Hi all

Ik I've been the biggest pain in the arse since joining Percy's but I'm looking for more advice. 

I'm on the home stretch. Been checking the trichomes and the majority are cloudy, still a few shining like a diamond but on the whole, it's looking sweet.

What do I do when it comes to flushing though? I've been doing a bit research on whether it's any more beneficial too flush through or not and I'm wondering what others think is best? 

I've bought a hanging airer from my local hydro shop which as they will all be ready at the same time, im going to put back in the tent and run the extractor only as it's pretty stinky to have hanging in the house.

Some nice looking nugs there ! Bet you can't wait !

Can't help you on the flushing I'm afraid, I'm just as much in the dark as you 😂

Time to grow old disgracefully.

Hey 👋 

why don’t you try both? It will help you make your own mind up whether to flush or not to flush . In my opinion I don’t really notice much difference   But some people say they do . From what I can see u have 3 plants 🌱 flush two and don’t flush the other .  .

Flushing is all about remove excess food(salts) in the root mass.

If most the fan leaves are green, good chance you need to flush the root mass 

If most the leaves are pale/yellow your plants have very little food in the root mass so there no point flushing the root mass 

Harvesting a plant with a high amount of food(salt) in the root mass,  does it make any difference to the quality of the harvest ( I have no idea) 

Never tried it and its really on the fence when you bring this up on the forums 

I like to think you get a better smoke if the plant has used up, most its food.

@mrgreenthumb2020

I was thinking of doing that mate. I've heard conflicting stories about flushing so might be a good idea to try it and see. 

Thanks for the reply mate

@jacks_farm

Cheers for the reply mate. 

Its looking more yellow than green now and its losing leaves rapidly every day so I don't think it needs flushed but it's one of those things that you're just not sure of at all.

I flush in salt based to remove the remaining salts in the medium so the plant gets nothing and the leaves yellow off quickly...I like no chlorophyl when I chop if possible, saves the nasty taste if I smoke it too early, lol

I dont flush in the Sohum Smile

No you haven't mate. How are we suppose to learn and grow if we don't ask shit? We are a societal species and we are supposed to help out and support each other and nobody has all the answers to all the questions... well maybe @zn... definitively @Macky ... Silly

I grow on soil and try to give them just pH'ed water the last 2-3 weeks. Like @jacks_farm said, if the leaves are almost yellow, no need to flush much.

That's a great idea. In the end everybody's garden has its unique charachteristics and environment, so what might work for me might not for you and vive versa. Just try flushing some and don flush the other and find what works best for you 😉
