Not a great pic of the plant as moving indoors has caused some stress and leaf loss. But the maturity of the knot is still the focus.

5 flood trays still in shipping wrap.

 

The grow room is going to take on a whole different look this year.

My room is roughly 110 sq feet. The flood tables will occupy 64 sq feet.

I always have found something I could not wait to grow out. Anyone else find something and if so, what?




#1500126 Now what after they are dried?

Posted by CAPCOM on 20 October 2017 - 09:54 PM

My spice/coffee grinder with blades can pulse. It just turns every thing to a fine powder fast. I just got the lemon drops out of the dehydrator. Put them in a ziplock bag and crushed each one with my fingers. I cant handle another day of "Hunan Hands". :D

 

Put them in a mason jar and give it a shake. Most of the seeds end up in the bottom. LOVE the smell of lemon drop powder. Ive got a nice batch that were all deseeded and then sun dried too.

 

Just tried a 50/50 mix of lumbre and gochu, 7grams each in the blade grinder. Turned out pretty good but definitely on the very upper end for kimchii use. Smells and looks great though. I will sample it in my simple kimchi for hot dogs.

 

My coffee grinder will also turn the pods into fine powder. And I sometimes do that deliberately. But pulsing in moderation will render whatever coarseness you want.

I have as close to thoroughly as I can reviewed the dehydrators mentioned in this thread as well as a few others. I feel the Weston I initially inquired about will best suit my needs and requirements. Thanks to all involved for all the input and recommendations.

 

Patience continues to pay off. This just went down to $414.96.

#1498622 Powder storage

Posted by CAPCOM on 14 October 2017 - 03:17 PM

Old idea: http://amzn.to/2z8qMw0 (this set is good because many times these sets come with the combo shake/pour lid, and this simply has the shaker holes)

New idea (magnetic): http://amzn.to/2xFvAYH (if you have an area to stick these to, this could be really cool and colorful)

 

I will keep the above in mind for future day in and out use. For now I picked up 8 of the following canning jars.

#1497589 Hello and question regarding indoor temps

Posted by CAPCOM on 09 October 2017 - 09:46 PM


 

Take note here. This is an important point that many people miss. Photoperiod is not the way of the pepper plant! It doesn't care at all.

 

I'm surprised by your corner grow statement. That's equivalent to 145W on my 16 square feet. That, plus a room with non-ideal reflections and I really don't expect substantial grow in the corners. Are you meaning that the plants survive? Because they are surely very light starved, no? I can't see them as being very productive at such a low light intensity!

 

Heat output a positive byproduct? Why? It impacts how close the lights can get to your plants. You can always add heat and isolate your growing area better. Too much heat and you waste both energy and need to vent it out to not cook them.

I dont grow indoors all year long. I start plants in Dec/Jan and grow til plant out around Mothers day.

Heat out put is a positive byproduct? ABSOLUTELY. I can thermoregulate by running 4- 6 hour cycles.

Screwed up day/night cycle? peppers dont care.
