Treating your hydroponic grow medium will help maintain optimum EC levels, which in turn contributes to optimum plant health.
Flushing is a technique used in between feeding weeks to ensure nutrition is available to the plant at all times, it is also used in the maturation (harvest) stage of a plants life.
Flushing your pots or systems free of excess nutrients allows for a fresh feeding schedule to maintain accurate levels. When it comes time to final harvest, if your plants haven’t been effectively 'cleaned', you will have built up nutrients and carbohydrates still within the plant's pot, resulting in a much 'harsher' crop that generally tastes like the nutrients you were plugging them with!
Tailored solutions like Terra Aquatica FlashClean are designed to be used in between feeding weeks, these specialised solutions actively help dissolve mineral deposits in the grow medium to flush out, aiding in your root zone efficiency and health.
