has anyone seen documents of growth rate increase feeding plants brown sugar?
    #54554 - 06/10/08 01:19 AM (8 years, 5 months ago)

for example, here is a plant with brown sugar fed to the soil:

here is a plant WITHOUT brown sugar fed to the soil:

etc.

anywhere? I'm hoping this increase will help my plants vegetate faster, and nitrogen fixing bacteria live on brown sugar also, right?

idk, but this is all i could find...

Quote:

9. Liquid molasses, dry molasses powder, brown sugar, corn syrup - source of fast consuming sugars for feeding and breeding the aerobic bacteria in compost teas. Most microherd populations love the high carbon content in sugar products. Sugars are best dissolved and broken down by microbes in compost tea that has brewed at least 1-3 days, before applying to the soil. If too much sugar is added on soil straight as a topdressing, it may cause a temporary nitrogen deficiency in the soil as the microherd populations grow too fast. Molasses also contains sulfur which acts as a mild natural fungicide also. Molasses is also a great natural deodorizer for fishy teas. NOTE: Recent studies have shown that unsulfured molasses or dry molasses powder is best for faster aerobic microbial growth in tea brewing. For a more fungal tea don't add too much simple sugar or molasses to your aerobic teas. Use more complex sugars, starches and carbohydrates like in seaweed, rotten fruit, soy sauce, or other fungal foods.





couldn't find a side by side grow with pictures but:

I conducted an experiment for my biology class regarding the effect of sugar water on plants. After about two weeks the flowers were the brightest colors I'd ever seen, a beautiful full green color in the leaves and bright mixtures of orange and yellow in the flowers. I used marigolds, and my experiment was quite a success.




Quote:

In year 8 science we had to conduct a plant experiment. I chose to find the effect of sugar and salt on basil. The sugar watered basils grew very well. Their leaves turned out perfect and very green--much better than the salt or normal water!




Quote:

I was doing a science project and I grew three plants: one with salt water, one with regular water, and one with sugar water. The one that grew best was the one with sugar! I thought it would be the one with normal water, but it wasn’t!




although most said it didn't help... they just say sugar though and not brown sugar, but maybe that will help :wink:

Growing Edge reader Mr. Green Thumb replies:
Glucose is what’s making your plants grow better. Sugar is glucose. The plants that rotted probably got too much sugar. White sugar also contains bleach--a chemical that plants don’t like. Plants are different like people--they tend to like different things.
