When should I begin the flushing process for my OG Glueberry Auto? Normally it would be starting 2 weeks prior to harvest. Is that still applicable to Auto strain? Do they need two weeks of flushing, or will one week suffice?

The process is the same for auto and photo, when you are flushing it is to get rid of the excess nutrients of the soil ( to wash them away) and also to make the plant use the last nutrient she has stocked in her system. So the process will require the same amount of time in both cases. Flush your Glueberry auto like you would flush a Glueberry photoperiodic :blush::+1:

Have you ever tried not flushing? There was a recent study that showed there's a 5% or less difference in nute content between flushed and non-flushed buds. You basically only hurt yields a bit by flushing and it doesn't do a whole lot other than that. I have personally tried a flushed vs non-flushed harvest myself and they taste and smoke exactly the same.
