I love it! "I picked up a hab...did a bit of research..." and now you are showin a HUGELY diverse list! You definitely have a great GLog, and I am happy I stopped in. I think that sweet and savory pack is pretty genius, you are definitely coverin a ton of ground and will have a great garden come plant out. What are your plans for plant out? Are they getting put into containers or in the ground, and when are you doin it?
Anyways, I will keep check'n in, as long as you keep updatin!
The plan is...
Germinate as many as I can,
then move them from Jiffy's to Solo cups. Once the get that 2nd or 3rd set of leaves, I'll start acclimating them to the greenhouse during the day but get some bonus light at night inside. I am running them ~18/6 of light. When they get about 4-5 sets of leaves the get potted up in to 1gal's and then to Deuces.
I have a load of Deuces (2gal buckets) left over from when I was a painter. They only ever had Water-based latex paint in them.
So from left to right I have:
Hot Sauce Solo cup - For organized PreSoaking
Standard Jiffy - Seedling Stage
Solo Cup - till about ~4" tall
1 Gal. pot untill about ~1' tall
2 Gal. Probably wont out grow this until next spring
And last but not in the Pic 5 Gal. Homer Buckets
As for Ferts, Im starting to lean toward Organic. I'm a big fan of Pepper-Guru, he grows TREES on Organic Tea's and such.
I have started using a 5gal. Bucket, that I brew up some oxygenated water with a hint of Fish emulation.
The cool thing about a wood frame Greenhouse that cost 100$,
You can Modify it any way you please! I saw the temp get to 108* in some spots the other day so I realized that I will need some cirulation in there if anything is going to survive! And so... I added a Fan and put it on a timer.
Don't worry, your not
the Blades are fine that's just how the pic turned out while the fan was on. I will be mounting it more permanently soon.
This was just a quick fix to keep the Temps down AND IT WORKED! Max high is now 95* ish
Here are some pics of the Purple Bhut, Black Pearl, Cayenne, and more:
The Purple Bhut is growing out of its awesome purple leaves
Any one know when a Black Pearl starts turning Black? This thing was just a seedling a month ago and now it seems to grow a new set of leaves every 2 days or so.
The Cayenne is now getting the same treatment the Pearl got and seems to be responding well!
Freaking Jack and the bean stock with our Mammoth Sunflower
