    hi everyone,

    i have a question about watering the plants in the last week of flowering?
    my concern is the salts residues that possibly may be in the soil

    first of all i never flushed this grow!

    it's week 8 and I already stopped the nutes feeding, now I'm just giving them RO water normally has i would in feeding.
    From what i read it's best to give 1 to 2 weeks of 'flushing' so the question is... can i harvest in 10 days (which is a bit more than a week)
    if in the last waterings i gave them a bit more of water kinda like a 'mini-flush' or should i just wait one more week sticking to the original plan
    (harvest in 10 weeks) assuming of course that the plants have ripen

    thanks
    :peace:


    this is just for show of :lol: :weed: :lol:

    This one should be fine. I would definitely perform the flush ASAP. The 10 days should do fine. Alternatively you could flush with Clearex, which only takes 3-4 days.

    anywhere from 7-21 days will be just fine for a good flush bro

    thanks everyone for replys

    concerning Clearex, finalflush all this kind of products i prefer not to use them! dunno why! just dont feel like using them ... :lol:

    about the molasses... i read so many threads about it, that my final conclusion is that is not worth it, actually there is a thread of a guy
    that already made side-by-side test and at the end he didn't see any differences...so!! i don't see the point in using it

    but thats just my humble opinion

    even to lower the water PH i'm using lemon juice (citric acid) trying to be more organic as possible in these last 2 weeks

    I would flush..Flushing washes the nutes out of the soil so they plants are just up taking water the last week or so this makes the MJ taste better and flushes all the chemicals out of the plant. Just over fill the pots once let it drain and do it again.Then your good to go.

    I would give two weeks total just to be safe. We're only talking four more days here.

    lol... I know it doesn't hurt waiting 4 more days,but the thing is that I was hoping to harvest in the weekend!! would had more time to harvest calmly not in a rush cause of my working schedules during week days

    thanks anyway for sharing your opinion

    :peace:

    I would harvest when the plant tells you its ready. Wait till the trichs are where you want them and then harvest. Dont get anxious and harvest too soon because your buds wont be at full strength. Just let it ride man.

    No problem that I can see harvesting this week end. One good flush is good..

    if u wait till the hairs are 40% 50% brown/red then flush for 2 weeks u will have some kick ass bud. U need to flush for this amount of time as u are not just flushing the nutes out of the soil/medium but also out of the plant. Just an idea.....worked for me evrytime....ermmm i mean some1 i know haha.

    they will be ready by the weekend eheh (crossing my fingers) only 1 of 5 looks bit late but all the others look pretty damm good they are very very close...

    trics are 90% milky 10% clear in majority, in some buds can even see some amber trics
    pistils are 60% white 40% orange, don't see much more bud development going on so everything points to a near harvest

    woohooo :weed:
