In Topic: Most flavorful peppers?

20 October 2017 - 12:14 AM

The Yellow 7 Pot is an aromatic monster. In this day and age it gets little to no love but it ticks every box.

But pubescens and baccatums are my personal favorites for flavor. Not too many terrible ones in that bunch.





I can save you the time and effort if you want.

 

I loved my yellow 7 pots (brainstrains), they have solid flavor and produced well enough for me. The baccatums are a real solid way to go for something that can produce a lot, have fantastic flavour and are mild enough to eat right off the plant. Bishops crown are one of my favorites at the moment.

Here is a final video of my garden for the season. I am still going to try to do a bit of documenting of the plants before the cold finally kills everything off. A friend suggested pulling warm air from the house into the greenhouse to keep the frost at bay. I have already started harvesting some peppers starting with my bell peppers on the deck, all of my jalapenos, half my fresnos, and tonight all of my mystery peppers (the ones that were suppose to be I Scream Scorpions). I will be posting up pictures, once I have harvested everything.

 


In Topic: Should I bring a reaper plant in for the winter?

Almost forgot that you will want to be prepared to take care of aphids when bringing in the plants though. I collected a few ladybugs that hung around my plant for a couple months when they first came in the house.

They are looking real good for sure. I can tell you that they will have awesome production next year if brought in over the winter I dug up a chocolate habanero plant from last season, because they were just flowering when the cold hit us. I kept the plant under a couple 6 tube t5 fixtures all winter and it put out around 300 pods through this season. There are still around 30 or so small pods ready to harvest. Sadly, I won't get to keep it this winter though.


In Topic: Attempting to root a broken branch aeroponics

29 September 2017 - 06:35 PM

I totally was going to take pictures and post them this weekend. The plant stem was turning black, but up to the top where the branch "wye'd" there were a few stringy pieces that seemed to be roots. I decided to put it in a bucket of soil and see what would happen. To my dismay this morning, when I went to turn on the lights, waiting for me was a plant completely destroyed. Our kittens made their way into my grow stand and had a great time murdering my project. Guess it was a good way to find out that they won't play nice with my plants. I'm going to have to completely close it in before I can start next years seeds. After a bit of cursing and threatening to toss the cats to the curb, I am over it now, but man was that not a good way to wake up for the day.
