Flushing.. Im thinking about starting to flush, as described in week 19 dairy update but Im fearing that it might be to early or late or if I really need to flush two weeks. My pots are only 3,5-4 liters and nutrients is organic. So how do I know when and how long to flush?

Hi @Broedt! Take a daily close look at the trichomes, they will tell you when to start to flush. Once you see the first milky trichomes you can trigger the flush phase, trichomes will take several days to turn 100% milky, usually between 8 and 12 days, this will be your flush duration. Watch the color of the runoff, it should get more clean & clear each time you flush. Try to decrease your relative humidity for this last week, this will encourage resin production and will prevent from mold/bud-rot issues. Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and enjoy your harvest :facepunch:

Hello ! 1st after reading your post I can tell you that : Bloombastic isn't organic at all (even with the green looking colour) and yes it increase the taste and smell like a beast (the trichomes production too if done at the proper moment). About the flush in soil the less you can do is about 7 days but the best you can do is 2 weeks (or more) , I would go with 10 days to be sure you get rid of the Bloombastic ( it's a powerful nutrient). I don't think it is too late as what I can see on your pics is a clear/milky trichomes ratio (more milky) and as it's a sativa you can harvest at different trichomes ratio for differents effects. If you start to flush now then in 10 days I supose that your trichome ratio will be around 90% milky so a good time to harvest a sativa. I hope it will help you :grin::+1:
