Wow great plants there I'm on my way my seedlings had just emerged but question, can you grow/propogate the suckers of pepper plants like tomato suckers?

Clones you mean? Yeah, you can totally propagate the shoots if that's what you mean.

Excellent! The first flower has set fruit. I also like how my tent smells like flowers now.

Here's my clone/seedling setup. A simple desk lamp over a humidity dome. I am currently cloning basil, Mimosa Pudica, a downed TS Butch T, and in the back left, a pumpkin seedling.

Week 11, day 77. A week after the transplant. The leaves show damage from edema, but it's still doing fine. My Bhut and TS are both flowering, and the Bhut has a pod already! Middle TS is still in veg. Hydro seedling is doing great. Added a basil clone in there, I hear it repels mosquitos and the like.

Pod added a good quarter inch of length. Man, worm tea works miracles! Branches shot up an extra inch the day after applying it! I'll update on a normal schedule from now on. Every Sunday.

Week 13, day 91. Built a simple rack for hanging the lights. Upgraded the system to 6 lights. Plants are blooming furiously, but only one fuit has set. I assume it's because of overfertillizing on N. After feeding some Tiger Bloom, the flowers went from dropping a few specks of pollen to spraying a big cloud of pollen when vibrated.

An Air-Pot. Fairly common around the forums. Its a pot with many holes on the sides. Promotes healthy root growth.

Shigs, what kind of air movement do you have going on in there? I don't see any fans in the pics, and noticed that all your vent flaps are closed, so how are you introducing fresh air?

Is it necessary? My temps hang at 73-75. Do I need it for pollination? I can install a 6 inch fan in there, but I don't know if it's necessary.

Hi Shigshwa
What type of cfl bulbs do you have in your tent? I have a cheapjack tent going in my cellar and have two droplights like yours inside with incadescent bulbs for light and heat. It's pretty steamy in there with two incadescents, and I wonder if I shouldn't switch to two cfl bulbs on top for light and one underneath for heat. It's a pretty consistant fifty degrees in my cellar.

50 is pretty cold for any pepper growth of occur. I think switching to CFLS would be a better option, more light for the wattage. However, if your tent does not keep warm enough, then you probably need to leave the incandescents in there as well.

I have... 2 28W 5500K, 1 28W 6500K, and 3 42W 2700K
