Harvest ? Time between feeding and chop to dry

What is the recommended time between your last feeding, “water with Nutes” and when you actually chop down to dry ? Certain days or certain amount of water ? Example say I look at plants today and I see a lot of amber tricomes, O No, do I need to wait 2 weeks from today, to actually chop down. And only feed plain water for those 2 weeks. Or what would be my options? Thanks

There’s no need to wait if the trichomes are to your liking. Go ahead and harvest, as the trichs will only continue to add more amber for the additional 2 weeks.

I stop feeding my plants and go water only a week or 2 before harvest. Some do a one-and-done flush instead, and others may not flush at all. It’s really up to you and what you are comfortable with.

I’d say if you think the trichs are ready and you want to do a flush, then give them a good flush with several gallons of water and then harvest after a couple of days. Using a flushing agent such as FF Sledgehammer can help with a more effective flush. If using Sledgehammer, add about 3 - 4 ml per gallon to RO or distilled water (no need to pH it,) flush with a couple gallons of the mix, and then follow that with a few gallons of plain water to rinse the Sledgehammer out of the soil.

Agree. No need to flush. Many folks have studied this, and the general consensus (I have found) is that flushing doesn’t really make much difference. So I do it for the last 10-14 days, just cause nutes cost money.

So no Nutes last 10-14 days right ? What if I want to chop tomorrow and fed nutes last Saturday, all of this is in theory, just like to know my options, thanks

Chop away. The no nutes, is just to save money, since the studies indicate that flushing versus not flushing has little effect either way.
