    Default Should I Flush a organic Soil Grow??

    Hi Guys!

    Just coming to the end now of my soil grow, Ive been using the oldtimers nutrient range, including their organic additives and i've also fed blackstrap molasses along side. The soil mix contains eco charge and great white mycorrhizal . (Unsure if the latter is relevant)

    So, would it be best to flush before harvest? If so, how long for please?

    I've seen a lot of mixed info in regards to flushing organic soil grows, some saying you should and others saying there is no need. So unsure of what do at the minute.

    Cheers for your time!!

    just give em water for a week or so, until they start to yellow,

    in coco/hydro it's all chemical/salt feeds and they need flushed out,
    in organic they aren't chemical feeds so no real salts to be removed from the medium

    just my 2p

    That would better the taste. But it is not as important as when you grow using mineral feed.

    In soil there’s no need to flush.what you can do is drop any nutes for the last 7-10 days and just give plain water 😊

    I stop giving them anything for the last 5-7 days. I see no point in watering them, just to cut them down to dry out.

    Flush or not to flush the debate, run just water for the last 2wks allowing the plant to basically eat up any stored nutes in water leaves etc, she will start fading out the green colour, also when you think she ready for chop pull a fan leaf of and taste the watery stuff if taste clean you are good to go

    There is really no need to flush, if you are using Trace Minerals. I have flush and not flush, and there was no difference in taste, way the weed burn, they were both smooth.
