question: i have heard that good organic marijuana when cured correctly is burned, it leaves a white ash. and with marijuana grown with chemical fertilizers when burned, leaves a black ash. have any of you found this to be true? i thought the black ash was from the plants not beeing flushed with pure water before harvest thoroughly. any thoughts?

Correct, If you don't flush your plants when you use chem nutes your weed won't burn properly and you'll be able to taste the chem salts. If you flush out your chem fert weed properly it will burn as white as any organic weed.

black ash or white ash can come from organic feeding and it can come from salt based (chemical) feeding, it is all about feeding the plants what they need and not overfeeding, feeding the plant what it can metabolize, if I fed you 6 cheeseburgers a day you would burn black too

I always go for the white ash. I have found it is easier to flush non-organic ferts out, but I prefer organic herb. I grew hydro for 8 years and was always super anal about flushing for 2 solid weeks, but I switched to organic/soil a few years back and the same two weeks never netted me the same results. My latest crop got 3 weeks flush, but I feel like I am really missing some key points of hard fert pushing. I am now straddling the fence on which is better. Great thread!:bongin:

With organics you have to time out your amendments. TOO much and there is no way to flush it out.So finding what a plant likes can be a trick with organics. Howard Resh it up and then make a mix similar to what he is talking about organic or salt either or can bring you to the place you want to be it is just a matter of persistence...
