#1498776 Baccatum with longest stem

Posted by The_NorthEast_ChileMan on 15 October 2017 - 06:05 AM

Yeah, it's a bit confusing but I don't know another word for it. I'm talking about the stalk from the plant to the fruit. 


#1498670 Hi from Twisp.

Finally, a hint to your location other than "Middle of the top of the upper left corner of the lower 48...."

IMO always continue a thread or at least link to it for info/pix.> A few concerns with my indoors grow


My input, "Watered normally, every time the top of the soil gets dry I give them a good deep soak.", over watering.

#1497753 Will hanging my plants help?

Posted by The_NorthEast_ChileMan on 10 October 2017 - 04:31 PM

The first year I grew peppers I didn't know about clipping buds in Sept. so as frost approached in mid-Oct. I found myself with 20 - 30 plants loaded with green peppers. Found an article (Can't now.) that reported yanking plants retaining root mass, hang upside down in warm area (I used a heated garage.) and spritzing the roots with water every other day, WORKED GREAT (Sorry no pix.)! Leaves died and fell off, stems turned brown but peppers continued to ripen.... Had nice red Jals in Dec.!

Recently I had a mishap and a few branches broke off a Scorpion plant so I brought them inside & left them on a table receiving 4-6 hours of sunlight per day. Most ripened, some rotted... Guess it depended on ripeness when incident occurred.


Sorry for blurriness, smudge on camera lens, wife not happy about other photos I might add....









Hope this helps,

Need a portrait view monitor I guess?

#1497123 ISO or Isolation specific

Posted by The_NorthEast_ChileMan on 08 October 2017 - 04:34 AM

The idea of branch isolation did cross my mind. Not to the extend of paint strainer bags though. I will look into those as a viable concept.

Along with paint strainers there's Reusable Produce Bags

#1496618 Has anyone ever heard of someone who died from ODing on Capsaicin?

Posted by The_NorthEast_ChileMan on 06 October 2017 - 06:13 AM

How many scoville units does it take to kill a person?


You are more likely to die from: "Often, the media will report the death of a pepper sprayed victim. Autopsy reports will show that the victim died, not because of the pepper spray, but as a result of the effects of the spray, such as respiratory failure or heart attack."

#1496206 Should I bring a reaper plant in for the winter?

Posted by The_NorthEast_ChileMan on 04 October 2017 - 04:01 PM

I think your best bet is to give a search to the term 'over wintering'.

The Comprehensive Guide to Over-Wintering

Blackfatalii is dead on when he says it takes a lot of light to keep them producing good pods.  Thing is, keeping the root structure alive will give you a huge head start in the spring.

+1 to a lot of light to produce fruit.

#1494413 This is NOT a Jays peach right? Or is it?

Posted by The_NorthEast_ChileMan on 27 September 2017 - 03:46 PM

Yeah no arguing here at all, I just hate everyone naming new peppers because they are mutts and didn't grow true. I am not sure which generation of Jay's I had for peach but I was the first to post the red and peach to this site many years ago. Since they are not far from me in distance a local nursery sells their plants. 


I cut down the number of species this year by a good 30%, very bored with all the new stuff and fly by night naming.
