    Default Is marijuana flushing necessary?

    Marijuana flushing is the process of rinsing your plants and grow media of excess nutrients and salts. To flush your marijuana plants simply use plain water on your plants for a minimum of 1 week, but we would generally recommend flushing for 2 weeks. The extra week of flushing can sometimes mean the difference between good tasting marijuana and great tasting marijuana. After flushing your plants for a week there is a danger of losing bud weight, and this danger increases when flushing for 2 weeks. I feel unless you're using 100% organics, you need to flush. if you want your ash to turn white and be super smooth, you have to flush. If you don't flush your marijuana then you will miss great taste, good potency, curing and ash color to name a few.

    According to you, Is marijuana flushing necessary? I would love to get your valuable opinions on this...

    yes-
    basicly it is all stated in the article -
    its not an opinion- its a fact-

    to smoke chemicals and heavy metals? or not to smoke?
    its a no brainer-

    What about adding that MOAB (mother of all bloom) to it in the last week? Its an odorless, colorless powder so it shouldnt add any taste to the bud. As far as I know it only increases the potassium and phosphorous levels of ur plant. It isn't organic but all it is is a nutrient supplement/energizer.

    snap crackle pop when you smoke it-
    black ash when it burns,etc .... and it will effect the taste- all because you cant smell it has nothing to do with how nutrients work-

    While I agree with the most of the thoughts and anecdotal evidence presented on big buds site, I can't help but feel every article is designed to directly or indirectly sell something from Advanced Nutrient or their affiliates...

    I guess I appreciate the content and discussion it can spark, I just can't shake the feeling that there are ulterior motives somewhere.

    Also, is this a grow journal?

    maybe if you wanna see how much of a difference it makes you should test it out for yourself, grow 2 plants the same and dont flush one. you will see how BIG a difference flushing makes.

    def take the time to flush, at least one week, more if you can but check your runoff to get a better idea

    what do you guys think about using something like final phase to flush with.... it's intended to give you the best flush possible and is able to do stuff that just plain water can't.... or so they say lol

    I think Final Phase or Clearex just leaches salts out more efficiently than plain water. Have i run tests, nope... I use clearex in a flush if i think there is too much salt buildup.. A gallon of water with final phase will flush more salts than a gallon of plain water, thus conserving water and saving the whales...

    Ok just so people know because i rarely see any one note this...

    Clearex and Final phase are just isotonic solutions. They bind with the excess nutrient sodium and help leache sodium from the medium, but more importantly, the roots, the fine hairs on roots have a electo bond in a sense. Its useing physics to help leach excess sodium that is left over after uptake away. Its best used for when you have a lock out after you dose to MUCH nutrients into your feeding program. This only matters when you use synthetically bonded minerals. your MACRO nutrients, NPK. if the root hairs collect to much soldium they will burn because its "drys" them out, even is there "wet" ~_~ . These techniques were developed because people would over dose and they needed a way to flush salts from there medium asap.

    People do use it during flush but usually it makes little difference, most people would not see anything different compared to just using water. Water itself is a very good solvent. But the companies realized that it worked well for flush so the market it as a "flushing agent". becuase it makes mo money !_!

    Durring flush its important to add water, enzymes and your aroma enhancers like molasses and sugar cane based products. So heres the trick...Clearex and Final flush are not only charged isotinic solutions, but they contain enzymes and sweetening agents, and like they say "natural" ones. ~_~

    So i use Canna, when i flush i add the enzyme and Boost (molasses and sugar cane w/ nettle) all organic and no Macro Nutrients/chemically bonded mineral (or sodium bonded) during my final flush. I don't worry because water is a clean solvent itself.


    Ill go over this in my harvest vid lol =P but i hope it makes sense

    Yeah, I joined the Empire and they did this to me. They gave me this condition. I comply with their rules and still they publicly deny me treatment forcing me to turn away from their ideals, their teachings!

    They made me question what i had been told, now i can live free helping others question the Empire too

    Thank you for that info, i have not had a chance to conduct research on these flushing agents so that's for that, it explains a lot.
    i have a bottle of final phase at the house that i have yet to use, the local shop just gave it to me a few months ago and said that if i wanted i could try it and see if there was any noticeable difference. i use canna's line of nutes also but at the moment i don't have any boost.
    so the final phase has sweetening agents already in it??? that's good to know.

    That's what I do, works great. found out one time what weed smokes like if you don't flush. Harsh, bitter nasty taste, it all went to oil which was ok, but never again. I like to flush a minimum of two weeks in soil, one week minimum in hydro (DWC, swap out the bucket every other day for a week)
