Topics I've Started

unintentional cross

12 October 2018 - 04:02 PM

So I have red habaneros and yellow scotch bonnets, which have been doing well all year. Today, I went to pick what is ripe, and I noticed some bonnets on a plant that was yellow, but now they are red like the habs that grew along-side.  Thinking there was some monkey-business here, or just a divine plan.  Pics are red Habs, yellow Bonnets, and the love children??

Bugs getting Tough

So last week I had my Poblano plant ravaged by a Tomato Horn Worm.  Not totally unexpected.  This week, a pair of these bastards got into my habaneros.  Caught one it the act.  While I commend them on their choice of taste, they must and will die....

Leaf issues with Habaneros and Scotch Bonnets

10 April 2018 - 06:31 PM

I have had leaf spot, yellowing, and leaf drop on several species recently.  Have not been letting them get over-watered, but as the weather warmed up, the older leaves started to develop these brown spots, browning on the leaf tip, and yellowing, and eventually they fall off.  Consequently, new healthy growth starts from the apex (armpit) at each node.  I m wondering if this is just normal?


I transplanted into fresh potting soil (Miracle Grow), but refrain from adding additional nutrients, but I did apply daconil for fungus once.  did not seem to be detrimental.  We've had a lot of rain in the past two days, but I put everything back in the garage to avoid drowning them.  Hoping things will acclimate to the larger containers, and we'll get back outside just n time for the bugs to attack.


Any advice or observations are certainly welcomed.


Translucent Leaf spots developing on older leaves of younger plants

29 March 2018 - 10:58 AM

Good Day (wherever you may be):


I have some relatively young Red Bhuts I purchased from a local (HD) store.  They were in peat pots, soaked to the bone, but looked great.  I transplanted them out of the peat pots into a Miracle Grow potting mix, nothing else, and kept them inside the garage for a few cool days we had down here.  The weather has begun to warm into the mid 80's, and I have not been giving them as much water as I suspect HD had been.  I am seeing new growth in the top and at the lower nodes of older leaves, but the older leaves have been developing some translucent (transparent) spots in the past 2 days.  I see no visible evidence of pests, and have not soaked them with water.  Pictures are attached.


Granted they are still "recent transplants:


1. Have I shocked them?


2. Is the change in temperature and sun too much this soon?


3. I cannot imagine a sudden nutrient deficiency this soon, with such a little plant.  I seriously doubt they do much fertilization at HD.(?)


4.  Possible fungal deal?  Not showing on any other varieties.  Could treat but reluctant with them still transitioning into the larger pots.
