I just love your grow area! It's an inspiration ;)
Plants are looking good! But seem to need something.
Are you feeding the gals yet? If not, it's time to. Get some mild liquid nutes and mix it to 1/2 strength and use that the next time you bottom water.

Thanks Devv! I have fed them only 3 times so far. Once back on March 15th with half strength MG 24-8-16, once on March 24th with half strength Jobes 3-1-2 and once on April 12th with Jobes 3-1-2 half strength.

So it's been about 17 days now since they were last fed.

Think I need to feed them more? As I said in previous posts, I used to use MG soil and never had to feed until they went outside. I've never had to use ferts indoors while they were small before, so I am just not sure how much to use and how often.

The local grow shop does have some CNS17 in stock for a good price, so I could try that. Lots of guys on here seem to recommend the CNS17 or Jobes which is why I switched to Jobes from the MG.

Hey all! Long time no post!

Things are coming along slowly, but plants are doing ok. Some are doing well, others still yellowing, dropping leaves and growing slowly. I'm not sure what to do, it's getting pretty frustrating. I think some of my yellowing is still happening from the previous overwatering/edema damage that was already done.

The plants from my 2nd and 3rd batches that were not overwatered are doing much better than the ones from the first batch, so it's likely most of my issues are due to periods of too much water and periods of not enough water. Hopefully it gets better.

So far, I have made the following changes to my setup:

- Raised lights to 16 inches above plants. No stretching, but some are still purpling, so whatever, they can just be purple I guess.
- Lowered grow tent temps to 73F (down from 84F)
- Reduced watering frequency and amount, only watering when almost bone dry top to bottom and only roughly 4oz to 6oz. Still bottom watering, although I did top water today.
- Added 8 inch fan for better airflow
- Reduced light cycle to 16hrs per day (from 18hrs)
- I now let my tap water sit for a few days. I fill a 5 gal bucket and let it sit for a few days before I use it to let the chlorine evaporate.

I think I let them dry out a bit too much a couple weeks ago as some plants yellowed worse and a few leaves on my jalapeno even turned almost white and fell off. Maybe now I'm not watering enough, maybe I'm just over thinking the whole operation, lol.

Anyway, let me know your thoughts.

Here's some pics...

My watering schedule since I started keeping track, the pot up on 4-4-2017 was when I overwatered pretty bad...


CP115 that was never overwatered and is doing great. No edema, no spotting (So far...) and no yellowing.



Jalapeno's with white/yellowing leaves after letting dry out too much I think, jalapenos never had any issues prior to that...



Reaper with this spotting, not growing much either



Both my Bhut Jolokias have wavy leaf edges, spotting and some yellowing...



Sweet banana putting out pods already, 2 or 3 on each plant. This one's about 1.5 inches long


Family pics...



New light hanging setup so I can raise and lower all lights at once... it's soooooooo much better lol...

Very cool. Thanks everyone

Also interesting is the Borg 9 (aka: Bleeding Borg 9), which came to be from 2 other crosses, crossed into one.

Nagalah, is a Naga/Douglah cross.

And obviously the BBG7 as mentioned is the Moruga/Yellow 7 Pot

Then the Nagalah and BBG7 crossed together to make the Borg 9.

I actually have several CPRs and choc primos and a couple choc reapers.
Gonna be a delicious summer.
If I play out this week, I'll snag some pics. Surprised the CPRs are doing so well this year.

Mine are doing well also, I have my 2 keepers picked and also have like 4 extra left over still I think. I'll get some pics tonight also
