I noticed your dragon was "bumpy".

 

I thought maybe dragons work the same way as peppers.  :confused:

 

Is it some kind of "Super Hot" dragon?  :D

Mine arrived today as well.

 

But really, I got free shipping, but it was $3.50, not $0.80, no cents symbol on the laptop keyboard.

 

I think you lost money on this.

Ah, I don't use PayPal, so if I forget to say it in a PM, I said it here, so I didn't really forget, to say it.

Yup, shipping was a killer. But I wanted padded envelopes. Wasn't expecting the USPS to gouge me so bad on first class!

I have some 000 padded envelopes that, as long as I spread everything out evenly in the envelope, and make sure it isn't thicker than 1/4 inch, and is flexible, should mail for two stamps.  I have one on it's way to Sawyer, who should let me know if they charged him postage due for it.

 

I've found it better to figure out the rules, put the proper postage on them, then drop them in a mail box, rather than take them in to the PO.  I've even sent over seas without any issues.

 

You were charged package rates, not envelope rates. Not sure if the size of the envelope put you there or not.

Are you going to do any coco coir growing this time around since you might have plenty of those fertilizers left?

I may do a few passive hydro just as a benchmark. Figure I already got the nutrients, why not?

 

Everything, though, will be coco based. I'll be using dry organic ferts in my mix again and fish emulsion, liquid bone meal for wet fertilizer. For drip irrigation I'll be doing fish hydrolysate and one form of screened rock dust or another for soluble via mazzei injector.

 

Total coco grow will be 200x 15# pots (401 cu/ft, or 14.85 cubic yards), plus approx 8,000 4" pots (90 cubic feet, or 3.33 cubic yard), for a total of 490 cubic feet / 18.14 cubic yard.

 

So yeah, lots of coco getting used. :)

 

ETA: that doesn't include starting tray coco, not sure of the volume there, figure about 100 starter trays worth of mixed sizes (72 cell, and 36 deep cell inserts)

Right on! I *really* hope one of us gets it to grow true. In hindsight I should have cloned that damn plant so I could have run isolated indoor clones through the fall & early winter, spend a few years recursively inbreeding clones to see if I can get a stable phenotype. If I get any "good penis pods" off of any of mine, that's the plan. I'll clone that plant, and self pollinate subsequent generations back off that original penis parent, to see if I can stabilize the genetics at all. 

 

(That would also let me experiment with crossing it with Giant Aconcagua, Elephant Trunk, Aleppo, and other "big swingers" to see if I can get a Big Dick pepper.)

Oh wow, dude that is an annuum, and this is still very early. That thing is going to be a monster by the time you plant it out. I'm not starting my penis seeds until early March. :)

It just occurred to me that if this works out and I arrive at a nice penis sweet pepper cultivar, I might not be remembered for the things I want to be remembered for. 

"Hey, that Trent guy, yeah he's the one that made those Giant Penis peppers."

 

sigh.

Nah, we'll name it "Trent's Penis".  You will be famous.

Unless I can't get 'em to grow any bigger. Then it'll be "Trent's Little Penis" as soon as another dude comes along with a bigger, badder variety.
