First time doing a glog but have followed others for years now. I don't expect monster 5' plants being just north of Chicago but I do expect to have a good time in the dirt and to neglect pulling weeds a time or twelve. The goal is grow a ton of peppers for sauce and maybe even get into powders this year.

We're currently rocking a 4' 4 tube hydrofarm T5, which I think is an awesome fluorescent. In the past I've supplemented with regular shop lights in the seedling stage and for overflow but might get another proper T5 soon. First time growing in this new house so hopeful to avoid mites, aphids, and the like. I'll end up throwing some plants in the backyard and then also claim a spot at the community garden.

Best of luck to all the awesome grows here at THP. Hope everyone has a great 2018.

Here's the grow list, subject to change just a little bit

Aji Amarillo
Aji Pineapple (WHP)
Andy's Chocolate Reaper Scorpion (WHP)
Bahamian Goat (AJDrew)
Bahamian Goat (Fiogga)
Bahamian Goat (WM)
Bih Jolokia X Sugar Rush Peach (WHP)

Fatalii White (WHP)
Flexosoum (Romy)
Habanero Mustard
Habanero Peach (AJDrew)
Habanero Peach (Paphlady)
Habanero Purple (WHP)
Jalapeno Biker Billy
Jalapeno Zapotec
OBEAH (Bumpy Lobed)
Omni Bonnet (D3)
PDN X Bonda Ma Jacques (PaulG)
Peach Ghost
Peach Ghost SS
Scotch Bonnet Allen Boatman (WHP)
Scotch Bonnet Belize
Scotch Bonnet Chocolate (WHP)
Scotch Bonnet MOA

Looks good. Good luck in the new place. I'm just north of you by Madison.
I'll be saucing starting tomorrow...time to clean out the freezer.

Cheers!

Thanks Malarky -- good luck on your grow and hope the sauce came out spicy. Madison...ahh...Madison lol

I do the whole germ in a paper towel/ziploc method. Saw some tiny roots in a few varieties and tossed em in dirt. I'd normally let the roots get bigger before moving, but was itching to play in dirt.

I've got 2 bags of FFOF ready to go, hope that's enough for the year but if more is needed, looks like Amazon is the way to go. Think I saw it for 13 a piece instead of 20 from anywhere else I've ever seen it.

Yellow Brain Strain (2 throwdown)
Blue Christmas (only planted one but they got 100% germ rate really quick)
EOB Mustard (only had one seed and it was the first of everything to pop)
Fatalii white
Jalapeno Biker Billy (I won't regret starting jalas on 1/1, right?)

Hope everyone else's plans are coming together for '18

Curious if any the omni bonnet germinate for you. I probably won't start my baccatum for at least another month

Yea me too. Still nothing with omni bonnet, or 90% of what's on the grow list so not worried at this point. I've got some hooks of yellow brain strain throwdown, fatalii white, biker billy jala...

But blue christmas is leading the pack so far...if u can see it in its camouflage

Thanks Scott!

I can't say I'm having bad germ rates, but definitely slow germ rates. I started around 12 El Scorponero seeds on 1/1 and all of them just popped more than 14 days later. That can and does happen, it seems to be a trend for me this year. So to be safe, I started more seeds on Saturday using Juanitos tupperware trick since that worked great for me a few years back. The problem you run into now using the paper towel baggie method is "mold" starts to grow, so you've got to transplant to new towels or at least remove the seeds gone bad.

Here's where we're at right now

I agree, especially if everyone has seeds from Justin that he grew last season ;)

Good grow to you! I won't be starting anything til March one this year, last year I got a little ambitious and almost grew myself out of a grow!! Then again, I'm a bit more "just north of you" than Malarky, up here on the edge of Zone 3 Minnesota...


Do what I mean, not what I say.....

Interesting about the camomile tea. Those are some really sweet germ times.

Thanks Rick! Hopefully I can get them all to germ. I had to take the last 2 seasons off from any kind of real grow, but I don't think I'm doing anything differently. Some of these are just being a little stubborn but no doubt, the grow room will be full.

The new T5 showed up the other day and I'm pretty excited about it. I've had the 48" 4 bulb for a few years now, this is big brother 8 bulb. I shouldn't be surprised by the size since it's just double what I already have, but damn it's big! In the box it took up most of my kitchen island.

The grow room at this new house is a little small, gally style but I'll try and get creative with angles...or maybe paint the walls to make it a little more pretty for you 😀

Dang son, that's some serious lights! The trick is knowing when to quit germinating so you don't run out of room before it's time to harden off...

Ain't that the truth. I'll have to pay someone to do the culling for me

Yeah, what they said.  Great light set-up, looks like

serious illumination. I hope the F6 cross works for

you, Ryan. Mine took from 10-16 days to show hooks

in Jiffy Pellets. Not the best germ rates either. Dang.

 

Have a great season, friend   :cheers:
