Sorry... I'm just being a pain in the ass. I don't mean any disrespect.
The last few weeks are most important imo. The plant knows its close to the end, and it's going to focus all its resources into the buds. No food = no resources to be focused.Seriously your plants spend the last few weeks of their lives packing on the weight and really not until then. People flushing are cheating the plants and thus themselves.
I didn't flush but I stopped thinking about putting nutrients in those pots a couple weeks out. I think they got what they needed and I got some autumn colors...I'll admit... I've done it. Lol.... I learned tho.
So just cut off nutes and give them plain water for the last to weeks, right? Or do growers usually feed them up until they are done?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't there still be nutritional value to the soil at the time of harvest outdoors? I mean, i know the cold locks out P, so that explains color change, but outside of that, aren't other nutrients still available?I’ve done side by side twice. I’ve let others be the judge. Not a single person could actually tell and they admitted it “except I was thinking that first one”. BS. White ash is a sign of a good dry and no unwanted retained moisture. Black ash is because it is not dry even if you can keep a fatty going passing it around. Green grass fires smolder forever.
So do you cut off nutes a few weeks out and give them plain water or do you continue to feed them up until they are ready for harvest?Flushing is the worse thing you could ever do to a plant because if it cannot find the nutrients it needs in the root zone it has to start moving stored up energy in older growth, and anytime it has to do that, bud development slows way down.
Yes... I would assume... but if your feeding them out doors in the ground they have a lot more nutes than if you were depleting the soil.Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't there still be nutritional value to the soil at the time of harvest outdoors?

Nah, I mean naturally. Like in the actual ground, not a fabric pot with soil, but actual ground dirt. No added feed, just what nature provides. I can't imagine to much microbial activity goes on, in frozen dirt. So springtime comes, there has to be nutritional value already in the ground.Yes...
