This offer is to first year newbies with less than 500 posts who are dedicated and have the proper means to properly germinate and grow to maturity the chinense variety of hot peppers. By means, I mean, I will not send seeds to Minnesota if you cannot start seeds indoors by Feb 1st or sooner. Proper lighting and heat requirements are a must. You will need to indicate how many plants you are capable of growing and what your growing conditions are. The seeds that you will receive are unidentified. But,  They originated from a premier grower from this forum. I will devouge who that grower is at a later time. I guarantee you will not be disappointed when you find out. The seeds will arrive to you in numbered packets. This is how you will identify the plants until they have matured and produced identifiable pods at which point you  will post here your findings.

 

I am looking for 5 growers and will make selections based on what they have gleaned from this forum in the past year. I have no predetermined time frame to make my selections and may not do so til the beginning of 2017. Or maybe next week.

 

Anyone who meets the above requirements and would like to be considered reply here or pm me.

This sounds really cool. I'd love to be a Guinea pig.

I have a heat mat for germination and currently have an 8 bulb 2'x4' T5 fixture. I started late this year (early March) and will start my 2017 grow in mid-January. I should be able to grow out 15-20 plants in 5-10 gal bags.

Let me know if you need anything else, it would be an honor to participate in something like this.

BRB, making new account.










Ok, not really. Great idea!

Hey, I would be interested in your offer. This year was my first year growing peppers, however I acquired all this years plants as seedlings from various nurseries locally. But next year I do plan on starting from seed. I can post pics once I figure out how.

Thanks,

Joe

This year was my first grow and I'd call it a success. Mid March 2016 I started about 24 plants (from seeds generously donated by the THP community) under six t12 bulbs with a heat mat. I had great germination using papertowel method on heatmat. I kept about 8 plants in 5-6 gallon pickle buckets in a custom soil mix feeding FoliagePro and TomatoTone. I've got about 5 gallons of frozen pepper in my freezer now. BahaGoats, ChocHab, JHC, RedSavina, and a Mystery Thai like plant. I will try my hand at making smoked powder and various sauces, jerk chicken, etc this fall-winter. I will also try out overwintering 3 plants.

 

I realized that I probably will grow more baccatums and stick in the SB/Hab heat level range. maybe toss in JPGS or Peach Bhut. I am also going to try my hand at a couple of C. Pubescens courtesy of Dale TGCM. Aji Limo and Aji Amarrillo will definely make my list after reading Dale's Peruvian FLog. I hope to grow out 10-20 plants total next year.

 

Its been a great year and I look forward to January as I'll be starting earlier and probably starting a glog now that i'm getting a smartphone. Thank you for the offer but I fear I have neither the room for a MYSTERY GROW nor the STOMACH for potential Super Chinense silliness.

 

thanks for the offer though

I would suggest you start asking questions and dive into the vast amount of  threads on the forum and get yourself up to speed intellectually. Tons of info on soils, lighting, nutrients, containers pests and plagues and what have you. I am offering this to newbies but I am insisting they show a certain amount of effort to assure a successful grow.

I have received what I consider to be, 4 serious requests to participate. I will accept 2 more  before closing this out. 

 

The goal will be to post updates of the grow from germination to pod review,  and for you to at some point make an identification of the plants you have grown. Post lots of pics.

 

I will retain a list of the seeds distributed and the numbers associated with them to each participant. Though you will have seeds bearing the same number as another grower, they will not be the same seed as that grower has. Only I will know what particular seed you have from the master packs numbers. You may begin guessing at the IDs at any time. This is helpful at times because some peppers display growth characteristics that do make ID ing them possible. Leaf shapes of some bhuts are a prime example.


OH, just kidding about the pod review.

I may have just signed up and posted my first post, however, I have been lurking and travelling to the deep dark corners of the forum.  I have read through most of the pinned topics as well as followed along with many amazing glogs. 

 

I will start a glog to give an update on my season. It is nowhere near as grand as many here but I will post some pics and you can judge for yourself. Ive included a pic of my first harvest, but I'm finally starting to see color change on my superhots.

Your recent posts speak volumes above your 1st post. Your #5 if you want it.

Thanks Capcom,

 

I would love to take you up on your offer.  My first post was made on my phone and I was getting frustrated at the time with trying to figure out posting of pics. But i've started a photo bucket account and everything is flowing smoother now. I have started a glog and have posted more pics.

Well, that will be kinda the fun of growing them out. You dont know what they will be, but unlike getting seeds from E-BAY, you know they will be killers.

Oh for sure without a doubt.Now these members are lucky or fortunate especially since Judy's available seed stock is depleted at the moment.
