Glad to see the "old gal" putting on some new growth, I still can't get over the age of the OW and she's still going. You're definitely doing something right ;)

I am amazed at your 6 year old overwinter - it is a beast and quite impressive. Have you set aside a college fund for it yet?

Lol that CARDI looks like you have stuck fake leaves on a piece of wood! Seriously though good luck this season.

I've never felt as nervous about the fate of a single plant, only two seed from my crossing has produced one plant, which cannot be found anywhere else in the world.

Thanks Stetto! This plant is older than 2 of my kids so has a special place in my grow each year.

Thanks very much for all the nice comments, appreciate you stopping by guys!  
 
Time for a quick update, all ticking along nicely here I am pleased to report.
 
Changing of the guard in the prop this week as my rank and file chinense are potted up to 9cm pots and I'm due to sow my baccas and annuums tonight.  I've binned all my spares at this stage for the first time too, I simply don't have the room and I've rarely lost a plant so it's survival of the fittest from hereon in!  
d4ec4bcd365ad180f2524e17feff759e.jpg
 
Tray of Aji Bodysnatcher F3 (Aji White Fantasy x Lemon Drop), starting to see some slight variations in the plant form and leaf shape now, all coming on well and on target for early poddage.

Various early starts...
46612f9f0bc7215d2ed871eccd2c923d.jpg
 
Veteran TS CARDI really coming alive now, lots of strong main branches shooting out in all directions and he's even starting to gamely set buds... Steady on old boy!

b306aca2eb26fbc497e0691395e1b3e6.jpg
 
I've moved the prop out from under the growlight garden now as all the space needed for the plants.  I can get three of these long Ikea trays laden with 9cm pots under the light (12 each maximum, total capacity 36 at a push).  I tend to start to move the bigger plants onto windowsills when space gets too tight.

Tonight into the prop will be... 
 
-- Annuum --
Beaver Dam
Thunder Mountain Longhorn
Santa Fe Grande
Ring of Fire (several plants for giveaways)
 
-- Baccatum --
Aji Fantasy
Aji White Fantasy
Aji Cristal
Lemon Drop
Nepalese Bell
 
-- Chinense--
Mystery pick from my seed box to replace Embassy Naga (no-show) TBC!

Plants are looking great Dennis.  You and John with those printed plant markers, so nice.  Mine are barely legible even by me, probably not legible by anyone else.

Thanks Justin!  I've got quite a few in this latest batch from you, good germ rates and so far so good thanks!  I just use printed labels and standard plant markers, nothing fancy!  Think we are all a bit OCD when it comes to organising our plants!  Chilli growing is somewhere between stamp collecting and knife throwing on the scale, with a little bit of both mixed in!

 

+1 on #33! well said ;)

 

Cheers Scott!

Thanks Rick, this plant has been trained into a really great growth habit over the years... it shoots out loads of new main branches as laterals, here it is fully loaded a couple of years back!

Hoping year 6 is just as good!

That TS Cardi fully loaded is a sight to behold Dennis. Awesome looking kids as well. Great work in keeping him going buddy.
