The Hippy Seed Co sauce and stuff

24 August 2018 - 04:08 PM

Hi all,


I am sure most of you know of The Hippy Seed Company in Australia, I have read on here about how they are one of the reputable and trusted seed sellers. I am not sure if many of you people living o/seas have tried any of their sauces and stuff.


I recently bought some and thought I would share my thoughts on them. First time buying anything other than seeds from them myself.


I have no connection to them other than being a customer.



What I bought.


The Hot Chilli Pack


     1 x bottle of Skobiyan F*****g Hot Chilli Sauce

     1 x bottle of Yellow 7 Turkey Slap Hot Sauce

     1 x jar of Yellow 7 The Jam

     1 x packet if Ring Stinger Reaper Banana Bombs



I also bought a packet of Yellow 7 The Salt.

I have tried some of them now, and as I get around to trying some more I will share.

How odd

14 August 2018 - 02:25 AM

In my view unread posts feed, this thread is listed and I thought I would have a look






For some reason it won't let me post a screenshot of it


It is the "Indoor pequins" thread, and when I look at it the last post was in 2007.


How odd.

What is causing this yellowing?

22 June 2018 - 08:08 AM

Sorry if it is a noob question, or has been answered elsewhere before.


I have started growing some plants in a grow tent (is winter here) and over the last couple of days have noticed that some of the lower leaves of one type have started going yellow.

I am not sure what is causing it.


I water them 2 or 3 times a week and feed them half strength Charlie Carp once a week.


Am I doing something wrong? What should I do to fix it?


All input appreciated.

I thought I would give this grow log thing a go.


It is winter here now, so I have bought a grow tent and some lights and will try and keep some plants alive until I can get them outside once it warms up again. Keeping them alive may be a big ask because inside my house has historically been where plants go to die.


Anyway, a while ago I bought some seeds from ebay, before I had any idea about ebay seed sellers. Since then I have done some searching on this seller, and he seems legit. Also sells through a website. I guess only time will tell if the seeds I got are the ones that I wanted.


So, I decided to plant some chilli cha cha (from the ebay seller) and some orange habs harvested from my plants last season. I chose these because I figured it would be no great loss if they didn't survive, the ebay seeds because they are ebay seeds, and the habs because I have heaps of them. I will be planting some Aji Cito later in the month as well.


So I put some seeds in jiffy pellets and had 100% germination rate. The cha cha within days, but the habs took a little longer.


They have since been transplanted into small pots.


They are only little at the moment but they look pretty healthy to me.


Chilli cha cha.

Should I cut it back more or not? - Over wintering

18 May 2018 - 12:13 AM

With the weather here getting colder my plants have stopped producing pods, so I have cut them back to put them into a dormant state to over winter them.


More of an experiment than anything to see if they will survive out doors over winter.


I have put them under a shade cloth area in the yard to try to keep the frost off of them, but they still get probably 12 hours of filtered sunlight through the shade cloth each day.


The temps here at the moment are around 15 - 25°C during most days, and around 5°C at night. They will drop from that during winter to 10 - 15°C days and down to 0°c nights, possibly but not often they will drop below 0 overnight.



The thing is, that of the 3 plants that I cut back, 2 x orange habs and a Hungarian wax pepper, 2 seem to be dormant but one of the habs has started growing again.


All 3 are kept in the same conditions.


The hab that is growing has all new leaf growth, even has flowers and some stunted little pods on it.


Should I cut this one back again to effectively over winter it, or should I just let it go and see what happens?


Will letting it grow affect it in the colder weather, or will it be fine without interference?
