Dunking bulk substrate before 1st flush
    #11397453 - 11/06/09 01:44 PM (8 years, 7 months ago)

Okay so I could swear I remember a post from RR saying its good to dunk bulk substrates before there first flush. I have a monotub thats fully colonized and has been for about 3-4 days and im about to start fruiting and I am cosindering doing this. But I cant seem to find the post that says how long to dunk for pre flush. Any help or information in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

no need to dunk a mono b4 1st flush, it should have plenty of moisture in the sub itself for the 1st flush, then dunk for 4hrs.

Dunking before the first flush is only really necessary if you mixed the substrate on the dry side, which helps to get faster colonization.

if its 100%, fruit it.. I have had substrates be not so good on the hydrated side to begin with.. but they first flushed and stalled.. then I have dunked between flushes for up to 6 more flushes.. just play it out as is.. GL!
