yes you be correct … it’s better to cut back on the feed then just a cut off and starting flush … with cutting back the feed you don’t have to do a 2 week flush , 1 week is good enough ….I did 3 week flushes , 1 week flushes … but if done right you should start to see the fade or fall colors start before the flush ….
OK cool. That answers another question I had. My 1 plant I have is an 8 week strain and it's in week 6 so 2nd week of late flower feeding and I'm already starting to see leaves fade to yellow. If I flushed for week 7 and 8 there'd be no leaves left lol. So I'll probably taper down a week and flush a week.

Alright, everything (like all three articles I found) about charging with liquid fertilizers said to let it sit for 2 days. I left it outside and nearly all the water evaporated. My thinking is evaporate the water out- leaving only fertilizer in the bio char

im Going to let it dry out another day. Next I’ll hit it with something like photo + or a aerated tea.

Looks like you may need some perlite also. Whatever mix I make I usually add more.

This is just straight biochar. I’m going to add it to my soil.
Oh ya duh! Lol. After you mix it all up and do whatever else you're gonna do and let it sit I take a slurry before I transplant just to be safe. I noticed this run with #4 soil amended with oneshot and mixed withe the biochar mix I got i haven't had to battle low ph at all. Right now in flower it's kinda like a nice battle against high ph if that makes sense. It stays on the higher end and when I feed at really high ppms it drifts down to say 6.4 then back up to almost 7.

I was going to try a bottle of Herculean to finish up the last few weeks of this run. Is the Olympus Up really needed? How much does the HH drop the Ph? My well water is about 7.4

Well it kinda depends on the ppms of your water and what those tds' are. You may not need it but truly won't know until you throw 2 TBl of herc into a gal of water and check the pH. The water I use right now comes out of the tap with 150 ppm on a x5 scale and a pH of 7.4. I dilute it down to 100 ppm for every tea feed and flush. So when I add 2 tbl of herc to my water for a flush it comes out with a pH of 6.4. Dead on. That's just me and my water and what I do.
