    Default Is flushing finished when leaves get pale?

    Hi folks,



    I have read lots of info regarding when to start flushing, but when do you end flushing? Do the leaves always go pale (as the plant eats itself), or is this strain dependant (I would have thought not)?

    According to the trichs, the plant is ready, so I've put them on a flush a couple days ago, but have not noticed much change in leaf colour. Just wondering if it is me not being patient enough



    Cheers for any info

    well most start flushing when she's on the last weeks of life,
    your plants are 70%-80% ready == flush until she has finished ripening - 7-14 days depending on medium

    Yep, problem is that I did not flush before hand, so they are already ready according to the trichs. Just need to rid the chems (in DWC hydro) and I'm done, but not sure how long to give it just plain water...

    in hydro they fade really quick when flushed,
    should be good in a week or so to chop em

    usually takes 7-14 days

    Are you saying that the plant will be finished flushing when all the leaves go pale? If so, am I right to use the paleness of the leaves as my "how much the plant is currently flushed" measure?

    Reason I'm curious, is that I started flush 2 days ago, but I cannot really afford to wait for 7-14 days for flush (due to time commitments, have to pull tent down soon). Trying to gauge how far off I will be from complete flush if I chop tomorrow. Cheers

    cut em down when you need em down mate
    in hydro there's no food unless you supply it so they yellow faster than soil

    when you switch to just water the plants eat themselves to stay alive,
    how long they last depends on how much they have stored up, remove all the fan leaves - speeds up yellowing


    i've chopped em green and pale yellow, can't say i could tell the difference after a good cure,
    go to youtube and check ''trimming cannabis'' you won't see many completely yellow, nor with most outdoor plants that are harvested



    cut em if ya want or let em fade more

    i agree with u on this. i have chopped sometimes because i had to due to rippers or mold and i can never tell a difference in my plant. all i care about anyways first and foremost is if it gets me fucked up. taste is 2nd for me!
