Flushing in soil
Hey there @chefomj! So I was going to do dr-cocos method for flushing, but my one plant is in more dirt than coco. And now I've put gnat Nix on the soil so I can't tell when I need to water it anymore! Idk if your familiar with gnat Nix it's just a top dressing, I tried digging through it to feel the soil and ended up mixing it up .
Anyways I was gonna use florakleen and water it twice a day until I have a run off of 200 EC and keep it there for 4 days while still watering it everyday .is this an ok practice in soil? I don't know if root rot will be a problem so close to the end!
How do you do your flushes in soil?
Once you use florakleen it releases all the nutrient bonds so you should use it at least a week prior. With soil I find that a couple plain waterings and then the florakleen then let them dry out. The best way to tell if you can water again is if you lift the pot and it is light. I typically use a 2 week flush when using bottled nutes.
