    A buddy recently hooked me up with a big bottle of this FloraNectar Sweetener 0-0-1 made by General Hydroponics. He says it's supposed to help give the finished product a sweeter smell and flavor. It contains molasses and pure cane sugar, among other interesting ingredients. Has anyone heard of/used this stuff? Any success? Problems? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance yall.

    No haven't, But are you using the Flora Series? I was actually wondering if I should get the sweetener from GH. My boy uses the triflex sweetener(with all triflex nutrients....Bio Dynamic) and says its good, but sounds like free Nuts to me cant hurt... let me know what u think about it Im running a GH nutrient setup, Flora Series, Liquid Kool Bloom, with Advanced Nutrient B-52, Carbo Load and Overdrive wondering about the FLORALICIOUS grow/bloom and the FloraNectar Sweetener to add to the mix next batch....

    Well I got the FloraNectar Sweetener , and Floralicious bloom today, adding it to my mixture. I have been flowering for a few days and have been really happy with the GH and Advanced Nutrient's I am using... You have to use like 10 ml per gal of that sweetener and it says to use it from veg to flower.. I am starting it the week of flowering, the guy said at the shop it will still make it a sweeeeeeet smoke.....

    I know this is an old thread, but for future readers......
    I have used GH FloraNectar Sweetener 'Pineapplerush' with my last 2 grows..... plants in earlier veg may slightly yellow..even with the recommended 1tsp/gal....but i do not see any negative effects once flowering...... first grow used on all plants....yield was to par, with an excellent smell/taste..... but is was still a bit skeptical because i did not have a comparison.. so my last grow.....1/2 w/o and 1/2 with...... with a 100% certainty.... it was obvious...... sweeter smell...sweeter taste-(but only when flushed)... the 2 that were not properly flushed only improved the smell...not taste.... the flavors offered are not exactly reflected (did not smell like pineapple)...although both will effect the outcome in positve ways..

    Excuse me if I'm jumping in at wrong place. I read here but, don't usually comment. My buddy had been growing for a while. He says just like sugar makes people fat, so too does sweetener make the buds fat...
    I'm only on my second grow and I think I might give it a shot...

    I prefer the Bud candy......Floranectar makes everything taste and smell like pineapples or berries......I had success using it only in week 7 after bud candy....... Using it the whole flowering run was too much...........Just a slight hint of pineapple on the G13 was a tasty treat.......Peace

    I've used the Floranectar sweetner, and I've gone without it. IMO it does help improve taste and smell.

    I'm running all the nutes on the duo simple DTW chart, then I add Blackstrap Molasses last half of flower. Awesome stuff! 1 tablespoon/ gal. Water--nutes w/ molasses--nutes only-- water-- nutes w/ molasses-- nutes only--... Watch your ppm when using the molasses.

    I have used Pineapple Rush for a couple years now and I love it. The reason is, if you like to use bennies in hydro, you have to feed them. Usually people who grow in soil feed bennies molasses. I have tried to put some molasses in my res and had a terrible smell within two days. Now with the Pineapple Rush, which also contains molasses and a few other helpful things, my res in clean and clear and smells good and I can still feed my bennies. I have also notices that it helps certain strains taste better than others. I used it in my Bubba Kush and I could not tell a difference in taste from a crop of the same bud without the Pineapple Rush. But in a recent run of Bella Donna from Paradise Seeds, I noticed a much stronger taste in my bud grown with Pineapple Rush. Recently I ran a side by side of 2 strains and did one plant with and one plant without Pineapple Rush. Overall I think it has a lot to do with how the different strains digest the ingredients in Pineapple Rush, but I have had good success with it on certain strains and it helps feed all of my bennies. I like it and use it but I am not sure if it actually makes anything taste like pineapple. I think it just helps bring out the natural taste of certain strains.

    Yes I have been using GH sweeteners for about a year and a half now. I have used the Pineapple, Grape, Raw, Fruit and Fusion and now am on the Coconut. The Coconut is probably my favorite for "fruity" strains, but use the grape on my Northern Lights and Aurora Borealis strain.

    I have had people tell me since I started using it how much better and sweeter my stuff is over most other in my area. I will continue to use it

    I use GH FloraNectar Coconut, but i will let ALL of you know when using products like Sweet, FloraNetar or other sweeteners with "flavors" dont expect your plant to just produce these flavors your adding. They will only help ENHANCE the flavor not add a flavor unless you dont flush then enjoy your nutrient rich buds.
