So in a short time I will be able to decide this for myself once and for all.. I took 4 big buds 2 weeks ago and the plants had not been flushed. Using Botanicare Pro Bloom Soil in Hydro grow White Russian. Now plants have 7 days left and have been flushing for a full week plus a day or so.. Will post and let you know if any difference.. Have never flushed and never had any bad smoke so now I will know.. Anyone else wants to know the outcome stay tuned to my future post... till then!
