I would def consider flushing for 2 weeks if it was me. With bottled nutes you get a lot of salt build up from synthetic nutes. I did an experiment with just soil and bottled nutes, and just “did a grow” with it with a plant and when I get the soil out of the pots it was just soil white and crystallized to the point it didn’t look like soil. I used GH trio. I’ve also seen this in a buddy’s grow where the smart pots on the outside were solid white on black pots and he was using “organic” bottled nutes. It wasn’t fit to smoke in my eyes. I read somewhere that when you start flushing break a tip of the leaf off and just taste the juice in the leaf if it taste bitter and nasty needs more flushing. I know the GH says to flush after every third feeding. Personally I would take the 2 weeks to flush what ever you decide good luck with your harvest and happy growing!

Depends on how much nutes you use. If you feed on the low side you can get away with only 1 week of flushing.
