Correct me if I'm wrong but:
When flushing, doesn't the plant use the energy stored up in the fan leaves to finish the plant off?
Also when drying, if you leave the fan leaves on, it will take longer to dry, but will break down more narsty chlorophyll giving you a tastier smoke. Of course you will have to dry prune by hand, but that's just sticky goopy fun... kinda like sex
I always love jumping into the "to prune or not to prune" battles
, it's a shame you have so little to work with in the end, but I hope it's kind to you
