When you overwater super late the plant just pushes a bunch of new green growth without trichomes. And is a perfect ticket to moldville.
It actually sets your potency back and gives you el cheapo filler buds.

lol so true. i have 1 plant that's very short and young with huge fans that cover way to much. i showed a pic to another grower for his opinion if i should trim it.
he knows i grow in FFOF and only use str8 water, after all of 3/10's of a second looking at the pic he said " that's a calmag deficiency"
at least i now know who not to ask for advice, lol
Reminds me of Fletch
Willy: What the hell you need ball bearings for?
Fletch: Awww, come on guys, it's so simple maybe you need a refresher course. [leans arm on hot engine part, then jumps away] Heyya! It's all ball bearings nowadays. Now you prepare that Fetzer valve with some 3-in-1 oil and some gauze pads, and I'm gonna need 'bout ten quarts of anti-freeze, preferably Prestone. No, no make that Quaker State.

That's what I want to say next time someone asks me, "ball bearing deficiency."
"oh you didn't know?"
"It's all ball bearings nowadays..."

lmao
you are 100% right about the calmag. I'm new to the scene, like 2-3 months, and yes, VPD is new to me, I get it, i already have a VPD chart posted on my wall. But all I hear is Cal-mag this epsom salt that, maybe i'll buy some one day once i'm convinced that's the answer to all my problems instead of alcohol.

Another one is when people stop giving water the last week or two. All it does is dry your plant out and makes it less sticky. If you want sticky buds, water them the night before you harvest. Commercial growers around here dry them out before they even harvest to insure they can be dry enough to go into those stupid tumblers. Just to ensure we all have brown crumbly harsh weed I guess...

People are so fucking convinced that flushing is real on reddit. LIKE SUPER CONVINCED that it's 'Science' . They have clearly never done a side by side clone experiment. lmaoooo

NPK research by Nirit Bernstein​

Study suggests starving plants increases potency and terps.

How many side by sides have you done? I think staving plants at the end of life has benefits. For one thing it speeds up the curing process, and studies show that stressing plants by starvation increases potency. In my opinion well cures bud tastes better than mean green. Some people like the green taste, some don't.
Another reason is some strains won't ripen properly unless I quit feeding- they just keep foxtailing forever. To each his own...

I'm on board with this.
I've tried both. I don't personally notice a great difference and it's never greatly impacted how the strains I've worked with finish up. I've never done GC-MS tests to find out what differences it might truly make, but at the end of the day, it's the perceptive differences that matter in most cases.

I think it's pretty economical to be able to cut out or greatly reduce your feed for the last little bit if it doesn't terribly impact yield or quality. If you put that on a large scale, that's some serious $$$ you're saving.

My nutes are cheap. I spend about $10 to grow a lb of bud. So cost doesn't matter, I just don't want it too green.

I wonder if using plain water (in soil, in my case) does almost the same thing as flushing. My thinking is the water would dilute whatever is left from previous watering with nutrients and perhaps make those nutrients more useful for the plant.

Crank the dehumidifier the last few weeks if you want more resin and blow the fan on them.

That's true It wasn't a side by side and it was just one strain. I flushed first grow didnt the second and it was a clone and taste the same

I think VPD has become a thing because of LEDs and the amount of new growers.

People that have been growing for decades were managing VPD without knowing it, but it was also easier because lighting was far less efficient. Lights were heat sources and were self limiting in terms of the PPFD you could put down before you set your house on fire. Higher heat = lower RH... VPD kinda managed itself.

For new folks, measuring VPD is a way to know if they are where they need to be without years of experience to fall back on.
I still dont pay any attention to vpd and have used hlg led for the last 5 yrs and have no issues. My humidity in the winter is always between 20-30%. To me vpd is similar to flushing = no benefits for me.

That's wild! I always notice a difference .. it shows in the leaves they'll wrinkle they'll have less fingers which probably = less photosynthesis that's wild!!
