flushes
    #1101570 - 12/01/02 08:23 PM (14 years, 6 days ago)


I've been reading, and reading, getting ready for my first attempt at growing these wondeful little thing's..And I'm planning on following the PF tek, and maybe casing two cakes......okay but my question is, after the first harvest will the 2nd flush yield less? or does it all depend on the conditions?

oh ya and dunking after each flush do most of you cat's recommend this??????

Dunking is mostly recommended if u want a fat yield (I think you do don't u?) :wink:
uh, I always heard the first flush is smaller than the 2nd and 3rd

I've heard conflicting stories on different strains of cubensis. From what I understand some are more abundant fruiters around the second or third time, while you may be able to get the most out of others the first time.

Without dunking, the first flush gives the largest yield. If you dunk before birthing and after every flush, the first will also give the largest yield, but the yeilds will be considerably larger than the yields when the cakes aren't dunked.

Interesting....so the strain of the cubes don't have much of an effect on 2nd or 3rd flushes?

Okay thanks for the info...one more question i guess would be what have you guys found to be the best dunking method? or is it pretty much a dunk is a dunk is a dunk...and so on?
