    molasses also contains potassium if you get “organic”not because its actually organic but it is less processed and? contains more potassium

  • MrBloodaxe2410 5 years ago

    hell? yeah

  • just1985stl 5 years ago

    this is really good? for flowering cannabis.. the carbs and other nutrients fatten up the buds because the sugars feed the micro organisms in the soil then in turn feed the plant.. good stuff

    True that.?

  • TheFrugal Gardener 5 years ago

    The word “organic” needs to be dropped. Let the OTHER way of growing? things take on the burden of an adjective! >:|

  • Phil Nauta 5 years ago

    You? bet.

  • marianne nicolas 5 years ago

    Can we use? molasses on vegetables like eggplants and tomatoes?

  • Phil Nauta 5 years ago

    Just mix it well. I use warm water? to help dissolve it.

  • chaosbank 5 years ago

  • Phil Nauta 5 years ago

    Absolutely.?

    Can i use dry? molasses?

  • aahpmcj7 5 years ago

    Sugar is a simple carbon. Most bacteria? can only break down one carbon at a time. Fungi have the ability to break down chains of carbons. Bacteria tire at the amount of energy they have to expend to break down chains of carbons. They move on to simple carbons. If you want to have bacterially dominated tea, feeding it fish emulsion is a waste. Likewise if you want a fungally dominated tea, feeding it molasses will cause the bacteria to grow because they move faster than fungi.

    Absolutely. I don’t know the? dilution rate, but I’m sure it would be useful.

  • Youdoobify 5 years ago

    good information. i feel kinda drunk because of your video? though 😉 maybe a tripod unless you’re using a camera phone i guess. cheers

  • Phil Nauta 5 years ago

    Well, it’s not quite that? simple – it’s not as though fungi don’t touch the molasses and bacteria don’t touch the fish. Good advice on the brewing time, though.

    Molasses feeds bacteria, fish or kelp fertilizer feeds fungi. Fungi breaks down complex carbon not bacteria. Please make sure that the molasses is unsulfured or it is useless.? If you want the microbes to “stick” to your foliage when using a compost tea, it must be aerated for 24 hrs. If the microbes are actively growing, they produce a glue that will help them “stick” to foliage.
    Your gardens look nice.

    It? could be okay. Worth trying.

  • Migo Bong 5 years ago

    good day… is it ok if you make more molasses? in the concoction ?

  • Phil Nauta 5 years ago

    Ya I’m always experimenting with things like this. It doesn’t always turn out? like you’d hope, but the molasses helps almost all the time.

  • woodgate50 5 years ago

    I tried the experiment with seedlings? . Placed in order of progress all the ones with sugar water came out in the top half . Have you done the experiment.

  • MedicalCannabisSpain 5 years ago

    B1 in particular and indeed? Sulphur in the natural one are so beneficial in molasses 😉
