BTW if you are going all organic and from the sounds of it you are; then there is no need to flush during flowering because there are no chemicals to get rid of...  It might be a good idea to give them a couple very large doses of water in the last 2 weeks anyways, perhaps it will improve taste. :shrug:

actually, I disagree with that.  There are reasons to flush your plant during a flowering cycle, even if you are using organic nutes.  However, it should only be done as a last resort.  You can still overfeed with organic nutrients, and sometimes fixing other problems only makes them worse (like feeding a plant more Mg when it's locked out) and the extra nutrients need to get flushed out. 

Hell, i've always liked flushing out my grows during the end anyways to ensure I didn't leave anything I didn't want to smoke in bowl.  However, in your case, it seems like you don't need to do this yet.  I wouldn't put my plants through the stress of virtually drowning them for no reason at all.  However, if you want to learn how to do it, no problem.

Flushing them is easy, you just want to pour double to triple the volume of your growing containers.  I've found the easiest way to do this is to take the plants into your bathroom and flush them in the tub.  If that's not a possibility get a decent size rubbermaid and use that as your flushing container.

So, if you're growing in a three gallon pot, prepare 6-9 gallons of water and just pour them through your pots.  That's it, you've successfully flushed your plants.  They'll look a little wilty for a day or two but they'll perk up pretty quickly.
