    Well thats an issue They will be stressed now. The only thing you can use against stressed plants are aminoacids go and buy some and spray them to recover faster. U need plant type aminoacids fertilizer.

    best way to tell when you need flushing is when you see the trichromes turning cloudey/amber color. normal 40-50% of them being amber is time to flush. do it for a week streight and you'll be good

    I think you got a ways to go before needing to flush the flower looks like it isn't nearly as full as it needs to be

    Usually people "flush" to clear the plant of all of its usable nutrients so the flower is free of it

    Just lots of water id say 1-2 weeks before harvest. Unless you got those time release nutes or miracle gro, then you're kinda fighting against it you feel?

    here is a update, I started flushing 2 days ago, leaves started showing deficiency which is normal from what I heard, but I don't see tricombs turning amber yet just super cloudy, do you guys think this is too early to flush?

    you mentioned 40-50% amber, I don't see any amber in the tricombes just super cloudy, should I start feeding nutrients again or continue flushing. its been 2 days since I been flushing

    are tricombs the little white prickly small hairs on the bud or the longer hair that's turning amber and surrounds the buds?

    Sorry to bother you, but you been a great help, I've tried youtubing and researching but its so vague and broad the information i'm getting on when is it necessary to flush. what do you think about this now?

    https://imgur.com/a/OIeNEuC

    It's very cloudy but tricombes don't see any amber yet. Real nervous since this is my first batch. Don't want to flush too late or too soon.

    People typically flush on the last week before they harvest the plant. You need a magnifying glass with 30-60x zoom to see the trichromes. The buds definitely look fluffy and are nearing harvest. Another way of telling if harvest is ready is if the fan leaves are dying. All flushing really does is clear the plants/flowers of nutrients and sends it on its way out

    yeah I did buy a magnifying glass with 60x zoom but all I see is cloudiness in the tricombes no amber thus far. Yeah I understand flushing is so you don't get any harsh tasting bud and all the extra nutrients in the bud, I just don't want to starve the plants from nutrients when they aren't ready, and I don't want to flush too late and get harsh tasting buds. But I guess i'll flush them in like 2 days, thank you dave!
