Looking for a bit of advice on flushing before harvest as this is the first time I’ve grown in coco coir/perlite mix.
My plants today have just hit week 12 (Day 84) since planting seeds, and probably around week 7 into flower. They grew way bigger than my previous soil grow and outgrew my grow tent. I had to cut the bottom out of my tent and raise it to keep up with their growth.
I’ve read for coco coir I only need to flush for around a week to 10 days but don’t want to start too soon before they’re ready, if you can help me get it right id really appreciate it.
2 plants both Jack herer auto‘s from ILGM Indoor grow (plants outgrew my tent so they’re squished together see pics)
5 gallon fabric pots
400W LED light on 24hrs
Coco coir perlite mix
One plant (right in image) is larger and feeds every 2 days (5L each watering general hydroponics flora trio Lucas formula around 1000ppm with plain PH water every second watering)
Second plant (left in image) watering every 3 days same amount and ppm as above and with plain ph water every second watering.
PH 5.8-6.0 each watering/feed
Both have almost entirely white pistils, smaller plant on left seems further along with fatter buds/colas, plant on right is a bit more airy but has more brown pistils.
I’ve checked trachomes with my jewelers loupe and both have a mix of clear and cloudy trichromes, plant on left more cloudy than clear and on right about 50/50.
Given this can you give me your best estimate of how long I have left with these 2 and when you would start flushing. Both have immense amounts of foliage so there is plenty of reserve for them to live off once I start flushing.
Looking forward to any help you can give!
