    Having to flush depends on several things.
    Using too much nutrient causing build up.
    Having a low humidity situation causes more evaporation and therefore nutrient buildup.
    Fabric pots also dry out faster causing more build up.
    Took me a while to figure out and adjust for those.
    Good luck

    I was planning on a flush before flower but got busy and didn't. Next grow will definitely do that. I also think I needed to cut back on the nutes more. Was giving less than the coco feed schedule from growweedeasy but still got a good bit of salt build up on sides of the pot.

    Even though they say not to flush autopots I did several times when I had ph lockout but did anyway. Made sure the runoff was close to a good ph range and then continued on. I had many good grows in spite of nutrient build up and flushing. Found the best time to flush was just prior to switching to flower nutes.
    Looks like a nice harvest coming up.

    Start of week 7 and i cut the nutrients and am now giving pure water ph5.8 to 6.5. Not suppose to flush in autopots because the salts rise to the top. Hope they dont fade to quick already pretty yellow from nute lock out few weeks ago. Seeing half cloudy half clear trichomes but regardless of how trichomes look they getting chopped based on how good its looking. I should get another week easy but hoping for 2 weeks or more. Shortened the timer 30 min twice now over the last two weeks. Gonna take away another hour this week and another next week to encourage it to ripen up faster.

    Start of week 6 and chugging right along. Got the yellowing to stop by adjusting ph to 6.5 for over a week. My fault for keeping ph at 5.8 for so long. Buds are fattening up and getting really frosty. I'm confident I'll make it another two weeks easy. I also took a trip to Salem Oregon to help a family member. I was gone a week and the only thing my wife had to do was small ph adjustments. Last update was my wife's pic while I was gone. Rez lasted 6 days before I refilled it and could gone another 2 days easy. It's a 25 gal rez and next grow I'm gonna run 4 pots instead of 6.

    Well ph in the pots got down to 5.0 and got locke out. Not wanting flush I adjusted to 7.0 in the rez. Hopefully the fade doesn't get worst. Got another 4 weeks to go.

    3 weeks since the flip and finally got these girls moved into the 5x5 tent. I also did a decent lollipop job. Filled a whole 5 gal bucket. I am seeing some yellowing leaves. I think its cause of my lazy rez maintenance and I let ph stay to long at 6.0. Other than that chugging right along. Might throw a trellis over it tomorrow to help spread out branches. But I like the idea of flushing if needed and trellis won't allow that.

    I also forgot to tell you guys they will be moved soon into a 5x5 tent in my house for the winter. Just waiting on my shed grow to finish flowering. Maybe I'll actually put in insulation this year.
