Cool/funny/interesting/epic/best Names For Peppers

21 November 2017 - 03:44 AM

So, I've seen suggestions/comments/ideas/thoughts on this here, there and everywhere, so why not have a thread for it?


So what's a good name? Lets here them!



I'll start off with one I've mentioned before:


                                                                             The Andromeda Strain.



I'd imagine the plant would have very black foliage with small white pods, like stars in the sky, sorta. But it would be killer hot.

Powder Loses Strength Over Time?

09 October 2017 - 11:13 PM

Does chilli powder tend to lose its strength over time?


We're talking about 6 months, or thereabouts. 


I feel like the powder isn't as hot as it first was, is it losing its potency, or am I just getting more heat resistant?


Thanks, TBG.


BTW, Powder in question is made from a mix of super hots and birds. Just in case you were wondering...

(Wanted) Your wisdom on crossing?

08 October 2017 - 03:15 AM


Been looking around here, and around Google, at some literature concerning the crossing of chilli peppers.

So I was wondering where you guys get your info from, or have recorded your wisdom?

Just want to make sure I don't miss out on any important or interesting stuff!

Cheers, TBG.

Dark Patches on leaves? Is this okay?

02 October 2017 - 11:52 PM

The title speaks for itself. The plant is Cayenne X Bhut, so I don't think it's foliage is meant to be black/purple. I have two plants of that variety/cross, but only one has the patches. Any way, here's the photos.


So, should I be concerned? It's the only plant behaving this way, hasnt had any pests that I know of. It's about 8 weeks old, spent in jiffy until about a week ago. The patches developed while in jiffy pellet in close proximity to other plants. No other plants show visible signs, nor does other plant of same variety.

That's about all the info I've got to it, ask any questions and I'll try to answer them. Just want to know.if I should be concerned. Thanks, TBG
