#1646257 Bacterial leaf spot? Too high EC?

Posted by CMJ on 04 August 2019 - 10:05 AM

Yes, maybe bottom water and let them be...

Also, you want the top couple inches of soil to stay dry to prevent overwatering, fungus gnats, and other problems. The top can be dry and still be soaked on the bottom.

They look fine to me. Definitely don't see any signs of bls. Do you have them in straight coir? Feeding every couple of days seems excessive otherwise. I dont generally start feeding mine until they have 6-8 sets of true leaves.

This is my only Bonnet plant this year and it is very prolific considering the size of the plant. I have gotten a few "Dreadie" shaped pods but most on this first wave are off-pheno. I expect that to change as the season progresses. Thanks to Chewi for helping me out with seeds.6a80020eb1c0a15162acbf41dd946d3b.jpge83f80e2731a01b1f4efed67e1aa1e8c.jpg937db03d658516f68cdbef975059df8b.jpg7107669d5851579de2db72c8ca2fd614.jpgb23dd0d1d2d4791ed2c2ffa60545c3f1.jpg

Turned the Aji Fantasy into jelly. Just did a small batch as a trial run. Pretty amazing flavor!47d333d0c98f9ca4799dc268520b5f4f.jpg5b974cd2403548df530ae5257c0e236a.jpg

#1642911 Leaf drop out of nowhere

Posted by CMJ on 14 July 2019 - 08:33 PM

Good thinking to do that, but what you did for 2 days should take a good 7-10.  I would expect damage from that abrupt a change.

Exactly. It can take up to two weeks for me to harden off in April-May. I imagine it would be even tougher to do it in mid-July...

Don't give up so easily! The same thing happened to me. After cutting the stems back a bit, and moving the pots into the shade for a week or so, they started flushing out new growth, made a complete recovery and went on to produce well that year.

Thanks for the encouragement! Yeah, they have already recovered for the most part. Broke a few branches due to picking pods on dry/brittle plants. Probably should have let them rehydrate a bit before picking....
Other than that, they are doing fine. Pepper plants are pretty resilient, even I cant seem to kill them! [emoji23]

Forgot to post pics. The buckets are the THSC plants. Black grow bag is from Bhuter's seeds!2f236e25f7dcd40d61e60c3f873bd10e.jpg91602923090b18d8726e5e8be1b4662a.jpg94e75622bad4c8253a318ea9a08df7e1.jpge88d72b2e00160529b903a110ec02391.jpg8d0ae1f328772a47f0eb6227cbae91ce.jpg

#1642828 Free Bishop's Crown Seeds

Posted by CMJ on 14 July 2019 - 11:39 AM

My Bishop's Crown that was started from Bhuter's seeds is really starting to show out now! Granted, its in a 55 gallon grow bag and the ones that I got from THSC are in 4 and 5 gallon buckets, so the side-by-side comparison isnt exactly fair. Still, this thing is bushing out nicely and starting to produce lots of sweet pods. I have noticed that these are significantly less spicy than the ones from THSC. I see a large batch of Bishop Crown jelly in the not so distant future. Great plant and pods Bhuter! Thanks again for the seeds!

Finally got a decent pull today. Came home from vacation to find a few dead plants. Apparently somebody forgot to water them while I was gone. Raccoon destroyed one also...
Other than that, most are still plugging along. I think I have enough Aji Fantasy to make a batch of jelly! More pics to come. 0d43ef748258579f197443c644c9d791.jpg

I had just about given up on my seeds germinating. Checked on them yesterday and one sprouted........out of 9 seeds planted. Not sure if it is going to make it or not. These seeds were old, so not a big surprise, but i probably wont start over if these fail. Looks like you guys may have dodged a bullet![emoji23]

#1637399 Supposed to be jalapeno

Posted by CMJ on 14 June 2019 - 02:03 PM

I have had Jalapeños that would melt your face off! Growing some this year with zero heat. You never know what you will get with this variety, so I'd say it is definitely possible[emoji16]

That pic to me doesn't look like the right pod type either, I guess there are different phenos for these.
These seeds actually came from the reddit exchange, and not Baker Creek, I was just using their image. Although this year so far I think most of my seeds from them have been correct, the only thing I can say for sure is the Beni Komada watermelon, the Aji Charpita is looking correct as well. I have a few other things that seem to be correct as well.

Well that's good to know. I sure caused a big fuss about it, maybe they took care of it.

I agree, just looks like a suntan. The SRP is questionable but possible. FWIW I have yet to grow a seed from Baker Creek that turned out to be what it was supposed to be. I ordered over ten varieties a few years ago and not a single one grew true to what I expected.
