Welcome to the KAOS Glog 2017
I wasn’t going to do one this year, but thought what the hell. Some of my intrepid journey may be of interest to someone or at the very least a bit of entertainment for the Northern Hemisphere Chilliheads.
Since I’m playing a bit of catchup (started in April really) here is a quick summary of proceeding through to today.
NZ Season 2016 was dismal to say the least with a very short cold summer and it didn’t help starting late either.
Apologies for the image heavy first post
Some of 2016’s last pods
I decided 2017 was going to be a different and this would be a challenge against the winter elements.
Bring on the indoor grow brigade – 900mm x 400mm grow cabinet with grow LED
Now unfortunately being the gadget addict that I am I had to start experimenting with lights. The next photo is a humble cayenne that became the lab rat (aka Tarbal) over the next couple of months.
Remember Tarbal for later …
Once I’d proven (to myself anyway) that the LED thing actually worked I decided to soldier on with some actual proper peppers
A selection of Superhots – Ghost/Choc Bhut/Reaper…etc
Back to Tarbal now and roll on some 53 days from previous photo
My grow process is nothing new.
KNO3 for 24hrs
Coffee filter in Jiffy Bag until sprouting – Heatpad and mini greenhouse
Into Rockwool with a dab of soil - Heatpad and mini greenhouse
Wait until liftoff and into pots when first set of leaves are established
This was the start of the true growing period – Upgraded to 1.2m x 1.2m tent
Sideline to the grow this year is the Amarillo Growdown and here are some progress shots
Now the rest of the family as of today
