#1590669 "Must Have" Pepper names on a t-shirt

Posted by BlackFatalii on 30 October 2018 - 09:58 PM

But let me ask a quick question. Why are my ghost pepper pods turning purple from green? 


Your best chance to get a good answer is to start a thread in pepper ID with pictures.


Yaki Blue is another really cool purple chinense. The mention of PDN just reminded me of that one.

Did anyone say
Pimenta De neyde?

Its a good one that isn't going anywhere.


Good call. And that one has been used in so many crosses too.  :cool:

#1589910 Will these lights work for seedlings?

Posted by BlackFatalii on 27 October 2018 - 09:28 AM


So would it be worth the extra 40 bucks for the higher lm/hoods/hanging clips or should I just go with the cheaper ones? 


Also, does 5k vs 6.5k matter for seedlings?



Yes, I think the lights you are considering should work. The ones Juanitos linked would probably be easier to mount on the rack. On the other hand, with the cheaper ones I'm thinking that you might be able to squeeze in an extra bulb or two on each level of the rack. 


Peppers don't seem to be that fussy about light spectrum. I have plants under 4100K T8s and 6500K T5s. They both work fine for me. 

#1589138 the need for feed

Posted by BlackFatalii on 23 October 2018 - 11:58 AM


There is no extra or different nutrients between indoor and outdoor growing. so if your plants are doing good outside then keep up with that fertilization.



This. Also keep in mind that the pots will take longer to dry out indoors during the winter than they did outdoors during the growing season. So it is much easier to accidentally overwater them, which can lead to root rot, fungus gnat infestations, and other problems that you don't want.


Also, I would recommend replacing the growing medium entirely and spraying the plants down with Neem or something before bringing them indoors, to help prevent bringing pests inside. Pest infestations on indoor plants can spread quickly due to the lack of natural predators to help control them.

#1587173 Last Dab Reduxx sauce

Posted by BlackFatalii on 13 October 2018 - 07:00 PM

Yeah, like Walchit said Da Bomb seems to hurt people on the show more than the last two sauces do. But I hear a lot of people complain about the taste of Da Bomb. Hot sauce should add good flavor as well as heat to your food. Otherwise, why not just go straight for the 13 M Pure Evil? That stuff is far hotter than any sauce or superhot powder.

Why not set aside the brown ones, but do a germination test on some of them? Then you will know for certain. That is what I would do.

#1586990 Last Dab Reduxx sauce

Posted by BlackFatalii on 13 October 2018 - 01:43 AM

Looking at the reviews on their site, I see some people commenting that the sauce isn't that impressively hot. On the other hand, Exhorresco is around half the price of the Last Dab, and I don't recall hearing anyone say that it isn't really that hot. So I am not too sure that the Last Dab is really the hottest non-extract sauce. And I seriously doubt the marketing claims that it is 2M+ SHU.



Should I save it for later or eat it up?


Hot sauce is food that goes on food. I think you should eat it up.

Could this be good for hot sauce and powder? Never tried a bhut before :)



Yes, I think those should be very good for sauce and powder. Chocolate Bhuts don't usually taste floral to me (sometimes the red Bhuts can be a bit floral though), but if sauce and powder is your intended use, any floralness should be less noticeable anyway. Any floral taste is usually the most obvious when eating fresh pods. 


The Chocolate Bhuts I grew took about 3 weeks to germinate, so be prepared to be a little patient when germinating seeds for these.

#1586735 Fish Pepper

Posted by BlackFatalii on 11 October 2018 - 03:03 PM

Yes, the Fish pepper is a pretty plant. The peppers have a nice flavor too. This is one that I grew a couple of years ago.







Hippy Seed Co has a variant that puts out blockier, orange pods. I may have to grow that one some time as well.

#1586607 Superhot Crosses

Posted by BlackFatalii on 10 October 2018 - 06:29 PM

What I mean is that those crosses are usually hotter than the landrace varieties. Bhutlah is an up and coming super duper hot. Everyone knows about the Primo. The Louisiana creeper is a BBM and a Primo, which is another up and coming super duper hot


Wait, what is your basis for asserting that such crosses are "usually hotter" than other superhots? You named three peppers. I wonder how many such new crosses are being made by growers around the world every single season? How many peppers have we never even heard about because they were nothing special, or maybe were even LESS hot than their parents? Unless you have something more to offer, such as some study of pepper genetics that you can link to that backs up your assertion, then I just don't see any real basis for claiming that such crosses are "usually hotter" than their parents due to some alleged special combination of genes. It is an interesting idea, but without some real evidence to back it up, that is all it is.


Also, don't forget that each of the crosses you named is the product of years of selective breeding. I would be very surprised if extreme heat wasn't one of the traits that Troy was selecting for at each generation when he created his Primo, BBM, and Creeper crosses. The selection process itself is a huge factor in the final result.


The BBM is the same cross but in reverse. 
My guess is that there are 2 separate superhot genes that when combined for a hotter superhot


OK, but is the BBM really hotter than its Douglah mother? Can you show that it is? I have tried both and I am not too sure either way. I haven't seen any HPLC testing for the BBM, so who knows whether it is really hotter than the Douglah?

#1586454 Superhot Crosses

Posted by BlackFatalii on 09 October 2018 - 11:40 PM

Has anyone noticed most superhot crosses are hybrids between the Naga Family and the Caribbean Family.


An interesting observation. It seems to me that a very large percentage of the superhots that are readily available (not counting all the newer crosses) are Bhuts and Nagas, and caribbean-origin types like 7 Pots and Scorpions. Maybe the reason for what you observed is simply that crossing a Bhut with a Scorpion, for example, seems more interesting to most growers than crossing a Bhut with a Naga or a Scorpion with a different Scorpion. I know that my own cross ideas usually use two fairly different peppers, rather than two very similar ones.

So what are your favourite peppers sorted by color? 


OK, I'll play. The list is a little long, because I have many 'favorite' peppers  :)



Red: Brazilian Starfish, West Indies Red, 7 Pot Lava, Red Brain Strain, Paper Lantern Hab, Rocoto Montufar, Sugar Cane (PL), Tekne Dolmasi

Orange: Bahamian Goat, Carbonero, Aji Mango, Habanada, BOC

Yellow: Yellow Brain Strain, Yellow Monkey Face, Yellow Scotch Bonnet, Aji Pineapple, CARDI Yellow Scorpion, Grenada Seasoning, Berry Amarillo (PL)

White: White Bhut W, White BBG7, 7 Pot White, White Chupetinho

Purple: Fidalgo Roxa, Purple Naga Viper

Chocolate: Chocolate Bhut, Chocolate Habanero(HPSC), Brown Moruga, Swiss Chocolate

Peach: Peach Bhut WM, Sugar Rush Peach, Peach Scorpion(HPSC), Aji Melocoton

Mustard: Black Bhutlah X

Burgundy: 7 Pot Burgundy, Purple Hab

Black: Goat's Weed (ripens to red though)

Multicolor: Purple Pumpkin



One of the things I first notice in a pepper is the color. And I like to have many different colours in my grow tent :D



If it is all about the eye candy, then Chinese 5 Color might be for you. The peppers are a little bland IMO, but the plant is extremely colorful when fruiting.


Also, variegated varieties like Fish pepper can look striking even when they are not fruiting.

From what I read if theirs sunlight then yes algae will grow, in grow lights its not an issue, will see.



In my experience, algae grows just fine under artificial lights. Now I cover any transparent Kratky containers with tinfoil for that reason.
