Hello all. Super skunk autoflower sprouted in 5 gal hydro on march15. It’s a feakin bush, looks like buds are everywhere, keeping watch on my nutes and pH always in the 5.5-6 range. My question to you professionals is….why is this plant sprouting 3 finger leaves. I defoliated some of the big fan leaves to allow air and light to flow. It looks happy and healthy just wondering about the 3 finger leaves. Also on a hydro grow, when do I do a nutrient flush? Some people say a week before harvest but I want to be sure. Thank you all for all your help during my first ever grow.

An article on 3 point leaves but if you’re well Into flower I wouldn’t worry about those three leaves just keep some good air flow then the bottom of your plant. Ive never done a flush before harvest. Just plain water for a sip to drink if they need it and when the trichomes are ready harvest time… I’m sure others here do flush prior to harvest so perhaps someone else will chime in. Nice looking plant dougieB

If I go by time I’m at 10 weeks of flowering. I was looking at a possible June 17 harvest. Or at least in that area. Trichomes are mostly clear, some white, a few ambers here and there. Still a lot of white hairs, a lot of them are amber as well but yes I was thinking around 6/17 for a harvest. That would put me at 71 days. I attached some trichome pix. What do you think? Remember, I’m new at this lol
