Hi @Jisaac904! Start to flush when you see the first milky trichomes, then take a daily closeup look at your trichs and adapt your flush period to their evolution / maturation. Once you get the trichomes as you like them, proceed to harvest. In soil this should lasts a few days, at least 5, at max 12. Put a tiny fan blowing a slight continuous breeze onto your containers to prevent overwatering / long drying, try to decrease your Relative Humidity as much as you can to encourage resin production, and enjoy your harvest! Hope that makes sense, keep us up-to-date, happy growing :facepunch:

Hello ! Generally It's 7 to 15 days in soil and 7 to 10 in hydro. Now to me the main reason you can't loose time is because most of the growers are flushing when the desired trichomes ratio is almost ready (80% milky ) so I think that you can only drag out until they are ready , maybe 3 weeks ! And if you drag out too long then the plant will turns out of nutrients , 1st she will get yellow by consuming her nutrients stocked in the leaves then if she can't feed her self she dies. So you can drag out as long as these parameters are good. I hope it will help you :v::skin-tone-3::grin:

@Jisaac904 If you are looking to drag out a flush then no worries my friend as long as you are ok with a more Couch-like high! In all reality you can just let her fade away till the end although I do recommend looking at the Trichomes on the plant with a 10$ handheld microscope from amazon instead. Clear -> Cloudy - Amber is their life-cycle. With the microscope look for the Trichomes to be Cloudy for a mental high and an Amber color for a couch-like high. As long as you are fine with the Trichomes going more towards Amber and giving a body high then you can let her flush her self to death. I have done it plenty as long as you keep giving water you will be fine :sunglasses: Personally I harvest way before this at 75% cloudy Trichomes. Hope this helps answer the question!

hey @Jisaac904 good question bro ! in soil a longer flush is better anyway. I used to sweat by the three week plain water flush, but i got away ok with a 2 week flush just fine. You dont really want to go much over three weeks though might lead to deficiencies, but in soil, you basically can. Plant's looking good man, nice grow ! :rocket:
