In Topic: Anyone ever use future harvest Holland secret nutrients?

30 March 2018 - 02:17 PM

The store in town has them for $12 per bottle. I was thinking it could add up. Indoor use I might only be using a small amount at a time, so it might last a while for the price. The only thing I'm not sure about is if there is any added benefit over a one step fertilizer.

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.
