So here's a question for all the growers out there . I miss judged the timing of my flush I was a bit pre-emptive on starting . I've only fed the plants once with Flawless Finish . What would happen if i resumed feeding with nutrients until its the right time ? Please help !!!

All 3 answers above are spot on dude. IMO - run light feeding and don’t stress the flush time too much - strictly speaking the plants roots will only take in the nutrients it needs and once you’re good to chop the only real advantage (again, IMO as this is a somewhat contentious issue) to the flush is sucking chloro outta the leaves, arguably making for a smoother smoke (also achieved with proper curing).:+1::wink:. Good luck to the finish.:facepunch:

i have ended grows with no flush at all and due to slow drying. 10 days , no trimming or chopping at all until she has exhausted every last drop of usable goodness for her final attempt at bud survival . The bid was not harsh or unburnable. debate for me is why stop her feeding on nutes during her most active flowering time. Nature doesnt flush ! . dont panic

Hey so I see you last week you were going with the advanced nutrient Bud candy B52 at cetera, and I'm not knocking advanced nutrients at all so please don't think I'm a hippie weirdo. But seeing how close you are to finishing it might be a good idea to go with a more organic version of those. And essentially all they are is sugar, and vitamins like fulvic acid humic acids amino acids etc. It might be a good idea to just go with some regular molasses from the grocery store (which is in some of the advanced products) because its easier to flush out than the synthetic bottled products. By using that you won't be starving the plants but you won't be over doing it when you see "oh wow these babies are good to go!" You'll be able to do your plain water and flawless a few times and there won't be a tremendous amount of buildup that needs knocking down.
Good job with the grow, very good if this is your 1st time.:v::clap::clap:

Hey there Valhallas, so I've been trying to find the actual ingredients of flawless finish but I can't find them. If I remember correctly it's got two things inside 98% is water and 2% is hydrochloric acid which is the flushing / chelation agent. Basically if you use too much of it it will dissolve your roots , but if you use it only once it basically will act like an amino acid boost chelating the existing nutrients in the soil and giving the plant a healthy dose of chelated nutrients. Thing is though, it won't keep acting nice like amino acids might, it will kinda eliminate nutrients in the soil. If you feed again you'll need (want to?) Add another chelation agent because the hydrochloric acid will have kinda killed off all that helpful life in the soil. So is it safe to feed again? Yeah. Next time maybe avoid these synthetic agents because "mistakes" are harder to recover from and you can reuse the soil. Hope this helps brother ! :rocket:

flushing is overrated. As long as you don't over feed there should be no need to flush. Just feed lightly and you will be fine.
