Plants are looking great Paul! 

 

I can't believe how far along those red rocoto roots are! Jeez!

 

Ooh! Page topper.

 

Can't miss this one.

I've been slacking it around here, or been sooo busy, yeah that's it. I stay away a few days and bam!

 

You're killing it as usual Paul ;) I'm trying your technique this season and growing them larger before dirt day.

 

One thing I noticed about the square pots versus the round ones (#1 pots), I use both. The plants "stick" in the square pots; they fall out of the round ones


It's all about the pods....

  Good to hear from you, Scott! Thanks for
the vote of confidence, although I must
say I would not let them get so big
if we had an earlier Spring/Summer 😉

Hope to get a look at your awesome plants
real soon, my friend
 

Those plants are stunning Paul! Can't wait to see them full of pods changing colors. Thanks, Shane! You and me both, buddy. Page 20!!! Dayuum! Thats what happens when you have more time than money!

 

 

These were in test tubes not too long ago:

Paul, that Burgundy Pecan keeps catching my eye. Is there a story to the Pecan part? 

 

I had a 7P Burgundy growing strong from a good strain of some very old seed this year - the last I had - but it seized inexplicably right after I bonchi'd it :(

 

Kinda taking a vicarious interest in how yours grows now!

Kinda taking a vicarious interest in how yours grows now! Will save some seeds for you, CD!

The 7 Pot Burgundy came from Sawyer in 2014, I believe.

I grew it a couple of seasons, and in 2016, one of the plants

was throwing brown pods. One nice one looked like a pecan,

shape and color, so I saved the seeds from that pod.

 

I have since read that the 7 Pot Burgundy is or wasn't very

stable, and a variety of colors have come from the strain.

Don't know how true that is, but the brown pods were very

interesting. Used them for powder so can't say much about

heat, etc.

 

Here's a pic of some from the 2016 season. The pecan pod

isn't in this pic, but you get the idea:

And another...

Some more in this post.

 

Hope all is well with your grow, CD.

Thanks Paul, you must have a heck of a file system!  Mine was from back a while too - 2012 I think. Smoothish full pod and decent color (subject to memory).  I was happy to find it digging through the old seeds this past fall, now kicking myself for being so aggressive on the cut-back.  I guess rash decisions are one of the hazards of growing at or past maximum capacity.

 

EDIT - Yeah, bottom row left is more toward my memory, but slightly different shade of color.  And again, that file system!

Those pods were a bit shy of totally ripe.

They should be a just a tad darker.

Just keeping track of stuff...

Pot-ups to square pots seem to be happening in

groups of 4 every few days as groups of plants

hit the 40-day mark.

Yawn.   :D  

The Yellow BrainStrain* was the first First Round seed

to hook back on Jan. 1. It has always been sort of a

beast, but its bestiality outgrew its peers, so had to

leave the grow shelf and go to the workbench after

it was potted up:

It responded by forking and budding at 49 days,

same as the F7W plants :think: :

Your workbench looks like the grown-ups' table during the holidays. "Ah, yeah, we see you down there. In your cute little Solo cups. Nah, go away now, the adults are talking."

Have been looking at the BJ hybrid

and the Mystery Volunteer:

The slight purpling and the leaf shape and

texture make me think the Mystery Pepper

is a BJ hybrid. Not purple enough to be a

PdNxBMJ cross, and there were no other

purple varieties:

The topped Aji Amarillo has forked.

Bud since removed:
9085E817-6410-44A5-82E8-564A35EE81CA.jpeg

Hook: 12/13

Topped: Jan. 17th (abt. 35 days)

Fork: around 2/15 (abt. 65days)

 

There are 3 or four more branches doing

the same thing at various stages. Should

do very in a 3-gallon (real volume) pot this

summer!

Those are some sick pods from 2016 and your plants are monstrous brotha. So cool to see the progression thru the stages. 👍👍👍
Put down the pot and pick up the pod

My 7Pot Burgundy Red did not germ
for me this season. Last of my seed
for that as well. I need to chase down
some good seed next Fall.
