Two weeks before collect, flush your plants with unadulterated, ph-adjusted, room temperature water to expel any unused supplements, improve the flavor of the bud and diminish the cruelty of the smoke. To appropriately flush cannabis, pour a liberal measure of clean water (rather than supplement improved water) on the dirt, enable it to sit for a couple of minutes to get remaining supplements, at that point flush with clean water once more. Through the span of about fourteen days, the plant will expend any remaining supplements inside the plant itself and wash away residuals in the developing medium.
