I haven't been on here in years and I'm surprised to remember my password. Anyways I was eating some oranges and collected about 11 seeds in total. I removed their protective layer and placed them in a damp paper towel in a Ziploc bag and left them. A month passed by and I totally forgot about them until a few days ago. Out of the 11 seeds only 1 took root, 3 long roots. I grabbed some Miracle-gro garden soil I was growing my herbs and mints in since it's the only thing I have available for right now. Currently I have it in a plastic cup with a hole on the bottom for drainage. I water it with filtered tap water when the top gets a little dry and leave it where it can get plenty of direct sunlight. I'm not sure if this is the proper way to grow an orange seedling, but it sprouted and I can see a leaf forming.
Any citrus heads out there that can give me any advice on growing oranges? What type of soil should I use when it's time to transplant? What type of fertilizers do I use? This wasn't going to be a big project for me, but now I am intrigued.
I have an old school phone ($20 a month for unlimited everything so I'm not complaining) so bear with me on the quality.
