Organic Soil: Plants not fading - I messed up HELP!

I am just starting to spot amber trichomes - very few - I am around day 61 give or take (minus) 7-12 days since I messed up my notes - My plant is not fading at all! There is so much bullshit info on flushing that I have been so confused and I was told to feed until the end, which seems like BS! Plants look completely green and I am so close to needing to chop them down! Is my only option to run gallons on gallons of water through the pots to reduce the remaining nutrients in the soil?

I remember a video saying loading it up with sugar will cause the microbes to stop feeding on nutrients, which creates the fade - is that true? I am using black molasses but I'm just completely lost for what to do. If this is true I am thinking about flushing with water to push out nutrients & then give the microbes sugar in hopes of a light fade!

I feel like I am fucked! Save me with your knowledge & experience!

Is this true organic growing or organic + supplement with organic nutes? Either way, don't freak out. I'm thinking you don't have to drench them with water before giving them some water with a little sugar in it (or molasses or whatever you prefer).

One of the things that happens when you add sugar is the microbial population goes up and they grab all the nutrients. They later die and release them again slowly.

I don't think you are fucked at all. Some say flush others say don't bother. My last outside grow I didn't flush because of bud rot I freeked out and chopped my plants now I know I could have just cut the rot out and watch em closely. But because I cut them 2 weeks early I didn't flush them and we all loved every bit of that smoke. Wasn't harsh at all. I hung dried them then mason jarred them great smoke. So calm down start flushing if you want or dont, cut em and hang em. Good luck and we like pics. Post em up lol

Yes true organic. I'm using Miracle Grow Organic Soil + Dr.Earth Flower Girl Organic in flower - it really looks amazing so far - I have done one feeding of molasses at 2 tablespoons per gallon and I am also wondering how often I can do that? Smells amazing so I am just nervous since this is my second harvest ever. So it is true that the microbes will just focus on the sugar and help with the fade?

That is great to hear in this situation - I am just hoping it's not super harsh or whatever happens when there are too many nutrients leftover - I do have a pic I should have posted I'll see if I can edit it in and add it. Pretty new here. Hearing your story does make me feel a bit better and it's not game over if I miss the fade

You have nothing to worry about. A friend of mine who is strict organic says you don't have to flush in organic soil. I stop giving them nutes a couple of weeks before the end. His stuff smells and tastes great. No hint of any excess nutrients.

Yeah its kind of funny.....i jad a plant i did an experiment on. Always kept the soil the wettest out of the whole room, all different plants too. At the end the wettest one was the best one...now it only yielded 20gms. The yield was the main reason i didnt keep doing it. Stubbornness too....that has changed!

Im doing it from now on...fuck it!
