Flushing Plants Before Harvest Is Unnecessary says Rx Green Tech

Yeah that’s my point if you want a one or 2 part just buy it. Tried it and Lucas not for me. Happy growing. Peace.
still clueless i see. and you've been this way since i was a baby too???? lmao
Lucas is not about how many bottles you use.
it's an NPKMg ratio that is able to be used from start to finish.

and you are right. GH doesn't make A 1 part nute. they make 4. floranova bloom, floranova grow, maxigro and maxibloom.

you're welcome.

As I noted that was a typo on my part in regards to GH making a 1 part and I’ve made many a references to maxibloom (and maxigrow) on this site. But yes, thanks for pointing out GHs other 1 part albeit dry.
If the goal is a single ratio as you state what is your view onJacks 3-2-1? Seems more of a following for that method.
But perhaps we should ttake it back to the thread, which I believe was flushing before harvest.

i use jack's RO 12-4-16 from start to finish. i don't believe you need a veg nute, a transition nute, a bloom nute and a finish nute like many others. just like i don't think you need a PK booster.
They didn’t sell bloom boosters and all that snake oil when I got into growing and my yield/quality was great.

The line I ran for rockwool was Europonic and they did have different ratios for veg and flower. I attempted to mention, but never finished the thought really, that due to circumstances (going to grow store not trivial) I used the bloom (2 part-A&B) in veg. It worked so well I never bought the grow A&B after that.

So while I am still experimenting with the efficacy of increased P/K myself I think not using it may be some good advice. I’d recommend fulvic and kelp over P/K boosters.

But back to flushing. As I stated that too was never a thing a while back. I don’t go out of my to flush. About a week before harvest I don’t bother mixing up new nutes so if the reservoir is low I top it off w water. And if fir some reason I need or decide to chop a little early I don’t worry about if they were flushed or not.

Imagine going to the grow store and this was it for inorganic fertilizers to choose from lol.

And for some reason the plants came out just the same as they do today.

With regards to flushing: it only works if the moon is correctly aligned, and Cypress Hill are playing in the background, but not too loud. Also, the electricity for the grow light needs to be CO2-enriched, very bad for climate but it gives you better buds so fuck the climate.

My family traveled from Oklahoma back in the 70s to California bought an old run-down Winery (Far Niente) restored it and created an empire in Oakville California. They now own Far Niente, Nickel and Nickel, Dolce, EnRoute, Bella Union and Element 28 Wineries. They utilize biodynamic farming which is completely reliant on soil health.
Hey congrats on owning property now worth hundreds of millions. However, it's ironic that you're bringing up their Biodynamic processes because Biodynamic is Grade A Bullshit on the same order as flushing. Rudolph Steiner made it up, similar to how stoners sitting around thought "OMG I'm smoking nutes!!!"

That's one of the reasons why the scientific method is so effective, because it can remove the intense bias that can come from major success.

Biodynamic is AAAA bullshit. A bullshit quad.

They bury horns filled with poop in the ground and literally dance for the plants. Bat shit crazy.

I don't buy any products if "biodynamic" is mentioned, even though it's probably good organic quality. It's also way overpriced.

Organic is bullshit too, just slightly less obviously bullshit than Biodynamic.
Now you have to qualify what you mean by "bullshit". I would agree that organically grown produce is not healthier or of higher quality than artificially fertilized one.

But you also have to consider how the mineral fertilizer is made. There is a negative impact on the environment there, that can possibly be avoided. And then, what @PizzaBob said.

Also, for me "bullshit" means that it's straight up nonsense that doesn't work. Like drinking crystal water and hoping it will cure your pancreatic cancer.

Growing organically quite obviously works really well, so it's not bullshit. They do fertilize with bullshit, that's true.

Unjustified attribution of improved Cannabis quality and taste with organic growing is rampant.

I wasn't even talking about Cannabis in particular.

With regards to "organic" vs "non-organic" (artificial?), all that needs to happen is a blind test, or controlled experiment. Feed both ways, then have "connoisseurs" compare without knowing in advance what they're smoking.

Of course, these things are rarely done. Most growers much prefer to stick to their myths, and not have their world view shattered.

It's the same in the "audiophile" scene. Or in the wine tasting community.

However, you said "organic is bullshit". That's a far-ranging statement, and it will make people doubt your capacity for critical thinking.

After all my flushing I then get some deficiencies. But I am getting run off in the 6.0 range now. Was using pH8 or so water with K. Now 7.0 with whatever a pinch of nutes.

I have some in Veg now too and one plant started to show some nute burn. FFHF and I have been giving it some Mg and limestone. It's sister plant of another mother is doing fine. <but it is in FFOF.
