A few of the seeds that I'll be including in the next seed train, with a lot more harvesting and drying to do.

I think I'm going to dedicate my garden to this project next season.

#1488175 Stabilizing for desired shape

Posted by Jeffcontonio on 01 September 2017 - 12:09 PM

One of my plants is putting out some interesting shaped Moruga. I'd like to stabilize it so that it consistently produces "tulip shaped" pods.

How many generations do you think it would take to achieve this goal? 67cbeb63d4e34e1e3c850718e65e06d2.jpg

I keep hoping there is gonna be a comment about the seed train running again but it's always some Irrelevant comment again, maybe its the bad grammar or language barrier or Whatever but I hear ya on spamming the thread


The signup will begin on October 1st. The train will begin immediately after the list is filled, which I expect will fill up quickly.

As for the germination test on the seeds in question, it will continue for a total of 60 days. If at that point they are deemed unviable they will be removed from the box and discarded.

Also I would like to add that it's extremely offensive to the individuals who participated in this seed train to undermine its integrity based on one difficult to germinate variety.

#1486349 Mold inside peppers

Posted by Jeffcontonio on 24 August 2017 - 02:10 PM

That makes sense. I did bring these plants out very early while temps were less than optimal.

#1486315 Mold inside peppers

Posted by Jeffcontonio on 24 August 2017 - 12:24 PM

I'm finding mold inside some of my peppers.
I've searched the web and have not found anything that explains why this is happening. It's always the seeds that are moldy.

I harvest my peppers as soon as they are nearly ripe, most with just a tinge of green still on them, so it's not because they are over ripened. I've noticed that it's usually the smallest pods on the plant and the first to start to ripen. They appear fine on the outside without any noticeable holes or damage.

What's going on and how do I prevent it?

love the heat source Comcast style lol
 


That thing puts out a ton of heat! No joke! I can't put the remote on it since it gets too warm and I don't want the batteries blowing up on me.

Not sure what you mean Compared I was asked what and how long have they had in sprouting tent I guess I missed the memo my bad

I'm going to go out on a limb and assume they meant what "pepper" varieties you were having germination issues with.

The more info you can provide about the pepper varieties you are having issues with the better we can address the problem. Can you let us know the exact pepper types and your detailed seed starting method? Did you pre-soak the seeds? What soil type do you use. Ambient temperature and humidity?

I spoke to you before and I have every intention of working with you to resolve this but I can't unless I'm given more info. I'll grow the varieties here and see if I get a similar result.

WOW,  I can see why it grows.  Even if I took 3 of each seed for next years grow it would be way too many.  But still... I WANT IN!!!  Where's the train schedule?

stay tuned! It's coming in October.
