I am in the process of flushing my soil right now. 2 weeks of just Overdrive, 1 week/3x Flawless finish and 1 week/3-4x pure water on an already deficient plant should be good. On another plant i only used Flawless finish one time as a soil drench and then 3 weeks of just water. Very smooth amd tasty smoke even when quickdried in the oven...Hopefully the extended flushing on the last plant is resulting in an even better taste.
Hey Fertilizer , I used Pro mix and Coco in the first two journals and water culture in the current journal , Remo nutrients sterile rdwc.
Where much confusion comes from is with people mixing up the mid grow soil flush with the end of flower plant flush.
So for simplicity sake , people flush the soil in grow mode to clear excess nutrients from the soil itself and flush the plant toward the end of its life / flower mode to clarify the plant material of any excess nutrients.
Continuation of flush results in rdwc
Flavor test using a Arizer Air vaporizer
Day 8 ~ tasted flushed out and flavorful
Day 13 ~ similar to Day 8 with a bit more flavor
Still smoking on Day 13 bud will know about the full flush with cure in about two weeks , the plants have been Cut down , trimmed and hung up to dry in the tent.
Flush duration 15 days in dwc and both Coco's stayed fairly green but did pale , the Bubblegums showed more yellowing with the larger one the most.
The reason they stayed green was because both the Indica and sativa plants shared the same nutrient tank , with the Sativa's being fed the Indica's somewhat stronger diet.
That combined with getting a late start on the flush with the Sativa's being the more mature of the two.
When the flush is started too late the plants will not have the need or time to consume *all* of its stored nitrogen and will stay green.
Its all in the timing
With that said the 15 day flushed green Coco taste real clean even before the cure.

Did you know "scrog" nets are actually called trellis nets?
We gotta stop making up words.

You will bend your understanding not vice versa silly bean !
I'm bent and so shall you be lol
Did you say trellis netting ? ( I call it that as well )
It makes for a great instant drying station

Wait, wait, wait. I'm on my first grow and I'm reading about flushing. What I don't understand is that if you give the plant no nutrients, why it would use up more nutrients it already has when you're not giving it as much. What about something completely organic? What if you just didn't use any nutrients at all? I know the plant itself can withstand more nutrients than most plants, however it will still grow. It's not like the most delicate plant in the world. Just because you grew with just a high quality water alone, doesn't mean that it will show signs of nutrient deficiency for every element. I think the majority factors are environment (temperature, wind, media, humidity, light, and air quality), water quality (ph, ppm, and whatever trace metals from tap water) and training techniques.
Second, just because your ppm is a couple hundred at the roots, in no way shape or form means the same for the plant itself. 100 ppm at the roots can equal to 10,000 ppm in the plant. If you feed the plant for 87.5% of it's life to gain 10,000 ppm, how would feeding it only water for the last 12.5% of it's life significantly decrease this number? If the ppm at the roots suddenly changes to zero, doesn't necessarily mean the same for the plant. At the most, you would lose a couple hundred ppm in the plant, which won't all be in the buds. However, you say that if you flush, the ppm in the plant will drop, but the bud will gain a higher ppm, even though the concept is that the lower ppm concentration is what clears out the "chemical taste" or harshness causing a better quality smoke.
Lastly, flushing has been said to trade quantity for quality. If this is so, why would the bud swell if you flushed, unless you extended the flowering period or does it swell regardless? And if it does, I can guarantee that swell would be bigger if you didn't flush. All this being said, if we didn't pump our medicine with a bunch of chemicals and bi-products like canned foods and such, or at least if more natural or organic ways were used, wouldn't that eliminate this problem completely?
