I stopped the misting exercise. There is no new development of leaf burn. I gotta go with water beads magnifying and burning from the lights.

 

 

I knew you guys were on pins and needles to know.

 

BTW, I really hate having to cull a living plant, but all my PaulG's are now resting solo in their cups. (get it? SOLO? CUP? HA, I kill me!!!).

Glad to hear the leaf issues seem to have stopped - good news.

 

You are the Aji man this year, buddy!

It makes me happy to know the circle/misting worked for you. ;)

With the success of the aji amarillos and the moruga scorpions in this frigid, desolate environment, and with the birth of my first lemon drop son, I think it's time to augment the grow list for the upcoming outdoor season.

 

I'm not going whole hog this year, not because I fear being overwhelmed but fear of losing track this first time out with so many different peppers at once. If I do well this season I may expand next year. There will still be, for me anyway, a LOT of different varieties. They will include

 

 

From Flo mpicante:

Madballz

Ramirez Stinger

Reaper

 

From Matt Malarky:

P. Dreadie S.S.

Rocoto Rojo (via Thegreenchilemonster?)

Aji Rojo

Rocoto Amarillo

 

From Hippy Seed (who have credit for some of my aji amarillos already growing in the studio):

Jalapeno Tormenta

"Bert the Chilli" --I was intrigued by this, Neil & Charlotte found it floating down the Sydney Nile, named it Bert. Ya can't not plant a Bert.

 

From Trade Winds Fruit:

Aji Lemon Drop (for obvious reasons)

Farmers Jalapeno (never in my life! Gotta try one)

Yolo Wonder (SWMBO would kill me if she didn't get her obligatory row of bells)

 

That's almost none compared to what a lot of you guys/gals are planting, but it's a daunting number to me....this year. I'm trying to talk Her into a greenhouse, if that happens I will have an extended season in the Tundra.

 

Still researching (that means talking to locals) the salability of the exotics from a stand or to a local store. I found a kiosk at the grocery, hidden in the produce section, with dried chipotles, birds eye, "banana" and even moruga scorpion and Carolina reaper pods, but nothing fresh in exotics beyond habaneros, which were yellow-orange and the produce guy said "that's what color habaneros are"...So we'll see. 

 

 

 


I know, I know, I didn't mention PaulG...But hey, by now I think I told EVERYONE who mentored those aji amarillos outta the peat... :party:

Congrats on the GrowDown baby!

 

Don't worry, each year you WILL get better; and of course, like the rest of us, plant WAY more than you need. Normal!

 

Tell the wife: green house, green house. Gotta have a green house. Sure fire way to get her hooked is to grow stuff she likes....ask me how I know ;)

Oh definitely! I found this site on a search for viable aji amarillo and tips on groing peppers "not from here."

The wife is a HUGE salad pimp, loves exotic sweets, which obviously around here come out of jars.

I just love experimenting and expanding my pepper palate. Milds work really good for that!

If you have the room for the extra grow, PM me and I'll send some seeds. You still have plenty of time to get them going

It's interesting to me that growth has slowed way down since I closed the heat vent in the grow room. 68 degrees has them all virtually in a "stasis", very little development. Before, when the temp was closer to 80 the little devils scared the tar out of me thinking I'd need to build a house for them.

 

So I know how to slow them down. That may well come in handy. :party:
