I'd say that's some great progress right there! Plants look to be accelerating, and that Reaper just keeps looking better and better! No issues with drainage of the mix?

 

Keep them plants rolling along! :onfire:

Thanks TBG.

 

Reaper mix drainage is actually getting better every time I water. Might be that the 'fines' have been captured by the root system.

Next problem I can see is that the pot is not going to be big enough (10 ltr) so might just bump it up to a grow bag at some stage.

I'm still around 5 days between waterings so will decide on repotting when she's down to every other day for hydration.

 

Keep on rolling

The weather seems to be improving and progress is slow but steady.

Reaper Mix Progress - I've trimmed some bottom leaves off and had to choose a new photo location (getting too big now)

Reaper Flowering - Stems are very dark and I'm wondering if this is due to lighting

Fat Amarillos with no hint of changing colour any time soon

Same with the angry pod - Choc Bhut ?

The plants are looking good and healthy. Looking forward for the rest of the season and all the colors.

That green pod with the pimple looks like real pepper porn LOL. Would be interesting to see a ripe one hahaha.

Thanks for the update.

Awesome start, Kaos! Everything looks like it's ready to roll into summer

firing on all cylinders.  The Aji Amarillos seem to take forever to ripen; I always

have a couple of bags full of green pods at the end of the season. 

 

Good luck going forward.  You have some great looking plants underway...

Thanks Qandeel / Paul

 

Let's just hope we can keep the bugs at bay this season. I've seen a couple of aphids lurking around already.

General good growth all round and warmer weather.

 

Can't wait until we have some colour in the photos, but it's getting there slowly.

 

Biggest disappointment this year was non-true seeds, but I will look after them anyway...every pod a victory

Jip, Not true seeds are a frustration , but part of the adventure, enjoy.

Check my plant named " This is not the road to Amarillo" on my glog , still an excellent plant.

I am sharing your pain on slow ripening pods . It is even more frustrating on the light coloured pods , like peach , white or cream.

Hey, looking good.

 

That's a shame about the seeds.

 

But at least they are chillies! :D

 

How's things coming along now?

That's my thinking TBG. Better than being bell peppers.

 

Coming along nicely and quite a few pods and ripening action. I'll be updating over the weekend.

Weather has improved and it actually feels like summer is here eventually.

 

Growth has been good all around and I even managed to get into the garden to do some weeding after the first photo below.

 

Pods are ripening and flowers making their appearance, but very few bees this year so we will see how things go.

Thought I would share what Santa bought me for Christmas :woohoo:

 

Mostly Aluminium / Galv steel / Polycarbonate - 1200 x 1200. A steal at less than $100NZD. Took 6hrs to build though.

Sweet little greenhouse, Jarrod; looks quite solid. Should

hold 10 big plants plants or so, and a ton of small stuff.  

I really like the double trays with drains.  Nice find...

Was the base included? 

 

Pods look tasty!
