I think he is talking about to remove chlorine and add his nutrients into a tank to use to feed the plants
2 questions for ya heisen...

I defoliated yesterday today and i noticed the 6 site i did is eating slower than the 6 site i have not defoliated yet. Is this normal? (Less plant to eat maybe)

2nd question. Since I’ve defoliated my c02 meter has been reading off the charts! Like 2000ppm and it’s not even running. Is this because the plants are not uptaking the c02 due to the defoliation?

Thank you!

Okay I’ll have to keep that in mind when i defoliated that it will dictate the strength of my feed at that time. How long do you suppose before my c02 level comes back down?

I was under the impression the heavier defoliation would be beneficial in a vertical style grow. The light penetration is great afterwards.

Its really up to you man,I defoliate whats necessary to clean things up.
 
Last week I use dry kool bloom.really flattens them up about 150 ppm only.stgaight water flush is pointless unless you wanna do it the last 3 days before chop.its not like dirt.once you cut them off there cut off.
hey heisen im in week 8 right now everything is looking good. building off what you said, what makes you say straight water flush is pointless? i was thinking about doing something similar to what you said and just using MOAB only (no base nutes etc) during my last week but wanted to get your opinion on that. you dont think using dry kool bloom or moab in my case for the flush affects taste or anything?
 
I've never had nutes effect taste in rdwc.if you get down to the last week your ppm should almost be water anyway.you can run a 3 day straight water if you want but I never really saw a difference.by that time plants aren't really drinking much.
Some guys will do 3 days straight water and empty res for a couple days to stress the plants into trich mode.

okay cool. im gonna try some side by side variations of using moab over shooting powder and flushing with ro vs using moab only during the final week flush

ive heard a couple guys at the hydro store mention that you can flush the flavor right out of the buds in hydro if you flush with 0ppm water. is anything like this possible? obviously id like to avoid flushing out any flavor or smell lol
