i am not sure it was a random seed my friend gave me. I think I’ll just flush it and see what happens. How long would you recommend to flush in coco? And what ph for coco when flushing

I'm not a coco grower. I'll let @Dirtbag answer that one.

I like to use plain water for the last 10 days or so in coco. What I like to do is get lots of runoff for the first few days to really bring the runoff ppm down low, and then water it less frequently after that, allowing it to dry up a good bit between waterings.
But everyone has their preferred methods.

Tap water or RO water

Tap if it has a ppm is below 150. If not, cut it with RO to bring it under 150ppm. Otherwise, plain RO is fine too.
For all of my grow I’ve been watering once a day so when you say less frequent would you mean 1 day water 1 day no water?

Pretty much, but you'll have to be the judge with regard to when they need it again. You don't want them goin bone dry, but I was usually able to let them go 2 or 3 days between waterings at the end.

I’m not sure if my plants are dried fully yet. Some branches have a snapping sound others are still like bending a bit. The smell of hay is subtle now not fully gone though

You can probably start curing them now. What is their RH?

Put them in a ziplock with a hygrometer and zip it. Wait 30 minutes and see what it reads.

Right now the humidity is 47 but for the past week it’s been around what the photo shows

Then they are probably ready to cure. Break off a small bit and open it up. Still damp? No? then Smoke it.

I’m going to trim and start curing but look at my airy nugs! Would that be just genetics or maybe I flowered to fast?
Airy nugs could be a few things. What you fed or did not feed, light quality, ... all kinds of things can affect it. It's difficult to say.

You're going to get some hay smell and loss of some terpenes when the drying room gets into the 80s. Why the big spikes in temp and humidity inside a tent? I would expect those kind of swings in an uninsulated shed but not in a tent in a room.

If you think you'll consume the whole crop within a few months there is really no need for curing imho. Curing is more for long term storage.

Curing is also to bring the flavors out to their fullest. I get enough from each harvest so there is never a shortage of buds. I do smoke out of it once it's dry enough to burn correctly, but there's always plenty curing in the jars too.
