As usual I had the indoor pod set so had to get it to regrow for a nice harvest at plant out.

It grew great in our climate. Loves our humid and heat weather July- sept.

You will really enjoy growing it.

  I am starting to get excited to try it out!
 

That boc was a HUGE producer as well.

I planted two plants and was overwhelmed with several gallon bags of dried pods.

  Wow, smoked BOC powder on the horizon!

Alright, Shane! You can be my cover in case
mine do not come forth! I am just a teeny bit
gun shy about my ability to germinate seeds
these days...

I hope the seeds are intact... I took a couple from the bag for myself, so I still have some spare...

...but I might be wrong...

Paul, I'm really enjoying seeing your grow list take shape.  So many of your chosen varieties have - what would you say backstories? identities? - it makes it more interesting to follow.  It's like the difference between watching a sports team where you're becoming familiar with the players and some anonymous group of guys.

 

Best of luck with successful germination across the board!

Okay, Shane, we sink or swim together, my friend!

 

I have every confidence in your mad skills  :D

 

I hope the seeds are intact... I took a couple from the bag for myself, so I still have some spare...

Glad you have a few for yourself, Marc.

Very generous of you to share them.

Hope I can do them justice...

 

Fast approaching seed starting time  :eek:

Thanks, CD, had to laugh at your analogy  :rofl:

 

A large portion my whole grow, especially the c. chinense,

have come from folks on the THP forum over the past

six seasons, so thanks to all of them, and to you for the

good wishes, as well.

Ready for the long wait for Spring.  I just had

them on the grow shelf for the picture. They

will go on the AeroGarden deck for some cooler

light and growing  conditions:

Red Rocoto seeds - 3/4 germinated (10 and 11 days) 75%

Aji Amarillo seeds - 4/4 germinated (13 and 14 days)  100%

Both seed stocks from 2017 harvest.

We are blessed with space, to be sure.  When it comes

to suburban houses, 450-650 sq. meters, house and lot

is not unusual. And a lot of forum members live in more

rural areas with maybe acres of space.

 

Living in downtown Portland or Seattle is another story, 

of course. I have seen a few balcony gardens in Portland!

Yeah, when I was in MN, my apartment was in an old building, but man, it had space to spare. I had a room dedicated to my first baby steps in gardening, with shelving and fluorescents, and a porch that I pretty much only used for plants (until winter, of course, when the patio doors were plasticked over to try and keep some warmth in).

 

My house now isn't too bad, but when I moved here, it was pretty funny. My first apartment in Tokyo was 35 square meters split between two floors.  :point:

 

Hijack over!

I limit my grow to about 10 plants but could grow more if I wanted to. The thing is... I don't have a rain water reservoir so I can only water my plants with tap water, which can become an expensive matter when one has to water lots of plants during the summer months.

 

And then there's the (embarrassing) fact that I love growing chillies but I'm not much of a chilli consumer. So what to do with all those nice harvests? Until now I have given many away to my neighbors and colleagues but wish I could use them myself. I recently discovered the excellent youtube channel of chillichump (who appears to be a member on this forum also). It is all about fermenting chillies, and it has inspired me to give it a try also :)


...but I might be wrong...

No reason to be embarrassed... at least, I'd say that, because I'm in the same boat. This is the same reason I turned to drying and grinding habs when I used to grow them; you can preserve a lot of peppers for a long time if chili powder is something you use and/or have friends who would enjoy it as a gift.

 

ChilliChump is also a youtube channel I just started consuming, so I think we'll both be doing those experiments. :)

Thanks for the tip, Marc. I have been having the same thoughts.  

I have so much powder it will last me forever. But now I'm into

making the smoked powders with my favorites :crazy: .  I think fermenting

is definitely the way to go, and have been kind of looking into it a

little myself. Just hard to pull the trigger some time...

You guys both know that no one person (meaning addicted chili head)

can consume all the chilis they produce, don't you  :lol:

And I haven't ate last years yet either

Going to start my seeds in these rock wool cubes.
Any advice? First time I've tried them. One question
I have is how does the heat buildup on the mat differ
between the airy rock wool and denser peat plugs or
seedling mix?

Paul, I tried rockwool on a lark just this fall for 1 limited round of germination and I found it accumulated heat of the pad noticeably more than the small (9oz) solo cups right next to it, perhaps a 5F delta. I use an Inkbird temp controller on the pad, so when I placed the probe in the seed zone of the rockwool, the seed zone of the solo cups would be that much cooler - and of course, vice-versa, probe in solos would put the rockwool hotter than target.

 

Very limited experience behind my feedback, but I think you're asking a good question for the experts.

I've had good luck with them...the only real difference I have noticed is you have to get them stuck down in there pretty well to keep from having a bunch of helmets.
