The most valid anecdotal statement so far was about stopping nutes to reduce workload on the plant from converting chemical nutes at the roots into drawing on leaves which is easier for the plant therefore letting her focus more on calyx stacking and trichrome production.If you feed the plant what it needs exactly, then yes there is no need to flush. But with all the crap that people try to push onto us at stores these days (chems) yes there is a need to flush.. That being said, I am also done with this thread.
But ScienceGrow, you don't have either- last I checked your plants looked burnt to a crisp, and you're talking to people who have both, so why come on so strong? What is going to get you growing some nice plants? Experience? You might have some valid points but nobody will listen when someone is so argumentative. It defeats the purpose. It's all backwards and sounds exactly like a mirror of what you claim to be preaching against. Only reason I was hanging around this thread was to learn something new and so far it is just a bunch of silly arguing. Let's get on with the scienceexperience is no substitute for actual knowledge
6" Hugo blocks. Using 6-9 per light on average depending on veg time.What medium are you growing in, James? And I'd think you must need to have a very consistent technique and timing for measuring the runoff- given that the water you are adding to the pot to cause the runoff is obviously going to affect the ppm. (?)
Catnip !!Correct me if I'm wrong as I've done no research into this subject, but wouldn't one major difference between Tobacco and Cannabis farming be that for Tobacco they are harvesting leaves, and with Cannabis we're harvesting unfertilized flowers?
I can't think of another crop that is similar to Cannabis. I can think of many leaf, fruit and vegetable crops but no other unfertilized flower crops.
Is there any analog we can look to?
