So here is a quick update, one week after topping and stripping...

 

Control plant is growing bigger and leaves really getting huge, smaller plant investing energy into lots of new lateral growth.

So small progress update from me... plants all out on the windowsills today for some sun.
 
All of my baccas and annuums have germinated too, which is good news!

6 Year Old CARDI now really motoring, pretty impressive to say this is only from limited windowsill light.

I would love to do some crosses with anything.  All my attempts last year resulted in dropped blossoms.  I hope to have better luck this year.  Some glasses will help, last year I was trying to cross with potted plants in the garage and though lighting was bad, well it wasn't the light so much as my aging eyes.  I don't know how these guys do so many.  Maybe better luck this year with better feeding on the plants etc.

 

I bought a pair of cheap reading glasses with 3 x magnification and a pair of surgical tweezers from Amazon, was a real breakthrough moment for me after trying (and failing) balancing a magnifying glass and 'borrowing' the wife's tweezers!  I found the most effective method, especially with c.chinense which can be very fiddly, is to take a pollen sack which is almost ready to open and literally tear it open with the tweezers and dump the contents directly onto the target stigma.

Looking good all!

 

Here's my pair, one of which has had a commando haircut to improve combat readiness...
