Nice work Troy!
 
I see pods in the making, it's going to be a hot year!

Thanks Scott! It's coming along... It's been a great season with only a couple minor hiccups so far. I'm about 2 weeks behind getting them all potted up, but that's ok, at least they're outside and we have nice weather. Going to be low 80's for the next 2 week's. Supposed to be almost 100 this Saturday though, that worries me a bit.

Next year, I'll grow less plants...  :crazy:

Quick update with some pod pics and stuff..

Plant label pic should be before each set of plant/pod pics. If not, I'll edit on PC in the morning to correct.
Some are obviously crossed or off pheno early pods yet.

This one below is a BTR, no label pic for it.

This is the hairy "CPR" that sprouted from seeds from last years not a CPR that we dubbed the CPR Red Grenade, It's putting out two different pod shapes so far...

Overwintered PNV...

Overwintered Reaper in 15gal pot, bushing out like crazy, I think this ones going to be a monster, even when I put it outside in direct sun for the season, it wasn't even phased, no leaf burn or anything. The others all had a bit of leaf burn from the sun.

I wish my summers were 10° cooler here so I could get these kinds of pods ;)


It's all about the pods....

Thank you sir! I like it warm, but not as hot as the weather you get. Low 80's is about perfect summer weather I think!

So it looks like my Purple Reaper was crossed with my Fidalga Preto. I didn't catch it with those first two small pods,but they go orange before red, and the only purple plant I have that does that is the Fidalga Preto. Which, like I said before, was next to my reaper plant last year.

So the pod color goes Purple > Green > Orange > Red, still pretty neat though. Hopefully the full size pods have some heat, some of those are starting to ripen now.


You can see two orange and two red pods here, these are all early small pods...

Closer shot here...

The larger purple/green pod near the top of this pic has a nice shape too it with a small tail.

Some larger pods...

One of the bigger ones turning orange...

This is what normal Fildaga Preto pods look like. This is not full size, but much different shape than the above pics

Will do. I'm going to isolate some flower buds today also for all my plants, including that one.

Talk about ripening fast... I posted this pic earlier today right after I took it...

And took this pic just now, so maybe 7 hours apart...

The difference between the normal PNV (red) pods and the chocolate PNV that showed up last year is just so cool. The chocolate pods are almost black...



Original PNV...

M.A. Wartryx "Hand Grenade" pheno, but these look like normal M.A. Wartryx, so the pheno on the plant these seeds came from must have been just that one plant or I wasn't lucky with the keepers I chose this season. Regardless, this was on my wishlist for about for a year or so now, so I'm still excited!

Isolating some buds finally. Bought 3 yards of this mesh fabric from Wally world for $9 total.

Decided to try gluing some flowers again this year. Covering the branches with the mesh is a PITA! If I had mesh bags it would be easier, like the paint bags some people use,but their a bit pricey for how many I would need.

When it looks like the bud is just about to open, like the day before, I just put a drop of glue on a popsicle stick and dip the tip of the flower bud in it.

Then I take the twist ties and take about 2 inch long pieces, make a loop and bend the end at a 90* angle. The angle helps hold it over the branch and supports the twist ties so it's not hanging from the bud causing extra stress on it... Slide the bud through the loop, then pinch the loop part closed just a bit. So if it does fall off the branch, it'll at least catch on the bud.

Then I come out daily and tap on the buds a bit to hopefully get the pollin floating around inside there. It worked on a few last year, so I'm banking on it again this year, plus it guarantees 99.9% isolation. No wind or bugs are getting into the bud.


Tools needed...

739920e48e39e1ea6cf361c10d8918fd.jpg


Make a bunch of twist ties loops like this one...

28fd5de6b3332948890f8fc733e20d7b.jpg



Put a drop or two on the stick, and dip just the tip... :rofl: ... Into the glue...

f4307ee90d6aa1d2774a115343663e4b.jpg



Slide your twist tie on and pinch the loop part closed a bit without pulling on or damaging the bud...

Put the hooked part over the branch...

56ec2e38c1d4433a77d03f5f62851fff.jpg




And in a day or two, it will look like this one, that you can see is trying to open, but can't because the tip is glued shut. Gently tap on the bud(s) once a day to get the pollin floating around in there...

You're welcome! It's not my original idea, I found it online and I know others here have used similar methods as well. I just figured I'd make a quick how to guide for anyone who'd like to try it.

I could crosspost to the growing sub also so more people can see it too. Might be helpful to some others.

Thanks for the tutorial.

 

I need to start figuring out isolation techniques, so it's helpful to see the pictures.
