Yep, I do a 2-3 times the pot size for flushes when it comes to problems with the plants, but lately, all I do is stop feeding nutes at right about 2 weeks from harvest....I'm going to have two plants this go round that wont have nutes for the last three weeks. I go water once, then water with molasses, then back and forth like that for a week, then straight water for the last week or two....

After flushing after plant problems would you renute at a light dose. I think my Royal Haze has at least a month to go.

Hey CF, I would introduce the nutes at about 1/2 strength after flushing for problems. Also, you may want to check your soil PH. It could be on the low side causing that leaf burn, which may be a lack of phosphorous. If your PH is low, add some hydrated lime to the soil. I usually add about 3 tablespoons to a 5 gallon bucket in week 3 or 4 of flower. Just my best guess, hope it helps...

That helps a lot! I will check the soil ph. Hydrated Lime? I am on it!!

I know you can grow some mean plants!! Next grow I am going to go a lot
simpler. My energy levels are not where they used to be because of this medication I am on. I have went from 205 lbs to 160 lbs since Feb. :Namaste::high-five:

Ouch! That sounds like me, I dropped 50 lbs total. I have now gained 10 back :) Lime will raise the PH of the soil. But only add it if your soil PH is low. You can get a digital soil PH meter for around $15. Just water with plain 7.0 water to dampen the soil fairly well then wait about 10 minutes and then test the soil. If it is 6.0 or below I would definitely add the lime. Let me know via PM what you find out if ya don't mind. Peace bro

Hey CF!

I do the hydro thing, but I've had harvests when I was unable to flush, but the buds still had great flavor. Flushing is a bit overrated, imo, but I still do it when I can for optimum flavor and health reasons. What I've noticed, is the trim leaves hold the bad fertilizer tastes it seems like, but the buds don't. A good trim on your buds will help overcome any fertilizer tastes to a great extent in my personal experience and opinion. I'll take a good cure over a flush any day, for flavor.

Sounds like some great ideas from OMM and 4twenty4all.

I've lost a bunch of weight, too, partly due to meds, and partly due to me trying to rehab as much as I can. Don't mind losing the weight, but this weightloss program won't become a fad anytime soon. ;)

I am doing the same thing with wearing clothes I was planning on donating. Stuff I never thought would fit again!

Have a great day and weekend my friend. :high-five:

Thanks Xlr8. There are a few of us on this highly successful, unpopular weight reduction program!!

I miss the hydro. Had better results with less plants. I never had a problem with nute taste either. I agree that the cure is most important.
:high-five:

I really want to learn soil. I really like the versatility of having several plants in different grow stages.

This grow started out as a Blue Planet Nutrient grow. Then I got on this treatment. This grow went crazy. Not in a good way. It took a long time for my body to get used to this powerful treatment. Then it turned into a crazy grow. I really under and over nursed my plants. My plants have been bi polarized!!

The Blue Planet Plants grown organically is the best tasting weed I have ever grown. My only problem is with BPN organic. The nutes smell very strong. I like the BPN line up. I will try the 2 or 3 part. They do a great job and do not have the odor.

I am going to close this journal in the next day or two. I will be starting a new journal using oc+. It is inexpensive and has proven to work. I will only be adding water and cal mag. I have a few bloom boosters that I might use too during flower

For the record. I bought a digital PH meter. The PH in my soil is 7.0. Just wanted to keep a record for my self. Thank you for your concern. I did PM you and you said that was normal range.
My plants did take possitively to the nute flush. Since then I have renuted at half strength. I also added some cal mag to the mixture this time.

Hey CF! :high-five:

You shouldn't say things like this: My plants have been bi polarized!! :circle-of-love:

I almost fell out of my chair! :Rasta:

Glad I could help!! I hope you had a soft landing!!! When I think about that I laugh too!
:laugh2:

I honestly do not know what to do with the Royal Haze. Hopefully it will fill in. Right now I have a lot of buds bud none are filled out. I am going to give this one another month at the most. If not.... I am chopping and making hash out of her.

Here are some pics! Plants are doing better since the flush. The Royal Haze just want to send out pistols. If this plant fills out I will have a lot of nice buds.
The White Ruskis are bouncing back too. The one in the corner can be harvested any time. It is about 50/50 in the with amber trichs.
So small plant though. I know they get much bigger than this.


Here is a group photo....

I am going to end this journal and start a new journal this weekend. I will be adding more plants to the grow room. I will be using oc+ and cal mag once in a while when needed.

This is my next crop....

Tangerine Dream
OG Kush
Sour AK
Purple Haze
Moby Dick
Violator Kush


I have been vegging them using my 2 90 watt UFO lites ...

Looking good CF! :high-five:

Chop that White Russian NOW! She will be out of the zone for cutting when it's perfect in a day or two......just looking out for you, Buddy! :circle-of-love:

Great strains for the next grow! :bravo:

Watch out for the Violator.....she stretches like crazy in flower! :ganjamon:

The chopping has started and I am concluding this journal and starting a new one.

This was a crazy journal. I started using the BPN Organic. Best tasting weed I ever grew. Then I got on this bad medicine from the doctor and went crazy. I plan on buying some 2 part from BPN and doing a small hydro grow.

Thanks everyone for following!

Thank you every one. I will do a smoke report. However not on this journal. I have already asked to have it put in the completed file. Please go to 420 Magazine ®

This journal should have been shut down months ago when I completed the BPN organic grow.

I cant wait to give a smoke report on the White Ruskis and the Royal Haze. :high-five:
