Progress pic. Some things have moved, everything has grown. Added another vodka bottle. The six seemingly empty pots are two of each of the three new SBs.

You have to look at that hair everywhere as part of your fiber program.

Are you gonna plant in the dirt when you move them outside?

 

Encouraged by my brief experience with the vodka bottles, I'm thinking of growing these guys Kratky in half-gallon jars and/or 5-gallon buckets.  I just found a bunch of nice black buckets with lids at Home Depot.  

 

Will see how many I can get away with under my light, move them outside if I start to have problems.  Or buy another light, I guess.  Is it insane to think I might be able to keep them pruned smallish?  I'm afraid of bugs and don't need bushels of chili peppers, anyway.

Everyone needs bushels of peppers. Just saying.

Got your package today! Thanks, I might have to try those out next year.

Weekly update.  Everything is still (mostly) green and growing, but I'm having some problems next to my chair.  Diagnoses, please!

 

Here's everybody under the light.  All three new SB varieties are up.  I've got the humidity in the room up to around 40% - sometimes a bit lower - but I'm still seeing the slight cupping.  I now suspect the problems I'm seeing are down to something I'm doing wrong with my watering or feeding.  I'm mixing 15mL of CNS17 Grow into a gallon (as per the directions on the bottle) of RO/DI water, testing and adjusting up with GH pH kit, shooting for 6.5.  I've been watering with the nutrient solution every time (again, per the directions) the pots are so light I can hardly imagine there's much moisture left.  I've been watering far more infrequently over the past few days, though, and I've still never seen a plant seem like it's starting to wilt, so maybe I've been watering too much..

20190201_122522.jpg

 

 

This is an MOA Scotch bonnet.  He's turgid, but droopy.  The leaves are sort of textured, bubbly-looking.  I'm seeing this drooping and leaf texture with several of my plants.  The drooping seems more pronounced at the end of the day, least at the beginning.  Could it be heat?  Temps are mid-70s with light, upper-60s without light.  Or light intensity?  The light is 18 inches above the top of the tallest plants.

He's also not growing much foliage-wise, though the roots have been growing like crazy since he's been in the bottle.

20190201_121929.jpg

 

 

Here's another MOA.  Deformed leaves, cupping  I bet he'd be droopy, too, if he wasn't so close to the pot.

20190201_122017.jpg

 

 

NuMex Twilight.  One of my healthier-looking plants.  A little cupping, some discoloration (closer view in the next pic).

20190201_122232.jpg

 

 

Closer.  Yellow spots.  Cupping.

20190201_122238.jpg

 

 

Cayenne.  Major drooping at the end of the day.  Slight cupping.  Very slight discoloration like the Twilight shows.  Little flower buds up top?!

20190201_122340.jpg

 

 

Same cayenne, different angle.

20190201_122409.jpg

 

 

Reaper.  This guy's the worst off by far.  Looks pretty bad to me.

20190201_121821.jpg

 

 

Last one.  This leaf was dropped by the Amazon Special in the vodka bottle.  I'm seeing the beginnings of this in a few places on a few plants.  It's yellower than it looks in the photo.

Most of them look pretty good to me. I've seen the yellowish areas in my plants before. I don't think it's a big deal.

 

The leaves will wilt in the summer sun and heat during the day but will straighten out later in the day.We're talking full sun on the gulf coast. I don't think that's happening next to your chair. What I've noticed in my very short tenure with LED arrays is the leaves will bleach out, darken, dry out and just generally get weird colors if the light is too close. I think my 1200W LED may fry plants at a stationary 18" altitude.

 

The reaper looks like hell. Nothing to say about that one. Do you see any tiny bugs under the leaves?

The ceiling fan's going pretty good.  The plants sway a bit in its breezes.

Might add a fan.

Your fertilizer has calcium and magnesium? It seems like I remember reading that low levels of one of those can cause issues. I wasn't sure if I was overwatering, had my light too close, or had a deffeciency last year so I just changed all three. I think I added more fans too.

Oh and are you getting the leaves wet when you water? Maybe try bottom watering.

You might research bacterial leaf spot too, but I don't really think that's what it is

I would guess the blotchiness of the numex twilight is slight edema. Get a small fan blowing directly at them from the side so they can transpire more water. A ceiling fan won't disrupt the boundary layer of leaves. Especially if the plants stay close together under your light. The dense foliage will contain too much humidity.

 

Product analysis for your fertilizer. Ca:Mg levels are ok. Maybe it's a micronutrient deficiency brought on by the Manganese. That's the only micro listed in the nutrient profile. Usually it needs to be balanced with iron 1Mn:2Fe, but the Reaper and the amazon special look more like copper deficiency affecting the tips and margins of newer leaves. That's just an oddball guess. I don't know this for sure.

 

Enjoy the links lol

I've actually had a little oscillating fan sitting there all along, but up until now it's brutalized the poor little fellers so I've relied on the ceiling fan.  I left the oscillating fan on last night, about to go in and see if they've all blown over.
