That first flower , always a thing of beauty!


Mine still going against the flow here , deciding to be a bush and not a tree. With a side branch at every single leaf.





Looking very nice!


Personally, I'll take bushy over tall any day...

Question for general consensus:


Does the forking, flowering, etc, have to all be the same plant?


I'm happy to say it doesn't. No locking in plants until harvests is my vote. 


And yeah, i'll say that a flower.


So, unless vote causes revision, 90 and 90 to KAOS! well done!

#1491049 TBG's First Chilli Blitz! (2017-18)

Posted by ThatBlondGuy101 on 13 September 2017 - 02:57 AM

So much for pictures in the next few days. :rolleyes:


Weather this week has been bloody brilliant, range between 18-27, which is pretty good for this time of year. So i decided to start hardening off the plants, with all the solo cup plants having a fun time in the shade. From the shade, its into the dappled shade, and then into the greenhouse, and then into the ground! Or so the theory goes...

Sowing? All done, hopefully, only two varieties left to germinate, but I'll resow if they don't. Corno Di Toro Rosso was a flop, with 0/2, so chucked in some Big Jims instead. All that's left is Aji Pineapple, of which I have plenty of seed to spare, and Red 7 Pot Jonah, of which I have none. But fear not! I plan to sow some Bleeding Borgs in the case of Jonah not showing up (he might be trapped in a whale?)


And all the plants are looking ship-shape, well, almost. I can't complain about how they're going, and don't think I need to. There's now 21 solo plants, with room for more. And 56 Jiffy pellets. Not sure how many more I can cram in...


But, I have lined up a secure and reliable source of relief from my excess plants. As I have said from the start, I only plan to have one of each variety, with a few more of crosses and whatnot. But I have been growing two of each, in case of failure. But so far, there haven't been any non-germination failures. So I've got plants to give away. 


If there's anyone who wants some, I've got double of pretty much everything on my grow list, so if you want to come pick up some free plants, be my guest! obviously wouldn't be convenient for non-NSW folk, or even most NSW folk. But anyway, PM me if you're interested, but you'll only have a week from today to arrange it, otherwise stock may be unavailable.  


And keep your heads up for my giveaway, as soon as these last few seeds germinate, s**ts gonna be crazy!












Stay tuned.......

Posted by ThatBlondGuy101 on 12 September 2017 - 05:40 AM

Well! I had a bit of catching up to do, somehow missed your glog since July?!?! 



But my, oh my!



FANTASTIC! Absolutely stunning stuff going on here! You ought to be very proud of yourself for such a bountiful grow, and a glog to match.


Those pods - HUGE! How do you do it? 

And the harvests - EVEN HUGER!!!!! (If huger (as in more huge) is even a word)


Amazing stuff, there's too much to go into details, but yeah, f***ing fabulous!


Keep it up, and I'll try to keep up myself :D

#1490759 D3 2017 Keeping it mild.

Posted by ThatBlondGuy101 on 12 September 2017 - 05:22 AM

Killer harvests!


Great variety of pods, the crosses are looking very good as well, but variety is a kinda heaven/hell combo when it comes to crosses, no? It gives you a lot of options, but makes it all very complicated.... But you do well, very well!


Keep it up! And good work all round!

I'll stop you when you start weighing in without pics! :onfire:


Oh yeah, that reminds me, I weighed in 3 lots so far, 240g, 370g and 820g. :woohoo:























:rofl: Not really, if you hadn't realised from the start :D

#1490757 D3monic's Crossing Project/Community Grow

Posted by ThatBlondGuy101 on 12 September 2017 - 05:13 AM

All looking good.


My front is still under lights, mostly in Jiffys, but a few now getting their feet into solo cups. The season for hardening off is in the next few weeks. 

Depending on growth, I should have fruit by January, probably late December. So if any interesting new phenos crop up, I should be able to get seeds away in time for the northern sowings.


I've finished sowing, and had very good rates on most of the crosses,  8/8 on 7pot Burg X CGN21500 and on Devil's Prick, 6/9 on El Scorp, but only 4/12 on Painapple, although it could possibly become 6/12, but doubt it. All were done the same, and my overall average rate is 9/10, so I think its more genetic than conditional.

Just thought you might be interested.



Keep up the good stuff, hopefully I get some action down under!

Congrats on your fair works!


Very well deserved!


All those harvests are making me mighty keen for Summer!

Posted by ThatBlondGuy101 on 12 September 2017 - 04:48 AM

Very nice all round!


Today the weather was mighty fine, so I decided to start hardening off my plants, including the Amarillos. The fortnightly feeds of 1/4 strength fish emulsion look to be paying off, its up and out from here on!


Unfortunately, no pics, camera needs battery replacement and haven't got around to it yet.


:pics: Is going to come into play I think.... :rofl:
