Regulations on Powders/Pepper Flakes

26 February 2013 - 07:39 PM

Hi All,

I was at a farmer's market this past weekend and there was a vendor selling both powders and pepper flakes. I bought a few items (haven't tried any yet) but then I starting thinking about if this guy had to go through any regulations to sell the products I bought.

Anyone know if there are rules/regulations on selling powders/pepper flakes? I just hope this guy runs a sanitary operation!

Freezing Potting Soil

31 January 2013 - 09:45 PM

Does anyone freeze their potting soil before using it to kill off any pests? I tried it a couple weeks ago before planting and I think it may have eliminated my spider mite issue that I constantly have in the early sprouting stages. It's still too early to tell whether it was effective, but I was just curious if anyone has experience doing this and if it actually kills off all the little creatures that come in Miracle Gro potting soil. Thanks for any other advice.

"Chili Red" from Bonnies

19 June 2012 - 06:07 PM

Hi Everyone,
First of all, sorry for not uploading a picture (the pepper is not quite ripe yet so I want to wait until that happens) but I was wondering if anyone has grown the "Chili Red" variety from Bonnies Plants. I believe this is a hybrid of some sort but is there really an official pepper variety called "Chili Red"?

For those who have grown the Chili Red from Bonnies before, what does the taste/heat level compare to? Thanks.

Baker's Peppers

I realize Dale is a member here, but I still wanted to provide a review of a recent purchase I made from him. I was nervous about ordering live plants, but Baker's Peppers delivered a great product! I thought I'd start a review of Baker''s Peppers to provide other members with some reassurance about ordering live plants.

I purchased four live plants (two TS Morugas and two Butch Ts). All four arrived healthy and I even received some free seeds as well (7 Pod crossed with Naga Viper). I was very pleased with my order and would definitely do it again. Below are some pictures of the plants/seeds.

Amount of Grow Light Time Per Day

19 January 2012 - 09:24 PM

Hello Everyone,

I'm currently using a grow light to help my seeds germinate (they are in potting mix in red solo cups) and was wondering how long all of the indoor growers out there have their lights on per day? The light basically serves as the heat source for keeping the soil temps warm enough for germination. Right now I'm going 18 hours on and 6 hours off, but thinking about going 24/7 until I start seeing hooks. For those of you who have had success starting your seeds under grow lights, what do you recommend for amount of light per day? Should I go 24/7 until I see them break through the soil and then switch to 18/6?
