On a different note, I am going to seriously rethink my plans for 2018. From projected grow list to nutrient supplements to seed acquisitions and everything in between. This year was below substandard in comparison to the past 3 years and I knew less about what I was doing in each of those. I am quite literally going to start from scratch in many areas.

JCGS and CPR harvest.

I know the CPRs look really morugaish, but the first pod looked more reaperish than these. taste and heat will tell.

 

 

I have a few 7 pot burgundy pods on my bonchi candidate plant that I am allowing to ripen to their fullest potential before removing them as I dont have any more seed stock from them.

 

 




#1483252 Chocolate bhut long, Hmmm

Posted by CAPCOM on 12 August 2017 - 09:21 PM

This was supposed to be a chocolate bhut long. hints of BBG, not chocolate and not bhutish.

While I am slightly intrigued, I am also most definitely disappointed.

Sorry to hear that. I hope you get that late pod push!

 

Thanks, I am going to spend the next few months sourcing quality and or confirmed seed. Will probably have to go to original sources to get true seed.

I was out of town for the last week and hoped I would see a significant change in my grow upon my return. I am disappointed in this years output and of its further potential. Last years plants were small trees by this time and this years plants are little mote than they were 4 weeks ago. I am also seeing a lot of pods not growing into what they are supposed to be representative of. I am not real hopeful of any kind of crop that supply me through out the winter, unless there is that typical last 6 week splurge of production. I lay blame on the continuously wet and uncharacteristically cooler summer we have been experiencing.

 

I am so disappointed in this year I am going to start looking at next year, RIGHT NOW.

Photo periods dont matter with peppers. This year I ran 4-6hr cycles and pepper plants flowered no different than running an18/6.

Not ruling anything out, but those do look odd.

Just think what these plants would be like if I had waited to plant out a week after Mothers day.
