I'll do the picture update when I get a chance, but for now here is the leader board and my winter weigh in.

 

Welcome to all new weigh ins and hurrah to Devv for breaking 1kg

 

If I've missed someone or forgotten to add a weigh in let me know

Still going pretty slow for some reason.

 

Last year I used a custom mix and this year I'm trying a good quality soil with perlite added.

Growth this year not as good for sure.

 

First photo is one of the Citos

Second photo is a MOA Scotch Bonnet - Do you think it's sunburn perhaps (I have a number of different varieties doing the same thing).

I got plenty seeds left, but postage is going to add 2-4 weeks to that start.

 

Can I shout out to AUS contestants who have spare seeds to send to Aussimax ?

 

If there are none available I will get into post early next week.

Smashing it Jaques.

 

Mine are just not growing as fast this year. Must be the soil I'm using. Either that or I need to go buy some more earthworm castings.

Maybe because it's the middle of winter?!

 

Might be temperature ???

 

Bumped up the grow tent to 24 degrees to give it a boost, but I must just watch out for humidity.

I'd be keen to see progress on those Reapers.

 

You may have little visual progress in such big containers, but all the business will be happening under the soil.

 

↑↑↑ - You might find a sudden boom in growth as soon as the roots have "grown" into their containers

Finally got round to tidying up the 2540 build with the new 60W drivers.

Using 165W from the socket at pf 0.98 and generating 15000 lux at 50cm.

Temps are 32deg C after 15min so I’m happy there’s some breathing space.

Some good looking seedlings there guys. Mine are doing their own weird thing and Im thinking some winter sunshine will give them a boost.

Can’t remember what leaves pointing up means, but last year I had it was when plants were too close to the light source. Dropped them down a bit and they were fine.

I wouldn’t have thought my led I’m using would do this tbh. Might just swap out 230W unit with 120W and see what happens.

Anyway here’s my update for this week.
