#1625924 Southern Hemisphere Growdown 2019 - Proposal

Posted by KAOS on 13 April 2019 - 10:46 PM

I'm keen. Maybe stick to a specific pepper type (Carolina Reaper seeds are common enough these days).


Too many variations on Reaper to make it level playing field. Could look at an SHU entry level - say 200k. That way fast growing and really big varieties are almost entirely excluded.

So would coco and nutes to raise seedling be ok?


As long as there is no moving parts (pumps / air stones / etc) I would say all ok. Final growing medium either Kratky or soil.

Learnt a bit this year again so should be more competitive next season.

Damn that's neck and neck with Karoo. Only 13g difference

 

I got some ripe fruit coming on soon, but went though a weird dormant stage.

 

I'll prob update during the week with a weigh in.




#1617921 Southern Hemisphere Growdown 2019 - Proposal

Posted by KAOS on 06 March 2019 - 01:02 PM

So we getting to the last couple of months of 2018 growdown and time to think about what we can do next.

 

My proposal for this year is simple. Anything variety is game (except Annuum) and it has to be grown using 40l of soil or less (no hydro)

 

Points based on total weigh in and number of pods (maths to follow)

 

That way seeds become irrelevant (we all have something stuck away) and it will all be down to variety chosen and soil used

 

Any other ideas from those keen?

Hi Paul

 

If it's the weird green one with a stinger pointing west then it's a Reaper from a hardware store. Never know what you gonna get so it could be something else ...

Sorry for no update but time always short ... except to do some gardening.

Garden is cranking along nicely and weather has been real good this side.

Photos from last couple of weeks

#1613121 LED Shop Light 135 Watts (Ghetto Build)

Posted by KAOS on 13 February 2019 - 01:10 PM

My guess is that you will hook that up to your psu and the lights will blow. The driver is a constant current device so limits the total power going to the LEDS where the psu is only limited by its capacity.

 

Nice setup though

Can anyone help identify these peppers? They were sent to me labeled "Viper or Reaper" by @KAOS.

 

The main feature of two of the three is the red line down the stem of the plant.

 

Not sure Tim. Mighty big leaves on some of those photos.

 

Don't remember having anything viper in the collection if that helps
