Give a good thorough watering. It will come right back. I have revived plants in far worse condition.

Being that this is somewhat a grassroots start that is snowballing quite quickly, I find myself inundated with details in all of my idle time. 

This event has the potential to become more that I ever envisioned, and trust me when I say I have already envisioned a lot.


This, the THP community as I have observed over the years has a rather large and talented group of artists. Should the time come and it will, I am interested in having available, contact info of anyone that may be willing to provide their services.


Particulars will be discussed confidentially.


The group at this time consists of,

Graphic artist

Web development and management.


I have a new email acct for matters directly relating to CHILI-CON, PM me for contact info.

I like Primos but prefer reapers.

I have them on the way as well.
And some really nice CPRs.

#1564480 Looking for a Deep Fryer

 Not sure but some of the cheaper ones will not hold steady temps or reach 375 which some people like for good wings. 365 is usually fine but with wings some demand 375 for good wangs and some of the cheaer models do not get there. ;)

Or they are such small capacity that temp draw down and recovery makes the fried product inferior in quality.

Yes, Leaves are showing yellow. Lots of rain here lately and they need nuts soon. RO water is being made right now for that purpose.



#1564405 Why will it not grow?

Posted by CAPCOM on 01 July 2018 - 03:34 PM

Also how do I stop the leaves wilting? Should I spray them with water? The soil is wet

wilting is not always a sign of thirst and is not a major concern. I have had plants wilt to the point of foliage drying and still came back after a good watering.

How often do you feed/water?  Media looks wet and compacted.

#1564215 Ghost pepper disappointment

Posted by CAPCOM on 30 June 2018 - 10:30 PM

No. Fresh or dry does not change the capsaicinoids potency. You may have just gotten a not so hot ghost pepper.

I've been waiting and am excited also.  You're going to do great CC!

Thanks SmokenFire, I really appreciate that.


Good Luck with that worthy endeavor! I hope to see it go on a US tour after it is up and running! Cheers!



Thanks Voodoo 6, That is my hope as well.

#1564195 Your favorite pepper variety

Posted by CAPCOM on 30 June 2018 - 08:50 PM

I cant answer the question with one pepper. When I first started growing it was the versatile Jalapeno. Shortly after getting into super hots it was Judy's Brown Moruga. Since that time I have come to relish too many with different heat and flavor profiles of varying degrees. Chocolate Primos and Bhutlahs are a current mainstay, but I still love those old favorites as well.

#1564190 What becomes of the surplus harvest?

Posted by CAPCOM on 30 June 2018 - 08:43 PM

I eat fresh pods on sandwiches and such until the season comes to an end. then dehydration takes care of the rest. You can never have too much dried product.
