I think the burned bud is healing. More pistils are coming out. Don’t know if it will be a viable bud. We’ll see.
Great question Otto and congratulations on being open to hearing opinions! That can be rare when it comes to flushing .I’m interested to hear folks’ opinions on flushing at the end. I know that there are varying schools of thought on this.
Thanks. I’ve been doing periodic flushes to clean out salt buildup when I have high output EC. Usually any time output EC is .4 higher or more than input. I just run the auto system manually with straight water for a few minutes, vaacum out the ensuing water and go back to the normal nutrient regime.Great question Otto and congratulations on being open to hearing opinions!

One thing to clear up is what you mean by flushing, because it's used to mean two different things. The way it mostly seems to be used is when someone wants to feed plain water for the last x weeks because they've heard that it's the way to make the buds taste better, clear the "nute taste," and get rid of excess nutrients from the flowers before harvest.
That is a physical impossibility based on plant science, and it's explained in the two #noflushclub links in my sig, which are all science, no bro-science.
The other use of the word "flushing" relates to clearing soil or soilless (peat) media of excess salts and unused ions that can build up when feeding any synthetic nutrient, regardless of brand. In that instance, a one-time flushing of plain un-pH'd water through the pot, at a rate of 2-3x the pot volume, will reset the substrate and allow the roots clean access to the nutes they need. It is usually done around 3 weeks from expected harvest, and is immediately followed by full-strength nutes (plain water, then nute water, all in the same session). You would then continue feeding what the plant needs right up until harvest.
One word, two meanings. One complete myth, one complete fact.
I hope that helps!
Here are some better pictures, using a jeweler’s loupe. I’m still seeing mostly clear here. But I’m not sure of my ability to read that. There does appear to be a tiny bit of amber starting too. What do you think?Hard to tell from the pics provided, it’s always so difficult to actually see the trichs through a photo. Remember when checking the trichs, to check the calyx over a sugar leaf. They seem to mature faster on a sugar leaf. Just from the pics provided, I would say week in a half, to two weeks.
Great photos, yes for best results, it’s best to look at the calyx’s not the sugar leaves. I didn’t look at all of the photos, but I’m going off the first photo. I do some amber, but there are still a lot of clear. They’re close, but not close enough! Your looking for more of a couch lock high yeah?Here are some better pictures, using a jeweler’s loupe.
