flushing with miracle grow soil useless?
The answer is yes, but how do you plan to flush with soil??
I never flushed with miracle grow, but I heard of some people flushing it till they felt all the nutrients were gone. I just let them be though.
Flushing soils with time released fertilizers can be a big problem I hear because some of them release dependent on watering so you could potentially nute burn your plants by flushing (I don't know if this is the case with miracle grow specifically).
Not if you keep watering to wash out all the nutes which is how you flush that type of shit...
thanks, i flushed it with a lot of water and the plant is starting to look a lot better
The time release pellets in the media use up their charge in about 3 months so most of the fertilizers has already been released and a good flush will help at the end of flowering.
I grow with miracle soil and I pull the plant out of the dirt about 3 days before harvest and put them in a bucket of fresh water, it seems to flush pretty good. If you dont pull the plant out of the soil flushing it will help the buds soak up some extra water before curing/drying which is always good.
My experience with MG soil and nutes(they can grow some HUGE buds, however my current headstash doesn't utilize MG) is that you want to flush HEAVY, HEAVY for 2-3 days. The time release you can't really do anything with, but you can flush the hell out of them as they release the last of their nutes. 1.5-2 week flush. They will yellow and wither from over-watering, but than is a sign of decreased nutrient uptake. The downside is you need a longer drying period because you soaked them right before you chopped.
