Even weak and poor sunlight should be much stronger than any indoor light. Your plant may be dropping leaves because the light is weaker than before. Either way it should bounce back and recover in a couple of weeks.

I haven't had that, but I really enjoy a Habanero Sculpin from Ballast Point, or Chili Beer from Cave Creek.


Rogue makes pretty good stuff so not surprised it was acceptable.

Chinense seem to linger longer for me. I find some annums like chiltepin to hit hard but subside fast.

Thanks for the heads up...I just figured this out myself first hand.
I noticed it this year after I kept spraying myself down in one corner of my yard. Two plants kept getting burned up, after a couple weeks I realized why.

And I thought BO would attract them, because a part of what repellants do is cover up your scent so they don't even realize you're there. But I know they're most attracted to the CO2 that our bodies produce.

It doesn't really matter for me, I always get f**ked by 'em. Especially since it's been so damn wet down here this summer. It's impossible to prevent standing water somewhere. I swear when I get some time, I'm gonna go get a few trailer loads of the free city compost and try to fill up any and all low spots in my yard.

My free city compost has the occasional small piece of plastic bag and/or glass. The glass isn't sharp shards, it's more like the broken glass from a car window. Two different counties in NorCal. Just FYI - your results might vary.
