Does sweet increase yield? Or only flavor/potency?

Also you only need to use it durring flowering, correct?

Yes you only need to use it during flowering.  The theory behind it is that you supply extra base carbohydrates that are accessible to the plant.  This should increase yield, as long as all the other parameters are ideal and the plant is receiving everything else it needs to grow to it's maximum potential.

But it shouldn't change taste or potency.  Even though have have the grape ones etc.

Thanks for clearing that up.

The different flavors confused me also lol what's the point? Marketing?

Also I seen a supplement that supposedly increases uptake of carbs.  Is this true?

Add plant hormones. A further increase in carbohydrate uptake results when certain plant hormones are present near the roots. Auxin—indole-3-acetic acid, or IAA—is particularly effective. A concentration of one micromole per liter IAA nearly doubles carb uptake, although lower concentrations are probably more effective (Kanayama, Ofosu-Anim, and Yamaki, 1998).

Auxin.. So super thrive will do?

I haven't experimented with it.  So I can't really comment on it.

Use it at 12-15 mls per gallon, until the last 2 weeks of flowering.

Sweet is super awesome for hydro and i also reccomend it to customers, but if youre doing a soil gro i would suggest using Strapped instead. Its just molasses, is cheaper than sweet, use 1-2 tbsp per gallon and a gallon is about $16 and its organic. Both sweet and strapped are both from botanicare.

Sweet is good stuff too but strapped is like sweet specifically for soil. It even says on the bottle of strapped, "Not reccomended for recirculating systems, for hydroponics we reccomend sweet".

I use molasses on everything...fruits, flowers, nugs, and especially compost teas. I dont use it too much during veg, but i still put a little to feed soil microbes. I think the molasses really shines when added in a tea.

There is a link to a botanicare rep going into detail about it and how to use. Its pretty cool stuff. Not to be suckin botanicares dick or anything but Im real heavy into organic stuff and personally their strapped and fulvex are my two favorite products for anything grown in soil. Ill stop now before i start ranting on about em...

I was going to add that such additives are also said to benefit the
soil microbes....that one in, in part, is feeding the soil itself, as
well as the plants.

I have stopped adding it, and expect to chop in 1.5 weeks.

Take care,

JD
