Once you near the end of your recipe, you should be checking out your trichomes with a 60x jewellers loupe available in our online store.
You are looking for your trichomes (the round ends that look like the tops of mushrooms or balls on a stalk) to have turned from clear to cloudy and amber to indicate that your plant is ready to be harvested. If you are seeing 40% of your trichomes are turning cloudy, it's time for you to be in the flush stage!
During flush, we don't give your plant any food, forcing it to use up all of it's reserves. This makes for a very smooth final product. Try to flush your plant for at least 5 days of the 10 available in this stage.
