Hey I was looking at your overwintered Aji and I was wondering if I did the right thing pruning my 3 plants severely.

Oh you sure did the right thing. Depending on how much light you have, the smaller you trim your plants, the better it will be. 

 

The issue I have is that my Aji Amarillo has no source of artificial lighting, and the sun I get throughout the day is not enough even though I am South-West facing window. Also, the Aji Amarillo is known to be very very tall plants, so maybe it is normal that they get so high.

 

IMO, the only reason you want to overwinter is get a real big head start for plant out, especially in Quebec :)

Feb 3rd: Day 35

 

Hey a little pic to see evolution. I think I will try an organic liquid hydroponics fert to water my plants as I've only put some compost for nutes into my mix.

I was away for a week at my parents-in-law so I didn't give much love to my peppers.

 

Yesterday I went to the hydroponics store to grab some nutes for my babies. I got vegetative growth nutes and humic acid. I opted for Quebec sourced ferts, they said they were organic but I have my doubts with the methol scenting Ocean grow... oh well

Day 40

 

I fertilized the peppers. It seems like they liked the extra nitrogen. Some have gotten a little greener after the ferts.

Wow is it me or just 5 days after ferts the difference is huge ? I know I am repeating myself but, Pink Tigers are amazing, they are way darker than what I was expecting and seems to grow very compact. (ça se dit ça ? haha)

It might only be the angle of the shot hehe, but seriously you are right, plus the color of the leaves is much better.

What I don't know yet is how frequently will I fertilize them... each watering seems to be a lot given I water them about once a week...

 

Grow very compact....Je sais pas si à proprement parler ça se dit, mais je suis pas mal sur que le peu de gens qui lisent mon log ont compris   :dance:

Your grow log seems understandable to me, buddy!

 

Your starts look great.  Nutin' like a little nitrogen to

kick things into overdrive!   Right before transplant to

2-liter pots, the beverage cups were taking 3oz. of

half-strength fish fert/Cal-Mag every 2 or 3 days, and

the plants were growing like crazy.

Hi,

 

This is a real quick video of a few hours of growing. This is 720p, shot every 2 min.

Why wasnt the light on? interfers with the image quality?

 

Awesome sun moving effect though...

Actually, the lights were on at the beginning of my timelapse. When I woke up I turned the lights off before leaving for work.

 

When the lights are on, there is absolutely no movement, thats why I removed it from the video. Next time, I will raise the light fixture to have better light penetration in the room.

Day 54: Foliar feed

 

Hey guys, my peppers were beginning to wilt slightly so I fed them plain water from the top and tried foliar feeding with my ocean grow. 5ml for a liter. Lets see how it turns out.

 

Dark green is becoming more dominant; we've had a few clear days here in Montreal for the past week.

I am beginning to draft some sketches of my garden next summer, I might include some tobacco for fun and would really like to try replacing decorative vines for hops. One of my colleagues from university has some well established Cascade, Nugget and Brewer's Gold hop plants and will provide me with rhizomes next spring.

 

Can't wait!

Nice with the plans for growing hops!

 

Just made a deal with local homebrewers, who had some established hop plants. For a bottle of beer, they'll trade me some clones of their best varieties!

Day 65: E nomine Patris et Filii et Spiritus Sancti

 

photo_zpsladkmijf.jpg

 

Amen.

 

I thought it would be easier this year since I had good results topping last year. But it killed me again. I was lacking space under the lights, I figured it would give me an additional 2 weeks to figure things out in terms of space before it starts bushing out.

 

Also started my jiffys: 6 tobaccos, 8 ground cherries, 2 tomatillos, 6 eggplants. All in jiffy pellets, 3 seeds per pellet

 

Anyone could tell me the frequency to change the T5 fluo lights..? I have had mine for a year now, growing about 12 hours a day for 7-8 months..

 

Thanks!

I plugged in my Gopro again under nightlapse with a shot every 30 min. Gonna leave it there for a week and over, to see the peppers regrow their leaves.

Have you ever had the battery die while it was taking pics? Or do you have the charger plugged in the whole time? Not very familiar w/ gopros and timelapses...

I actually have to plug it during the whole thing, otherwise it dies off after 2 hours or so... it wouldn't be a great timelapse this way hehe

Day 73: Rebirth
 
I did a new timelapse. Unfortunately I have a few shots of dark and camera moved a little during timelapse since I was too cheap to buy "The Frame" for my GoPro cam. Anywho there it is!

Here is this year's plan for my community garden. My friend and I each have a 20'x20' plot. We plan on doing small raised beds with fabric and wooden pickets.

Finally, I am evolving towards my beer brewing project. I have gathered all my pieces to build my 40qt mash tun for all grain brewing.
