Haha, yeah it is! I say the same thing as everyone else every year... "next year I'm cutting back for sure..." but it never happens, lol.

I think what I may do this year though, is only keep about 6 varieties that I really like, but keep 10 of each plant, instead of keeping 30 varieties and 2 of each plant. I normally start about 6 trays (432 plants) every season, then pick my keepers, about 60 plants, and give the rest away. 4 trays of Chinense early then 2 more trays with Annuum's and whatever else, later.

This year, I'll be skipping the solo cup stage for my keepers though and going straight from cells to the 1 gallon nursery pots I got last year. I experimented last year and put some in cups and some in the 1 gallon pots. The ones in the one gallon pots grew significantly larger and faster the ones in Solo cups. After seeing the difference last year, I'd go straight to 2 or 3 gallon pots if I had the room, until they went outside into my 5 gallon+ containers.

 

I no longer use the solo cups. I just start them in 3.5" pots and they get moved to the #1 pots pretty quick. For the same reason.

 

And yeah, I started way too many again...I have 30+ in #1 pots already and 36+ still in 3.5's (Annuum's) and then there's the 36 tomatoes. I don't have enough #1 pots for all of them; but I do have 26 open #2 pots. I guess the Chinense in the #1's will go to #2's pretty soon ;)

Congrats on the hooks Dan!

 

So what do you use to lower the Ph in your watering solution? Mines way high (8.0).

If you continue to use mylar...I buy the cheapo mylar wrapping "paper"? at the dollar store. The backing is the side you would want to use. A dollar a roll can't be beat ;)

Great start Scott.. you are certainly off to an early season ... wishing you all the very best my friend

 

Thanks John!

 

Early start early end here; I'll not run them 12 months this year. Grab and go with whatever I get by July. If I wait then it's November...

 

Good luck this year!

Music to my ears, buddy.  You will probably have the first pods

of the 2018 season and then we can see what will be!

 

I'm looking forward to seeing what we get here :shh:

 

I have the PDN crosses and a true PDN growing; I see the Bonda Influence already. A shorter plant with a thicker stem; and not as purple as a true BDN.

Wow!

 

'Yall are just too hi-tech for me. I'm using T8's and T5's. Are the LED's really worth it.

 

Please say no. If I buy new lights the wife will want yet more kitchen hardware ;)
