Using Super Thrive Properly

Hello again! Hope everyone is having a great day so far.. or a great night. Wherever your at.. hope your doing great. I know I am.

Just trying to help the noobies with some nice informative information about how to use Superthrive properly, with your cannabis plants.

Superthrive is a very very potent additive. Some people think that its nothing more than a nutrient. Well, its more than that. Superthrive contains a whole line of complete micro nutrients and mirco vitamins (such as B1) which Cannabis plants love to absorb. ST also contains many of the micro-nutrients and micro-vitamins and trace elements.. that alot of today’s nutrient brands don’t have.

Superthrive should only be used during the veg cycles of the cannabis plants life. You shouldn’t use it during flowering, or on a plant that has started to flower.

Superthrive also contains synthetic Auxins, NAA (1-naphthaleneacetic acid) which isn’t good for foliar feeding at all. However, the roots LOVE the synthetic auxins.. which helps the plant develop more bigger and more robust root systems.. therefore.. we all know that the bigger the roots.. and the more roots a plant has.. the bigger; healthier; and healthier the plant will be. More bigger roots, also means bigger more robust buds by harvest time as well. Once again, use it foliar and your plant will stretch (or if you use too much of it) too much will create freaks, not fun best place for auxins are the roots (unless you’re into stretchy plants).

Also, Superthrive should only be used once.. maybe twice.. per plant. Any more doses than that, per plant.. will lead to more problems than you want.

Lastly, Superthrive has a mix ratio.. that’s the exact same as if you were mixing up a batch of Molasses and water. So once again, the general rule of thumb for mixing Superthrive, is 1tbspn per gallon of water. Stick to that, and only use it once.. twice at the MAX.. and your plants will be just fine. But again, its not something you use on a weekly/monthly basis. It’s just a one time (maybe two time) thing.

Oh, and before I forget.. Superthrive is also well known.. for bringing sick plants.. back to life. So, if you ever have a plant that seems sick.. or seems like its not doing very well?? Mix up a 1tbspn per gallon of water.. and give it a watering.. and within two days.. that plant will be back to life in no time.. and it will look 200% better than it did before it received the ST/h20 mix. It will make the stems more robust and stronger; it will make the plants leafs bigger.. and just overall bring the plant back to life.. only it comes back 200% healthier than it ever was.

I hope I have cleared up some of the confusion about using Superthrive with your cannabis plants. If I helped just one person, than typing this up was worth it.

If you have any other questions about the subject, feel free to send me a msg here on the site.. and I’ll get back with you ASAP.

Hello again! Hope everyone is having a great day so far.. or a great night. Wherever your at.. hope your doing great. I know I am. 😉 Just trying to…

    Just wanted to get opinions on the use of superthrive in growing medical cannabis wanted to see if its useful or not and want to see what kind of results people are getting from it and what not.

    Oh I have heard that it will lengthen the flowering process any truth in this and if so when do you discontinue use?

    Ya, I use it, all throughout veg and flowering.

    I do not know what the ingredients are, but they claim to be an assortment of micro and trace nutrients, minerals, etc. basically, a lot of stuff that I know is not included in my normal nutes, because I do have the ingredient lists for those.

    I also supplement with cal/mag plus iron as I find that the nutes I use, while they provide some cal and mag, do not provide enough.

    I highly recommend it — I can not say absolutely how effective it is, as I’ve never run a side by side comparison, but I’m satisfied.

    I rarely subscribe to the threads I post in.
    so please PM me if you have a question!

    it’s good stuff, in moderation.

    surely, you can use it with every watering (drop or two per gallon) but in my opinion that will only give your plant a tolerance to the product (similar to how some grows start nutes at half strength and work up to full strength).

    i tend to give a bit of superthrive to the girls after i transplant them, then once again at the middle of veg (day 12 of 25) and then finally i give it a lil shot of superthrive on the first day and the middle day of flowering. (and if i do something stupid like stress the plant, i’ll use it.)

    I use superthrive mainly for beginning roots and transplanting. I use it when rooting clones and starting seeds, very little tho. I will use a little bit 2 or 3 days before transplanting from veg to flower. I noticed my plants are alot less if any stressed with superthrive. I think superthrive is basically a humic acid thats it. I don’t remmy where I heard that.

    I havent heard anything about superthrive lengthening your flower time. I know that adding nitrogen will doo that. Most folks slack off the nitrogen late in flower stage. But if you kept giving it nitrogen I bet you will see a longer flower time. Don’t hold me to this as I am still learning as I grow.
