#1478822 TBG's First Chilli Blitz! (2017-18)

Posted by ThatBlondGuy101 on 27 July 2017 - 04:45 AM

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:


#1478820 2017 Inaugural Southern Hemisphere Growdown Throwdown Aji Amarillo

Posted by ThatBlondGuy101 on 27 July 2017 - 04:25 AM

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!

#1478684 Pepper Worries SOS... lol

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!

Everyone's looking good!

Don't have a pic of mine, but rolling along.

Good to see Karoo starting! :party:

Only just realised that it was the first month into the comp the other day :woohoo:

All the best!

Aha, good to hear the train is still rolling.

And no need to thank me, all I did was figure out who is closest to who, and started this thread.

But thanks anyway :onfire:

Damn, too bad about that El Scorponero, it looks killer!

Keep up the good work!

#1477681 2017 Inaugural Southern Hemisphere Growdown Throwdown Aji Amarillo

Gosh, you're keen!


Mine is still chugging along slowly, very slowly. Seems healthy though, so not complaining.

Hello Again!


Quick update with pics!


The Unknown seedling (Bahamian Goat/Scotch Bonnet X ???) is definitely purple:



All the others are cruising along nicely


Some are starting on their fist true leaves (Red Bhut here)


I've had a few more germinate, most excitably the Jay's Peach G.S, which germinated yesterday afternoon (pic taken this morning)

:woohoo: :onfire: :party:
I transplanted Amarillo No. 3 the other day, here he is with No. 1 and Ebony Fire:

No. 2 was a tiny bit slower growing than No. 3, and had some growth in its pellet:

So I figured that, out of the two of them, it was the one to say good-bye to.
No. 1 is chugging along slowly, which I suppose is a good thing, because if it grows too fast I won't have any where to put it!
I've noticed that there is a much shorter growth habit for the seedlings that spent their whole lives so far in the box, compared to the Amarillos, which sat on a windowsill for a few days. I think that's a good sign....
Not much else to say at the moment, ran out of Jiffy pellets, so i'm not sowing until i get my hands on some more (should happen this week)
Also want to get a small fan to put in the box, I think that should prevent any more unwanted growth (the mould type)
Happy Weekend to all, and thanks again for hanging around!

Love that little purple guy




Keep up the good work TBG.

Looking great




That little purple guy is becoming very interesting very quickly...

The Goat/Bonnet plot thickens!
It appears that the seedling is developing purple foliage!
I really doubt that it's a labeling issue, so I think that it may be a cross. I got it in the seed train knowing that it was probably open-poll, so I'm more excited than disappointed.  After all. who doesn't love a mysterious cross?
But fortunately, I kept track of who added which of the seeds to the train that I took, so I know who to talk to. They may be able to shed some light on what exactly I have growing here!
Either way, this grow is getting quite more interesting than I envisioned - who knows what other crosses are hiding amongst the ranks of seedlings???
Also had Scotch Brain and White Fatalii germinate today, both the Fatalii's germinated in 9 days, giving that variety the quickest average so far! (Aji Amarillo was also 9 days, but had 7,9&11 so Fatalii is more consistent and gets the prize)
No more roots yet, but hooks are popping up here and there.
I also realised that I haven't yet posted an official grow list, or my proposed one anyway. There was a vague one at the start, but I've got it all figured out now, so here goes:

#1476863 Tabasco Scorpion

Posted by ThatBlondGuy101 on 20 July 2017 - 03:28 AM

Anyone else disappointed to see that this isn't a Scorpion X Tabasco pepper?!?!




Thought the same thing.


Interesting idea though, might give it a whirl this season... growing both so why not?

#1476560 Bike808's first GLOG

Posted by ThatBlondGuy101 on 19 July 2017 - 04:38 AM

This is a bloody great glog, and has been from the start.

Probably the most relatable one for me yet (even though I only started my first decent grow three weeks ago) I'm hearing ya on every level man!


Glad to see you've got some pods starting to roll in, judging by those flower pics, you'll be inundated in no time! ;)


Keep up the good work - you've really earnt everything you reap! (+ more) :dance:

#1476558 Superhot showdown

Posted by ThatBlondGuy101 on 19 July 2017 - 04:18 AM

Here's another hint lol-->(it's a Burgundy BBG). From my friend Martin in La Puente. I have a lot of his stock in this roof grow.


Haha! I believe that BBG's are a strain of 7 pot? (Hence BBG7 as they are sometimes called)


In that case, I win! :party:


When will my $1,000,000 check arrive?????





Got any more pics? I'm keen to see how the plants have progressed (the ones that have survived, anyway)

#1476556 TBG's First Chilli Blitz! (2017-18)

Posted by ThatBlondGuy101 on 19 July 2017 - 04:08 AM

Okay, its time for some more pics!

Here's all the seedlings in Jiffy's so far, all at different stages of maturity.

A2/A3 - Aji Amarillo
1 -  Carolina Reaper
2 - Choc 7 Pot (very small for some reason)
3 - Purple Naga Viper
4 - Bahamian Goat (one of 'em is anyway)
5 - Bhut Jolokia Red
6 - MoA Scotch Bonnet (or B.G)
They're all coming along nicely, no hiccups yet!
Also got a few more on the way, plus those in the incubator

I've also sown some Trinidad Moruga Scorpion, (and some Aji Painapple for D3)
The two plants in cups:

Amarillo on right, Ebony Fire on left.
Noticed something strange with the Ebony Fire...

The leaves seem to have fused... not sure whether to be stoked or concerned.
EDIT: It also had a triple cotyl, forgot to mention it so far! :oops:
If it is a fatal flaw, it will be sad to see it go, but my grow would be happier for the freed up space!
I've been looking at my options in the coming months, for when I inevitably cull my grow (hopefully I don't have to cull any entire varieties).
I have two friends who are into chillies, and will probably be able to offload quite a few plants onto them. I also have a few more friends and family who I think I can talk into taking a few plants.
If that doesn't do it, I'll advertise around town that I'm giving away plants, and hopefully some interested people come knocking!
The only problem is that, until mid-august, folks will need the facilities to grow indoors if they want to, because its too damn cold around here! Even after mid-august folks will need a greenhouse until mid-september... but hey, that ain't for a while yet!
Its been good to have you stop by, I think I've said it before, but it really brightens my day to know that people are actually following my glog! Keep the feedback rolling, I wouldn't be anywhere if it weren't for the advice, tips, tricks and help from everyone on this forum!
What a great place to be! :party:
That's all for now, thanks for the good vibes!
