From what I've seen, most sugars ending "ous" are simple to begin with, only one or 2 molecules of sugar. Glucose, fructose things like that.
So why split those from sucrose? Does it make them more available, just wondering?
Most fruit juices are fructose, aren't they?
I think that molasses is a long chain carb, and those are not the best suited for plants, like everyone is saying, and better used in teas where the bacteria can break it down before it hits the soil, ala Nef's post.
The only thing I've gotten out of molasses drenches is gnats.
Sucrose is nearly a simple sugar but not simplist and more semi simple, im led to believe proper simple sugars are stand alone like glucose or fructose, but 2 simple sugars combined whichever way those sugar making type peeps do it, ( Tate & Lyle comes to mind mega sugar God, jeez man i swear). well yes combined those 2 make sucrose, tis classed more a semi simple sugar , although still very much simple`ish and close as you`ll get if your not a true simple sugar to being one , i mean sucrose well that would be first promoted to that simple sugar title if those sugar making dudes decided to make room for one more simple`en, well so i`d like to think hehehee........ in Jimmiland, I`m bloody confusing myself now, i`m blabbering on talking shite man, mind you i`m digging it cus i understand it atmo, probably not next time i look and read it and i`ll more than likely think what a twat, i like to think not at total twat but a daft twat , but tomorrows another day in`t it. Big up the daft twats brigade is all i can say.
Dextrose is simplist of lot and fructose close to that in that same category. Tbh many times in past ive just used sucrose dissolved in boiling water to my mix, I mean i get where your coming from and tbh what with being lazy git and all that malarky it`s easier and less faffing , maybe like you say its all about making things easier for plant to take up through roots in molecular way( massive word ) feck knows tbh Horsey but i would think that myself
Oh yes and another thing, simple carbs can send the herd in your pots in to feeding frenzy so they go crackers feeding on it and then they can become lazy, so can`t be arsed to do their job properly, which may cause problems quite easily in itself, well that`s if i remember righly, i mean it may be too much use of any sugars that does it, but im pretty nearly sure it`s more simple sugars, i can`t remember full on tbh. Anyhow enough rambling on i`m sure you get my drift. Yo to the "drift" word
At least half that has gotta be right, i`m feeling lucky.
