    ^correct. Flushing removes the build up of salts, and gives you a smoother smoke when you harvest.

    To flush, I water through 1 1/2 times the volume of the pot. This will remove the bulk of any salts that have accumulated.

    Yep, and allow for flow through to remove salts.

    Re: Flushing??

    theres only one small hole in the bottom of each pot so for better flow should I drill a few more?? or u think one will be enough?

    definitely, you can make larger quantities of smaller holes in order to increase efficiency with drainage.
