Maybe so... High Times sold out years ago and is as much of an informational resource in my mind as some of these personality driven web operations have become. We here at 420Mag are at the leading edge of the cannabis growing science, and we are developing new insights and methods every time we document a grow with a journal.I'm pretty sure they were studying what "flushing" is considered to be by the Cannabis industry not what you are referencing.
I really don't recognize what the "industry" does as they attempt to mass produce pot to be the be all and end all of the science. These fools are still arguing back and forth as to whether it is possible to flush a plant. I would love to prove that article wrong, and it would be easy to do when they reference there being no difference in quantity or quality in starving the plants for various time periods. I am 100% positive that I could set up a side by side that would totally disprove this ridiculous claim.
Instead of pushing for the best quality, mass producers in the industry instead worry about the costs of water and nutes at the end of the grow. There is a huge difference between what they do and what I do. They are running a business. I am conducting scientific research. Not only that, but I have the influence of 4 generations of growers in my family, 3 that regularly visit my grow rooms. My grandpa is gone now, but Dr. Read in Wales as chief arborist is very well known for his theories in the garden, and guess who trained me as a little girl? I know for a fact that this modern tendency to think that it is a good thing to starve your plants at the end, came in with the industrialization of the emerging cannabis "industry" and I say again that to call this a "flush" is a perversion of age old horticultural technique.
