Lets put it to rest with this, If you want to be like longhairbri stay low on nutes, and keep your res/medium clean and you can not flush, according to him, I have NO experience not flushing. If you follow a feeding schedule from a nute supplier, you MUST flush, they want you to buy their products so they have ever additive under the sun in those feeding schedules and if you don't flush that your meds will burn to a nasty black ash and you WILL taste the ferts no questions asked. Everyone is going to tell you something different, whoever said they were going to try next run no flush after he ran a full flushed run has the right idea. Try both and see what works for you youre never going to find the "right" answer
I'll agree with that. if you're following the chart, from the person trying to sell you something, YOU MUST FLUSH! hopefully you haven't damaged the circulatory system too bad to work.
on another note, in nature where's the flush? ain't one! if your trying to replicate nature your not cramming everything into your plants hoping what it needs is there, then trying to wash out everything it didn't. in a natrual system EVERYTHING is already there, in light amounts, as long as the roots are airated, the plant gets what it wants, when it wants.
how do I know that mine is a natral system? easy. once a week I fill my 3x55gal. res and nute to 1000ppm. my system holds 30gal. when not flooded. the ppm in system always tests to around 850+ at res fill up time. meaning my plants use water at about the same rate as nutes. balanced. natrual. I don't test for ph. I don't filter my water (DWS) I fill up once a week and forget about it!! $60 worth of DynaBloom and D/G MagPro lasts me at least 1 full cycle. same recipe in grow as bloom.
my yields and my quality can speak for themselves
if your having ph or nute swing problems your doing something wrong!! Quit listening to the guy at the growshop or a nutriet company.
THERE'S TRYING TO SELL YOU SOMETHING YOU DON'T NEED!!!!!!
