Final Flush with Final Phase, Time in a Bottle

Here it is week seven of bloom of my second crop grown with Connoisseur A & B. The number of buds are just as abundant as last time (32 this time, 30 last time) and the calyxes have started swelling almost as soon as I started feeding them with this super premium basic fert, plus all the supplements.

If you take a look at the Nutrient Calculator, week 7 of bloom calls for 0 mL or grams of all our usual ingredients, not just Connoisseur, but also Humic Acid, Fulvic Acid, B-52, Barricade, Carbo Load, Sensi Zym, etc.—none of these are to be added during week 7.

The only thing that I added this time was Final Phase. Yes, it’s time to flush my six ladies, in order to get rid of any possible chemical taste or salt residue. Final Phase contains a proprietary formula of “empty chelators” that remove any further traces of fertilizer from the root zone.

Final Phase was recirculated in my six bucket ebb and flow system for about six hours, then I drained my reservoir completely. The only thing that I add from now on is pure water. I recently installed a water purifier on the water pipe that I use to fill up by rez.

From now until harvest, which should be in about ten days time, I’ll just top up my rez each day with pure water. No more ferts, no more additives, no more supplements. It’s time for my six ladies to purify themselves before they offer up the fruit of their labor to Claire and I as medicine.

If you’re hesitant about using Final Phase, afraid that it will somehow rob your plants of nutrients, or deprive them of their taste and bouquet, don’t be. The aroma and sweetness of my buds was left intact the last time, as I’m sure it will be again.

In fact, I used Sweet Leaf a few weeks ago in order to impart even more sweetness and aroma. Connoisseur by itself ensures a very strong unmistakeable bouquet and a very pleasant taste, so much so that I had to install an ozone generator to keep the telltale odor from my neighbors.

But with the addition of Sweet Leaf, my harvest will guarantee us the sweetest, most tasty smoke you can imagine. Of course, it depends on the strain that you grow, but whether you’re growing sativa or indica or a hybrid, this combination of Advanced Nutrients products is sure to bring out the best in your grass.

Whether you call it grass, weed, ganja, or skunk, it is a sacred herb that has been used in healing for centuries. The sense of well-being imparted by a good smoke is worth a million dollars in this stressed-out world of ours.

Claire and I have a little ritual that we follow around harvest time, during which we thank the Creator for blessing us with this potent herb to cure our migraines, nausea, pressure, and pain.

We both look forward to our second Connoisseur harvest and will report on it as soon as it happens. Have a great weekend, everyone, and please visit my MySpace page. I count Marc Emery, Loretta Nall, Neil Young, Allen Ginsberg, and Jim Croce among my friends.

If you did a double take for the last two, yes, even those that are no longer on the earth plane still have a presence on MySpace. In virtual reality, Allen and Jim live on, and that’s the way it should be!

I can still hear Jim singing:

If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I’d like to do
Is to save every day
Till eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you
