Using SuperThrive in Nutrient Mixture as an additive


#1

Hey all!

So I was reading through a book on cannabis cultivation and hydroponics and it mentioned a vitamin solution known as Superthrive. It has a concentrate of vitamins that supposedly helps increase growth and yield, so concentrated in fact it recommended only using 1 tablespoon per roughly 15-20 gallons, and you have to ensure you watch your Ph as it can turn it more acidic.

If anyone has used this stuff before would you be able to provide some insight on how (if) it helped out your grow at all.

Thanks in advance!

It is recommended by a lot of people and mentioned in several grow bibles/guides. I do not use it in my regular water /nutrient cycles . but I do use it in my compost teas and when watering cuttings/clones. It seems to act as a tonic for plants and a stress reducer when cloning. Its very concentrated so I use sparingly.

I’ll have to give that a try, I still have issues with clones on occasion and get kinda upset when I get a good phenotype and its clones end up kicking the bucket.

it also helps when transplanting in soil. it has micronutrients and relieves stress on the plant.

Yes I use it all the time. Mostly with my clones and in transplanting . And yes you must watch how much you use. But ya it has worked great for me. Well mostly the plants that is.
For a gal of water i’ll use 2 mil along with two cap full of Hydrogen Peroxide and 2 mil of Root Stimilant

One of the main ingredients in superthrive is triacontanol. I believe it’s sourced from alfalfa extract. It’s also the main ingredient in very high priced solutions like canna boost.

Shouldn’t be too difficult to find the benefits.
