I just went and re-read my entire glog from last year from start to finish. I now see the mistakes I made and exactly where I went wrong and can truly learn from them and try to avoid making those same mistakes this year. I was also kind enough to leave myself notes in the glog last year of what worked and what didn't, lol. Those notes are this:

 

  • Keep Lights at 8 inches or higher in the grow tent.
  • Keep good air flow with fans at all times.
  • Keep grow tent around 75F max
  • ONLY WATER WHEN POT IS LIGHT WEIGHT OR MIX IS MOSTLY DRY, WHEN IN DOUBT, WAIT ANOTHER DAY.
  • Fertilize early and consistently when using organic potting mix.
  • Pot up when 1st set of true leaves are at a half inch in length.
  • Don't break up root ball when potting up.
  • Pot up straight to 1 Gal pots, no solo cups.
  • 2 Bags potting mix to one bag perlite when potting up.
  • When outside, only water or spray for bugs/aphids in the evening and rinse plants with water after to avoid burning/leaf drop.

 

 

 

 


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

Troy--

 

Looks like you're all set up to do a monster season! Don't forget to shake that CNS17 a bit before using. Your OWs (the ones that live) look wondrous! I only have the two and have been trying to keep them dormant, but I gave up. The leaves are cupping and curling, I assume from insufficient light, so back to a south window they go. Besides, it makes the PepperGuru's tail wag that we don't try to put them into stasis for the off-season...

 

Have a bountiful one!


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

Thanks, Eric! Yeah I shake the hell out of it before each use. My OW's were starting to die from lack of attention/aphids, so I had to wake them up to keep them going.

Best of luck to you this season as well!

Got the fans hooked up now and I also bought a smaller one gallon pump sprayer for watering in the early stages. $5 at Wal-Mart, can't go wrong at that price. Sure beats the hell out of using a spray bottle and refilling it 3 or 4 times a day. My hands/fingers will be thanking me daily.

Also, my temp/humidity sensor looked like this when I pulled it from deep freeze in the garage in December, the right line of the temp doesn't work anymore, but I can still figure it out, not to mention the high/low temp displays still work properly.

I keep about 60 or so for myself and sell/give away the rest locally to family and friends. Almost everyone in my family has a garden. I have two more trays (144 more cells) to start still. Some more chinense varieties and some Annuum's and Baccatum's. I won't start the Annuum's and Baccatum's for another 3 to 4 weeks though since they grow so tall so quickly

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

Little update - All is going great so far!

The fans have taken care of the algae problem entirely since they dry the top of the soil out with in a couple hours of watering. However, I have been turning the fans off at night after watering so the seeds and cells get a chance to use some of the water. I have to be on top of watering everyday, with the fans now, the cells are all but bone dry by the time I get home from work. Also made new fan hangers with zip ties. They are more secure now and I can angle the fans slightly up or down by sliding the fan forward or backwards to shift the weight. So they don't blow directly on the soil anymore, just straight across the canopy about 3" above the trays.

I have at least one of everything and really am at or above 50% germination except the THSC Chocolate T. Scorp's, zero of those. I have a few of those seeds left, so I think I'll add them in the existing cells as backups. Also zero of the YBS for the Growdown yet, but it's early still. Only been 6 days I think.

Lots of true leave sets appearing. It's about time to separate the extras or cull them, which I have such a hard time doing. I'll separate some of the extras and put them into non-germed cells, then likely cull the rest if I can't find quick homes for them.

Lots of tri-cotys in the BTR cells and a few others as well, like my red Brain Strain. I remember the BTR's from last year had a few also, must be in their gene's.

I started updating my germination spreadsheet also, so I'll get that updated and uploaded soon.

Here's some pics!

Also, the close up is the same plant two days ago, and now today. He's also got a friend now, that may or may not live, lol.

Thanks Devv!

My package from Jedi arrived today also, and it was such a suprise, I had to stop at the hydro shop on the way home to get more seed starting mix, haha. I also have to revamp my plans for the rest of my free space, lol. To say he hooked me up, would be quite the understatement. He sent me some killer stuff. I have no problems culling the duplicates per cell to make more room now, lol. I owe him one, or three this fall! Didn't get time to put any in the dirt today, but I'll get them in tomorrow after work for sure!

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