ppm of what? the runoff? you growing in bagged soil?

i'd stop what you're doing. idk what running more than 2 gallons of water through a pot is going to do. is it soil? did you add nutrients or something?

do you know the pH of your tap water?

without any details its hard to give advice but i'd stop running water through it for sure

plant looks almost done. just keep on growing and on to the next grow. don't stress.

You really do not have to flush your plant but if you feel the need, two and a half gallons of water should do the trick.

Overwatering isn't about volume, it's about frequency. So if you allow the medium to dry enough between watering you are ok. Water heavy but only when it's dry.

let it get a bit light could tell it was still moist most ppl tell me if its dry down to the first knuckle that thats good nuff

I definitely let the pot get really light, not so much that the plant wilts but definitely dry. If the bottom and inner parts are still saturated then it can cause root rot. Need to let the roots get a little period of lots of oxygen before each watering.

and or always water to achieve at least 20% runoff as this prevents salt buildups. If one just keeps pouring in nutes and never letting anything wash out then salt levels build.
yes this is what i didnt research i should have read bout it

2 questions what is good ppm for week 7 flower? No2. should i feed small doses when ppm is back to normal ?
At week 7 I am still up around 1000 - 1100 PPM @ 0.5 conversion = 2.0 - 2.2 EC. I am not one that subscribes to a weak feed, anytime I have attempted lower PPM feeds I get nutrient deficiencies. It just doesn't work for me.
