This year I'm growing primarily bhut/naga types.

 

Not much to look at now, but thought I'd kick things off since I'm already starting seeds:

  4. Peach Bhut
  5. Shabu Jolokia
  6. Naga King

First.

 

Nice list.  Do you always start this early?  How many plants total do you plan to grow and do you start them all now or stagger the dates?

A nice stand of seedlings. Looks like you put two seeds per pot, and you've got good germination. How many days between planting and when the picture was taken?

Yeah, lots of bhuts. Don't forget to add Indian Carbon bhuts to that list. Judy has seeds.

I like your list, Charles, nice and focused with a manageable number

of varieties!  How many of each are you planning on?

First.

 

Nice list.  Do you always start this early?  How many plants total do you plan to grow and do you start them all now or stagger the dates?

 

I don't keep very accurate records when it comes to start dates, but I believe last year I started somewhere between Christmas and New Year's Eve.  Ideally I'll have 32 plants... but we'll see.

 

 

A nice stand of seedlings. Looks like you put two seeds per pot, and you've got good germination. How many days between planting and when the picture was taken?

 

Some of the seedlings started in those pots, others were transferred in, kind of an experiment to see how it works out.  Starting them in smaller pots is advisable.  They germinated in the usual times, a few quick ones, but nothing out of the norm.

 

 

Those bhuts are made for walkin! Cool theme Charles! I look forward to watching those #5,8,10,14

Good luck, Mike

 

Haha, yeah.  I'm looking forward to the Shabu.  A few of the others are new to me this year too.

 

 

I like big bhuts and I can not lie.....

 

:dance:

 

 

Yeah, lots of bhuts. Don't forget to add Indian Carbon bhuts to that list. Judy has seeds.

I grew carbon bhuts a couple years ago and had some pods sent to me this year... if only that one phenotype I really like would grow true...

Charles you're off to a good start, are seedlings from  your F2's 3's ..etc or just starting from a new batch ?

In any case you're way ahead of my start...have fun raising those babies......they'll grow like weeds......Plants

It'll vary, I'm planning on having 32 plants, but I'm sure I'll have more than that and won't have the heart to throw them away.

 

 

That's a spooky list Charles.  Good luck man,  tho I know you don't need it!

 

Thanks, I just try to stay out of their way ;) .

 

 

Excellent choices Charles...

 

Thank you sir :cool: .

Oh nice, thanks for the offer, but I'll stick to this for 2014.  Maybe we can trade some pods later on if you're growing those out too.

 

 

Got some heat started there Charles!

 

Good luck this year with your grow.

 

Thanks!

Oh yeah, I have a few Shabu seedlings and the Peach Scorpion, they both germinated pretty fast.

 

 

have a wonderfulll bhut year for you my friend :dance:  :dance:  :dance:

 

Thank you!

Ha, yeah.  Some of them are new to me, others I've been growing for at least one season.  I think of this list, I've been growing the Naga Morich and the Yellow Bhut the longest.

Amazing list Charles! I like the theme!

Focusing on few beloved varieties it's hard but well worth imho

I'll try to mail you a couple Mem Jolokia seeds (i've got 7-8 this week) if i'm not too late, so you can carry on a Frontal Agritech nostalgia season :D

Fatalii + Lotah... are you trying to re-create a Bhut from scratch? :)

 

Best of luck!

Hi Charles,

   Nice list you have going for 2014! I see we have a little overlap... I have Guwahati Bhut planted that I got from cmpman, and the Lotah Bih seeds I got from you have sprouted already. Good luck with your grow!

Excellent.  My lota bih germinated very fast too.

Thanks!  I'm curious to see if your Naga Suomi comes out true or crossed (the pod I sent you was open pollinated)... either way, I'm sure it will be a good one!
