Hello everyone. Hope you all are smoking good this morning and having a cool day! I have a question. I started flushing my cannabis plants ok Monday 04/01/19 with just regular faucet water ph to 6.4.. how many times do you flush with water. Also How long will it be before I cut them down for harvest. Last question is if the pots are still heavy at the end of the flushing days then could I still cut for harvest or have to wait until they drink all the water??? Please help and thanks!!!

Don't worry about whether the pots are heavy when it comes time to cut. There is no impact to the plants' quality due to this. The bud content doesn't vary over the course of the day, or in immediate response to normal watering and feeding.

My advice is don't get wrapped up in this. If you're close to harvest, just quit feeding the plant, water as needed until it's time to cut. "Flushing", per se, does nothing. Despite the myth, there are no "excess" nutes in your plant, and flushing doesn't remove anything.

Thanks bossman and I understand what your saying. One last question and it might be stupid but how long does a plant need to flush for?? Thanks again

My opinion? Plants don't need to flush at all. The science is clear; flushing does nothing except reduce additional nutes available in the soil. Most people who believe in flushing do it for a week, maybe two.

I would let the medium dry out unless you are doing no till or something. PITA messing with wet medium when cleaning a room. Once the plants are chopped it can take multi days after that to dry out if you dont. From the perspective of if you want to quick flip them.

I concur. Flushing is sort of an urban legend, and like any good urban legend, there will be many who swear by it. I have never flushed anything in over 3 decades of growing, except my 1st grow, when I overfertilized...the classic rookie's mistake! Some say that flavor is impacted, or that it is too harsh, but I've never noticed any real difference. If it is floating in a pool of chemicals, I might feed it water only for a few days, but for most applications, I don't see any benefit. This is only my opinion. I also think nutrients are way overused and made a lot more complicated than it needs to be, but that is an argument for another day.

[QUOTE = "OldManRiver, post: 2243438, membro: 85719"] La mia opinione? Le piante non hanno bisogno di sciacquare affatto. La scienza è chiara; lo sciacquone non fa altro che ridurre gli altri nuti disponibili nel terreno. La maggior parte delle persone che credono nel rossore [/ CITAZIONE]
Buonasera quindi secondo lei tutti quei sapientoni che coltivano e quei produttori di fertilizzanti e di semi, non dovremmo considerarli e ascoltarli se tutti dicono che e essenziali quasi oblico prima del raccolto rischiaquare le radici?

[QUOTE = "Ghost91809, post: 2243396, membro: 98430"] Grazie boss e capisco cosa stai dicendo. Un'ultima domanda e potrebbe essere stupida, ma per quanto tempo una pianta deve lavare per ?? Grazie ancora [/ QUOTE]
Se viene consigliato di attendere che la pianta sia aschiutta perche non farlo ?

Hey, Thanks for sharing such an insightful information about harvesting. As far as people are getting attracted towards planting and harvesting the seeds, one should also take some precautions of your garden or plants should not get affected by pests and its issues. One should already be done by pest controlling from the professionals like pest control west Sacramento CA .
