Part time factory worker in a chemical place, secondary occupation is a gardener
Growing various plants, kettlebell training/bodyweight training, cycling and metal detecting.
Single man with outgoing personality and also have well defined sarcastic sense of humor, that can either make people hate me or like me, there is no middle ground with the personality i have and like to talk to people about various interesting things to gain/give a lot of knowledge to other people.
Lot of people have tried to change my personality over the years, but cant change something that is me, so either try to deal with it or leave me be as i dont like people that try to be something they are not.
If you are planning to use that Hesi coco stuff in a pure coco coir growing perhaps even next year, then getting some form of calmag suppliment would be a wise thing to get.
Hesi coco contains:
Those values will not take you far in pure coco coir growing if rainwater is used in the growing, but using tapwater might be another thing all together.
But if you want to have more painless and worry free coco coir growing using either rainwater or tapwater next year, i would advise using something a bit better for coco coir that have all the much needed nutrients for chili growing and you would not need to add anything more to the mix like that calmag.
Someone have grown chili plant in 100% composted horse manure with good success, so it is no wonder they are doing fine in 100% composted cow manure too. Now put that shit in the box and start growing some plants.
Thse values i found from the net, NPK Values of Animal Manures:
Looking good. I moved a branch the other day and I guess there was a wasp up under there. It hurt bad enough that for a minute I was wondering if I was allergic to them. Lol. It went away after a few minutes.
Wasps are numerous in this time of the year, because they are bringing food on the table for the small ones and i will benefit from it in the end too.
I must say the season have been pretty much the best i have ever seen as weather goes, lot of sun and very little rain:
Hot paper lantern have one of two pods hanging from the plant:
Both naga morich plants are pushing a lot of pods:
Both Petenero plants finally started doing pods, but late pod making is not a good one to have in my growing place:
The shape of the Aji erotica pod is all wrong and the color is not right, i guess it is one of those failed commercial hybrids:
I hope the taste of the pod is not a failure too.
Next year i was hoping to have one less aji plant, way too much to have six aji plants in one side alone:
Aji cristal is pushing many pods now:
Aji golden is doing it's best to grow towards the roof of the greenhouse:
I have lately noticed that one or two wasps have taken an interest towards pollunating my c.chinense plants, i do not like wasps that much but we can get along as long as it wont sting me.
I am also pretty much done with these different fertilizer tests, as it is not going to lead me anywhere but create more frustration, from now on i will use the ones that work well for me and are fairly priced, like the B'cuzz coco a+b for example.
I wouldn't count on a pepper to ripen once it's picked. They're not tomatoes...
They do ripen if you pick them up when they are starting to change color to the final one. I often pick those early c.baccatum pods, when they are almost ripe to refocus the plants energy and put them somewhere warm for several days to ripen. But still peppers are not tomatoes in that regard, but they do have pretty good ability to ripen once picked up.
So far I'm having kick a$$ results with this megacrop only nute regime after trying all the previous witches brews and 3 part potions etc.. I don't know if you can score it where you live on the cheap but if you can I guarantee you will not be disappointed! So nice to have a 1-part that does everything all the additives and extras could do!
I wish I had the time to do an in depth thread like you did with the hesi but I will see if I can't get some pics and an update to my GLOG posted tonight just to illustrate.
In the midst of processing and harvesting right now on top of thee duties so quite overwhelmed! Sent from my XT1565 using Tapatalk
Hesi even stated in the mail, that they are aware of this problem with peppers and tomatoes and they are working to get some kind of calcium+ product out to the market, but it could take several months to do so. Oh well whatever, i am good to go with this B'cuzz coco a+b, it got everything i need except that one part thing and was thinking of using this to replace my ghe combo once my supply runs out.. I guess it is quite hard to find working one part nutrients for coco coir chili growing in Europe without giving something up in the process.
80-90 days from pods setting? Yikes, we'll probably have frost by then.
Yes, chili plants in general are slow to ripen their pods. C.annuum are usually the fastest, c.baccatum are next slowers and then there is the c. chinense ripening speed. I am afraid you will have to bring the plant inside to ripen it's pods when the first sign of frost is incoming.
I would say they are pretty slow to ripen by observing my Aji fantasy plants i had growing few years ago, perhaps 80-90 days at the earliest and there should be some indication when they are ready to pick.
