I just started the majority of my pepper seeds today and yesterday. I have a few older plants already established too. Here's a link to my 2018 list https://goo.gl/ABEymA

I shot some video of it today too.

Very nice list Peter, wife insisted I grow the blue xmas again this year for ornamentals in the front yard. Can't wait to see how that cross of yours looks.

Looking forward to more updates, Peter. I plan on doing the same thing with blue xmas, had to grow it, my 3 year old daughter keeps laughing at the name.

I'll be interested in the different grow methods you mentioned

I love the Blue Christmas. I grew two on my deck last season in nice pots just for ornamental purpose. Of course I tried them as well, I thought they were a bit bitter though. Growing them again this year for sure.

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

Nice grow tent, Peter, should work very well for you...

 

If you are looking for a cool ornamental, might I suggest

Chili Costa Rica?  Meter-tall dark purple plants with clusters

of erect, grape-sized black pods that turn bright red when

ripening.  Similar to a Black Pearl, although much more showy.

Awesome stuff, can't wait to follow your grow on Youtube again this year. I like your seed selection; lots of interesting varieties that I'm looking forward to seeing in your reviews!

As a straight pepper, like most ornamentals - bitter to me, not juicy at all.  

Lots of seeds.  But, like Black Pearl, they make great pizza flakes and

powder that is great for blending.

 

Forgot to mention their productivity - lots of bunches of pods.

Peppers at my office. Right is one I call Chocolate Bomb. Was supposed to be Mustard Lightning Hab. Turned out these really hot brown blobby pods. The other is MOA SB.

At home I saved a few of the extras and put them in separate containers.

I re-did two habs that were in wick setups, and set them up or Kratky growing. One has been getting Dyna-gro 7-9-8, and the other Masterblend. I'm keeping them in their respective nutes for comparison. So far the Masterblend seems to be doing better overall. I gave them a good pruning before transfer, but left the roots intact.
