Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Hello DGC, remember to smoke something green tomorrow. I have a question about EC. I have been trying to get better results and heard someone on the “High On Homegrown” aka “Percy’s Growroom” say to always water at 1.6 EC. What I did was start that approach with this seed run. I am running a Vivosun VS4000 in a 4×4 w/ temp and humidity controls. The plants are in 3 gal fabric pots with Fox Farm Happy Frog ( I added worm castings and ground egg shells and perlite also). I vegged with RO water and Recharge. After I flipped to flower(about week 4 from seed pop) I started with the Fox Farm trio adjusted to pH 6.3 +/- and a EC of 1.6+/-. everything looks good and I expect to get a respectable amount of seeds*.

I just wanted to know if this is a good practice for my next smokeable run (2 x feminized Ice Cream Candy) in the same set up with FF Ocean Forest in 5 gal fabric pots, or should I bring the EC up more? If I do bring up the EC how high of an EC can I run without flushing every 2 weeks? Everyone at Percy’s growroom was saying that you have to flush so often because the nutrient company knows the recommended EC is way too high.

Thank all of you for being kind, compassionate, and patient with us not so skilled growers.
