Yeah, a bunch of weirdly named peppers from Rainbow Chile Seeds. Looks like the guy there does a ton of his own crosses and then gives them exotic names. I don't know what I will get but it will be fun trying.
Germination has been a little slow this year. So, I have a heat mat under each BioDome. Both BioDome's weren't showing the germination I would have expected. I was keeping the heat on 24x7. So, after a week, I put the heat on a timer, turning it off at night and seeds have been popping somewhat. I have the following results thus far:
Awesome glog! Keep up the excellent work. Have you grown the Red Douglah Offspring Judy in the past? I am growing them this year as well, I just labelled it as a Red Douglah. Know anything about this strain?
Thanks Paul! Looking forward to a good growing season. I am following your glog. You got a lot of great stuff happening over there. Best of luck growing this year, especially with your cool crosses!
Excellent list Ben I wish you all the very for 2019
Thanks John! Like I said, this is just a start. I tried to sell my extra plants last year and I was only slightly successful. But, those that did buy from me have already reached out to me about buying again this year, so I will try to start up the same amount, around 140 different peppers, 3 each. So, more chinense on the way, maybe next week. I am currently planning on growing 10 different Scotch Bonnet varieties. That will be fun!
I've gotten some mold on some of my seeds this year, you might try the peroxide soak, Idk. Maybe in soil it won't be a problem. I used the paper towel method
Thanks for the heads up Andy! I will give that a try! Looking forward to the great stuff you sent me. I assume the "w strain" is the Walchit strain??
Nice Chinense start! Wish you luck, especially with those Sri Lanka
Somehow out of topic: I wonder how do you spell that Boze Moj from Rainbow Chilli Seeds Translation from Serbian to English is My God. English would sound like Boje Moy, where J is like J from Jardin in French,and moy sounds exactly when you say boy. Just like a pepper named Lanterna De Foc, which is pure Romanian language, even if most vendors say is a Kosovo pepper. Lanterna means mostly Flashlight, and De Foc means OF Fire.
I did not know that. Thanks for the translation. It seems like Vladan over at Rainbow Chile Seeds is really into hybrids and coming up with interesting names for them. I have gotten good stuff from them in the past so I thought I would have some fun and grow a few of his super hot crosses. Should be fun to see what I get.
I was thinking about possibly taking a year off. Last year was my best year growing but the pepper maggots turned me off so much that I lost interest and left way too many peppers on the plants. I can't let this happen again.
All this talk about the Sri Lanka Chili Red in the growdown for this season has gotten me pumped up. I started looking at the ole seed collection and have come up with the start of a plan. I gotta get those Sri Lankan Reds planted so here is my first group of peppers that I will plant.
Starting with all Chinense and of course a few cells for the Sri Lankas. Using the same Parks BioDome's that I have used successfully in the past. 60 cells in a 10 row by 6 layout. I split it down the middle and do 10 rows of 3 cells per pepper.
I am going to start with the "weird" stuff and some old stuff.
Right 10 rows
