Haven't posted in a while, Wanted to post some recent picture updates! Thank you sooo much to everyone who donated seeds to me, I really do appreciate it, and believe me I will continue to grow for many years with your plants! The 7 pots especially, I absolutely LOVE the beautiful Orange color and the smoky, almost fruity heat from the 7 pot I grew! I hate to say it, but I can barely remember who all sent me seeds, so here is a shout out to all of you, and please let me know if you recognize any of the pods as one of your plants so I can send you a proper thank you card! Just started some Adenium Obesum's, cant wait for them to get some size over the next few years, and am reallllllly looking forward to the next several harvests off these plants! I got rid of the cherry tomatoes, as well as the lettuce, I found I love the flavor of both, but the size requirements are simply too much for my current housing situation... Cant wait to get a proper yard! Pictures below!
7 pot's first pod!
After harvesting, getting ready to harvest seeds and dehydrate for some high heat chilli powder!
First cut, some beautiful colors inside!
Seeds harvested, I put them in a wrapped up paper towel to soak out the moisture under the heat of the grow light for a few days, then when they were dry enough to crack when folded, put them in a fresh paper towel and stored in a small ziplock for future use. Sound about right, or does anyone have a better method? Any advice would greatly help!
Into the dehydrator for preservation/powdering! Will upload powder pictures when I have enough to speak of!
Also, does anyone else have any trouble getting flowers to set fruit in a hydro system? I need to get a better rez, the one I am currently using is letting in too much light, causing algae growth, not to mention the dang air pump just died, made the rookie mistake of putting it lower than the water level and it got wet... I think the combination of these might be severely hindering the system's potential, but I will fix it as I can afford... thoughts anyone? fyi, I have been using maxibloom, ppm around 700-800, and a 6.2 PH, watered twice a day for 15 minutes apeice in a 30/70 mix of perlite/coco coir, 16/8 light/dark cycles.
