#1607085 Growdown Throwdown 2019 Sri Lanka - Chilli Red!

Posted by Pepper-Guru on Yesterday, 09:17 PM

Oh I hear ya. I sent out 20 or so "care packages " 2 years ago. But it was AWESOME to see what happened with everyone and their grow. I will do it again next year after my seed count is back up. I just greatly enjoyed the experience and watching what happened with the seeds I sent out. Gave me a warm fuzzy feeling lol

That's the best part

Not sure what an SASE is but hell yeah its generous and appreciated 100% that is probably one of the best things about this community. The generosity and advise given is AMAZING. That's why when I get my seed stock back up, I'll be doing another give away like I did my first year here. 😁

Self Addressed Stamped Envelope. Say youd like to try something, and someone offers it out to you. It's best practice to offer to send an SASE. Just learned etiquette. but...Make no mistake. It can get nuts once the word gets out someone is "nice". haha

good to hear from you.  Let's hope i can bring back some original strains to the pepper growing community.  

It's MUCH MUCH needed and funny you should mention it. Im planning that exact thing this year. Everything in the vault gets grown, everything get netted, the genetics live again. 

 

Let's compare on some of the older stuff! Primo stuff, 7 stuff, bhut stuff etc

Well, he said to send him my address so I am assuming he has a few. Can't wait to see how this goes 😁

not sure how Andy is handling it, but if he asked for yours, then it sounds like you don't need to send an SASE.

I'm all for nostalgia, but come on... this isn't the stone age, old man. Helmet head is what Vitamix was made for.

West, in the game!  Don't forget to scarify them first with a quick blitz in the coffee grinder.

Actually, we've come to the conclusion that mortar and pestle seem to work the best for scarification, and helps with helmet heads.

Sure will do guruji.

I mean, I don't know what all you sprouted in that zone of the tray, but I see ones that are definitely the goods :) Also, Guru Ji is a different pepper dude, I've come to learn. Ha

See the ones with larger primary leaves and greener stem? That's likely the goods, more so than anything that pops with smaller primaries and purple stem. Keep them all and we will monitor any different phenotypes that show up. All choosing the same pheno type to weigh from.

So these came in today and much to my surprise they were from Sri Lanka lol, seeds are identical to ones Andy sent. I wont be able to start them for couple months as the seed starter is full now, I will compare peppers and no I will not use for grow down Guru lol wouldnt be worth it anyway since Id be 2 months behind.

That's neat! I promise you they aren't the same though! Trust me ;) DO grow them BOTH out and post the different results though! 

 

It's not that starting them would put you two months behind and not be worth it, its that they aren't the same and therefore can't be used in the grow down. Being late to the party doesn't mean you won't win either! Just look at last year ;)

Don't skip Grenada.  I want a first hand report from there!
 
Keep thinking of retiring outside the US.  But I'm horrible with languages.  English is difficult enough for me.


You got it!
