I am currently at 10 weeks from my light flip, probably 8 since the first pistils.
I had to go away for the past 2 weeks so I gave her what I thought was the last feeding and left instructions to water every 3 days. This was intended to be my final 2 week flush.
Just got home, the buds are big,juicy and extra frosty! Trichomes are all cloudy and maybe 2-5% amber. Pistils are probably 90% white 10% orange. All of the fan leaves are dead and dried out. While plucking a few that didnt fall off on their own my fingers are glued together!
I am thinking I need to give her another week or 2 but shes def depleted all the nutes available.
So what do I do? Feed her again once more and then start another 1-2 week flush? Just let her finish another week on straight water? Or something totally different?
Yea these plants stop growing and then the BUD trichs turn amber, as they use up the soil nutes, and begin to degrade the cannebinoids. I’m at Wk 6.5 Flowering and seeing some amber on the leaves but I know there’s a few weeks to go and they are growing shoulders so I’ll give them as much as they can handle of feed and numerals they need. Patience wins!
Flushing trial that says it makes no difference if you flush conducted and presented by a nutrient company. Not like they benefit from people using an extra 2 weeks of nutes or anything. Its not science its sales.
Flushing at the end of a grow has nothing to do with washing nutes out so of course this is how the figures would come out. You cant wash nutes out of a plant. The final flush is about breaking down chlorophyll and using stored nutes from leaves They show you in the breakdown.
The cure breaks down chlorophyll also. Bet you can find a bunch of cannabis company backed studies that say curing doesnt effect anything also. They wouldnt be the first and wont be the last company to lie to consumers.
