Ok so I feel like these buds should be thicker by now. I know my harvest is a few weeks away and really want them to pack on some weight. Anybody got some tips?

You could try adding some molasses to your water. I started adding terpinator and its probably just molasses with a fancy name. I used Flower Fuel on my last grow and that seemed to fatten them up nicely but it was my first grow so I can't really compare.

I have a supplement called overdrive that I'm supposed to use for 2 weeks before the final flush, I'm just skeptical because I'm not sure if that will be enough time to get the results I'm looking for. Just pure molasses?

When do you guys flush? I'm thinking about doing it in the next week maybe two. Longer for the big one in the back, at least 2 weeks longer than the rest.

I'm not sure as I've only done it once but I did one week before harvest but I know there are some that do not flush. I think it depends what you're growing in and with what nutrients I'd say 1 week to be on safe side

Seeing as your in hydro balls i don't think a flush is required.
There is nothing to flush.
You would just be washing your roots with plain water imo.
Touchy subject though (flushing)
See if there is any other opinions.

Hi @Rick34

Sorry I'm a bit late to the party!

I grow autos in hydroponics.

A few things:

Autos will start to flower in their own. They start early, and to get them to keep growing you need to continue training (LST). Defoliation should be done carefully, I'm not a big fan of it, it's another touchy subject when it comes to Autos.

Don't flush, unless you just finished in the bathroom.

You've still got some time, they'll pack on weight, leave them be training wise and they'll finish faster.

I've found (and this is my very limited experience), that autos finish quick and small when not trained, but with proper training the flowering time can be extended. Here's a link with good reading (I agree with Multivortex):


I've got the attention span of a gold fish, feel free to PM or tag me anytime and I'll answer best I can, or help you find your answers.

That he does. He's not as active on the forum anymore unfortunately. But read through his grow journals for some great rdwc info. It'll apply the same for you.
Best thing for any kind of dwc or rdwc to help a lot is this chart. Print it and keep it near your grow to refer to.

It's a guide, there are situations where it'll be up to you to decide. But this chart makes life a lot easier.

It's a done deal!! I was definitely nervous about drying. I thought there was no way I could dry it all with the amount of humidity and heat in this area. In fact I still had to throw some away after all my extra effort. Portable A/C unit, dehumidifier, and a fan rigged to the drying box. I walked away with 12 oz. Of some good white widow. I learned a lot on this grow, most of which I won't even get to apply until my next run. I dried it in 11 days trying my best to avoid mold.
