I'm at the 8th week (day 50). When do you advise me to stop the nutrients for cleaning ?

I do a flush just before flipping to 12/12 (you're past that though), and a flush two weeks into flowering (as the flowers begin to show, you're just past that). Looking at your plants though, they are not showing any signs of deficiency or excess - hurrah! In the happy state they look in - I don't think you need to flush just now, just switch to Bloom nutes and think about flushing two weeks from when you plan to harvest. By not flushing now you will keep some Grow nutes in the media (Nitrogen) which they will like a bit of during early Bloom which you're in now.

They are a bit stretchy. I put that down just 250w of light in flowering, compared to the 600w you did in veg. They are going to continue to stretch for a bit, so consider some LSTing so you don't run out of space. Another side note is that your solution temperature is too low and will cool down the media and hence stunt growth. Make it ~22-24c going in to not stress her with cold feet! :)

Hi there from the looks of it your plant appears Sativa dominant. This means it could take all the way up to 12 weeks of it being in the 12/12 light cycle before it is ready for harvest. What you are looking for is when the white pistils hairs have turned mostly red and the have all turned mostly cloudy instead of clear or starting to turn Amber in color. This signals its harvest time. You will not need to flush until a week to 10 days before this coloring takes place. When you notice that the white hairs at about 1/2 -2/3 red and the trichomes 1/2-2/3 cloudy this signals that it is time to start leeching or flushing the plant. You still have a ways to go I would say probably 8 more weeks at most. Good luck on your grow!

Hi there! It's a bit soon, your buds have not ended fattening, and nutrients will help to increase bud's quantity and quality. According to SensiSeeds schedule she should already be ready, but breeders always shorten their schedule by 2-3 weeks. So in my opinion you can keep on giving nutrients for 10-15 days, let the buds get bigger and start to flush when new pistils have stopped appearing. Hope this helps, I'll be around, keep us up-to-date and happy growing!

Washing is usually started two weeks before harvest. If the plant has a flowering period of 8 weeks, the wash will begin six weeks after the beginning of the flowering stage. But it is preferable to analyze the trichomes of your plant to try to predict when the plant will be ready. If the tiny trichomes that were translucent start to get darker, it is a good indicator that we can start washing the plant
