About Me

I started getting really into growing different kinds of plants when I was in between jobs (right around 2008) and eventually fell into growing almost exclusively hot peppers. Part of what kept me going was the community on THP. I really enjoyed learning, keeping up with what everyone was doing, sharing seeds, seeing progress, and so on. Originally, I started off growing a purple ornamental pepper, then in 2010 had my first bhut/naga-type pepper and fell in love right away.

Since then I've grown many superhots, ornamentals, wilds and have made a bunch of crosses. In 2011 I got my basic growing technique down and made my first crosses. In 2012 I grew over 60 different varieties and continued making crosses. In 2013 I started fewer varieties and brought some overwinters from 2012 to fruit.  I also grew out and made a few new crosses in 2013.

 

In 2014 I grew mostly bhut/naga types.  I also had a few overwinters and a special cross I'm working on :cool: .

 

In 2015 I focused again on bhuts plus a select few seven pod varieties (Moruga & Douglah).

 

In 2016 I continued with my focus on Bhuts and a handful of my unique crosses.

 

In 2017 and 2018 I narrowed down my grow to fewer plants, focusing on a particular bhut cross I developed as well as a few C. galapagoense plants and crosses. For the first time in many years I am planning to grow absolutely nothing in 2019. Growing peppers (and other plants) has helped to keep me grounded through a lot of turmoil in my own life, but I've recently completed a major step (finished my PhD), and have been winding down my activity on THP for some time. Good luck and happy growing! (edited Sunday, August 18, 2018).
