Default Flushing Plants

Hi
Quick question, does anybody here use carbonated water when flushing?
I recently read it is a good idea/tip to do in the 1st week of flushing the plants.
I also wanted to make sure this was a good thing to do or if it makes any real difference at all? Thanks

Never heard that try it out let us know. I heard somewhere else that yucca plant extract helps break up salts in soil to allow flushing. Never tried it

I wouldn't do it unless you're willing to muck up the plant, kinda like gambling and money.

I cant understand what the perceived benefit is? Flushing, we want to remove chemicals and dissolved solids from the plant by feeding only water and using the stores in the plant. Seltzer water has dissolved solids AND isn't very pH balanced, at all.

Also, it might just cause the roots to dry and prematurely kill the plant. Cannabis takes in CO2 at the leaves, but utilizes aerobic respiration below the soil, in the roots. Forcing co2 into the roots certainly wont lead to more co2 uptake, will add more TDS to the soil, and that's on a good day, right?

Roots need oxygen. Starve them of oxygen, and bad shit happens. Roots are made to take in oxygen, not CO2, and is why some use H2O2. The Anti CO2.

Makes no sense to use it IMHO. I could be convinced if someone proves with science its beneficial.
But logically putting CO2 where O2 is supposed to be, isnt logical. Though I may be missing something.

It MIGHT help release bound nutrients because CO2 and water form carbonic acid, but as 59 said, roots breath oxygen.

Would not recommend. Very acidic typically 5, sometimes less. pH’d H2O with a little bonemeal can not hurt. Of course I have heard flushing with Jack Daniels makes em real potent nyuk nyuk 🤣
