Pages 1-10 Read!
Ok first off... What happens in the grow box... stays in the grow box. The Vegas pepper strip you have going on is one of the most entertaining things I've seen in a long time! Viva Las Chiles maybe? Ah man that is too freakin cool. I had no idea they even had strip LEDs learned something new today. Great variety, beautiful plants! I had to laugh as well "My wife made me sand it down and stain it since its in the living room" I can relate, this hobby is a never ending negotiation with my wife on everything. I have a LED aquarium light propped up on campbells soup cans in my family room window right now and got the ol...
"So... are you gonna do something about that?"
"Oh I don't know.. Maybe the fact that there's a fish tank light on soup cans and pepper plants in our family room, maybe that thing?"
"You got it hun!....." little does she know that me "doing something about it" means that I've been secretly planning to clear out our guest bedroom while shes at the park with my daughters friend today and turn it into a grow room, by the time she gets home it'll be too far undone and she'll have no choice but to go with it! That's the plan anyway...
I also decided from here on out I'm not going to complain about our winters ever again after seeing and reading about yours. Good lord man I couldn't handle all that snow, we got snowed in for a week this year and I almost went crazy! Props to you in the patience department!
Pages 11-20 down!
It's really hard to restrain myself from skipping ahead and finding out how the space issue is working out present day... Its quite a lesson in self control that I have going on right now! Man those plants are beauties, orange yaky has purple foliage eh? Huh.. I've only seen pod pictures wasn't expecting a purple plant! Waiting on some to sprout on my end..
I should note that "eh" is a word I actually do use in my day to day vocabulary and I'm not poking fun in anyway! We have a few canadian plant suppliers that come visit me at work from time to time. I think one year I picked it up from one of them and it just stuck lol. I went back to proof read my stuff and saw that I threw an "Eh" out there and was like Ahhh shit! Canadian glog... I don't even know the guy yet and hes gonna think I'm making fun of his vocabulary! Ok back to the glog! Had to clear that up first! lol.
21-30 down and officially up to date!
Man your plants look good! And big for that matter
seeing all that snow still and knowing how big your plants are has me nervous for you! We have total opposite problems I'm playing catch up and your way ahead of schedule! I wouldn't stress too much tho when it comes to being rootbound/stunted I think the second you get them in big pots, new nutrients, break the roots up a bit they will take off. I would absolutely without a doubt take potting up big overgrown root bound pepper plants as opposed to small healthy seedlings any day, especially in a climate like yours! It'll all workout I have complete faith in your grow! Looking forward to seeing the greenhouse take shape as well. Dude I'm serious, I'm going to be so god damn happy for you when all your snow is gone, it's pissing me off and I'm not even there! Absolute insanity. Melting snow in the greenhouse with a heater in late April... I'll say it again, major props to you. That is dedication at its core right there.
Nice work Matt, nice work
