We might have somekind of problem with Hesi coco+rainwater in our hands:
Yesterday i noticed few of the pods have developed this kind of thing in the Aji cristal plant, looks kind of like BER/brownish stain, but the spot doesn't feel soft to me.
All the other test subjects doesn't seems to have this problem in the pods as of yet, so who knows what caused these stains on the few pods, but i hope it is not actually BER as that would be kind of rare thing for me in coco coir growing. However if this Hesi coco doesn't work all that well with rainwater after all, i got one or two interesting a+b products to test next year to find me a replacement for the costly floramicro/floramato combo.
Picked out the first harvest out of the Hot paper lantern:
They might not be fully ripe as of yet, but nothing a few days indoor ripening wont fix. Did taste the smallest one and the taste was fine, kind of slighly fruity bell pepper sort of taste with some heat.
And what is with the Hesi coco having next to nothing algae in the container, but the Ghe one have line of algae growing in the container that i have used all summer to mix the nutrients:
Hesi must be using some kind of anti-algae stuff in the coco fertilizer and i have also ran out of usable rainwater, so it is time to use the tapwater for a while that i correct around 6 ph range using the Canna organic ph down fluid.
