NYGC Fruit Salad: African Orange Glue

3rd grow,first Grow Challenge! I‘ve been a long time lurker and can’t wait to get started on my first Grow Challenge, to learn and grow together.  I broke into my seedbank and couldn’t figure out what I wanted to grow, or which category to enter and then I came across this little gem, African Orange Glue by Equilibrium Genetics.  This box was a gift from a friend, so I thought it would be perfect to give it a shot.  Anyway, as the name suggests, it could fit into a number of challenge categories, so I decided to sprout three seeds and grow them individually for three categories; Fruit Salad (Orange is a fruit), Color Diet (orange is also a color), and Global Cuisine (that better be self-explanatory).  While each of these plants will be grown in the same tent, I plan on starting and growing each plant for their specific category,  keeping track of, photographing and journaling each plant separately.  I hope to see all of your great work as the challenge progresses.  All the best, -The Advocate

SET-UP:

Veg Tent- Spider Farmer 4x2 with an AC Infinity S4  exhaust fan and Spider Farmer SF2000 LED

Flower Tent- Gorilla Grow Tent 4x4 with AC Infinity T6 intake and exhaust fan, and an HLG 600 R-spec LED

And so it begins!  I let the seeds soak overnight and washed and buffered the coco with a little CalMag and ReCharge.  Then just before midnight eastern, dropped in the little ones and gently tucked them in for a wee nap.

Fruit Salad is the first to pop through the coco!  Did a light watering around the humidity dome to encourage a little moisture.  My furnace went out today, too, which is always awesome. 😞 So I placed her on a seed mat in another tent, hopefully the heat from my light and being in with the others will keep her warm enough.

Things seem to be progressing.  The first true leaves are starting to expand a bit.  I gave them their first taste of the GH nutrients today at 1/4 strength and used distilled water with a little CalMag in it.

My fruit salad entry is doing pretty well on her own. She stands up tall and has the second largest leaf set of my NYGC plants.  Seems to me that she’s responding well to the 1/4 strength GH Flora 3 part.  I have very “high” hopes for her.

I set up a new tent this weekend.  It’s a 5x5 with a 48” rolling shelf along one side with two KindLED X80 lights under two of the shelves for vegging and a spider Farmer SF4000 on the other side. Should be a good setup.

Transplant out of the Solo Cup!  These girls are doing really well.  Since all of these had kinda spindly stems, especially my twisted Global entry, I buried her a little deep in the coco and she seems to be happy in her new 1 gallon pot.  I usually wait longer to flip  than most with photoperiod plants,  it since we all flip at the same time, I think I’ll go from this 1 gallon pot to a 5 gallon fabric pot, a week or two before we flip.  All in all things are going well.  My extra plant seems to be the biggest and bushiest, but they’re all healthy and happy.

My Fruit Salad is really starting to fill in.  She loves her new pot and switching her to some more aggressive veg nutrients, she seems to be responding well and really stretching her legs.  It’s amazing to see how much a plant can grow, even overnight.
