first flush was mediocre, reevaluating strategy for second
    #3645745 - 01/18/05 10:58 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

A friend's first flush from BRF 1/2 pint cakes was pretty lackluster so he's evaluating his options for the next flush. His fruiting chamber is a Tit w/ pearlite humid fanned 3x a day.

1. It's too late to break up the cakes and case them, correct?

2. When cold dunking between flushes diluted H202 should be included? or just pure distilled water?

3. "Bottom casing" the cakes, does that really do much?

4. Any other strategies you think might help my friend out in his second flush?

1)  Yeah, alot of nutrients have already been expended on the first flush.

2)  Plain water.

3)  Sure does, it adds needed moisture to the cakes if done properly.

4)  No ideas for 2nd flush except dunking.  If friend is going to stick with BRF cakes, crumble and case them in the future.  Much better results can be expected  :goodluck:

what would be the average increase of flush if you cased the pfs, say one cake?

You should always use h202 when you dunk.

The average increase of a flush if you cased PFs for one cake is 0-14 grams.
