Orange Crush Strain Review

Looking Good! Now waiting on trichomes to cloud up.

5.0 rating
24 May 2020

I have been growing in soil for almost 10 years and have shied away from hydroponics due to my fear of the unknown, and fear of the complexity of setting up a system. During my last Northern Lights grow (this review is not about Northern Lights, but how I ended up growing Orange Crush…. read on.), I had a terrible fungus gnat infestation that reduce my yield by about 60%.. I decided I needed to take the plunge and set up a hydroponic system so I could worry less about soil related issues (the gnats were in the soil mix I got from my supplier).
My first hydroponic grow is Orange Crush. I started my seeds on March 1. The sprouts went into DWC on March 15. I converted the DWC to a very simple recirculating DWC.on April 1. Now it is Memorial Day weekend (May 24th) and the plants are 5+ feet all and the buds are so dense and heavy that I had to support them so they wouldn’t fall over and break their stems. The flower pistols are now just starting to senese and turn brown. I am now waiting for the trichomes to start cloud up before I harvest. The buds are incredibly sticky and smell very fruity. I suspect I will be harvesting by Jun 15 (seed to harvest in about 14 weeks). Likely, it will be mid- to late July before the bud is dried, cured, and ready to taste.
I am very happy. Orange Crush is very easy indoor hydroponic grow. Very little maintenance is required to grow tall, healthy, and fruity plants.
I will let you know how these taste when the time comes. Enjoy!
