More isn't always better. As gardeners we are constantly trying to push our plants to the limits and when it comes to the nutrients, sometimes we push things a little too far. A fertilizer overload can build over time or happen after a single error in application. Final Flush is a fertilizer rinse solution with multiple active ingredients designed to work together, dissolving excess salts that have accumulated around the plant's roots. The function performed by the organic acids leads to the salts being knocked out of exchange sites in the medium and also cleaned from irrigation lines and other points of accumulation within the systemother system.
During a fast build up, Final Flush can target the salt within the medium, minimizing damage to the rhizosphere and attempt to keep growth performing at a high level. After a long period of slow accumulation, salts can be high within plant structures. Using Final Flush before harvest forces the plant to metabolize any unconverted salts it may have in its tissues, prior to harvest. This process will ensure the highest quality fruit. Beyond the unscented regular Final Flush, there are several carbohydrate enhanced options available for gardeners looking to add a mild energy source for plants during the final stages prior to harvesting a yield.
When using Final Flush, a good way to assess the need to continue flushing is to check the salt levels in the lechate(run-off) that is coming out the bottom of containers, or alternatively the salt reading in a reservoir after using straight water and Final Flush. Keeping these readings can give you the knowledge of when regular fertilizing can begin again, or when salt levels have dropped enough for harvesting to occur.
SHAKE WELL before using. Observe for visible signs of excess fertilizer salts such as the appearance of a white, powdery residue on the surface of the growing medium. Use 10 ml of Final Flush per 5 L (2 tsp/5qt) of water. Safe to use while plants are growing or between crops.
Hydroponics: Add Final Flush mixture to pure water in the nutrient reservoir and run the system for about one hour.
Soil / Soilless Applications:
Salt Accumulation: Apply Final Flush mixture liberally to the top of the container and allow any excess solution to drain out the bottom. Repeat a second time if necessary and then wait one week before resuming a regular feeding program.
Prior to Harvest: Use mixture 7-10 days before harvest, to remove unnecessary fertilizer salts and fertilizer flavors.
