I have a feeling this question has an answer that and learning it I'll hit my self in the head and yell DOH afterwards. I did a thread search and came up with nothing. I understand the issue of flushing as never before and I come from the 70s school of hort., and as far as my vocab will allow I get "flushing". I just don't understand this, what does "res" mean? as in "Many folks think flushing is about cleaning out the plants. In an indirect way this is true, but its really much more about your soil and roots andres" .. Or, "Step 1 - Drain your res and refill. Add Clearex at about 20-30ml / Gallon. pH balance to 5.7-6.2 depending on whether you're hydro or soil."
I like soil and pots and so res applies to what in that case? I am feeling dumber by the moment so time to post before I chicken out.
When in doubt flush it out. Even before you reach out for help. Also get yourself some SLF-100. It helps with breaking down salt deposits which form on the roots creating a lock out situation.onewarmguy; [IMG said:
Thanks Renegade I ran about 8 or 9 gallons of distilled water Ph'd to 6.5, through her today just before lights on. I'm just starting to see some trichomes forming and I'd hate to loose her now. Any chance that some of the sugar leaves will recover?When in doubt flush it out. Even before you reach out for help. Also get yourself some SLF-100.
