MOA reds are looking nice but got a little algae on 2. They LOVE the fixture with the 6500K and 8000K bulb.




4 P. Dreadies are doing ok. Not as big as the MOA reds yet but i think they will be fine.




My MiraFlores Market rocoto is a tiny bit unhappy atm.



Aji Arnaucho are starting to get some real leaves.


#1539914 Bahamian Goat vs MOA Scotch Bonnet

Posted by ShowMeDaSauce on Yesterday, 09:50 AM

I grew MOA yellows from CCN last year. REALLY liked the flavor. This year im trying MOA reds and P. Dreadie. I just made a hot sauce from the MOA yellow yesterday and even though its a bit early to tell, i think its one of the best tasting hab type sauces ive ever tried.

#1539749 Are Bonnie Mucho Nacho a stable hybrid?

Posted by ShowMeDaSauce on 23 March 2018 - 04:03 PM

I grew them last year from Bonnie seedlings and saved some seeds. Even though its a fairly common Bonnie plant at Lowes/Homedepot i figured what the hell. I can always pickup a couple more seedlings if needed.


So has anyone grown them from pods you harvested and did they turn out hot or the same?

#1539744 MOA yellow sauce #1

Posted by ShowMeDaSauce on 23 March 2018 - 03:15 PM

150 gram MOA yellow seeds removed

50 gram Caribbean red with seeds

40 gram white onion

50 gram carrot

2 tsp minced garlic

15 gram piece of ginger left whole

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp sugar

5 allspice, 5 black peppercorn and 2 whole cloves ground

A dash of annatto

Roland dry white wine vinegar mixed 50/50 with water. Almost 2 cups total.


Ran it all through the Nutribullet first except the ginger. Normally i do that after cook down and cooling

Boil for 20min

Simmering now for about an hour.


Initial thoughts are its pretty damn hot but a little thin. Needs lime juice for sure.


Tossed 4 more MOAs in it just split in half.

Added another cheapo fixture and some 8000K T8s. My grow table is 4ft long and 2 fixtures left about 8" on the side uncovered which is about perfect fit for another fixture.




4 of the 5 Aleppos have begun to pop through. Germination rate at room temp was excellent on Eds seeds BTW.


Farmers Market, Mucho Nacho, Biker Billy (HUGE thanks to MWCH on that one) and Chichimeca are getting started today or tomorrow. Just gunna try the small jiffy pot 2x4 trays for germination to save on space. I just need 2 of each to round out my jalapeno grow.

#1539193 DIY grow tent idea

Posted by ShowMeDaSauce on 21 March 2018 - 10:20 AM

Now this is a small one just for example but the shelving unit and mylar bubble wrap only costs about $40 and its insulated.


Reflectix R-3.7 Reflective Insulation 24" x 25 $20 https://www.menards....91823350&ipos=2



Cheap plastic shelving unit






Of course this is just a very general idea but its fairly cheap and simple to assemble with nearly no tools needed. I even think ive seen some 10' or 12" rolls of that mylar bubble wrap. Drill a couple holes for your light hangers and its pretty much done. Ive already got a few of these plastic shelves in a larger size and the shelves are not solid. No need to drill any holes in them. Although the ones pictured could be turned over and double as drip pans too.

Our Costco just got in the good weed barrier fabric. Its a seasonal item only during the spring.


Dalen Pro Shield commercial grade 4'x220' with staples for under $30 a roll. Thats close to half cost vs other stores.


#1539039 Jalapenos are a gateway drug to stronger peppers

Posted by ShowMeDaSauce on 20 March 2018 - 10:57 AM

The next step up but very similar flavor profile are serrano. Personally i cant get away from growing jalapenos every year. I did one year by growing serrano but i adore the flavor of a ripe jalapeno.


Lemon Drop, Aji Cito and some other baccatums were another nice step hotter. They can range from lower serrano heat levels to over 50k SHU. Aji Amarillo produces some nice huge pods if your growing season permits it.


There are some mid level habs too such as Beni Highlands and Aji Limo. Sub 100k SHU heat levels with many quite a bit less. My Beni Highlands last year cranked out the pods all season but many were not even close to the claimed 50k+ SHU.


I would also grow a few typical heat level hab types, especially Scotch Bonnets just to get used to them. MOA yellows i grew last year were pretty damn hot and the flavor was excellent.

#1539035 What chilli to add for early heat

Posted by ShowMeDaSauce on 20 March 2018 - 10:40 AM

The Thai giant orange i grew last year wasnt that hot. What you got though did hit fast. Best tasting Thai pepper too IMO. The heat was way less than the dragon hybrid and birds eye i grew before.

#1539032 Anybody Wang Chung?

Posted by ShowMeDaSauce on 20 March 2018 - 10:27 AM


I used to have a joint too, but sadly moved away and can't find a decent place around. 


They are crazy time consuming, though I have gotten pretty quick at making them. It helps to make lots at once. 


The one drawback though is it aint cheap. You wont get outta there for under $20 a head and its a really good idea to have no less than 4 people. 5 or more gets one of the round tables with a "lazy Susan" in the middle if ones available. I love this place and their Sichuan dishes are top shelf. Its in the heart of our "China Town".

Meatloaf and not your basic topped with ketchup wannabe meatloaf. BACON LOVERS meatloaf smothered in pocini mushroom gravy. Full of white onion and some poblano too. Any kind of taters to go with it. I prefer mashed but that didnt happen.





Roux gravy made from the drippings and the great dark caramelized mess that was on the pan. Aint no damn Kitchen Bouquet in this gravy.
