You're right to each is own. Im also a huge believer/lover of science and the science does say. ( the article is around here somewhere) feeding your plant right up to harvest has ZERO effect on the buds. Doesnt affect taste, smoke, anything. It's simply one of those things ppl do that caught on as a must do. It's really super interesting study. I feed my monsters right up until harvest after I read it and literally no differenceI think your so wrong but your entiled to your opinion flushing is needed if your not growing organic.
