I'm about 12 days to harvest on some autos been feeding gh3part in Happy Frog soil since they were about 3wks old. Was wondering when should I flush and how? Or if I should even flush at all. I read some people don't flush. What do you guys do?

Most here do not flush and that is with hydro........ I don't flush my soil...... with proper cure you'll never know the difference.

Can you detail ? This because the concept of flushing is different from grower to grower.

Thanks :cool:

For me, flushing really helps swell the calyx and really adds girth to the buds.
IMO, nuits are simply not needed the last couple of weeks at all.
I have ran grows that I have flushed, and not flushed, and the only difference is not flushing just seems to swell the buds a little bigger. It is hard to say if I gained weight or not, just from simple observation.

Another big reason, for me, is running nuits till the end is just wasting nuits.


By "flushing" at the end of a cycle just means I feed nothing but stright water at the end, not a full blown"flush". A full blown flush to me means you run water thru your medium until nothing but clean water comes out.
Hope that makes sense.

Yeah I can see the not wanting to waste nutrients on plants that are coming down soon. I hve 5 plants coming down this week and their last feed was Sunday. They are coasting on water til the chop. When I say flush I am talking like 4u, excess water run through the medium for the purpose of flushing salts and what not. This I don't do. I do like to let them coast on water though. jmo

I have found that on the first couple runs of a new strain, I will not flush at the end as I am not exactly sure how long they will go before harvesting. Once I am sure of the time frame then I may flush if I think it will help. The last few times that I did flush on some then not on others, once it was cured, I couldn't tell much difference. :)

bigger calyx when starved? this is interesting, I never noticed this. I don't flush anymore, the taste of my cured buds is amazing, perfect, makes me salivate, I doubt it can get any better...
