1st photo in 20 years = Flipping to Flower

My nutrient company says to do a 6.0 ph water feeding at the flip to flower. Also two weeks before harvest.

I am getting ready to flip my Granddaddy purp by nirvana anytime and she does need watering so do I do straight distilled water or add some calmag with it for the 6.0 ph water feeding. This thing will go about a week till I can feed her after that. Will she be alright with just water? 

This grow is the 1st in 20+ years for photos. I know I don't stop feeding the autos lol

          • Soil is not a hydroponic medium man, so it can hold onto nutrients for longer than a week.

            some soils can feed for months js.

            • Maybe the flush, with slightly acidic water, gives a mild flush, to get rid of any build up in the soil.

              A few people on here flush during the grow.

                • I flush at the flip and when I when I change out the res I let it run for 2 days with just root nutes. I also start feeding flower nutes the week before the flip, it doesnt shorten the flowering time but it seems to advance it. No Bloom nutes before the flip and its 2-3 weeks before I see clear signs of flower. Bloom nutes the week before and its 2 weeks or less to see signs of flower.
