Have all the plants had the same growing regimen? Did the skunk have a flowering stretch? How frequently are you watering?

Just one per pot,each plant has about 20 little flowers,and lots of wide green leaves..
The only thing I can think of is that the Skunk may have more sativa than the others and as a result may be taking a little longer to flower. If you are growing all the plants under the same regimen, I think you will be ok. Just exercise a little patience and see how things go.

I think watering daily may be overdoing it. Does your medium dry out between waterings?

Re flushing...
It is advised that you stop using your cannabis flowering fertilizer 2 weeks before harvest time to ensure that all chemicals are out of the plant. If chemicals are in the plant when you harvest, the smoke will be very harsh. To prevent harshness, flush the plants heavily with fresh water 2 weeks prior to harvesting them. Ensure you flush at least 3 times the capacity of your pot. So a 4 gallon pot would be flushed with 16 gallons of fresh water. From that point water your plants with pure water, absolutely NO additives should be given to the plant. This is especially important if you have been using chemical fertilizers

Don't flush if you used soil and added no extra ferts. Water only when the soil is dry down to 4 or 5 inches. Try not to saturate. Please do not hijack threads in future.

I agree with Smokin.Moose. If the plants started flowering at 3 weeks they are probably very Sativa dom. in which case they will take longer to finish flowering. Give them 10-12 weeks before harvest.
