but these buds are still pretty light even for a sativa I believe. I can't thank you all enough for the advice:greenthumb:

    Molasses is a nice thing because in soil, it's not an exact science at all!
    I'd start adding it when you see bud set. Then you can pretty much give it whenever you feel like it. I give my indoor plants molasses about every third watering, along with either Sweet or TopMAx for best effect.
    If you see a post you like, click on the little scale thing next to the post number up in the right corner, and then you can leave the poster rep and a comment.

    Well see I thought that's what it was cuz I see that silver scale on my posts next to "permalink" in the top right corner, but ONLY on my posts??? They are not on anyone elses for me to leave rep or comments. Do I need to be a member for a certain period of time before I can rep someone? Or do I need to have a certain amount of posts?

    Sweet is a carb synthesizing supplement and you can get it at a grow shop, or look up 'Botanicare' to mail-order it. Bonus, it's a good value for the $$$

    Wow, That stuff is expensive, will a quart of sweet go a long way for one plant because I'm not the richest man ya know? Even if not, I will still get it if it will make that much of a difference. A gallon online is 54.95 and a quart is 20 smackers! I'm gonna check out the nursery down the road from me, but I've started my girl on the molasses plus the nutes I've been using for her...now I just gotta get rid of the pest problem.

    Spend your money on fighting pests! A stressed plant is going to give you headaches that no amount of sugar, either fed to the plants or fermented into beer and then fed to yourself, will cure, lol!

    Haha, yea the pest problem isn't too bad yet, but I'm gonna nip it in the bud before it gets there. Got paid early today so I am on my way to the grow store for Jump Start, Sweet, and something for pests.
