Hi doesn’t anyone on hear check there ppm when harvesting. I’m growing in peat and coco so it’s like a soil medium.

used advanced nutrients and flawless finish.

here are my results. I’ve already harvested. But was wondering are thease ppm good compared too my water ppm as I tried too get the ppm low as possible thank.

I checked the run off ppm 3 times

and my rap water twice

Sssuperrrr bump bump
It depends on what you were trying to do.. If you were trying to get your run off ppms to be close to your waters ppms, then they are pretty close.. If the nutrient mix was 500 and the run off is 180, then that could mean something entirely different. Just too many scenarios for a straight yes or no answer.

I was just trying too get close too water ppm, thanks bro


Yes I get the scenario of if your feeding 500 etc, and 180 comes out becuse the plants eating it

Just wondering what are you trying to accomplish. I'd say yes it's very close. it's hard to get exact in a medium where particles can end up in your end result. There's plenty that do and dont flush. On here they've "proven" it dont help autos. I still do it. I've tried twice without it and I feel the smoke was harsher. I dont think it matters if you harvest with green leaves..what good is the harvest ppms if you still got green leaves. Roots not feeding or having food doesnt mean plants cant eat from the leaf. I run plain water til most my leaves are used up. This is how I do it and I like it. This is also with megacrop nutrients alone. If going organic I wouldn't flush obviously. Idc to get replies on my method. I've ready plenty of pops stuff and others. They convinced me not to flush. And I went straight back to my method which really isn't the definition of "flush"

I even did that loll too the point all leaves went crispy.
I dont think your gonna get it perfect. your running it through coco. I'd think something's gonna get collected I think you did fine. Believe most go 7 days after flush or 7 days plain water when the do it. I dont run coco..

I did a 28 day flush and probably

in the whole process I put 78 litres through each pot over the period of 28 days, using flawless finish the first 8 days.

min total I had 9 plants, total volume of water used was 702litres water
