I’d love to see more studies. Unfortunately a nutrient company running a study that tells me to use more nutrients doesn’t give me the greatest confidence in their findings. They concluded that “The results of this trial indicate that there is no benefit to flushing Cannabis flower for improved taste or consumer experience.”
If I run a 10 week flower cycle and run pure water as a flush for 14 days I am saving 20% on bloom nutrients, compared to running a 0 day flush. That’s a huge savings, especially at scale. Saving 20% on non-labour inputs, and ending up with a statistically identical end product, is huge.
I would have thought the observed properties of 0 day flush would be much greater than the 14 day flush. In my mind it’s like starving a heavyweight fighter at the end of their training, just before the big fight. I figured good nutrition right up until the end would give the 0 day flush plants an edge.
Thanks for sharing. I hope there are more studies like this that others will publish.
