All about Molasses

Recommended Posts

Can't get that link to work, or to quote using my phone.

 

You can never tell these days what people call their cannabis strains, there's a strain called "strawberry cough"

 

Do I serinade my plants, no but I do talk to them, apologize, and channel healing energy, if I have to trim or damage them. I send mental pictures of how I want them to grow.

 

Science has proven that they have a consciousness and bond to their carer, even showing signs of distress when their carer is becoming anxious up to distances of 50K away.

 

I believe the best music that plant's and most animals enjoy is baroque chamber music, but I think it's more to-do with the Hertz frequency than the type.

 

Come harvest time, I do feel bad cutting them down, when I have developed a relationship with them, I even feel bad chucking out clones I don't need.

Greenred Productions has done alot of work in this space

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xt66eVh5Hrc

 

There is also 432 Hz

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dg1_DXazvKI

 

No idea what the difference is between the 2 frequencies, not that heavy into that but I am SOLID electronica. Deep House to some Trance. The older, good trance. I have run across a few albums, by those that I follow, that have recorded in 432 Hz. If you'd like, I will send you some links. I'm sure I will run across them again. My music library is fast approaching 50 GB.

 

I agree, plants probably do have a consciousness. Music may be just another overlooked "fertilizer".

 

Peace be with You and Yours

There is a difference in the frequencies like differences in scale on a piano. When something resonates at a certain frequency, it will cause other things to resonate with it if they are a harmonic of the frequency. If you are into math its like square roots and prime numbers.

 

The Schuman frequency for earth is 7.83, although a few years ago there were some big spikes in it, which had never been seen before. I think human bio magnetic energy resonance jumped a bit, and the majority all got more compassionate towards our brothers and sisters. It may have been some big natural disasters around that time. The planets resonance has returned to 7.83 Hz again.  The 432 Hz is similar to 7.83 in resonance scale. Like a harmonic on a guitars string. So anything that is within the harmonic of 7.83 will be in tune with the planet and its energies and grow better. I use a lot of binaural beats at different frequencies when meditating.

Cool, nice to hear different stuff, the plants might like a change from woof woof Bach lol.

 

I used to listen to all the new house music when I was bouncing in night clubs back in the 80s to mid 90s. When Pump Up The Volume, came out in the clubs, about 6 months before general release, I had a bet with a buddy, that it would go straight to number one when it hit mainstream in the UK, and it did. House and trance completely changed the face of club music. Good times lol.

I can make a pretty good argument that the origin of electronica(House and Trance included) can be traced back to the island of Ibisi

(pronounced Ah bee za), part of the Balearic chain of Islands in the western Mediterranean off the East coast of Spain.

 

Cafe del Mar also has a streaming FM station

Cheers, I have a puter and a laptop too, but the laptop died last week which is why I am using my phone, so I will check them out on the puter. In   the UK it's called Ibiza, been to Spain and most of Europe but not there. What part of the planet are you on?

Minnesota eh, why the unhappy face, living so close to lovely Canadians lol.

 

No, my grow kind of changed on the last one, I have 5 plants in a vertical scrog around the edge of my tent. with home made COB LED's up top equivalent to just over 400w per side and a bare 750W HPS bulb hanging about halfway from top to bottom. During veg I had more LED's around the lower half of the plants instead of the HPS.

 

Here's a link if you want to check it out.

How to Grow Microgreens in Your Home & Make $100,000+ a Year - YouTube

vertical farming is waaaaaaaay past the concept stage.

John at his channel "GrowingYourGreens" is organic to the bone. Saw one of his vids about a new worm casting product. He's pumped about that. He also lives SW, Arizona/Vegas somewhere. Envious? Damn right. Outdoor growing climate here is HS.

Larry, the owner, just looks like an old stoner, albiet more $$ healed. Quite an entrepreneur as well.

Because its snowing as I type. Sick of it.

 

Just ordered 4 more grow light tubes. Had to, ordered 50 more bare root strawberry plants(Albion). Have a long history of being obsessive. Never understood that concept of moderation.

 

Anyway, still experimenting with lights/fert/soil. Going back to a basic 1 part sand/peat/compost&manure and add from there slowly. Picked up blood meal and bone meal. I know where I want to go, just currently flying IFR with only a VFR flight plan.

 

Say hi to your potato plant for me. Planning on cannabis fries? Ground buds with mashed potato/roasted garlic on a hot EVOO skillet? New pancake craze. I'm serious.

Holland has vertical growing down to a fine art now, everything computerized working out each individual mineral and water PH adjustment required per plant as well as constant monitoring of sunlight and co2 used, tweaking everything to cover size and flavor of fruits and veg.

 

Thanks for the link I will check it out.

LOL, Not sure its still surviving, it got buried under 3 bags of leaf trimmings last week and hasn't appeared again yet, to be honest I forgot all about it. I will have to dig it back out and see how its doing.

That,s about the amount I use in 4 liters for tea at the beginning of veg when I want to get the micro hoard up and running fast and I have plenty of nitrogen available.

 

I just watched the video, its very enticing, I am a vegetarian ( lacto, ovarian)  and everything I eat, pretty much is organic, I  wish I could get organic wine kits at a reasonable price then I would be very happy.

 

I am a sugar and refined carbohydrate addict though, which is not good. I need something like this that is really nutritional, not just with vits and minerals but with life energy, a lot of food, even organic vegetables, have lost their bio energy by the time its bought.

 

Have seen kirlian photography, its a type photography the shows the aura of living things here's a link if you haven't. Not a particularly good vid but it covers a lot with good examples.

Don't give Holland all the credit. Has been a global(tech advanced countries) movement for years. US/UK/Canada/Scandinavian with one company that has bankrolled the lions share of the research.

http://www.lighting.philips.com/main/products/horticulture/press-releases

They have been there from the start and have their footprint in just about anything major.

They also funded worlds 2 largest research orgs on the subject.

I talked to a rep from the Philips Midwest Wholesaler once. As far as I got was:

The proper spectrum for Strawberries is DRW LB. The minimum light level

needed is 275 micromoles/m2/sec for 14hrs per day. Fine art I'd say.

Never got a price, not a "business". Or, peons to far down food chain.

They may not have a specific light for cannabis, but I bet they could get VERY close.

Won't be cheap I'm sure, but payback time vs. HTPS lighting may be short.

I get it, But when it comes to tomatoes, and peppers/others to a large extent, there is a trade off.

In fact, thermal processing generally improves lycopene bioavailability by disrupting cellular membranes, which allows lycopene to be released from the tissue matrix (Nguyen et al. 2001). Multiple studies have shown that lycopene from thermally processed tomato products is more bioavailable than lycopene from fresh tomatoes (Gärnter et al. 1997, Stahl & Sies 1992, Allen et al. 2002).

Molassis

I notice something yesterday as I was cleaning the plastic trays I put under my pots to catch the drainage. A brownish greasy film, not the usual blackish dried residue(leached organics I think). Conclusion: molasses I mixed with water didn'T dissolve very well and watering with it had minimal if any advantageous affect. Also, idea of a foliar spray now not good idea.

However, I have been intrigued with what I have read here regarding "Teas".

Wadda ya think of this:

5 gal pail, 2 gal water, half cup molasses, coffee grounds, wood ash(got alot of that), Epsom salt, ground egg shells, chopped banana peel, table scraps, maybe a little bakers yeast(I make my own bread) and a fairly tight lid. Shaken couple times a day, not stirred. Take outside 5 days later and have neighbor kid open lid as I supervise from a distance, pour off liquid, save residue(might make a good roofing sealant), and see whats what.

I read and watch videos alot, use this, no this is better, do it this way, no, that way is better. Well F it. Everybody in the pool. Just like how I make soup.

Sounds OK, apart from the egg shells, I don't think you will get any value from using them in a tea unless powdered, table scraps so long as its not meat or oily, I am not sure I would go that heavy, with the molasses personally either, but give it a go you don't know until you try. You will make the yeast very happy with it. What will that type of yeast produce, carbon dioxide or oxygen? My brewing yeast for my wines, which I brew in my tent make extra CO2 for the plants, but if you are adding to the soil you really want oxygenating stuff for the roots, which is why I use a fish tank bubbler with my teas.

 

You should add the molasses last about 24-36 hours before you intend to use the tea. Otherwise the bacteria will have used it all up before it gets in the soil and it will all become anaerobic. I like the idea of getting the neighbors kid to open it up after a good shaking though, lol.

You’ll absorb more vitamin A from bell peppers lightly sauteed in olive

oil, therefore, than you would from the raw vegetable.

Eating bell peppers a few times each week -- sometimes raw and sometimes

lightly sauteed -- is probably the best way to maximize the vegetable’s

key nutrients.

Well I can forget the yeast. No bubbler either.

Yeast uses the sugars and oxygen in dough to produce more yeast cells

and carbon dioxide gas. This is called multiplication. The carbon

dioxide makes the dough rise which gives the bread a light and spongy

texture. ... The yeast needs lots of oxygen in order to complete this

type of fermentation.

But I ain't giving up my bread.

They call it "Pruno" in the US. You know its ready when the balloon around the top inflates then blows off. Aging doesn't help.

I'm not into any vegan thing but watch what I eat and shun junk foods.

 

I've known for years that some foods are better for you cooked like tomatoes, which the skins should be removed from, carrots as the carotene, Vit A, is almost twice as available with light cooking.  We steam a lot of veggies.

 

No freaking High Fructose Corn Syrup ever!  In so many food-like things now.  recently Campbell's starting using it in their tomato soup which has been a favourite of mine since I could eat but now I won't buy anything they make.  In Canada it's on the ingredients list as Glucose-fructose or the other way around.

 

The wife grows a lot of veggies every summer so we get decent stuff that way.  Still eating our own carrots and recently ran out of onions and garlic so she's doubling up production this year.  Lots of leeks too.  Dry them out and use them in soups made from our own chickens that run around the yard most days keeping weeds down in the garden.  Our neighbours raise grass fed beef and are often giving us last years meat so they have room for the new ones.  Moose and venison too.

 

Heinz is out too.  Shut down their Canadian operations and put a lot of tomato farmers out of business so they could keep jobs in the US and use HFCS instead of the sugar they used for the Canadian made product.  French's moved in and put all those farmers back to work and their ketchup is almost the same as what the old Heinz was but a little to sweet for my tastes which might just be because I'm gettin' old. :)

 

French's mustard got an A+++ rating at NaturalNews.com years back as a pure food that has many medicinal qualities.  Mustard is a natural cancer preventative and they use turmeric for the colouring.  All natural tho I'd like to see apple cider vinegar rather than useless white distilled vinegar.  I take a couple Tbsps of ACV every day anyway so no biggie.

 

Wish I could eat more seafood.  Back in BC I stocked my freezer up with salmon every fall that I caught myself and had in the freezer within a couple hours of pulling them out of the river.

 

I sometimes use turbo yeast to make a simple mash with white sugar and let it bubble away in a corner of the grow room and give me free CO2.  Got a nice glass Italian 6USG bottle for that.  Then I can distill it in my homemade distiller and make my own EverClear if I want.  Get a gallon of almost pure ethanol for the price of 10lbs of cane sugar and maybe $5 worth of yeast.

 

:peace:

In the US that crap is in just about everything, dairy(yogurt), baked goods, 99% of soda, fruit juice, V8 juice, virtually anything that uses a sweetener processed foods  etc.etc.etc.

You need to read labels to make SURE what you want doesn't contain HFCS. Food and Drug Administration should label it as an obesity/artery clogging drug.

You don't have to carry a vegan card to eat healthy.

Moose and venison

 

My favorite still Antelope, gamey-er, but love it.  Oldest son has taken over the venison procurement for us. Does the ice fishing as well. Slaying the crappies lately. Moose few and far between here. Mn has a lottery system for a few tags every year. Never applied. Trunk bucks are easier.

decent stuff

You couldn't give me a truckload of "canned" vegetables. Only thing we peel is tomatoes before mashing and freezing. Minute and a half in boiling water, makes them so hot ya can't touch them. Had to rely on farmers market last year to get enuf. Absolutely worst growing season I've seen in 2 decades.   We freeze fresh veggies in ziplocks, fill with water to get air out. No freezer burn. Same with fish.
