    Ok so I am flushing my plants in soil I had a spider mite issue during flowering I used a insecticide soap to clear it up I did three treatments. Do I need to spray them with fresh water to get the pesticides off them??

    If I used pesticides during flowering I give them a light spray about a week before pulling. This gives them some time to dry. Don't want any additional water on them come drying time. Just be careful with humidity if your growing indoors.

    I wouldn't spray anything on them until I harvested. Google a thread called 'Bud washing' or something close to that on here, or look up 'Cervantes Bud washing / mold' or something like that on YouTube, it will teach you how to wash your buds for best results! A little more work but you'll feel better about it when you wash off the dead mites, their webs, chemical residue, dust and everything else and you'll have a much cleaner product too:hump:
    -good luck!

    Bud washing is easy and will pull off all kinds of shit .... Dust , hair , etc.

    I do a hot water , baking soda , lemon juice dip and shake. Triches WILL BE FINE. .
    Cleaner product .

    Water curing for stuff that's really loaded with PM or other molds, pesticides. Rinsing is next best and leaves flavors. Water curing ? Zero taste.

    Never had taste or burn issues - i do the hot water wash first , then a cold water final . Dunk and twist in water by STEM ONLY . Hang to drip dry then on mesh rack ... lots of variants to this .

    I modded a slightly different step ( if small amount if PM is found ) i mix water / peroxide spray bottle ... spray buds before dunk , then proceed to bud wash. It really cleans off that shit without much effort. End product looks picture perfect .

    Just looking at the leftover wash water will convince anyone . I dont do all grows just once in awhile if i notice issues.
