Those Embers look beautiful Paul! Thanks for the picture. I bet they'll be a sight to behold fully grown. What color are the peppers? I ended up getting some Royal Black seeds and just planted those, so with any luck I'll have at least one variety with some pretty, dark leaves. Oh the things you don't know you want until you see someone else has them...

Hey looky there. I'm winning a competition that I'm not even a part of. Figures... :banghead:


:dance: And the prize is really worthwhile, too :woohoo:

Isn't that the truth, Andy! The Black Pearl and the Embers look
almost identical, except for size, and they both show traits from
the Bolivian Rainbow. Would be interesting to know the 'family tree'
of these darker, purple-y varieties. Weekend coming! Have a great
one Andy!

BTW I think the peppers are red at ripeness.

Viewership per post on average: PaulG - 24.25 vpp (Views Per Post) Shane - 31.25 vpp Ken - 14.17 vpp Spicy Chicken Glog - 29.31 vpp Compmodder - 40.49 vpp Looks like both of you are being beaten by two that aren't even competing haha :) Good thing its a friendly (and funny) competition. Your numbers are both higher than mine however :)


Your #'s are lower because you are weak and insignificant! :mope: :rofl:

I wonder how many of each of our views if from each other??? That would be an interesting stat! I spend more time staring at Pauls glog than my own I think...

It would actually probably be scary :D

How about some chinense today? Haven't shown those much.
I can see why folk like to grow them, they are a very pretty plant.
All of these went into dirt on 1/22. Numbers are (germ days/days since germ)

Some of my baccatums are beginning to shoot up like
my annuums. This Inca Red Drop is the most vigorous:

Thanks for dropping by - hope you enjoy the pics even
though there aren't any of blistered pods, yet! Good luck
everyone as you move forward with your seasons :cheers:

I love the fuzzy new growth on the rocoto, almost looks mammalian! I hope it
grows out to be a nice plant. The chinense plants have just been cooking
along. I love their squat growth habit. Don't know why I haven't shown them
much, guess I didn't want to jinx 'em by putting them up for display!

Have a great weekend, Shane!

Rainy day. Not much going on, even in the grow tents; the plants are just waiting for potting up and moving to greenhouse. They are good for a few weeks more, as I haven't seen roots emerging from the bottoms of the pots, yet, except for a few isolated cases. The annuums are all starting to branch at the top, now, and form buds. I'm not going to worry about the flower buds for the time being, just let the plants do their thing. With temps approaching 60F at night, the buds will probably yellow and drop off anyway. They don't have the best light situation, so the lower leaves on the tall plants are not getting enough light, and so when they get droopy and yellow, I just cut them off. The plants seem to have responded well to the 6500K lamps as opposed to the 5000K, but I would like the annums to be a bit greener looking. Maybe the fish fert I have been giving is too low strength, or maybe I need to add something else. Maybe since the annuums are going into bloom maybe a shot of Epsom Salts would do. What is the best strength for that? I did a little earlier, but in very dilute form. I have tracked down a hydro shop close by, so I am going to look there for some kelp, calmag, etc. They carry botanicare products and others, as well. I really don't want to spend a ton of $ on ferts.

Here are a few update pics.

Early Jalapeno branching and budding:

Cayenne, same drill:

Here are the three donor plants stems we've been following. Notice that all three have
selected one of the branches to be a leader.

The serrano has gained a half to three-fourths inch since last pic:

The cayenne stem is starting to branch and bud as well:

The aji stem:

That's all for now. Will post clone updates in a couple of days. I'm really
enjoying other folk's cloning and grafting experiments, as well, so keep up
the good work! Thanks for dropping in to browse, and good luck to all as
we lurch forward to Spring.

All looking extremely healthy there Paul. Nice work. In my experience my baccatums are always more gangly (some almost vine like) then the other varrieties.
Annums stay upright where as the baccatums start going all over the show in some cases just spilling over the side of their containers (especially Aji lemon)
My tallest growing annum is definately my goats weed and if I knew how tall it would get before branching I would have tipped it or LST'd it very early on as it has to be propped to stop leaning right over.
In my experience with my purple varieties (I have explosive ember, black prince, purple flash, pimenta de neyde, purple tiger (best taste) and now a mystery hybrid chacoense which has purple pods and they all turn a vibrant red once ripe except pimenta de neyde which stays purple even when ripe and too early to tell if the chacoense will turn.
Sorry for hijacking. :D
Carry on with the great work

Interesting how they pour their growth into one shoot more than the other.Probably a good thing because at the rate they were going they would have really been top heavy. Looking good man!

Calmag seems to have helped with the green-ness of my plants. I use 1/2 tsp per 1/2 gallon and alternate that with the fish ferts. So far, so good, but who knows what might change. Some of mine have just started with the flowers as well, so I was interested as to what you are going to do. Mine are inside with a decent night temp, so I may have to pinch mine. I have to admit though, I kind of want to just see a flower first... Only two months until outside planting, right?

Took me a while to get here-damn theres a lot of really logs out there.As to the Tepins/petins/pequins being furry....I have never noticed this on mine ,
my petins/pequins are from source of origin ie Texas/Mexico....I will do the "reading glasses" exam(hey easy cheap way to do anything delicate with the seedings or check for bugs-try this its easy/cheap).I would toss this one to some of our "wilds" experts- infact I'll do that next, just to be sure.
Did you cut most of the leaves back when you put the fallen over sprout in the soil?I may have missed the history there...but I have great luck, removing leaves except the top 2-3, and making sure I go 1-2 bare nodes up from the cut in root hormone-more roots than from single cut....mo' roots mo betta!
I can't like anything here- I have exceeded my "positivity quotient" for the day :rofl: ,....but true.
Have a good one

Right on bro! My offer still stands.

All looking extremely healthy there Paul. Nice work. In my experience my baccatums are always more gangly (some almost vine like) then the other varrieties. Annums stay upright where as the baccatums start going all over the show in some cases just spilling over the side of their containers (especially Aji lemon) My tallest growing annum is definately my goats weed and if I knew how tall it would get before branching I would have tipped it or LST'd ? it very early on as it has to be propped to stop leaning right over.

Sorry for hijacking. :D Carry on with the great work


You are always welcome here, Tripp, I value your input. My Inca Red Drops and Bishop's Crowns are doing what you say, although still able to stay upright. The Omnicolors seem more squatty body and almost chinense like. I have pinched a couple of more annuums; will post pics in next couple of days.

Interesting how they pour their growth into one shoot more than the other.Probably a good thing because at the rate they were going they would have really been top heavy. Looking good man!



You are probably right, Shane! I kind of thought the aji was going to stay more balanced, but the one branch shot up over a period of 2-3 days! Are the night time temps in SD treating you well, or still variable? Our Spring here is long, so it seems like the temps stay variable right up until May, and sometimes later! Hoping for a nice, normal west coast Spring and Summer this year! Thanks for visiting, my friend - enjoy what little is left of the weekend!

Calmag seems to have helped with the green-ness of my plants. I use 1/2 tsp per 1/2 gallon and alternate that with the fish ferts. So far, so good, but who knows what might change.

I have to admit though, I kind of want to just see a flower first... Only two months until outside planting, right?


Hey, Andy, thanks for the advice - I think I will give that a try. I went to a local hydro grow store and picked up some Botanicare Calmag and a couple of other products; Rainbow mix with Mychorrhizae for transplanting, and some Organic Kelp by Age Old Organics. Also got a five gallon bucket of dried molasses from a buddy of mine who does a lot of indoor growing. Now i just need some good advice about using these. I have just used fish fert for so many years!:

Took me a while to get here-damn theres a lot of really logs out there.
I feel your pain, Dave! It seems like the list of updated grow logs turns over every 12 hours!
Thanks for visiting this one!
As to the Tepins/petins/pequins being furry....I have never noticed this on mine ,
my petins/pequins are from source of origin ie Texas/Mexico....I will do the "reading glasses" exam(hey easy cheap way to do anything delicate with the seedings or check for bugs-try this its easy/cheap).I would toss this one to some of our "wilds" experts- in fact I'll do that next, just to be sure. Both my tepins and chiltepins have smooth leaves, but I didn't really examine them closely when they were small. Perhaps they had some peach fuzz then.
Did you cut most of the leaves back when you put the fallen over sprout in the soil?I may have missed the history there...but I have great luck, removing leaves except the top 2-3, and making sure I go 1-2 bare nodes up from the cut in root hormone-more roots than from single cut....mo' roots mo betta! I agree here, the more stem and nodes the better. These clones were so young and small, I didn't have anything but stem to work with. I left bigger leaves on at first, spraying often, and then snipped them as they became wilted.
I can't like anything here- I have exceeded my "positivity quotient" for the day :rofl: ,....but true. : ) I see, are the 'like this' police the same ones as the 'emoticon police' and 'image police'?
Have a good one
Dave

LST or LST'd is simply Low Stress Training, a Method employed quite commonly among hobby growers of more underground herbs. :D

You basically train (pin, peg, tie, weight ) the main growing tip/s of the plant in question so that they are lower then the rest of the growing stem, this creates a situation where this releases the apical dominance caused by auxins in the main grow tip, auxins are then redistributed from the 1 main growth tip to the side branches/nodes along the stem creating multiple new growth tips along its length. I have one at home that I did a bit of a trial with which I can take some shots of to show you if you like.

Does that make sense??

Sure thing, Tripp. I have heard of that before,
just didn't know what it's called :lol: Thanks for
including the science behind it. I may give that
a try with a real leggy plant. I guess you could
sort of plant it at an angle to help the process
along?

If its just planted at an angle, tropisms kick in and straighten the plant... In one of my grafts I planted the host at a 45, and tried an approach graft... the host straightened up within a day or two pulling the scion out of the ground...

if its planted at an angle, and tied, perhaps that would make a difference.
