Yeah I didn't see any tits on that bird, blue or otherwise!
Think loud siren noise. P C Police here. You cannot use that t-word. Insert mammary glands please. rofl

You're keeping pretty busy, Mitzi!
Your grow is starting to take off with
the potting up and new seedlings.
The two liter pop bottles make great
planters - like to see how you set yours up.

I feel your pain, Mitzi. I have learned to double
label everything and use a seeding chart. Names
go on germinator trays, domes, cups, and anything
else that the seed/plant touches!
On the other hand, the mysteries are intriguing and
you will be observing the plants closely, and will
learn a lot about identifying peppers!
Here's wishing you luck getting things sorted out.
We've all been there

The swap seedlings have all perked right up and the Cheiro Roxa has "purpled up" nicely under the light. The only exception is the Giant White Hab which arrived with very pale leaves and floppy and hasn't really improved. I suspect it may have got too cold in the sorting office overnight (or Royal Mail van or plane.) Ah well, it's got two chances, and it's not like I'm short of plants!
Over the last couple of days I have potted up into pop bottles:
and pricked out into Jiffy 7s:
The Mango is a helmet head so I'm just hoping it can free itself.
I still have another eight to pot up into bottles or porridge pots and lots more still to prick out. It's getting ridiculous; I've got far, far too many plants this year. Next year I have to pare the grow right down.
I always say that. I never do.

"I always say that. I never do."
That's the spirit!
You are doing well, Mitzi, any pics
of your bottle technique?

Just for you, Paul...
The second one from the left (tallest one) is the plant labelled White Jolokia but it is clearly a baccatum judging by the growth habit. So it could be a Havana Gold or a Guyana Rush. I don't know which.

Thanks, Mitzi.That's what I kind of thought you'd be doing.
When I taught Science, we used to make 'decomposition
columns' with a set-up similar. Kids would put compost,
leaf litter, creepy crawlies, seeds, and whatever organic
material they wanted (no meat/cheese, please). Then,
watch them for a couple of months while the little
ecosysystem functions. Very cool, fun project.

Hey, you have been busy over there, Mitzi!
Were you able to quell the moth invasion okay?
Sounds like it's time to up the nutrients a bit.
Have fun finishing up the transplanting stage!

No, there are still moths. Obviously I squish them every time I see them but sometimes they get away, so I fear that there will be another generation of caterpillars.
Use BT powder, a product name here is Dipel dust. It's a naturally occurring (organic) bacteria. Instantly locks up a caterpillar's gut, then they starve to death. Gotta love what Ma Nature gave us for free
Also, if you don't mind (and I'm weak in this) is some pics. We just gotta see em:)
Good luck this season!
It's all about the pods....
