Hello! Ph around 6.5 in soil. Depending on how you flush : 1) you can flush by pooring water in the pot until the water runoff goes from brown to clear ( most of the time twice the pot volume in water). 2) You water with plain water during 2 weeks to get rid of the nutrients.

Hey there Farmermo! You should flush your plants whenever they show signs of toxicity, Nutrient lockout or right before harvest for a smoother smoke! For best results highly recommend a PH between 6-6.3 when flushing your plants. If you are flushing plants from an toxicity then 3-6 days of flush depending on the severity of the nutrient toxicity will suffice. If you are flushing your plants before harvest I recommend a full week to allow time for the plant to work out all those excess nutrients to make your smoke much much smoother! I hope this helps with your question Farmermo! Feel free to ask anything else you may need :sunglasses:

Hey there being soil growers were going to want our ph staying in the range of about 6.2-6.8. In regards to flushing i know many people only do at the end of flowering before harvest, however for example the fox farm line shows a small flush at the end of the veg cycle .

Hi @Farmermo! In soil flushing only occurs in case of salt buildups / nutrients toxicity / or during the final week before the chop. Ph must remain the same than your regular waterings: in the 6.0-6.5 pH range. So if you don't see any signs of toxicity (dark leaves, clawling leaves, burnt tips...) just keep on feeding as usual. Happy growing :facepunch:

in soil you want to avoid flushing unless necessary (over feeding or burn) , you do want to start flushing with plain RO PH6.5 water around two weeks before the chop. Good luck getting to the end my friend! :rocket:
