Pistils / Hairs are not the best way to tell when your flushing window is open. You should wait until all of your buds have gone fat & rock-solid, check the trichomes with a magnifier/hand-held microscope, and start flushing when the trichomes are turning from clear to milky. Then, watch carefully everyday and wait for all the trichomes to be milky (some may start becoming amber, you're good to go!). I'll be around, keep us up-to-date and good luck with this beauty!

Your girls are still fattening up, so I wouldn't be flushing as you can still be feeding lightly for another week. As long as you give her a 7-10 Days in some cases 14 days depending on how well you can flush, nothing wrong with going a week extra on nutrients lightly because you will still flush at the end. Then, for the last 2 weeks just give her plain pH'd water. Try to remember if it looks ready, let it go another week.

Patience. Looks like you have quite a bit left still. I think 2, or most likely 3 weeks left. I would not flush, what I would do is to stop feeding and only give water as needed, let the plant consume whatever is left on the soil in the following weeks and in it's foliage.
