Excellent start TBG ! Wonderful germination pics !
I only germinate in soil , so I have to wait for the hooks.

Thanks karoo! Glad to have you stop by!

Yeah, I'm really liking being able to see the seeds before they germinate, so I can tell if they are duds, and when they root I know that it'll only be a matter of days before I see hooks, and then -pop!-

There seems to be something about updating my glog having an effect on the plants, because every time I update, there's a new bout of hooks, roots, etc.
Last night, after posting my last update, I checked on the seeds, only to discover roots from more Painapple's and a Trinidad Moruga Scorpion, as well as a hook from something I can't remember right now. So maybe I should update more often? :rofl:

Hopefully I'll have another germ tonight or tomorrow!

Okay, time for an update with pics!


First up, the first Aji Amarillo seems to be putting out some lateral growth

Which seems to bit weird for its age, but I'm no expert.
Here's a blurry pic of it: (taken today)

I've been measuring it a bit to make sure its growing, and it gained 8mm over the last 3 days, so that's a good sign.
All the other seedlings are also coming along nicely:
Reaper is starting to see some leaves:

And the "Purple Goat Bonnet" is very purple.

No new germs, but here's a photo of the Aji Painapple from the other day:

Since then I've had a Scotch Brain shoot as well. Also sown some P.Dreadie's and more CARDI Scorpion's. The current Scorp. seeds don't look too good, so I'm bringing in backup for them.
And that's about everything! Thanks again (again) for stopping by, please drop in any comment, questions or concerns!
All The Best, TBG. :dance:

Okay, here's a pic:

It's definitely growing; I measured it three days ago and it was 30mm, today it is 38. So its doing its thing.
Also got some weird growth coming out of the leaf axles: 

At first I thought it was aphids, but nope, its growth. Anyone else having similar?
Five weeks old today! :party:
And thanks Devv and Guru, its good to have some outsiders drop by!

I don't think there's too much to worry about, the supers usually take longer, as mentioned above.

P.S you're gonna love it here!
