Brown sugar in final flush

Have heard than some people use brown sugar in one’s final flush. What do you guy’s think?? Guess the plant would get sugar ans carbs. It’s said to promote better taste and will not hurt the plant - 1cup per gallon water

seems like it would harsh the smoke to do it in the final flush… I always thought sugar additives were done up until the final flush…

Never heard of brown sugar, but I’ve heard many of people that use blackstrap molasses :evergreen_tree::evergreen_tree::v:

I was told by a smart scientist type person that even went to the pole to study living things
She said adding sugars of most types was a waste of time because the sugars are too large to be used by the plant
It needs to be broken down by microbes for the plants to get at it making it is useless in most short term hydro setups that are sterile
You would need soil and good bio of microbes and fungi working away to break it down in time for the plant to use
She said even full organic hydro would not get the full benefit of sugars
We were not talking about cannabis though we were talking about fruit&veg they were growing at the pole base and how they were trying to raise starch levels to help fight cold wastage on persons in very cold conditions they live on chocolate bars 10-20 per day plus meals
Does this make those additives just hype ?

when I see her next I will ask if she could give me the full break down on what they work out because they did up the starch levels but I dont remember how or if she said how.
I did hav a pot they grew composting microbes in because not too many there :slight_smile:

I did learn something - about the question I asked and how some folks feel about helping each other questions’ “would advise discounting asking for advice from “some people”” Didn’t think an Admin person would say that !!! Sorry about asking the question ( what seems important to some may not be important to others. Guess thanks for being respectful - Peace !!! PlEASE no harm wan meant by question - just answers

What are you talking about. Making your own issue with me?

You said;

“Have heard than some people use brown sugar” I said don’t take advice from “spme p[eople”

Perhaps reading what I said and not assuming it was an insult directed at you, instead of friendly advice with a “Smiley face” would have helped there.

C’mon man! Don’t insult me

You could use the sugar via a worm tea I do
I add a cup and let it brew for 24-48 with air
I have a very happy garden or will have if this rain ever stops
Half the roads here are under water deep fast flowing water

Okay @latewood @garrigan62 @MacGyverStoner @ktreez420 have you ever heard of or used this product ? I know a lot of people use Sledgehammer for final flush . The only person I know that actually grew sweet tasting sticky high quality bud used to use Sledgehammer and said this worked better for him to sweeten the taste. But since you guy’s are the Weed Warriors I want your opinion of it first .

@Oldstoner,

Sure do I have a bottle of that and used it twice and it worked out just fine. Didn’t need to flush with water.
