#1644278 Thai Ornamental Chili from Bonnie - a mislabeled Cayenne?

Posted by wiriwiri on Yesterday, 11:34 PM

That indeed  appears to be a  Hot Cayenne pepper,Scoville 30,000 to 50,000 units,they are ~3 to 5 inches.

Label mix up as  happens sometimes..

Just checked my Glog and it was 10 days.

 

I am tempted to put the one I revived under the  AG  lights...but don't want to push my luck...

it's the bottom of the 9th and I'm 1 run ahead so don't want to blow this save.esp.,

in front of the home crowd. :rofl:

I  don't have anything much to add CD...my seeds,with one exception,   were done in late Spring 

versus Winter.Didn't use lights..I put them outside away from the sun & misted  as necessary.

I did have one this yr that germinated quickly in the  Aerogarden.& that was not to be...I still think

of that seedling & how it grew so fast ...what a pity.

 

I read  what Jukka Kilpinen wrote about growing conditions but did not see anything about the actual germination

technique he used.

Humidity yes...

Copied from Fatalli.net

'One growing hint might be that the plants don't take much water in from the soil (due to the lack of precipitation), but mostly from the air, which might explain the hairy structures of the leaves (the hairs increase the total surface area, which might help to absorb water).  During the Dry Season, fog occurs so often that it even gives the season its name, "Garúa", which means fog in Spanish.'

 

Its a fascinating plant yet so finicky... but worth the effort nonetheless.

Fingers xed.

It was my pleasure to share those with you CD...only wished I had done so earlier.You

have such great success as it is /more so with those difficult wilds that I see that trend continuing.

You should share your wish list for 2020...never too early. ;)

Hello CD,just saw the set up & it's really interesting using the Coleman Germinator.Is that what you used for

all the other wilds  you germinated?Would be interested in seeing how the method employed in summer versus

winter affects germination if any.

 
SO the waiting begins.Good luck with these.I'm pulling for you 100% & I'm  thinking positive all the way.

I would be checking in that there box  2 to 3 times a day or more than I care to admit. :shh:

Nice going Matt..That's a nice  flower on that Kangaroo Apple..love the color.

Cumari Pollux is a favorite wild...it takes a while to get going..but once going  ;)  it gets....lotsa pods.

Length of plant so opposite of C. Do para...

I noticed a few of my wilds are not tolerating the excessive heat,so I brought them indoors till Monday,

when temps will revert to a more acceptable range.
