Super Thrive
    #322990 - 11/29/09 04:43 PM (7 years, 9 days ago)

Just wondering if anyone has used this supplement? If so, what were the results, likes, dislikes? It seems to be fairly expensive ($16.99/4oz. bottle).

Discuss.......



I got a water bottle filled up by one of the landscapers on a job i work. They had a gallon jug of the stuff and after asking them about it they turned me on to this bottle of it to try out.

My uncle is a golf greenkeeper. I'm not sure about "Super", but he recommended Thrive to me for my plant's Fruiting/Flowering phase because it gives the plant Phosphorus that it needs fed either through the roots or foilage.

After some further investigating via google, I discovered Thrive had only about 5% total phosphorus (slightly more than most others average).

After greening up my plant for three days with a burst of Nitrogen I went to the shops and decided to read the labels on the packets and I came across this product which I recommend (it might not be as popular among growers than Thrive):

Miracle-Gro MaxFeed All Purpose
Total Nitrogen = 15.0%
Total Phosphorus = 13.1%
Total Potassium = 12.4%

It's got 2 or 3 times more phosphorus than Thrive, and, it's guaranteed not to burn on any plant. Will also feed through foilage if desired. Hope this helps - Thrive might be the safer bet.

Super Thrive is just a supplement as far as i read. Not a fertilizer. It contains micro nutrients and vitamins supposedly.

Yeah my hydro shop hooked me up with it when one of my first grows got nutrient lock and went like three weeks with very little grow.

They came right out of it and finished up nicely.

I only use 1 ml per three gallons.

I went to their web site to get some more info on it since i had a hard time reading the label. The label is all cluttered and really hard to find the info i wanted. Well the website was not any better!

I see it is pretty concentrated stuff. i started using it on my plants @ 1/4 tsp. per gallon per label instructions.

You can find it for less. Remember you only use one or two drops per gallon, I liked it. Gave a little bit of a boost. You can find it at any hardware store or nursery.

Personally, I like the packaging on it... It's all nostalgic, gimmicky snake-oil type shit.. lol I think it's great.

I use it, but have absolutely zero experience otherwise as I'm using it on my first grow.

I've read alot of people saying they use it for cannabis... it's pretty popular.  I really like how it's probably the only nutrient I see over and over that people feel "okay" with using during seedling/clone/sensitive stages which would otherwise not get nutes.

As for dose.. I think the package recommends a 1/4 tsp per gallon?  I tend to use an 1/8 tsp per gallon, or about 2-3 drops per quart... Why do you use so little of the stuff Magash?

I only put about 3-4 drops per gallon, but I feed with every feeding. the best part is that a waterbottle sized sample like you have should last you a year or two

it's amazing stuff IMO. I did a test on 4 plants while transplanting once, the 2 fed with superthrive showed NO stress whatsoever while the 2 fed just plain water drooped for about a day before recovering.

I will never grow without it.

I'm of the one drop per gallon school.

Just what I learned from an old hand.

It's a bunch of vitamins and micronutrients.

It is because Super Thrive is mainly vitamins and supplements in a B-1 base.

Haha I can't I can't believe this.  A whole thread with SuperThrive believers, it's a miracle.  I have used this stuff too since my first grows.  I am just surprised because most of my prior research on it has shown many experienced growers saying it is crap, a gimmick, snake oil as said above.  I have read guys saying they did side by side tests with it and found zero difference in using it.  I am just glad to hear some people backing it up for once with good reasoning. I haven't done any side by side tests but I am confident that it contains B vitamins, which I know are good for my plants.

It has been used in the gardening community for a LONG time, that can't be a gimmick.  I do hate the fact that the bottle makes it seem like a joke.  It is like it was written by a Japanese speaking person that just learned English, you know just like the manual for that new electronic device you just bought?.  Here are some actual quotes from the bottle that make me LMAO:

"Billions-proven far ahead 5 ways" ..... Say what?
"Proven MOST extra life" .......  Huh???
"Beware and refuse fraudulent token-substitutes" ...... WTF is that???
"Bio-usables" ...... If you say so...
"Original world-lifting life complexes"  ..... wait, are we still    talking about plants?
" 'Best (or Greatest) PRODUCT IN THE WORLD', say many"  well there you have it, settled
