Can i drown my plant by attempting to flush her in 1 shot?


#1

A customer has a question and I hope we can get some opinions on it, thanks

I accidently nutrient burned my plant 3 1/2 weeks ago. I very sure I flushed her soil but it took like 2 weeks. My question would be: can i drown my plant by attempting to flush her in 1 shot?

It works better, and it’s less harmful to your good microbes, to let it soak for a bit, maybe 20-30 minutes at least in between “douses” to help dissolve salts. Soak them good, let them sit, then soak them again, removing the runoff as you go. Use some yucca extract or molasses to help.

Yeah, that is a decent answer but, at some point you need to allow medium to dry out a bit.

You could flush a high % of slats in one big flush. 3 times the capacity of the pots, but, then you need to allow them to dry out, and if necessary, repeat the process.

That’s a pretty big omission of information on my part. Thanks @latewood ! :+1:
