Sweet Flush™ , is designed to be used at the end of a crop’s bloom cycle to trigger the last reproductive stage of the plant, forcing it to process and assimilate existing on-board nutrients already contained within the plants. Sweet Flush contains citric acid, specific electrolytes and select mono and disaccharides which provide energy for the biosynthesis of important plant metabolites and macromolecules.
Pre-harvest treatments with Sweet Flush enhance flavors and increase the quality of yields in fruits and flowers by flushing out unwanted harsh nutrient salts.
Sweet Flush is a scientifically formulated isotonic drench solution, which utilizes free-form chelates to bind with excess nutrient salts and safely leach them from high-value crops. Attempting to leach by using only tap or deionized water can lead to hypotonic conditions which cause cellysis with outflow of essential electrolytes and nutrients. This can actually starve plants of valuable nutrients so they lose floral growth and resin percentages before harvest.
Sweet Flush is also very effective when used during all stages of plant growth to correct the most common cause of crop failure – the excess build-up of nutrient salt deposits in soils or soilless grow media. High salt concentrations in the soil solution cause a shrinkage of plant cell protoplasm away from the cell wall as a result of osmosis. This condition, known as plasmolysis, can eventually lead to irreversible wilting.
When used as part of a complete nutrient feeding program, this vital flushing agent is recommended to be used as the only additive during the final phase prior to crop harvest.
