Wait a few weeks. I see way too many clear trichomes and no real cloudy trichs. And I don’t flush at all. But I think those plants still have a ways to go.

The point of flushing is to help get rid of the salt build up in the soil and in the roots.

I usually don’t flush but my next crop I will since I will be able to use the whole nutrient line from Fox Farms.

Nice…im only a few weeks into my first grow and will soon start using jacks 321 nutes for feeding…i planned on flushing towards the end but mostly just cuz that’s what i’ve read to do.

And

I stopped flushing after last batch. Won’t be making that time consuming and ridiculously sloppy mistake again. Focus on a slow cure and screw the flush.

For sure. Slow the dry down and be patient with the cure and reap the tastiness and IMO a bit more oomph. Lol.

I’m just gonna post this here. I flush but I dont put a big emphasis on it. My focus now is some hrs up until 48 or darkness to get things down into the roots vs the flowers before harvest and even then I’m not that picky if they at least get 12 hrs.

@Fergus @OlyBoy98503 ok cheers for the help guys :+1:t2:
Is there a reason to why you guys don’t flush ? Won’t your smoke be harsh or do you just cure for longer?

I have flushed and not flushed, and I honestly could not tell the difference after drying and curing. Additionally, I could not find any documented studies that showed a difference in the terpene profile. As a matter fact, all of the studies that I was able to find showed that there was no difference. So I just haven’t done it.

Exactly @OlyBoy98503
If I thought it made a positive difference Id be all over it. I dont use alot of nutes either and water only in between, so theoretically wouldnt be much build up. I also have never measured run off etc and never had an issue but its early days yet (only 4 grows deep) and I wont get cocky as we should only count whats in our jars. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Yep. I’ve been looking at it all a bit differently. I’ve had some flushed buds that were trash which confused me. Now I def do some darkness and dry hang n trimming. Yes my wet trimmed buds always look better but lately dry hang and trim is giving much smoother smoke and that’s what really matters.
