These pictures may very well be the last pictures i will take before the new growing led light arrives:

IMG_20180211_0837151.jpg

If our mail system was not this slow like it is nowadays, i could have had the new light in friday and not in monday. :rolleyes:

 

Edit: just checked the mail tracking code and it said that the growing light have arrived in saturday, but did not get any MSM in my smartphone... :mope: Whatever, i will go and get it right now!

Day 1 for the 180w cob led spider:

IMG_20180211_104423_1.jpg

 

If you compare the 100w led growing light picture to this new 180w led growing light picture..The 180w led growing light seems to be brighter in comparison.

They are alive after using the new glow light for many hours:

Kind of looks like they liked the new led growing light i bought for them, but we will see what they really think in a week or two perhaps.

Looks good man. Do you sprout directly in those larger pots?

No, i first use the small rockwool cubes in a mini greenhouse to sprout them. Once they make some roots inside the rockwool i will then put them to the bottom of the pots and fill the void with coco.

 

The most important thing to remember is to water the center of the pot to soak the rockwool until the roots start to grow to the coco medium.

They are always very slow in the beginning, but if the chilis look good i just have to wait for the real grow to start. The new grow light was in the distance of 60cm before, but now i lowered it to 50cm as the chilis have been getting used to the new light for a few days now.

Day 13:

They are still alive, but i might need to lay off some of that overwatering i have been doing lately to them..As a bit less watering might make them grow a little bit better when they are still so small. :rofl:

Looking great Chilidude... roll on summer! If you don't mind me saying, your plants are a little on the leggy side. Lowering lights or increasing lumen might help. Airflow also will help with thickening the stems. May help :)

Only the C.baccatum are the "leggy ones", if you can call them leggy being only about 11cm tall and it is very normal for them as they are very fast growers and my C.chinense are very compact in comparison.

 

Lumens are more than fine, as this is a new 180w gob led and it is about 55cm above them. The second growing nodes with these c.baccatum is very short with the new light compared to the previous 100w led light.

 

Any exposed stems will be buried in the new larger pots when it is time, so being a bit leggy is a huge plus for me, so dont be concerned as it is not the first time and not the last time i have done it that way. :dance:

These terracotta pots can really sweat a lot of water to the matt, but just the right amount that the chilis can absorb it continuously like in a passive wick hydroponics.

Really cool, am I understanding it correctly that you fill the pots with nutrient water which proceeds to travel through the clay wall and on to the matt underneath the seedlings?

Yes, that is the idea and it really works great. The plastic lids on top of the terracotta pots should stop the algae from growing inside the pots.

So I guess there's no hole at the bottom of the terracotta pots?

There was a hole, but you are suppose to blug it with some suitable stuff intended for places with constant water exposure. I just used loctite power epoxy metal to blug it and used non stick paper underneath the pot to not make the glue stick to it while it dry.

The water level of the original first terracotta pot have not reduces much at all, even if it have sweated constantly for well over a day:

This petenero chili have already noticed the tasty constant moisture i have providing for the chilis in the past couple days:
