Jeff, Lovely pictures.
I see you have couple of pepper bonsai plants.

Can you guide me on how to create a pepper bonsai? Or please point me to any existing resources?

It’s pretty straight forward. You pick the plant you want to save and chop down the top growth. Dig it up and hose off all the old soil (to avoid bringing in pests) then repot it with fresh soil. Trim the roots as needed to fit the new pot.

After a few weeks the new growth will start to come in. From there you just trim it to shape it. e26f9226271de129b8fb958c5e528f6a.jpg9c06436e94ce24c282d7d5ca3538e150.jpg01001af798a6f59a6377961d3ccde2f8.jpg6be54644234cfaf1cd7029b3535090f2.png

Here’s a link to my hot pepper album, there should be pictures of everything I’ve included in the seed train. It may require you to sign up first though.

I was thinking Monday unless you need more time. Also be sure to message me your address so I know where I’m sending it.

Well that makes it easy!
If no one objects, we will proceed as is!

#2 you will be the first to receive the A train
and #20 you will receive the B train.

Posted by Jeffcontonio on 10 October 2018 - 12:57 PM

All right! We got a full train!

And now a vote...
randomize the order or run it as is? Keep in mind we will be splitting up the train into an “A” train moving from 1-20 and a “B” train moving from 20-1.

I’ll give it a bit longer to see if we can fill those last spots. If not, we will proceed with the group we already have.

#1585778 Stabilizing for desired shape

Posted by Jeffcontonio on 06 October 2018 - 01:03 PM

Thats a pity but well done for trying anyway

Did you overwinter the parent plant of the pods you collected seeds from? Or is that gene gone now?


I didn’t overwinter it. But I’m ok with that. Very few pods actually had that trait.

My next project is a similar one, but with a different twist. This time more of the plant is showing the desired trait. It’s the “California Reaper “ (JPGS x Reaper) from Tyler farms. I was disappointed last season when very few produced reaper like shapes like their advertising. I took the best looking pod last season and grew it out again this season. Still crap. However one plant out of 10 looks promising, so I’ll give it another shot.2fa053bbfcaaead87a43ec6d8dffd5c5.jpg

*update:

I had grown out 25 plants from the seeds I collected from the tulip shaped pods. None of the plants reproduced the desired results. I don’t think it was a total loss though. I mean I like Moruga anyway. Plus it was a learning experience. Sometimes the best lessons come from failure.
