Flush (is it time yet)?

I have four plants that have been growing like gang busters since March 6th. Actually...yesterday marked the end of week 9. X3 Blueberry auto plants, X1 Northern Lights. NL plant seems to be a little bit behind the other three BBA plants. Please take a look at the pictures below (the microscope pics are from one of my blueberry autos). Any thoughts are comments welcome thank you!Image_2020-05-14 10_31_51_457.JPGImage_2020-05-14 10_32_05_631.JPGImage_2020-05-14 10_31_27_653.JPGImage_2020-05-14 10_31_51_457.JPGImage_2020-05-14 10_32_05_631.JPGImage_2020-05-14 10_31_27_653.JPGIMG_20200514_110526.jpgIMG_20200514_110532.jpgIMG_20200514_110544.jpgIMG_20200514_110557.jpg
 
Seems the gentleman writing this article wasn't really able to find much of a benefit by flushing and or by not flushing (or) just using tap water with no nutrients. I see the two main factors he used to judge were quality of THC and or concentration of nutrients found on a microscopic level within the bud. However... What about the taste? If it is not known whether or not flushing works to reduce the nutrient level can anybody comment on their personal experience flushing with regards to how their Bud tastes? or is the essence of this article to suggest that proper curing can take the place a flushing with no nutrients the last two weeks of growth cycle?

I'd be more concerned with getting all that lint and fuzz off the buds than anything else. And you're still weeks away from harvest. Get some tweezers and pick that stuff off before it gets all buried in the buds.

I think the majority on here don't flush and most of us have flushed for plenty of time to do our own tests.

So yeah my weed doesn't taste any different either way. The worst thing for ruining taste is drying too fast IMO.

Flushing is a myth.
Yawn. Another monkey brain!
I did a test once. With organics. Vaporized bud from 2 plants, one faded, one dark green. Couldn't tell a difference vaping it, like you could with hydro (smells and tastes like specific plastics depending on brand of nutes).

Put the ABV in a pipe and combusted it. God damn was there a difference. Both gross of course but one made the house smell unbearable, like a wet ash tray shoved up a dead elephants asshole. Guess which one?



Everybody send me your best herb I'll tell you if you flush, and if you don't I'll tell you what brand of nutes you use. Pm for mailing address
 
Wow... You're absolutely right about the pipe cleaners I used to LST. As soon as you said that it fucking hit me... I'm a fucking idiot for using these. But they were so fucking easy to use! Anyway... Total rookie mistake on my part. Definitely good looking out on yours... Thank you!


I pulled all that shit off just like you said!IMG_20200514_141543.jpg
