Thank you for posting this.  You inspired me to do something similar this year.  I had been using Rockwool with bottom water in Grodan trays, but they grew at different rates and some would drink all the water before I noticed!  This lets me see the water level, and give them more individual attention.

#1602897 What will you be growing next season?

I notice you're growing Espelette also. I have original seeds from a real French Piment D'Espelette farm from the 2018 and 2017 seasons if you're interested!

 

Yes, I would be interested.  I have more seeds than I can grow this year and would be happy to send some in trade.  Feel free to PM me, and glad to meet you, Marc!

(edit - this about Solid Gold Bhut):  All I know is what Justin has posted on his site.  From red bhut seeds, a cross or off-pheno mustard bhut with somewhat lower heat.  Looking forward to growing it and will be starting the seeds this weekend. Justin mentions they were slow to germinate for him, but had a high germ rate (90 percent) with appropriate treatment (that he details on his site).

I need to sit down and figure out my grow.

 

Managed 24 plants in pots last year, bought them all and a late start.  So planning on doubling that this year.

 

But so many generous peole have provided me with seeds, plus almost 30 packs from Justin (got almost as many freebees as I ordered there), and a large order from Mojo (there was a sale, got everything he had in stock that looked interested, may as well make it worth my while, ordering from Italy.)  Way more than I can grow this year!

 

Right with you there on the great people who supply seeds. I also have too many to grow and am narrowing down my "big list" at the moment (edit: cut it down to about 36 or so).  Less is more sometimes, one of those cliches that proved true for me last year.

#1602638 When should I start my baccatums?

Posted by Oleic on 03 January 2019 - 07:21 AM

At least in the Camden/Philly area where I grew up.  Can't speak of North Jersey.

Feb 9 (Saturday) is the best day to start Baccatums in New Jersey.




#1602627 What's up, HomeGirls? (Mexican Oregano)

Posted by Oleic on 03 January 2019 - 05:12 AM

Based on oxygenated monoterpene content and p-cymene content alone, Poliomintha longiflora looks like the winner.  I am satisfied with the Mexican Oregano that is available out here (west) dried, but will keep an eye out for "grow your own" sources. Mountain Valley Growers on the other side of the Sierras has the other kinds: https://www.mountain...pgraveolens.htm

Chemical composition and antimicrobial and spasmolytic properties of Poliomintha longiflora and Lippia graveolens essential oils.
Abstract

In the present study, we reported a comparative analysis of the chemical composition and pharmacological properties of the essential oils obtained from 2 Mexican oreganos, Poliomintha longiflora and Lippia graveolens. The gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) profiles of the oils showed high amounts of oxygenated monoterpenes, mainly carvacrol (%[mg/100 g dry matter]) (18.36 [459.0] in P. longiflora and 13.48 [164.7] in L. graveolens). In addition, these oils contained marked quantities of p-cymene (14.09 [352.2] and 7.46 [37.3], respectively), β-caryophyllene oxide, β-caryophyllene, and carvacrol acetate.

My L'Equip RPM blender has a little speed dial with no presets, you literately rev it up like an engine and it has an RPM meter...
