Are Bonnie Mucho Nacho a stable hybrid?

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?

DIY grow tent idea

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.

MOA yellow sauce #1

Scotch Bonnet MOA Yellow

A few Caribbean reds for color. Mine are oddly somewhat milder and sweet.

Yellow onion....just a little

Garlic...just a little

Carrot...it just goes so well with hab type sauces and adds a natural sweetness

50/50 water/dry white wine vinegar 7%...about a cup of each but likely more.

2 cloves (crushed) ...maybe?

4 allspice berries (crushed)

salt to taste but probably a tad more than i normally use.


Did i miss anything?....coriander seed maybe?


Lime juice after its cooled, blended, strained and rested for a few days. I hate to make final adjustments too soon. I will get some actual weights measurements before i start. One of the mechanics up at the shop keeps mentioning how so many sauces are not very hot soooooooo.....These MOAs from CCN had some serious zip to them and great flavor.

Anyone tried this brand of T5

It comes with a Spectralux Blue 6500 Kelvin F54T5/HO 5000lumen lamp. I can get this locally for about the same price as online. Ive got a couple fixtures already but 1 more would help. Im about outta room now. :D


Sun Blaze Strip Light Supreme 41 https://www.1000bulb...SUN-960350.html


By the time i buy another cheaper t8 or t12 fixture with grow bulbs im nearly at the price of this one. Next year these could be chained if i like them.

Homemade suan cai

I used a mix of nappa and a broad leaf Chinese mustard. Fermented 10 days in my fermenter with a 2% brine. Then moved it all into a 2qt hocking jar for the fridge. Its pretty tart already and not quite as salty as i thought it would be. Its just salt, nappa, mustard greens, water and some Sichuan peppercorns.
