In Topic: need recomendations on super hot peppers to grow

As far as super hots go, Carolina Reaper is notoriously slow.  What I dont see anyone mention about indoor growing is lighting.  Until you bring the sun indoors, the basic rule is more light means more growth.

Weird, what I got out the video was a taste for American beer and volley ball.


In Topic: Best poop for peppers?

Yesterday, 01:00 PM

Using free 10 month old horse manure on mine and plants are growing like crazy (2 month old plants do that lol) got cow manure coming this Saturday so thanks to the usda post Ive got to wait 90 days (yay)💩

 

The USDA rule is because if you surface apply, rain can splash it up onto the fruit.  If using fresh, I would also worry about burning.  Thing is, I've also thought that chicken poop would always burn so I guess I dont know shit.

Solid7 - Never seen a poop sprinkler.  Looks more like a poop cannon.  We used to use what we called a shit slinger / shit wagon on the hay fields. Its a trailer that is powered by your tractor's pto that literally slings shit left and right as you ride up and down the field. A shit cannon looks like way too much fun.

 

HotPepper - I remember reading that human waste was used on the gardens at the White House.  Makes a person wonder just how common it is.  I had always understood it was a very bad idea because disease spreads easier between members of the same animal species.  Maybe it is OK when treated, but then how the heck would they claim it is organic?

Sounds like maybe airation isnt really needed.  I always thought it was because back in the day, read you had to change the water often.  Figured it was for airation.  Now thinking maybe it is overkill.
