Does this sound too hot?

16 April 2019 - 01:42 PM

My 2 overwintered mini reds dont seem as green as they should be. I tried milder options. Ive be going easy on the nutrients but the plants have reached 2ft before being cut back. They have been getting some time on the deck when the weather is holding above 60F and thats when most of the yellowing seems to have started. Granted lots of it are older leaves too but i think they could look better.


Hard to find a straight answer to this on the web but its roughly 1-2 tbs of calcium nitrate seems to be a safe amount for soil drench. I made up a gallon with 1 tbs of 15.5-0-0 calcium nitrate.....Sound safe for a soil drench in a well established pot?


Kelp4Less says 1 part to 120 parts water. 1 tbs per gallon would be roughly 1 part to 240 parts water.

Well its gunna be the first year devoting more space to Ghost level heat and above. In the past i just grew a couple as novelties but there are a couple that sounded interesting to try.



Hotter than habs

Jays Peach Ghost Scorpion from RFC seeds 2-3 plants

Brown Bhuts from Trents seeds. Supposed to be rather nasty from his older open pollinated Pepperlover seed stock. 4 plants

Naglah Brown from MWCH seeds. 1-2 plants

C.Reaper CCN strain seedlings. 2 plants

Dragons Breath CCN seedlings supposed to be Pepperlover strain? 2 plants

11-13 plants planned


Hab heat level

TFM bonnets from Trents seeds 2-3 plants

P Dreadies from TGCM and maybe some from my select pods too. 3-4 plants

5-7 plants planned



Mini Red rocoto from TGCM seeds. Plants i started late last year. 2 plants

AJi Oro from seed trade. 2-3 plants

4-5 plants planned


Mild to medium annuums

Zapotec jalapeno from RFC seeds 3-4 plants

Mucho Nacho from Bonnie seedlings 2 plants

Aleppo from Ed's seeds and maybe my own too. 4 plants

Antep Aci Dolma from my seeds 2 plants

Thunder Mountain Longhorn from RFC seeds 2 plants

Hot Banana from CCN seedlings 1 plant

Hot Wax from CCN seedlings 1 plant

NuMex Big Jim Heritadge from MWCH seeds 2 plants

Tekne Dolmasi from my seeds. These are awesome for a bell type. 2 plants

19-20 plants planned


Mild to medium baccatum

Sugar Rush Peach from RFC seeds 2-3 plants

Bolsa De Dulce from seed trade 2-3 plants

4-6 plants planned


Mild chinense

Aji Panca from my seeds. Seeds are from CCN seedling last year. LOVED this pepper.

4 plants planned


So nearly half should be close to hab heat or above and way more hotter than habs ive put any effort into before. Last year i did a a fair amount of bonnets and just loved the plants this time. REALLY liked the cheap ghost seedling i got too. I figured this year i would lean towards more in the "super" range and see how it goes. Then for 2020 settle back into varieties i really enjoyed from the last 3 years.


Pepperlover's Dragons Breath?

07 February 2019 - 02:33 PM

First time ive heard of Pepperlover having them and its not on their website. It is however listed on Chileplants.com. Pops wanted to grow a Reaper or two for grins. Chileplants is out of Smoking Ed's strain but has their own. Saw these and figured he might want to try them. Im full up on what i can germinate this year so......




DRAGON'S BREATH - super hot; Habanero; 2 to 2.5 inches long by 1.5 to 1.75 inches wide; medium thick flesh; matures from green to red; pendant pods; green leaves; 24 to 30 inches tall; Extremely Late Season (120+ days); this strain from PepperLover has Scorpion/Reaper shape; purported to have more heat than Reaper; C.chinense.



Aji Oro

03 February 2019 - 02:13 PM

Got a buddy in Idaho that did super well with Mini Reds and Miraflores Market rocotos last year. He got LOTS of nice ripe pods. He is looking for Aji Oro and just started his other rocoto seeds. He cant find any seeds and im not sure how well they will even do in his shorter/cooler season. Im under the impression Aji Oro is a hot weather loving rocoto.


I got a few seeds in trade and im starting mine this week. If i get at least 4 to sprout i can send him what i got left over. Just trying to come up with a backup plan if they will do ok in northern Idaho?
