#1539254 Pepper ID please.

Posted by The_NorthEast_ChileMan on Yesterday, 04:17 PM

I believe it's a moon pepper, it's dark on one side and light on the other. Usually found near Copernicus B crater.

This has been discussed.. I know you're new but a little research using the Search box in the top right of pages always your 1st stop.

Crossing Pubescens with Baccatum by using Eximium as bridge?

Foto of the flower will help.


Along with pic of flower - one of calyx area and fruit per node would help.


Habanero flowers are usually a whitish green, and are arranged in bunches of two or more along the stem. The fruit usually have an annular constriction located between the peduncle (the fruit stalk) and the calyx (the small, leafy structures between the peduncle and fruit). The plants tend to be slow growers, needing a long, hot season to produce fruit.

Capsicum chinense chillies are arranged in bunches; C. chinense or habanero chillies have an annular constriction at the base of the stem.

#1537533 New Dragon Breath Pepper?

Posted by The_NorthEast_ChileMan on 14 March 2018 - 07:19 AM

Good luck JJR!

#1537519 Anyone else thought of this?

Posted by The_NorthEast_ChileMan on 14 March 2018 - 06:29 AM

My though is that if you have an F1 cross thats perfect the way it is, you can take a branch from it, and graft it onto another pepper plant.

You might consider cloning rather than grafting.

#1536803 stakes with seedlings

Posted by The_NorthEast_ChileMan on 11 March 2018 - 09:19 AM

You do not have enough growing light power if you have to start supporting seedlings.


Hi i noticed alot of people put wooded stakes or sticks in with there chillies. Is this to help support the stem or does it help with knowing when to water?

OP never mentioned seedlings? Oooppps, it's in the title - sorry ChiliDude!
I use stakes for a few reasons. The first is to hold my 5 gal. pail handles upright between the branches of my pepper plants as they grow, learned early on it's difficult to lift a water soaked pot with handle at a 45° angle.
`As Edmick posted, the second is I tie the plant to the stake because even past seedling stage the plant can be damaged.
`And again noting Edmicks post, supporting those heavily laden branches is important.
`Or your plant will look like this.

#1536033 Lightwave T5 - 2 x 24W

Posted by The_NorthEast_ChileMan on 08 March 2018 - 07:14 PM


I have the Lightwave T5 - 2 x 24W. How high should I hang it above my peppers?

LightWave T5 Advice
Closer = brighter
The inverse square law states that light projected onto a surface is inversely proportional to the square of its distance from the source. Basically this means that the closer the lights are to the plant the better, but by a much bigger amount than intuitively expected. 
Halve the distance and quadruple the light. Technically-speaking, the inverse square law only applies to point sources of light. Since fluorescent lamps are long thin tubes, its more apt to consider these as line sources, which behave in a slightly different way. However the fact remains that fluorescent lights even the powerful T5s can be placed very close to the plants. The extra raw power of the T5 is considered adequate to overcome the deeper penetration of HID lights. 

T5-eleni-186x300.pngLimited headroom
The T5 tubes are mounted inside the reflectors so the total depth of the fitting is quite minimal. This, coupled with the closer mounting possible for T5s, allows for plant production where headroom is limited and is perfect for use on shelving units

#1535349 Pepper State?

Posted by The_NorthEast_ChileMan on 06 March 2018 - 06:10 PM

My favorite way that I've tried recently has been candied. I guess that counts as cooked though.

Do you buy them or make them?>`candied hot pepper recipe

+1 to letting them be, especially if you have enough growing season left.

#1533965 GMO peppers - anybody know?

Posted by The_NorthEast_ChileMan on 02 March 2018 - 05:41 PM

You are a bad mofo! That's the link I was talking about lol. I don't remember posting it!

While I don't think I'm a mofo (I don't own/wear jewelry and my pants/shorts ride where a belt will keep 'em, I will admit I have a 'tude that I am the shit.) I am known on another hot pepper forum as the king of bumps because I remember posts or know how to search 'n find 'em.



#1533754 GMO peppers - anybody know?

Posted by The_NorthEast_ChileMan on 02 March 2018 - 06:26 AM

There was a discussion on GMOs, GMO and Modern Farming a good thing?, that applies to the OP's original question," Are there any strains of these hottie-totties that have been messed with by the GMO community?", see the Post by Walchit on page 2.

:welcome:  from Taxachusetts!

Neither is better than the other. If you want a pepper not easily available from, let's say ChilePlants.com, starting from seed is your better option but if you don't have the experience and equipment to start from seed buying plants the better option.
