My first proper grow log! I start by soaking seeds in some weak tea for about 6-8 hours, then I plant them into a heated propagator directly in compost. Most other years I have used Coir pellets, but giving this method a go this year due to the sheer number of seeds I am starting.
List of peppers I am growing this year:
Planted on 10th January:
Habanero: The Monster
Yellow 7Pot Brain Strain
White Bhut Jolokia
Zimbabwean Birds Eye
Caramel Bhut Jolokia
Chocolate Bhut Jolokia
Planted on 11 January:
some more Zimbabwean Birds Eye
Numex Big Jim (seeds from 2012)
Katie Naga (seeds from 2014)
Banana Pepper (seeds from 2004)
a few others I will update with tonight when I get home, I can't remember
With the second batch of seeds, I was planting more of the Zim Birds Eye due to my brother placing an "order" with me for 10kg of these peppers! I didn't want to waste the space in the second heated propagator so I decided to try planting some of my older seeds, just to see if they would pop!
Here are some photos of my first lot of seeds in the propagator (new for this season, I got a variable adjusted heated propagator, which can get up to 28 celsius):
