Glad I caught this.

Great list. Some variety. Wishing you the best of luck.


That's the cool thing about this forum. Get to follow glogs all year long.


Cheers! Glad you could stop by, been following your glog these past months ;)

Jay's Peach Ghost Scorpion has decided to wake up! Obviously not home free yet, still needs to germ successfully... but hooray anyway!
 
Also more germ action going on, the running total is:
3x Aji Amarillo (100%)
1x carolina Reaper
1x Choc 7 Pot
2x Purple Naga Viper (100%)
2x Bahamian Goat Pepper* (100%)
2x Red Bhut Jolokia (100%)
 
   *  One is possibly Scotch Bonnet, but which one???
 
Now that the mix ups have started to germinate, I'll give them a few days and see if there's any disparities that will lead to a positive I.D.
 
Also suffered my first casualty, lost a Scotch Bonnet* seed to a fungus-mould thing, it had white hair-fluff growing on it. It went to seed-heaven, and I replaced the paper towel in the incubator so as to not spread it to the rest of my seeds. Luckily, D3monic had me covered with some Papa Dreadie's that I'm looking forward to!
 
 
Pics soon?????????
 
 
Oh yeah, :woohoo:  See ya later!

So weird on timing. I had some Jay's Peaches going also, but alas no action at all.

 

Well done TBG. More pics man.

Mine took 17 days, so if you've still got yours sitting there, you may yet be in luck.


The Bahamian Goats are very interesting :

333uexpv.3ip.jpeg

The two are only a day's age apart, and the purple one has been purple for a couple of days, so I'm confident that they're different.
So one MoA, one Goat. But which is which? I'm gonna do some investigating and hopefully find out!

Cheers! Indeed exciting!

No real progress on the mix-up I.Ding, been looking at glogs from all over, but there's no useful pics :(

Oh well, when they pod, I'll know ;)

Okay, its time for some more pics!

Here's all the seedlings in Jiffy's so far, all at different stages of maturity.

oqtuf45g.qhl.jpg
 
A2/A3 - Aji Amarillo
1 -  Carolina Reaper
2 - Choc 7 Pot (very small for some reason)
3 - Purple Naga Viper
4 - Bahamian Goat (one of 'em is anyway)
5 - Bhut Jolokia Red
6 - MoA Scotch Bonnet (or B.G)
 
They're all coming along nicely, no hiccups yet!
 
Also got a few more on the way, plus those in the incubator

hsl4yxei.qea.jpg
 
I've also sown some Trinidad Moruga Scorpion, (and some Aji Painapple for D3)
 
The two plants in cups:

bl0yvzrq.t2t.jpg
 
Amarillo on right, Ebony Fire on left.
 
Noticed something strange with the Ebony Fire...

53afbjxv.skt.jpg
 
The leaves seem to have fused... not sure whether to be stoked or concerned.
EDIT: It also had a triple cotyl, forgot to mention it so far! :oops:
If it is a fatal flaw, it will be sad to see it go, but my grow would be happier for the freed up space!
 
 
I've been looking at my options in the coming months, for when I inevitably cull my grow (hopefully I don't have to cull any entire varieties).
I have two friends who are into chillies, and will probably be able to offload quite a few plants onto them. I also have a few more friends and family who I think I can talk into taking a few plants.
If that doesn't do it, I'll advertise around town that I'm giving away plants, and hopefully some interested people come knocking!
The only problem is that, until mid-august, folks will need the facilities to grow indoors if they want to, because its too damn cold around here! Even after mid-august folks will need a greenhouse until mid-september... but hey, that ain't for a while yet!
 
 
Its been good to have you stop by, I think I've said it before, but it really brightens my day to know that people are actually following my glog! Keep the feedback rolling, I wouldn't be anywhere if it weren't for the advice, tips, tricks and help from everyone on this forum!
 
What a great place to be! :party:
 
 
That's all for now, thanks for the good vibes!
 
 
                                         -  TBG.

Thanks!

 

That little purple guy is becoming very interesting very quickly...

izrmnxh4.25j.jpg
 
The Goat/Bonnet plot thickens!
It appears that the seedling is developing purple foliage!
I really doubt that it's a labeling issue, so I think that it may be a cross. I got it in the seed train knowing that it was probably open-poll, so I'm more excited than disappointed.  After all. who doesn't love a mysterious cross?
 
But fortunately, I kept track of who added which of the seeds to the train that I took, so I know who to talk to. They may be able to shed some light on what exactly I have growing here!
 
 
Either way, this grow is getting quite more interesting than I envisioned - who knows what other crosses are hiding amongst the ranks of seedlings???
 
 
Also had Scotch Brain and White Fatalii germinate today, both the Fatalii's germinated in 9 days, giving that variety the quickest average so far! (Aji Amarillo was also 9 days, but had 7,9&11 so Fatalii is more consistent and gets the prize)
 
No more roots yet, but hooks are popping up here and there.
 
I also realised that I haven't yet posted an official grow list, or my proposed one anyway. There was a vague one at the start, but I've got it all figured out now, so here goes:

Hello Again!

 

Quick update with pics!

 

The Unknown seedling (Bahamian Goat/Scotch Bonnet X ???) is definitely purple:

omzgklaq.rzn.jpg

 

All the others are cruising along nicely

rbyvbggg.ixj.jpg
 

Some are starting on their fist true leaves (Red Bhut here)

ncovtsu5.qm5.jpg
 

I've had a few more germinate, most excitably the Jay's Peach G.S, which germinated yesterday afternoon (pic taken this morning)

1r0qqlsk.nuj.jpg
:woohoo: :onfire: :party:
 
 
I transplanted Amarillo No. 3 the other day, here he is with No. 1 and Ebony Fire:

5lbcfonw.zb0.jpg
 
No. 2 was a tiny bit slower growing than No. 3, and had some growth in its pellet:

dfajqdq1.htn.jpg
 
So I figured that, out of the two of them, it was the one to say good-bye to.
No. 1 is chugging along slowly, which I suppose is a good thing, because if it grows too fast I won't have any where to put it!
I've noticed that there is a much shorter growth habit for the seedlings that spent their whole lives so far in the box, compared to the Amarillos, which sat on a windowsill for a few days. I think that's a good sign....
Not much else to say at the moment, ran out of Jiffy pellets, so i'm not sowing until i get my hands on some more (should happen this week)
Also want to get a small fan to put in the box, I think that should prevent any more unwanted growth (the mould type)
 
 
Happy Weekend to all, and thanks again for hanging around!

Small Update!

An Aji Jobito X BBG7 didn't germ, as well as a Choc 7 pot. Already have a Choc 7 pot seed.ong, so not too concerned about that, but resowed a couple more A.J X BBG7. Also sowed some Cayenne X Bhut, Trinidad Perfume and El Scorponero, and am getting jiffy pellets this afternoon.

Not much else to report - no new germs, roots or transplants (yet)

Stay Tuned for more (hopefully)

Thanks!

Yeah, I've tried to have a wide range for this grow. I want to grow a bit of everything this time around, so I can figure out what I like, and go from there in future years.


Also some news, first Aji Painapple shot a root, so into the Jiffy for it!

Okay, time for an update with pics!

 

First up, the first Aji Amarillo seems to be putting out some lateral growth

qqdlgrjk.jpb.jpg
 
Which seems to bit weird for its age, but I'm no expert.
Here's a blurry pic of it: (taken today)

2gw4p3go.hwq.jpg
 
I've been measuring it a bit to make sure its growing, and it gained 8mm over the last 3 days, so that's a good sign.
 
All the other seedlings are also coming along nicely:
0wmpzirk.otg.jpg
 
 
Reaper is starting to see some leaves:

bsphh0yr.kfm.jpg
 
 
And the "Purple Goat Bonnet" is very purple.

4kc0adp5.ni4.jpg
 
 
No new germs, but here's a photo of the Aji Painapple from the other day:

v33oiyhg.k3w.jpg
 
 
Since then I've had a Scotch Brain shoot as well. Also sown some P.Dreadie's and more CARDI Scorpion's. The current Scorp. seeds don't look too good, so I'm bringing in backup for them.
 
And that's about everything! Thanks again (again) for stopping by, please drop in any comment, questions or concerns!
 
All The Best, TBG. :dance:

Excellent start TBG ! Wonderful germination pics !

I only germinate in soil , so I have to wait for the hooks.

Thanks karoo! Glad to have you stop by!

Yeah, I'm really liking being able to see the seeds before they germinate, so I can tell if they are duds, and when they root I know that it'll only be a matter of days before I see hooks, and then -pop!-

There seems to be something about updating my glog having an effect on the plants, because every time I update, there's a new bout of hooks, roots, etc.
Last night, after posting my last update, I checked on the seeds, only to discover roots from more Painapple's and a Trinidad Moruga Scorpion, as well as a hook from something I can't remember right now. So maybe I should update more often? :rofl:

Hopefully I'll have another germ tonight or tomorrow!

Looks like your season is off to a great start. That Purple Goat Bonnet is an interesting one. I really like the dark purple coloration it is showing so far.

 

I am eager to see how those Purple Naga Vipers turn out for you. That variety is high on my list for next season. Anyway, best of luck with your grow!
