In this episode...
2013 is here, and a new season is upon us.
This season I got a good head start on the summer outdoor season. I've started a few new strains for 2013 as well as carrying over a few from 2012.
Currently the kids are residing in my closet, within a makeshift grow room.
All are in Airpots varying in size from 1/2 liter for the new sprouts, to 1.5 gallon for the 2012 survivors.
Lighting is a dual bulb t8 fixture running 6500k lamps.
My growing medium is Promix Bx.
Here's the lineup for 2013:
2012 survivors in closet grow area:
7 Pot Douglah
7 Pot Red Brain Strain
Yellow Bhut Jolokia (thanks Taxing)
Giant Bhut Jolokia
Butch T Trinidad Scorpion #2
Butch T Trinidad Scorpion #3
Yellow Devils Tongue
Bedroom Desklamp Bonchi:

All peppers will receive nutrients via General Hydroponics General Organics series.
I used these nutes in 2012 with great results, so I'm sticking with what has worked for me...
Having recently moved, my summer growing space has been reduced by half compared to what I had in 2012.
None the less, I'm planning on moving all peppers outside once summer rolls around so they can enjoy the wonderful Colorado sun..
At this point, the plan is to move them into root pruning pouches approximately 5-7 gallons in size.
We'll see how that all goes...
2012 was a great learning experience, can't wait to see what 2013 throws at me...
Thanks for stopping by!
Until the next update.....
