Updated germination data:

Variety................................cells w/ sprouts...............germ rate

Scorpion pod 1.........................4...............................10/12  84%: seeds from three pods, one pod zero hooks - speaks to sowing variety.

Scorpion pod 2.........................2...............................2/9  22%  All three pods 5th generation my seed.

Scorpion pod 3.........................1...............................3/6   50%

Aji Amarillo...............................2................................6/12  50%

Aji Lemon Drop........................3................................9/9  100%

PDN x Bonda F5......................2................................4/18  22%%: ouch, hope Tristen doing better - all the marbles riding on this one.

Fatali........................................3................................6/12  50%

MoA Bonnett...........................4.................................11/12  92%

JA Red Habanero CPI.............2.................................4/12  33%: again, good to plant more than one variety. my seed from two pods:

JA Red Habanero pod 1.........2..................................6/6  100%

JA Red Habanero pod 2.........0..................................0/6    0%

Rocoto....................................3..................................9/9  100%

Manzano.................................3.................................6/9  66% - one manzano accidentally terminated - 1/25

BOC........................................2.................................3/9  33%

Aji Limo, peruvian seed..........0..................................0/9  0%

Cabe Gendot..........................0..................................0/9  0%

The most dismal results since I started using the heating mat.  I don't know what the 

is, maybe the cold nights in the garage.  51/162 total germination rate is about 31%.

This is 26 plants if all survive to plant out.  Going to try to start some of
the Chocolate Habanero from RF and BOC from Jason - tonight into the soak.
 
edit 1/15 - another Scorpion hook today
edit 1/17 - one BOC hook today.  Some seeds have germinated in the Jiffy Pellets

after transplanting.  After a count this morning the results updated in the 

chart above.  60/162 = 37% 17 days after sowing.  Later same day, another

BOC hook has emerged 61/162...

 

edit 1/18 - one more MoA today... 62/162
 
edit 1/19 - one Chili Pepper Institute Caribbean Red Habanero finally

came out...63/162 = 39% - 29 seedlings underway.


 edit 1/21 - a few more hooks have emerged in transplanted Jiffy Pellets, many 

of which have now germinated 3/3 seeds...Grand total 73/162 = 45% 

after 3 weeks since sowing.


 edit 1/23 - first hook out of the second round - one BOC 2013 from GaGrowhead.
 
edit 1/26 - Aside from the second BOC 2013 to emerge yesterday, there were four

new hooks this morning: BOC 2013; F5 PDN x Bonda :party: ; Caribbean Red

Habanero CPI; Scorpion 5th gen.  79/162 = 49%

 

 IMG_4748.JPG

Swapped a 2x4 T5HO light for a 4 x 4
so i could have a double row of plants:

IMG_4749.JPG

 

As of now, have these plants going forward  :pray: to plantout.

In four or five months   :rolleyes:

BOC - 5

Scorpion - 6

Fatali - 3

Rocoto - 3

Manzano - 2

Aji Amarillo - 2

Aji Lemon Drop - 3

F5 PDN x Bonda - 2

Red Habanero - 4

MoA bonnet - 4

Well the Winters here are kinda like the Spring I'm used to back in the Netherlands, so I'm trying to wrap my head around it being actually Winter at the moment. The orange trees are having a lot of new growth and even small buds, but most trees that lose their leaves are still dormant. I guess Spring starts when the temps go up again, which is in about a month! It's mostly 13-16 C day time and 4-8 night time, although I had to move some old cayennes inside a few nights. We caught some northern winds and it was even freezing at night. Pretty nice climate for pepper growing, although I'm anxious for high summer, when temps can reach 40 C and above. 

 

Setup is looking good!  Thanks  

Sounds like a pretty nice pepper growing environment -

Good luck this season!

Indeed, John, they were one of my best performers

germination-wise this season.  Thanks, friend!  I have 

a picture to post on the LOTG thread...

Thanks, Rick - always, my friend!

 

BTW, to answer your question I'll scoop a couple of inches of soil out

of my containers and replace and amend the remainder  it with something

else in a month or so.  I have chosen the most resistant plants for seed

stock, and injected some new genes into the grow list.  Will try to minimize

contact between plants during indoor part of the grow.  Hopefully that

will help to minimize the BLS this Spring.  Plus, I'll be more vigilant   :eh:

 

We're pulling for ya to get a handle on the BLS issue this year. Keeping the individual plants separated sounds like a good idea. Taking care not to splash water from one to the other does too. Will you bottom-water only then? Put each pot is in its own cup so water isn't shared between plants when bottom-watering?

That's how I usually do it, Rick.  Very little water up top.  

The top 3/4" of the soil in the beverage cups is dry when

potting up time comes.  I think using the resistant varieties 

as good a strategy as any. I also bottom water them in the

2-liter pots.

 

Thanks for the positive vibe, bro!

Chocolate Habanero 2013 from the second set of seeds started 1/15.  

 

Also, on 1/28 another Red Habanero CPI, and 

today another Scorpion 5th generation.  81/162 = 50%.

 

edit 1/30 - One more BOC 2013 hook today. 15 days since sowing.  Remaining

Jiffy Pellets tossed out except for the F2 and Choc Hab seeds started on

1/15; they can go another two weeks just for fun, but not sure if I'll bother.

I have to give away 7 plants as it is.  Good problem to have!

 

edit 2/2 - F2 and Choc Hab seeds tossed today, no room anyway, thankfully!

A few more sprouts in the transplanted Jiffy Pellets - 5 Scorpion and one

Caribbean Red Habanero.  Chart updated above  86/162 = 53% - 1 month total.

Nice to see some more hooks, Paul. Can't wait to see wait see them little plants. The BOC should do well with your growing skills. Can't wait for that one as well.


Good luck! Here's to more hooks!

Thanks, Charles.  The germ rates haven't been great, but

I have enough starts to populate my backyard grow space.

I'm about done germinating, Rick.  Any plugs unsprouted

by the 31st will get the heave-ho.  50% is the worst germ

record I've had since starting to use the heat mat.

I think we are about done, Giancarlo; 4 weeks is long

enough.  We're outta here   :seeya:

 

I have enough plants for this part of the grow.  In fact,

will have to give several away, so not concerned at

this point.  I'm glad I planted lots of seeds and had some

extra Jiffy Pellets going or I might not have had enough

this time around.

Updated germination record.
 
It has been one month since seed sowing,

and three weeks since the first hook emerged.  

The last I transplanted emerged yesterday, 1/31.  

50% of the hooks emerged from 1/9-1/11, then

the other 50% dribbled in over the next 19 days.

 Right now, I have 38 plants going forward to 

potting up.  The first to emerge are about ready

for a 2-liter pot.  

 

Shooting the length of the grow shelf from the

most recent seedlings:

IMG_4756.JPG

 

Beginning at the 3-week old Aji Amarillo:

IMG_4757.JPG

IMG_4758.JPG

IMG_4759.JPG

IMG_4760.JPG

 

And ending with the one-day old Scorpion:

IMG_4761.JPG

 

In a week or two I'll give away a few here

and there so I can get down to 32 for plant

out.

 

Have started watering with a 1/4 strength AK Fish

Fertilizer and Cal-Mag mix.  Will slowly increase the

strength of the Fish Fert over the next few mixings.

Plants with 4 true leaves get the fertilizer.  Regular

water for the others for now.  Bottom watering and

removing the water sleeve the next morning to air

prune the roots trying to grow out the drain holes in

the planter cups.
