Hi everyone! I've grown peppers for a couple years now, and posted some pictures of my plants on here last season. This year I decided to go in better equipped than my previous years, so I setup a 36x60x72 grow tent and started all my seeds in rockwool cubes. I got some seeds from Atlantic Pepper Seeds, and some from Puckerbutt Pepper Company. 

 

So far I've got a White Fatalii and Yellow Scotch Bonnet in the 18 gallon DWC tote. Other varieties I currently have growing in rockwool and in coco, are Aji Pineapple, Pink Habanero, Chocolate Habanero, Carolina Reaper, purple Bhut Jolokia X Pimenta De Neyde cross, Bolivian Rainbow, Purple Jalapeno, Farmers Market Jalapeno, and Purple Serrano. There's also a couple Tasmasmian Chocolate tomatoes  hidden there, and some some Bok Choy, Swiss Chard, Lettuce, and Basil in the smaller DWC setup. 

 

I'll update pictures throughout the season. I'm going to grow most in 5-7 gallon grow bags, and a couple in RDWC and a few in 5 gallon low pressure aeroponic buckets. 

 

Thanks for checking out my grow!  ;)  :dance:

Nice setup! And you've got a very cool variety of peppers in there. Your tent should look like hell's own candy shop when they all start to produce.

 

Not sure how I feel about those leafy impostors, but I suppose if you absolutely must... ;)

Thanks! Yes I've got quite a few times more varieties than I've ever attempted before. I may keep a few in the tent, but I will bring most of them outdoors in about 7 weeks or so.

 

Don't worry, if I run out of space the leafy impostors will be the first ones to go.  :P

 

Very nice.....good luck on your grow.

 

Thank you very much! So far, I seem to have rectified most of my issues from previous years. I'm being hopeful that I'll be able to say the same by harvest time.

Thank you! I'll be updating at least every two weeks.

Thank you! Yeah the tent has really helped me to maintain a good humidity/heat level for the plants. I'm hoping it warms up outside before it gets too crowded.

Thanks! Just a cheap Innova 19W led grow light. Nothing great, but does the job for leafy greens and seedlings. I've got a DuroLux 2ft x 4 lamp fixture with HO T5 bulbs over the 18 gallon tote.

Wow that's allot of different peppers I've never even heard of some of these

Anyone have any insight on what this could be? I was worried about root rot, but this looks to be more of a coating and will wipe off easily. I recently did a reservoir flush and started using a fairly light mix of General Hydro's 3 part FloraGro nutrients, calmag, and Silicon Dioxide. PH is hovering around 6. Light bleed shouldn't be much of an issue, especially since I foil taped my cover. I'm thinking it may be some type of algae?

Added another airstone to my DWC tote about a week or so ago, bleached the reservoir, and now I'm finally starting to see some white roots. I'm thinking that since the new roots aren't staining at all, it must of been some sort of Algae/root rot.

Here's the Yellow Scotch Bonnet.

Should I trim as many of the rotted roots as possible? I'd like to prevent them rotting off into my nutrient solution.

Thank you! Things could be looking better. I've lost most of my rockwool peppers to a Phythium infection.

I transplanted my Yellow SB and White Fatalii, as each time I'd get new healthy root growth, they would eventually get root rot until I flushed everything. 

 

Just this morning, I decided to transplant these two in some Coco mixed with Perlite and 10% worm castings. 

Most of the peppers in the cups are doing fairly well, such as the Purple Bhut X Neyde, Carolina Reaper, Aji Pineapple, Purple Jalapeno, and Chocolate Habanero.

 

The intruders like the Tomatoes, Brocolli, Romanesco Cauliflower, Lime Basil, and Okra, are doing quite well. 

 

Starting to Harden them off this weekend.

If it makes you feel better to trim and then not

have to worry about them, I'd say go for it. 

 

I've seen pics of Kratky Jars on the forum with

all kinds of goo   :sick:  in them, and the plants seem

to be doing fine.

 

Good luck getting to your plant-out time and

getting everything hardened off. That is one of

my least favorite things about growing peppers.

It can be a bearcat hardening off in our variable

weather.

Thank you! I'm not done with the hydroponic experiments yet, just rethinking my approach for next time around. 

 

And yes, I hear your region has quite the unpredictable weather. I must say, from what I've seen, it's a beautiful area.

We've had nothing but rain on and off for the past few weeks here, so hardening the plants off has been a challenge so far.

 

Hopefully I have a more positive update in the coming weeks.  :rolleyes:

I repotted all my peppers into 1 gallon pots. I used Pro Mix HP with some bone meal, blood meal, and kelp meal. Just watered them with some Neptunes liquid fish and seaweed.

I hope to put them outside this weekend.
If it only it could stop raining.

It can, it just won't.

 

The weather patterns are so mixed up everywhere,

it seems like. Looks like we are heading into a cloudy

June here. And rain showers.

 

Good luck getting some dry windows for planting out!

About time I had another update. It wasn't an ideal start to the season, but my surviving plants are perking up. Switched to all organic fertilizers and nutrients. While I've already added most amenities to the soil when I repotted them, I just game them all some Power Bloom from Gaia green, a little over a week ago. They seem to like it a lot!

 

From left to right. Carolina Reaper, Bhut X Neyde cross, Purple Jalapeno, and Pink Habanero.
