Going into a 3 gallon pot...

Finished planting, with new ID system in place...these tags are seriously a WAY better method! They dont get washed up and out of the pots when a heavy rain or watering hits them...these STAY!! :)

Wow those look awesome, I remember you mentioning what time of wood chips/mulch you put into your soil and I see a lot of them in there.. I know you don't want to revile your secrete medium but what was that mix again, I have been meaning to add some mulch to the tops of the potted plants just to keep the tops a little more moist while the bottoms are still wet, but couldn't remember which type was good.. I don't need your whole mix! lol, just the type of wood you use that you already reviled in some other thread, just can't find it.

and also, when do you get your site back up to start selling, I remember there was a message when I checked after getting your peppers, but I am hoping all your plants don't get pre-ordered before I get a chance to lol.. if you could just give me an idea of when you usually start selling them that would be awesome!

Very jealous lol

ok cool thanks a lot, and that is great, I can get some Pine bark for something like $4 for a big 3cu foot bag or something like that.. going to grab some now actually haha

and that is great, I just want to make sure I don't get locked out of the more rare and desirable plants :D

oh and as an added P.S. bonus, I had my first 3 seedlings pop up this morning from the extra tray of plants i planted last friday.. all of them were the TS Butch T, seeds you gave me... so pretty cool, can't wait for those brain strains to pop up

Amazing. These Scorps are the ones you have pics of from seeds on, right? Wow. It doesn't seem like that long ago I was reading your accounts of sowing tons of seed, and now that's a ton of scorpions!
Righteous heat!

Excellent operation you got going on, Dale! That looks like an overtime job to me! Can't wait 'til you get your site up, and start selling again! I'd love a Chocolate Scorpion plant!

I wish I had the time to help you. I am not great at web design, but considering I stare at code all day I tend to be able to figure it out. Maybe when I get caught up on some other things I will be able to assist.
Please, do not feed the trolls!
