Hi @LouShott! Well NFT does not really differ from any other hydroponic system, so you should plan a 5 to 7 days flush duration. Trichomes will tell you when to start (when they turn from clear to milky) and when to stop (when they turn from milky to amber). You will need to decrease your relative humidity for the last days, in order to maximize terpenes potency and resin production. Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and enjoy your harvest :facepunch:

Hello bro ! You want to start the flush one week before harvest when the trichomes are almost 100% Cloudy (90% cloudy Because the last 10% will mature during the flush week ). To flush no need to think too much , NFT such as hydro or aeroponics are recyrculating hydro system and in hydro the flush is done after a week with clear PH'd water . I hope it will help you :grin::v::skin-tone-3:

Hey LouSchott, you always want a flush just to avoid that harshness on the inhale, no matter what system you're using. Nutes stick to that film more than in ebb and flow hydro systems that dont use NFT , but they get flushed out pretty quick. When you get your trychomes perfectly how you want them , then just go straight plain water for two days or 60hrs and you'll be golden, hope this helps ! :rocket:

Hey there @louShott! Flushing with NFT is exactly the same as Hydro! Simply Flush it for 4-12 days (I recommend 5) and its literally that simple however depending on your reservoir size you might want to PH more often than normal during this process (just check it daily). This is another reason to love Hydro techniques because you can time the harvest window very very well. If you want to get an even smoother smoke you can turn the lights off for 48 hours before harvest! Best of luck with this and please don't forget to update us with the smoke results :sunglasses:
