Hey guys, recently i started up a DWC set up for the Carolina reaper, atm i have 2 running in the DWC and 1 in soil, and i also have a ghost pepper growing in the back and seeing how she goes :) Im pretty new to the hydro systems so any help would be great, so far its been going well i think this is the 3rd week running, im using a chilli nutrient and setting the ph levels correctly and thats about it!

Decided to add another lil guy to the dwc, ive just had him in a mini green house for a few weeks and he looks pretty healthy and has a few leaves for a small plant its a reaper also :)

One of the reapers seems to have some strange spots on the leaves..not concerned atm because it still looks really alive and healthy

A ghost pepper plant i bought he was a bit bigger but due to the over head light somehow falling on it and i had to trim it down due to burning it :/ its got a split down the main stalk but seems to not die or stop growing? strange haha hes been feeding of the same nutrient also as these others, and im seeing tiny flower shoots happening so im pretty excited

Tent upgrade! huge tent compared to the mini one :P

Then decided to get a mini heater and up the themp a bit, but i accidentally went ham with the temperature and left it on way too long and hot and then the plants became like this :/ (the current temp shown was AFTER i turned the heater off and was monitoring the temp) before it was probably over 40 degrees :/ silly mistake... i hope they recover, they are slowly recovering :(

super bushy, ive been topping up the resviours very often now, and i cant wait to see a reaper pod for the first time

 

dont worry about the floppy looking plants they are in the lights off cycle atm haha


what do you guys think? should i give the bottoms a bit of a trim up so the top grows out like a nice bushy tree? because atm they are SUPER jungle spec so any tips would be great :)

Looking great so far. Funny how quickly things go from a simple setup to lights, a tent and a full on hydro system huh!?

almost a month in and they are looking pretty good, bit of burn on a few leaves and some pest marks but so far so good, ive replaced a few plants also, been feeding them with power grow and water and it seems to be doing well :)

all the plants recovered really well! very green and healthy looking, some are growing so huge and are towering over the smaller ones, not sure if i should prune them a bit or just leave them any ideas?

 

I got a pod of each big plant the trinidad scorp and moruga scorp, now theres alot more growing one one of them which is cool, havent had any pods grow until a few weeks ago and the heat is INSANE from the scorpions.

Wow man! Just wow, plants are looking awesome, loving your setups, especially the outdoor one since i m not into hydro.
But your plants seem to have a perfect balance soil/water/nutes.
Great job and keep posting pics, please!
