wow, what a great garden(s)!!!!   Love the Walmart bag idea.  I just gave a crapload of older ones to my hubby to bring in to use at his work, wish now I had saved them :)

Thanks so much Kim! They work great but they're not as durable as the nice fancy cloth chins bags off Amazon but aside from that I'm thinkin if I can bury them in the ground partway I'll get some root insulation and stabilization as the size of the okra in it is unbelievable!

Empty at the moment save for a few Lil ones for a GDTD but you get the idea, and yes! Shelving I'd say beautiful wonder to utilize vertical space to save horizontal space! I have photo, I believe it'd my profile photo, of it completely loaded and I was able to have like 90-100 medium sized planta covered. 3x 130w quantum boards with a single driver wired in parallel plus a blurple kingbo 50w(30w actual) ufo light for the far ends red and blue spectrums. The boards are a 5000k, 4000k, and a 3000k. The 5000k plus single 120w driver not shown in picture. All run on digital timers and heatpads on certain shelves when needed. Low cost, max efficiency is what I was going for as electricity ain't cheap and I ain't rich! All dimmable as well to save money and acclimate plants.. 317e67641fc11aa7b0f8ee9609193e20.jpg5f53a8063ccc5311911ffd6abe9651fc.jpg5f3b48a2d451c8777506a8e0ac5951a6.jpgIMG_20180424_212354271_HDR.jpg IMG_20180419_184835629.jpg IMG_20180429_201316894.jpg

Lemon drop is starting another flowering round and many pods are already growing on the plant:

Aji cristal have now close to 30 pods hanging around:

Lotta pods and flowers man rock on! Gotta love the simplicity of 1part nutes, especially if they can provide on par or same service as the multi parts-in with you in that the nutes probably aren't the limiting factor as long as basic needs are met but rather environmental and genetic.

20 years ago Early Jalapeno was getting crossed to everything. 10 years ago red savina was getting crossed to everything. 

You've been in the game a while! Awesome!

#1567278 2018 Southern Hemisphere Grow Down-Under

Posted by YAMracer754 on 11 July 2018 - 04:18 PM

Looking good!
Mine will get potted up this weekend. They scared me the other day after I forgot they were in full sun. I'm not using lights as it's full time summer here. They forgave me and survived...

I'm still torn on which is better until they get some true leaf sets rocking.. Indoor with light or outside full sun. I have same situation here where it's kickin out there but I also got lights indoors..

#1567267 Need advice for my Scorpion

Posted by YAMracer754 on 11 July 2018 - 03:57 PM

Looks like multiple deficiencies or perhaps lockout but looks to me is lacking in sulfur or nitrogen/or both.. whether by lockout or lack of availability in the soil due to the complete yellowing of the leaf, veins included. Don't know what your feeding schedule and/or what you've been feeding it as well.. Watering is Clutch (proper watering), and excesses of other nutrients can lock out other micronutrients as well and even macros.
A lot of time people post pics like this but without all the specifics and background can be very hard to diagnose, even if it's your own plant! What is the media, media ph, what have you been feeding it, how long have you had it, etc..?
Doesn't look like a hardening off problem to me though as you would see other things like sunburn, wilt, etc. Definitely a good idea though to move it to partial shade/shade though to slow down photosynthesis and let it show you its true colors, and to slow down nute uptake as it's not going to hurt-only help especially with deficiencies. A shot in the dark without knowing anything about your plant would be to hit it foliar with some Epsom salt (magnesium and sulfur fix), and/or some kelp meal/tea/seaweed fert etc and see how it responds. By foliar you're not aggravating the overwatered situation and can deliver some nutes without disrupting an already slowly transpiring plant due to its issues. Do you have any good liquid fertilizers perhaps?

Welcome back [emoji16]. Looks like everything is blowing up nicely. I’ve had tomatos crack in the past years. I think it’s from over watering, but I could be wrong. I’m trying not to water this years tomatoes as much. My favorite pic is the Walmart grow bag [emoji106]

Hahahaha yeah you should see the size of the okra in it!! It's 'huuuuge' lol! Although there's these shiny beetles that keep eating the leaves and mating on it and I swear they bite everytime I squish em! Plus they fly! 50¢ planters baby! They're not nearly as durable as the Chinese smart pita I got and require more water but hey, use what ya got! Once I had purchased bags and bags and bags and was low on money, had yo do what I gotta do! I had over $150-200 in media alone, not including the nice bags!

Yeah It [tomatoes cracking] has to be inconsistent watering and loss of CEC (nute level) after heavy rains and such and not being able to remove my Drip tray as the plants weigh a lot and sketchy to move by myself, according to my reading the flood of water drops the salt level in the media (CEC) and then water follows the osmotic gradient out of the media and into the plant to balance out the salt levels. I'm being careful now with them and so far so good but taking much more note of my watering on the maters'.. Even ones in the garden. From now on I'll let em get their roots deeper, at least they're trench buried-gonna be interesting at end of season to see some of my root systems.

Really need a compost bin/pile setup just don't know where to get a bin on the free/cheap or if it's safe enough from weedseeds to just start a pile on a tarp?

#1567144 Limited heat mat real estate -- cardboard dividers for cups?

Posted by YAMracer754 on 11 July 2018 - 12:43 AM

Hey there, hope the harvests are going well in the northern hemi! 
 
I've been starting seeds and I'm venturing into familiar territory... limited space indoors. I was wondering whether placing a cardboard separator to divide a cup into two is worth doing. I've done a few plants per cup in the past, but when it got to transplanting the roots had become intertwined and it was a bit of work to get them untangled. Of course, there was some inevitable root damage in the process.
 
Is it worth placing a separator in to prevent root systems becoming entangled, or are peppers robust enough to sustain a bit of root damage on transplanting? 
 
I aim to transplant out in 6 weeks, or even longer, so the root system could still be fairly nascent. 
 
Sure, planting less is an option, but the likelihood of that is ... very low. 
 
 

Use a business card or something of the sort.. You're on the right track of thinkin versus untangling things and in my experience DEFINITELY slowing/stunting the growth rate! I learned the hard way and by separating you're ahead of the curve!

The P.Dreadie is a Scotch Bonnet. What I like about this variety is it is a bit less hot and has more flavor (in my experiences) than the MoA or the plain Scotch Bonnet.
 

Sounds excellent! Where do I start to try it/grow it/etc?
