OK, so I learned something on this post.  I tried to make this post over 20 times and I tried 2 different browsers, rebooting, logging off and on, typing, pasting, etc.  Know what it came down to?  The site will not let me post the word "f-r-o-m" below. Every time I try to post that word the site takes me to the index and refuses my post.  Every post without that word is accepted.  Hope this experience helps somehow.  Actually, I can post with the word "from."  I just can't post with it in the position it is below.  I came back again and edited to test the word "from" in this paragraph and it took, but when I tried to edit again to replace "f-r-o-m" with "from" in the position below it again rejected the post and took me to the index. Weird.

 

 

 

So, here's the post that took forever to make-

 

 

It's great to see all the pictures of rocotos posted recently.  Some are even showing up in unexpected places - and often showing excellent taste in their beer selection. 

 

This is my OW Gelbe Riesen "Var," which came f-r-o-m my true GR, but shows some variation in the color and shape of the pods. One of the cool things about both GR’s is they show a more upright/lifted growth profile than many other rocotos. And yeah, I'm well behind in getting this guy cleaned up and potted up into a larger summer home.

Haha.  Hey Stetto - how's it going?  Good to see you're starting to get OW's outside and already have pods setting on the red.  Hopefully the rest of your plants will be outside soon and a warm summer is on the way.

 

No idea what the posting glitch is, but at least starting to figure out the work-around.  Gotta say through I'm feeling

of your ability to post the word "from" seemingly at will.

 

 

Oh, and I did sneak in a mini duck - at the very end.

The manzano's seem to be harding off much better then most everything else I got going, So hopefully I'll be putting them in the ground this week.

Here's an early morning shot...... just because.

Any else ever notice how rocotos have a different posture for when the sun is shining and when it isn't (overcast, late evening, etc)? The best way I can describe it is that when the sun is shining, the leaves sort of open up and spread out. When the sun isn't shining, the leaves sort of curl down into a round shape - presumably to preserve the warmth or something similar.

 

All of my rocotos do this, both Manzano Rojos as well as Montufars. And yes, the tree pollen is EXTREMELY heavy now for many weeks on end already and we haven't had rain for quite a long time. You can see how a rocoto catches pollen :-)

All of my Pubescens plants curl down as soon as the sun goes down, much more so than any of my other non rocoto plants do. Your plants are looking nice and healthy there!

And the same rocoto standing at attention. Looks quite different in "daylight" mode.

Your Rocotos are looking great Podz - same to you DanMcG & great pic with the dark green and purple flower.

 

As long as those leaves perk back up versus a permanent curl I'm feeling good.

 

Looks like HEL is heating up!

Yep, HEL is heating up. My Rojos have been outside for several weeks already. Leaves perk back up when the sun rises. It's like they have a life of their own or something  :onfire:

 

My Montufars are doing fine as well.

 

I have a Pico Mucho that seems to be in bad shape no matter what I do - overnuted, sunburned, overwatered, dropping leaves, drying leaves, etc. Not a happy camper. I finally said screw it and put him in a 2 gallon pot with POBGS - no perlite, no vermiculite, just dirt. I am guessing that he will now make a comeback, but let's see.

 

My ability to post photos keeps dropping and dropping. The size of the allowed photo is now 1.69MB and gets smaller with every photo I post, so I guess I'll just need to stop posting photos or something. Strange.

I just recently started to read through your glog podz so I'm catching up and getting a feel for your grow - this place can be hard to keep up with.  Happy that your rescue Montufar are getting strong.

 

I think most people either migrate to third-party hosting of pictures or get an extreme membership to avoid limitations on storing pictures through a basic THP account.  Maybe people will offer suggestions as to what third-party solution works best.

Learned a trick today when I went to visit Jukka "Fatalii" Kilpinen. He told me that the trick to get rocotos to produce fruit in greenhouses is to spray them down with cold water before going to bed, which tricks them into the "cold nights" that they need.

Mine are starting to bloom including the branch i lost. I stuck it in a small container with rain water and a tiny bit of Happy Frog for the kelp meal in it. The Oro and my smaller mini red seem to really be enjoying the weather. My best mini looks ok but a tiny bit droopy in the exact same potting mix and fabric pot. Its pot might be getting a little warmer than the other one but i thought it felt fine a few minutes ago.

 

We are still getting some really good night vs day temp swings. Nothing cold but a solid 15F or more difference. Forecast says a few nights this coming week will be on the cooler side also.

Three of my Giant Red Arequipa plants are flowering. The flowers are pretty huge, even for a Pubescens.

That's awesome!  Will be some good pods for rocoto relleno.

 

Ants to provide scale?

I can't wait to make rocoto relleno with these in a few months. Yeah man, ants for scale.

Great thread!
Thanks for all the beautiful pictures.
I need these pictures to get through this winter with my Rocotos overwintering in the shed.
