#1573257 Recommended top 5 sauces

Posted by Hybrid Mode 01 on 04 August 2018 - 02:24 PM

There's a Caribbean section separate from the hot sauce in most supermarkets...

 

 

     :think: I'm lucky if I can find a MexicAsian section where I live. I can't remember the last time I shopped at a store that had more than an "ethnic section" bigger than 6 square feet. Not that I'm complaining though. My commute to the rifle range is shorter than my commute to work! :metal:

#1565177 Cacti Thread

Posted by Hybrid Mode 01 on 03 July 2018 - 11:16 PM

Well dang. So the trick it to leave them alone. Lol I'll try... But that's a tall order!

     A lot of times cacti need to experience a long, cool, dry dormant period to get them "in the mood" to flower. The increase in sunlight, temperature and moisture that breaks the dormant season is what triggers flowering.

     Granted this is all hearsay by me. I have yet to successfully trick my cacti into thinking it's "time".




#1560336 Chile Pepper Powder mixes.

Posted by Hybrid Mode 01 on 15 June 2018 - 07:39 PM

     Stems and all, eh? :think:   I bet it's good. Sweet savory cayenne rounding out the bonnets and red habs with a little smoke.  :drooling:

Have you found one to be more effective for ladybugs? Are there flowers/plants to encourage Green Lacewings to stick around?

 

     If I had to choose only one, probably marigolds. I don't have any evidence to show that they're better though. Any low maintenance plant that keeps producing flowers all summer long is a winner I figure. Lantana is another good one because it can endure lots of neglect (forgetting to water). It can be in full sunlight with bone dry soil in >90o temps for a few days and perk up like nothing happened as soon as you remember to water it - without even dropping a flower. Plus it's pretty.

     Lacewings eat pollen and nectar just like ladybugs. I think any plant that attracts one will attract the other. Once I started planting flowers among the other plants in my garden I couldn't believe how many lacewing eggs I saw on all my plants.

     I took the cue from bongcloud ( :cool: ) and read up on mealybug destroyers. (Looks like a positive ID.) I found out that like ladybugs, they also eat flower pollen when their preferred food is scarce. If you want to maintain a resident population, maybe plant some marigolds or nasturtiums or some other plant with lots of flowers to keep them happy in your garden. I've had really good luck keeping regular ladybugs around doing that. Aphids f**king hate my garden. :D

     Yuck. Those things are gross! If I were you, I'd play it safe and burn my house down to keep them from spreading. ;)




#1559091 Maximise Chilli Flavour without the heat??

Posted by Hybrid Mode 01 on 10 June 2018 - 09:09 AM

 only 1000 scovies.

 

     Only?! :shocked:  Holy shit, could you imagine even 10 of him in one place?




#1558506 Please help

Posted by Hybrid Mode 01 on 07 June 2018 - 05:28 PM

The calyx looks like a chile de arbol.

 

     Hard to tell from the pics, but it looks like the plant has a strong upright growth habit which points that direction too.
