Yeah.  I wouldn't use black strap for hydro man.  Thats what sweet is for.  Although it's not going to hurt really.

No dude...dont use molasses. Use sweet like hawk said.

If you have an aerated solution it will make bacterias grow and youre essentially making a compost tea in your reservoir. Over time, you WILL fuck up your system. And that time will be pretty short. Fully organics like that dont work well in hydroponics.

Most molasses say specifically on the bottle "not for hydroponics". I know botanicares does.

Molasses is great but i really think its one of the most over applied and least understood additives that people just dont take time to realize what it does. Im not gonna start a rant...but flush your system, clean it, refill and do not add ANY molasses. Use a synthetic sweetener.

Like i said...youre making a compost tea. Whatever microbes are in that tiny 2 tsps are going to multiply and spread all over your system. In time itll get slimy and eventually froth up again.

The botanicare molasses bottle says "not for hydroponics, for hydro use sweet".

I had to say it twice but if you think that youre gonna figure out somethin new with one of the oldest additives around, youre wrong. Youre not listening to what were reccomending and youre not reading the bottles youre buying so dont be surprised when your system fails because of slime and all kinds of other shit.

Flush it AGAIN, and remove All molasess...use synthetics

Ok for the record if i would have left that shit in there it would have destroyed my roots completely      i flushed and put my bloom nutrients in there and a tsp of rooting hormone to help the roots back along  along with some Epsom salt and a couple of tums believe it or not after all the research i did it looks like calcium carbonate is available to the plant, agriculturalists have been using it forever they even sell big bags of it for farmers to put on their feilds and can be used as a foiler spray

Good to know.  Now you just are going to have to figure out how to dose it out so you know that they are getting the right amount.
