In Topic: Time to Relight

thank you for your responses...

 

I really want to relight with LEDs....they are expensive but will pay for themselves over time with the savings on the electricity bill

I'm looking forward to your grow AJ and think your older seeds will pop just fine. Good luck in '18

Let's get a pic of mama tepin!

 

I will post a pic when I get back to Ft. Worth...currently I am in Pcola with my dear mother...

 

That is an awesome backyard and a crazy amount of plants! I noticed my plants do better with a shade cloth here in Texas as well. How do you keep all the aphids and bugs off your plants?

 

thank you Reap....as far as aphids/bugs....it is a constant battle....it takes a long time to inspect  the plants, but I religiously check each plant each day...

AJ- what are you growing for 2018?
 

 

probably 5 or so of:

 

Long Tail Scorpion

 

7 Pot

 

Billy Biker Japs (~20)

 

Super Cayenne

 

Ristra Cayenne

 

Maybe a White Bullet Hab (if I can find seeds)

 

A few anaheims & cascabels

 

definitely serrano

 

maybe a Carolina reaper although I understand the taste is not as good as a 7 pot (which is my favorite)

 

I have so many seeds it isn't funny...well over a thousand and probably 80 varieties....seeds are old and I may not get germination rates I have had in th3 past, but they have been in a sealed container in sealed seed bags at room temp for a long time...

 

oh, and I forgot mama tepin...she is more of a shrub in my front flower bed and loves it there...

 

I have a lot of work to do between now and seed starting time.. and even more to get my drip fertigation system set up...need new drippers, controllers, etc...

 

In 2011 I grew I got the bug and had my cousin grow 1760 T. Scorps for me that I lost my A** on......

 

if you are interested you can view videos of my grows from 2010-2011-2012 on youtube.... just search AlabaJack1 and that's me...if there are no pepper videos, you are at the wrong place..heres a link

I would also beg a few Datil seeds from you if possible...gladly pay you for them... I have not had a good strain of Datil seeds in about 8 years...I used to get them from someone in J-ville...

 

 

if you haven't noticed, I tend to ramble a lot...

In Topic: Very Short Habanero, Many Buds?

12 November 2017 - 09:59 AM

DD and I seem to be thinking alike...it may have something to do with the spectrum of light being supplied.  For vegetative growth you needa more "blue" light....Iam in the process of relighting my entire grow room which currently uses 6500K color temperature CFLs.

 

as far as pinching the buds off...if you are in a hurry for pods to appear, letem' be....if there is no hurry for pods, pinch the dodo out of them
