What is Flushing?
Cannabis plant flushing is the process of removing all the residual nutrients from the plant before harvest. You can do this by watering the plant with plain water for some time. This is typically done every two weeks.
This will leach out all the nutrients absorbed by the plant, leaving it with just water. Some growers will also add a few nutrients to the water to help speed up the process.
When to Flush Your Cannabis Plants
When to flush cannabis plants depends on a few things. If you are growing in soil, you will want to flush your plants 2 weeks before harvest. If you are growing in coco coir or another type of soilless medium, you will want to flush your plants 1 week before harvest.
