In Topic: growing contest for heaviest pepper

I think I won the contest.

Look at this baby:)

It's a goliath pepper.

There are several big peppers on the plant, but this is the biggest one so far.


And this is the super heavy weight pepper:

There is also an elongated bell pepper and a broad bell ppepper on the same super heavy weight pepper plant...it's a weird plant. 




Here are heavier Goliath peppers.

There is one super heavy weight pepper that might become even heavier.



And this is the heaviest of the two:



Holy smokes these are huge!

Hey mate, I'd be keen to hop on board. Hope I haven't missed the boat, er... train. I've got a few I'd like to share! I'm in Northcote, VIC. 

In Topic: Hello from Melbourne

Hi there! Welcome :) This is my first season overwintering in Melbourne too. Planning on starting a bonsai, and grafting a few of my favourites.

The number one priority for me is ensuring I don't bring any aphids in, as I've had a few minor outbreaks outside -- washing and neem oil should do the trick.

Great to see another local on the forum, if you're keen on trading seeds drop me a line, I'm always looking to try new stuff. 

In Topic: Can you help explain this stem narrowing/constriction?

Just an update... I think I have another explanation for the stem constriction. So I was starting to harden off some seedlings and was planning on leaving my seedlings out for just 30 minutes because the sun was quite hot today. Stupidly I forgot about them and this exact thing happened, only much more severe in many cases. All my seedlings were in very good shape before, definitely no signs of dampening off, so I think it might be safe to say this might have been what happened last time.
