Questions [Completed] When to start flushing this grow
Hello reader, I have a bit of a dilemma. I cant seem to make up my mind on when is the right time to start flushing my grow. A little background for you.
I have 5 Sensei Seeds Skunk #1 growing in my 1.2x1.2 with 2 x TS1000 and 1xBurple 150w. Im on week 15 from sprouting. This was my first coco grow and I did make a couple mistakes.
First I wasn't watering till runoff for most of the vegetative state (Dont really even know why as I knew I should have been doing it... Ill blame the ADHD hehe). Second off I think I was a little overboard with my fertigation as Í was following a nute suppliers suggestions. Well the plants were trained hard and SCROGed pretty nicely so now I have a spread out canopy. I forgot to lollipop or remove the lower growth because these plants were so "small" and still are. So im losing alot of top cola size because of this.
But im now at flower week 7 and a halfish and I am wondering when I should start flushing these plants for harvest. I know I have atleast a week or more to go but im uncertain of when to start doing so.
Heres how my canopy looks now:
And here are some shots of the buds from today:
I was a little hesitant to post a question here about this as I fell I have done these girls wrong somehow as they are so tiny. But I really wanna get the most out of these girls and do the rest correctly. And any help is appreciated, thanks for reading!
I am by no means an expert, and hopefully more seasoned growers can chime in on this, but my thoughts are that you might wanna give them a few more weeks? Do you have a loup or microscope so you can take a closer look on the trichomes? And if you can let them go a few more weeks you might wanna prune away some of the lower tops so the top buds can bulk up some more.
I wouldn't be to much concerned about the final flush. When you feel that now its pretty much time to harvest you can start flushing for a few days. Especially if you have a flushing agent like flora kleen. In coco flushing is pretty fast. I do flush sometimes mid grow if i get nutrient lockouts, or before I switch to flowering nuts, and during the last few days before harvest. But I have also harvested without flushing. 🙂
Anyways, it all depends on how those trichomes are looking.
Hey @sausaG, you got some good looking plants, @clist has covered everything really well, the only thing I'll add is, what does the breeder recommend as far as a flowering time? If your growing Sensi seeds then they have a pretty good recommendation as far as time and together with a loupe or micro scope then "you da man!" Good luck
