Why is it po that citrus fruits were not recommended for FFJ? According to our Organic trajner, it can be as long as you will only use it for citrus family. Thank you.

Does white sugar is really can be use in the absence of molasses or crude sugar? How about brown sugar? Honey?

Citrus fruits are acidic. Although plants need slightly acidic soils to absorb certain nutrients, it might not be good to use it for your FFJ. FFJ is mainly used to help your plants during reproductive stage.

Brown sugar is better if you can't get molasses or crude sugar. White sugar is not recommended since it goes through a bleaching process. The purpose of brown/crude sugar/molasses is to feed your microorganisms with simple sugars that are easily digestible for them. I haven't personally tried honey for concoctions purposes but the cost of honey might be counterproductive.
