Flush in practice
In practice, flush is nothing more than washing plants with water. Yes, that’s right: it is the current application of water to the soil or nutrient where the plant is being grown, in order to clean it up and make it absorb only water at this time the procedure is being done. In short, the Cannabis Flush is that.
When to do and when not to flush
As we mentioned earlier, there are different cases where Flush is recommended, but there are also occasions when this technique is not welcome and may end up more disturbing than helping a crop, so it’s good to know when to apply it.
This is the time when flush is most often used by growers, and also when it is most missed when not applied. It is practically unanimous among the growers that Flush helps and much in the buds taste when it is done before harvesting. Because of this, it has become practically indispensable.
Flushing on this period, the grower ensures that the plant will use all of its nutrient and fertilizer reserves in bud production while any flavor of these elements will also disappear.
- Nutrient blocking or exchange
Cleaning plants can also be essential to prevent them from blocking nutrients, meaning they cannot access these elements in the soil because of excess or accumulation. The water applied through the flush will clear this and make the plant feed again.
In addition, when nutrients are exchanged Flush can be used to clean the old one before applying a new one.
• Flush will only be necessary on the occasions mentioned above. After all, they already receive water through the cultivator’s watering and therefore cleaning will not be necessary.
• In crops on organic soil, flush can be harmful by cleaning up these natural nutrients.
Cannabis flush is really a simple procedure, but as you can see it can be very important. So when it’s time to do it is nice to pay attention to some details that will ensure that it is really efficient for your girls.
When pre-harvesting the flush, the grower has to make sure it is the right time to do so, because flushing too early can be harmful.
Checking the pH level of the water well to ensure that it is truly pure and clean is also critical. To see if the flush worked and if the soil nutrients were clean, just check how the water that flowed from the pot through the plant came out. This can be done through a TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) reader.
