      Thanks for the info about that book. Have never seen that one before.  Your soil mix contains similar ingredients to my latest compilation. I keep changing my mind about my current issues. One minute I have been thinking it was a problem with my soil mix - but now I am thinking that my issues are due to over-watering which I have been consistently doing for years.    Now, I am checking my plants every day but not watering them every day.  I have been wondering why the roots on my finished plants have always been so tiny - along with feeble harvests. Now, I have had one of those light bulb  moments thanks to this website, and I can change my strategy. Maybe my plants will start to grow vigorously - in the way they never normally do!

      £3600 are you fucking kidding me? For that money you could buy a top of the line greenhouse and a bucket of seeds and do it yourself, fuck this evil corrupt government.

      After looking into the subject, studying root function and how roots uptake nutrients, and reading the latest research, I am very confident that curing and flushing are exactly the same thing. If flushing has an aim separate from curing, then it fails in that aim because it does nothing separate from curing.   Now that cannabis is legal in some places, some students are choosing to study cannabis for their masters thesis etc which means actual research is coming out that addresses questions I have had in the past and which are of interest to growers in general, for example is there a difference in yield or quality between daily, every other day, or once every three days watering? Or does flushing actually do anything different when compared to the changes that are a result of curing?   Here is the study for anyone interested (PDF Download)     Bolding and italics are mine. And here is the graph of lab analysis of the bud tissue from flushed, unflushed, well irrigated (control), and less irrigated buds (mild and moderate stress).     To use their terminology, there is no significant differences between any treatments analysed using ANOVA (statistical analysis software) at a significance of p<0.05. Basically flushing does nothing at all, do it if you like, don't do it if you like. It matters not. What matters is that you cure your buds, either during the last few weeks of life by restricting nutrients, or after it is cut.   The thing that surprised me was that there was no gain in yield or quality from not flushing. I had suspected that restricting the nutrients to the plant would have reduced yield but this is not the case according to research.   To the best of my knowledge, flushing or not flushing results in exactly the same chemical composition in the buds after curing. This suggests to me that it is the curing which is important, not flushing.   This in turn suggests to me that flushing is in fact curing.
