    Whats the point?

    Hi ukgrow :)

    When do I flush? People who flush do so around 2 weeks or so before harvest
    Whats the point? Flushing is done to leach out the chemicals in the soil and reduce the ferts to give a cleaner smoke and paler product
    Is it worth it? In organics no it isn't. If you're growing with artificial fertilisers then yes.
    Do you flush? if not why No I never flush but I grow ROLS (recyled organic living soil) and No Til

    Are you growing in dirt? and what ferts are you using on the girls?

    that.. and if the ash isnt white .. or there is a pop when you are smoking it.. also means that there was no flush.

    If your over feeding chem. Ferts. You can get build up of salts which will start burning plant bad.
    Thats also when to flush and cut back on ferts. Less is more.organic fixes most probs.✌

    Sometimes my information is conflict or to popular trends, however I am a successful cultivar. I recommend that you flush much more frequently, in particular when you notice leaf coloring problems. Leaf coloring problems usually occur when plants are over fed nutrients, most, no correction all rookie growers overfeed. And over watering it is easier to overcome over water than over feed. If your leaf tips are burned up flush, if your leaf edges turn up flush. If your leaf tips turn down flush. Flushing is safe insurance against problems. After many failed attempts at grows I learned less is more flushing is next to free and will never hurt you. Think of the coloration of the fluids that run out as plant piss, salts and build up of nutients leave giving you a clean playing field. Just go flush them NOW. Be safe enjoy the fresh new growth that will respond
