Slow flower growth, proper use of superthrive, and much much more!
Alright guys and girls and people that know more than me. I was told a long time ago superthrive had tricantinol in it and I was like hey lets use this stuffs it’ll be all good. My ppms were ok so I would throw a good 5 ml in each time I mixed my nutes 5 gals (captains recipe) as I had been given that advice for veg and 1st 5 weeks of flower. Got to researching it more and it seems superthrive is for the slowing of flowering. I knew this I had read it before but apparently that info just dripped outta my brain through the waterholes. So here I am 5 weeks into flower and not to happy with development which I had attributed to spider mites. Maybe it isn’t I am thinking now maybe its that stupid superthrive. (I was given several bottles is why I was so happy to use it) Anyway my questions are what should I do at this point just cut it and hope they recover extending my flowering period. Will they recover and bulk more or am a screwed at this point or have I fucked up badly? Or is this just normal development and I am just paranoid? That being said I have spray azamax twice in the last 2 weeks and oil soap about 3 weeks ago for mites. That is what has hurt the white pistils but my ladybugs needed some help.
Also the image of the one leaf that is yellowing. Is that nutrient or light burn it has been happening more over on the side with the new lights but the other plants don’t seem to be to close. I thought maybe I was under or over watering but I have it in a fabric pot and don’t water until its lighter. Cant wait to harvest these and start out again correctly. This is my first time trying to do things right.
This grow has been fraught with problems mostly stemming from a deficiency in one plant that kept me in veg for way way way longer than I meant to and the plants got pretty big some huge and stretchy like. Now I feel like I have totally messed up again with that stupid superthrive which BTW does have the most awesome label in the world.
They were vegged and went through the first 4 weeks of flower under a 1200w (330w) and 900w (220w) phlizon which I moved around most days to try and get light to all the plants better. I got the 3000k 240w QBs a couple weeks ago I have 2 of them and the one large phlizon with the more natural spectrum still in there to get good coverage and mix spectrum some (the older one was super blurple compared to it the one I am using is still blurple as you can see but not to extremes like the older models, and took the 900 out.
I feel like a total idiot.
If I ever want to use this additive again what is the proper use? For Veg and Flower? I still hear things about people using it in flower though which has kept me confused.

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.
