    Hi all im growing with GH Flora series and am wondering if anyone who has had experience flushing thier systems could spread some wisdom? Best stuff to use, how to use, when to use? For Hydro/Flora series in bubbler at 6 weeks.

    Thanks in advance,

    you could use a fancy flushing agent, but you have to weigh the pros and cons. Flushing has a tendency to strip away needed minerals and nutes for the last week or so of bloom. Try reducing to 300 ppm in your last week. It wont leave residual flavor while still providing needed nutes. I have actually started using just tap water for the last few days as well. Helps ALOT!

    Already started reducing the nute content, will bring it down to 300 ish over next week. If I was to use a fancy flushing agent what would be a good one to use? How to apply?

    RO water for the last 48hours you have the plants in total darkness.

    I usually just run straight ph ballanced water for last 5 days or if you want a chemical flush Flora clean will do the job

    im using distilled water for flushing my hydro plants. using regular tap water could cause your plants to become chlorified. this is bad.
