Looks great, look at the root ball! Since you cannot give us the recipe for your soil mix. Can you give us any recipe that you know of besides the top secret one? :)

Lookin nice, but what are ya goin to do with them all? I know ya plan on selling plants, but what will ya do with all the pods that ya get from the plants ya don't sell. I know you can unload some here, but thats gonna be a ton of pods. Nice Choco fatalli, grew one last year and it was awful, no heat and even less flavor... I still have it in a pot, but if it isn't any better then out it goes.

Actually about 8 tons to be exact...lol :) We have buyers interested, and also in the process of lining up more :) They will have no problem going somewhere i can assure you of that :) We are selling plants, but our main focus is on the fruit...co-packers, pepper importers/exporters, food distributors, chefs/restaraunt owners, hot sauce makers, powder/flake makers, bunches of places to go with them :)

wow that is crazy, you still don't have your whole grow list posted yet, I've been keeping a wish/shopping list of a few I saw you mention for when your ready to start shipping those plants out, :whistle: those are some crazy rootballs, I had some pretty good ones when I did mine, but even the best ones were not anywhere as thick as those roots.. very nice :eek:

Looks great, look at the root ball! Since you cannot give us the recipe for your soil mix. Can you give us any recipe that you know of besides the top secret one? :)


I have only been able to get that it is 40% pine bark fines lol.. so I stuck about 30% in my mix that I just planted up, hopefully when I transplant them in a few months they will look half as good!

What is the reason for use pine chips instead of using peat with vermiculite?

So just reading between the lines here you are basically saying you grow on a small scale then ;) :D nah seriously bro those are some serious scales. I hope you find all the buyers you need this coming season and best of luck for the harvests.

  Everything on this glog = Just F%£*king marvelous.

I was out getting some soil this morn, and Bowling Forest products has Pine fines 2 cu ft for 2.50 I got a bag just too fool with. I think it is dependent on where in the country your soil is blended, Fl has loads of pines, see them being hauled to the mill every day. I bet in the N.W. it is something else that is somewhat local...

yeah I can get 4 cu ft of shredded pine chips for $6, which is great for me, better than buying all that soil.. which I'm not doing anymore since it is better to just mix it yourself I think (unless you have it already mixed and all that like Dale does lol

This is truly epic and great to follow! I'm inspired to buy land and go into commercial chilli farming.
