Saturday Update.

 

Some plants in the garden have decided to die off. No idea why and that's with seemingly healthy plants in the same bed.

 

Aphids have also visited en mass, but slowly getting them under control...

 

Some general pics below

 

Soil Experiment (It worked superbly) - They are both White Hab plants. Experiment was to take the smaller of the two and try out a new soil mulch to see if it could catch up to the bigger one.

The pot volumes are about the same, but the test one is a hydro pot lined with breathable mat (aka grow bag). The mulch is a "live" lucerne mix that reacts as soon as you open the bag with oxygen. It then matures in the soil that you mix it with enriching the soil with nutient and all the good bugs and microbes that come with it. I used it as a 50/50 mix with some premium soil. Around 24hrs after opening the bag it was at a guess 35-40 degrees. Good stuff.

Oh my god those Chocolate Bhutlahs are going to burn your butt off. Those gnarly pods look like the chocolates I grew in 2015 that put blisters on my lips. Only pepper to ever give me chemical burns.

Looking good KAOS!

 

good luck with the chocolate supers! I've never met one that didn't burn twice :onfire: 


It's all about the pods....

Looking fantastic!

Can't get over how quick those Ebony Fires have grown!

Might just be lighting in the pic, but is that Reaper pod Orange?

Great work, keep it up, all the best, TBG.

I know what you mean Trent. All in moderation I guess. Don't think I'd be able to handle a full pod :onfire:

Thanks Devv. Burns three times if you burp after 30min.

Hey TBG. It's doesn't have its full colour yet, but the app I'm using for the photos uses the flash as a bulb and it's quite yellow so actual colour is a bit off.

Ebony fires are looking great. Do they go red when they ripe?

Been really slack keeping glog up to date. Mixed bag on progress with some plants just wilting and dying while others still growing beautifully. Only got a few weeks left before the dreaded frost comes in so hopefully a reasonable weekly harvest until then.

Here’s today’s offering- no idea what to do with them though.

Thanks Devv.

 

Not the best, but not bad for a hobby grow. Always learning so aiming for a better grow this year.

Most definitely not bad ;)

 

That's a fair amount of heat there to keep you burning :dance:
