#1634110 If It Wernt For Bad Luck...

Thanks Orekoc, I may have spoken a little soon. When I went out a min ago there were more little sprouts. Im starting them in the expanded net pots and put them in a cold frame (my truck) at night. I have jalapeño, Serrano chili, Cayenne and Banana peppers.

Im using those bottomless buckets too. I got a bunch of good dirt from an old downed tree. Those look good. Squirrels will be a battle for sure. I got a self watering bucket planted today. Ive a pack of old seeds that are Banana Peppers, I thought were jalapeno. Those look like monster peppers hanging up.

Hey junglejoe, I feel for you with the weather and critters. Im not new to gardening but havent in ten yrs. I live on a slope thats compacted and due to a bad back Im having to do containers. Ive got limited knowledge of peppers having done cayenne,jalapeño Bell. Maybe one or two more. Im stoked to try this Reaper tho. I havent found any seeds locally so Im going to order some. I hope they will keep as I only need a few. I got some other peppers that should be saying hello any day now. Im getting a late start. I hope it gets better there soon.

Im new to a lot of these peppers and really interested in growing Reaper plants as well. Great posts OP.

Welcome, this is a resourceful forum for sure.

I meant to mention that Im sort of the opposite. I cant take much heat but I enjoy the flavor of say, a mild salsa. I hope to learn how to make that here as well.

Posted by deadhead on 17 May 2019 - 10:23 AM

Thanks again. Ive just been thinking that it would be a pain to redo these things because of something that I was missing but Ive looked everywhere and nothing says it must be in the middle. Ive got this Earthbox and the wicks are to the side so it should work. Im looking forward to seeing the results.

Im making the 5 gal bucket ones and my hold up is wondering if I can move the wick pot off Center a bit. 3 - 11.3oz coffee cans (plastic) fit great in the bottom for screen support and I want to use one as a wick and avoid having to cut the center hole. Is this workable? Thank you for your reply.

The critters are a lot to content with here in SC too. It looks like you are doing a great job.

Im doing all containers this year and Im making some from totes and 5gal buckets. Are there any problems with peppers in these? Ive bough one Earthbox and plan on a couple more as well. I was wondering if there was anyone using these. Thanks

This is a nice place. Im an avid gardener and love growing peppers but a bit of a wimp when it comes to heat. I look forward to hopefully learning something about growing in containers. Thanks
