NYGC Desserts: Welcome to the Dessert Group!
Its been one wild ride in 2020 and as the year quickly comes to an end, we all have something awesome to look forward to. In a time where we are all physically disconnected, our amazing community is spreading positive vibes of collaboration, friendship, and some friendly competition with the annual New year’s grow competition. There are some great teams to choose from, however with the holiday season in flight, you know you crave those dessert strains that sound so delicious on a cold winter night. So, grab your favorite dessert seeds and grow the cookies, cakes, and candies you told yourself you wouldn’t eat for your new year’s resolution! I will be growing: Zkittles, Wedding Cake, Miracle Alien Cookies
I look forward to growing with all you like minded sweet tooth's!

Good morning fellow Sweet tooth's and Dessert lovers,
Final seed selections:
Purple Caper Seeds - MAC Cookies (fem, photo) - MAC6 x COOKIE F2 Epic combination! Combining the Extreme trichome production of the MAC with the compact perfect Cookie F2 flower. You get the best of both worlds. This starts with an ice cream flavor and finishes with Gas! Great yields indoors and out....
High Supplies - Wedding Cake (fem, photo)
High Supplies - Zkittles (fem, photo)
I emailed high-supplies asking what breeders the Zkittles and Wedding cake are from, they responded stating they are the breeder. Lets hope for good genetics!
With just about 24 hours to go, the seeds are now soaking in water. Tomorrow at midnight they will go into paper towels where they will begin their journey!
After 24 hours in a dome in rapid rooters the MAC cookies is the first up. I can see the others a day or 2 behind. Welcome to the world little ones!
The rapid rooters starting collecting to much water in their plastic trays and 2 of the 4 had radicals out the bottom. I planted the 3 sprouts into coco. RH is 90, temp is 79F. My tent has puddles on the floor from the humidity. I should inviest in a larger dome 🙂
Also 1 of the sprouts is an upside down girl? Wonder if I should re-germinate one to replace her?
Feed seems to be a tad weak and causing yellowing. Upped the EC to 600 and fed. Should correct soon. Mixed GH line using docs schedule for week 1
Alright, been almost a week since last post. A lots changed. Now that I have the feed/EC adjusted just right they are starting to really green up and grow. I also started another MAC seed for the one cola challenge that I also plan on keeping in a solo cup or small small container. Current EC 1200 and 5x fertigation's a day for 20 seconds each. 20 gal res is maybe half full and I am worried about the runaway pH as this is my first go with a res vs hand water. Thinking about trying the Torus perfect pH device that you drop in the res and it keeps a 5.8 -6.2 ph zone automagically or so they claim. May help me sleep better at night :p
PICS: 2 MAC Cookies, 1 Zkittles, 1 Wedding Cake
Topped one...what to do with the others...girls are exploding! The little one in the middle is for the 1 cola challenge so she needs to be pruned back of all growth asap.
Been awhile since last update. My res pump died and my girls didn't get watered for 3 days. Issue resolved, and I believe they bounced back alright...Feed is 1500ec res starts at 5.8 and ends up around 6.4 by the time its empty. I will now ALWAYS have spare pumps ready to go!
A little over a week since valentines day flip. 4 girls! One with 11 fingers I might add :). I think I need to take them out of the tent and try to defoil or lst as they are way to dense and airflow/light are not great under the canopy. I grew them to big sounds funny to say, but true.
The Stretch is on! Hopefully they don't grow to high, as I am not a big fan of super cropping. However, there is always one that seems to grow directly into the LEDs and needs to be tamed back...Else be burned up by the SUN. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3mbBbFH9fAg
