hi guys quick question..  I've been checking out the guides 


Flushing Before Harvest in Coco



A good flush in coco will take about 10-14 days. This will depend on the size of the plant. The bigger the plant is, the longer you should flush for.



Start off with the big flush of 3 times water as you have coco in your pot. This will remove all nutrients from the medium, and allow the plant to start using stored nutrients in the leaves and buds.



This flush should be pH'd at 5.8-6.2. Allow the coco to sit for 48 hours, and then water the plant with just water, every other day. This will keep the coco saturated, and constantly flush out any salts that have leached from the plant.



After 6 or 7 days, do one more big flush. There is no need to pH the water this time, as you want to encourage the plant to use whatever is left in its nutrients stores, by locking the nutrients out in the medium.



The plant will begin to turn yellow, and can be harvested after about 3 days after the second big flush.




so ive done my initial flush of 3 times the volume of the pot, it says use just water after this so is this non ph adjusted water or adjusted until harvest ?? 


sorry guys first time so im not sure...

@echo For the first week i like to give 6.2 water, this give the plant the chance to use up anything in the coco without locking it out

Then after a week, when you can be pretty sure any food in the medium has been used, normal water will be fine as the pH doesn't matter. There is no food in the medium for it to eat any way Smile

I only used to flush for 4 days max in flood and drain with 6PH water. I would taper off the EC slightly in the last 1-2 weeks before the flush
