Science says flushing makes no difference to yield, THC or terpenes or taste. It seems like a legit study. If you want to look at it backwards it means you can save money on nutrients for the last two weeks.Β  I hope they do one in the future regarding darkness before harvest. Smile br />
I am sure this must have been referenced previously because there are many followers of Shane from Migro.

You betcha --> Is Flushing Worth It? (No!)
There is another study I linked to in that thread that shows the exact same results so, seems like decent evidence.
Good that this vid is posted here too now though. πŸ™‚ πŸ‘Β

Never understood why some growers give there plants loads of food, mid flower (burn all there leaves) and then spendΒ  the next two week flushing it out before harvestΒ

Everybody that checked the differences between flush and no flush knows flushing does make a difference.

Also it is known that a generic Medical is chemical same to the original. Anyway generic and original work different for people.

I do not think we are able to analyze the important parts of it. Just remember we do not know 90% of anything energy or material.

They have the misguided opinion that loads more food means bigger buds πŸ˜€

@jacks_farm and they follow what the bottle, or manufactures guide says. Its not their fault though, as ZN said, they think more food equals bigger plants.

I think that is the case for a lot of growers because they need to flush out excess salts in the medium before harvest.

Nitrogen encourage the canopy and buds to strech and Bush out and it very high ec (salt content)

so I don't want any nitrogen in my root mass by week 6 (12/12) and want to see the lower canopy drain the nitrogen from the leaves and as the leaves fall off it helps to reduce humidty and reduce humidty helps to increase the amount resin the plant produces, letting the plants really dry out a few times at this stage seems to increase resin productionΒ 

when the plants in mid/late flower it uses more sugar to mature the budsΒ 

so use something like (top max), (honey or brown sugar in hot water)Β  to make the buds sweet and denseΒ 

if you feed a plant what it needs at the right time why do you need to flush the root mass ?

why do you need to flush the root mass ?

1. I do not think if you work organic its needed to flush. But I do not know that.

2. It does not matter what part you flush as the conentration of salts in water with membrances equalizes.

You can see this with 2 eggs just put salt on the yellow of one and salt on the clear part of the other.

2 hours later you will see an obvious difference.

Means if you flush one part of a plant nature will take minerals out of the other to equalize the molecules per litre.

Other then with the egg salt can pass the roots membrane.

Plants are like children - always surprising you.

sorry @James I kind of understand what your saying aboutΒ 

"conentration of salts in water with membrances equalizes" but doesn't really answer my question.

just saying if you feed a plant what it needs at the right time, you don't need to flushΒ 

IMO flushing a plants can be very stressful to a plant in late flower and really increase the humidty in the flower room, seen growers snap buds and there not sure when to water next, can really throw things offΒ 

Think my plants about 3 weeks in flower (12/12) under a net and its settled and happy getting its 2ltrs of water every 2-3 days ( start adding honey soon)

don't want to move them till harvest or cause them too much stress
