In Topic: Help with growing Carolina Reaper and Moruga Scorpion

28 January 2018 - 06:10 PM

So I have some new information.  I check the media I was using and it turns out, I thought it was seedling media but it was potting/garden media.  So that may be part of the problem.  The second thing I found was that I bought a PH testing kit.  The soil I was using was PH 6.0.  Is that too acidic?

 

I went a head a bought some Jiffy seedling media which looks better.  I tested it just to see the results and ended up with 6.5 ph.  So I started a new batch of seeds.  I did a few using the paper towel method and a few traditional in the media.  Hopefully this will help out.

 

Thanks for everyones input and help.

I think what I am going to do is run to the store after work and get a ph tester and some other brand of seedling soil and see if maybe that will help out.  I order some more CR and Scorp seeds that should arrive around Monday.  Maybe there is something wrong with the PH that I can diagnose or maybe I have some bad soil.

How long did you wait before you decided they were duds in the soil?  Last year, I had a hotter variety that didnt sprout for like 3 weeks.  I thought they were duds because everything else sprouted and I almost threw them out, but then all of the sudden they took off.

 

2-3 months.  I started them early November and they are still in the pots and have never sprouted.  I have no gotta rid fo them for hope they might suddenly sprout.

You keep saying soil, do you mean outside garden soil or potting media? Garden soil at room temp is not the best seed starting method.

Yeah, may be using the wrong term.  Potting soil/ seed starting soil.  I forget brand and type and I am at work where I cant see it.  But its not garden soil, its soil intended to start seeds in pots.


In Topic: Help!!! How to remove seed hull

30 December 2017 - 10:09 PM

Thanks for both responses.  I let a water drop sit on the hull for about 45 minutes.  With tweezers and a needle I was able to remove the hull.  The leaves I am not sure if they are viable or not.  They dont look healthy but they dont look dead either.  I put it under my light and hopefully it will pull through.

 

I appreciate your help.
