bpiela 2019 New Season, new hope

18 January 2019 - 06:57 PM

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

Agony F2 (Rainbow Chile Seeds)

Armageddon F4 (Rainbow Chile Seeds)

Boze Moj F4 (Rainbow Chile Seeds)

Centurion F1 (Rainbow Chile Seeds)

Ikaraka F2 (Rainbow Chile Seeds)

Insane F4 (Rainbow Chile Seeds)

Carbonero Sherwoods Cream (Walchit)

Ghost White w strain (Walchit)  (what the hay is a w strain?)

JPGS (Walchit)

Swamp Thing (Walchit)

Left 10 rows

Sri Lanka Chili Red  (Woot!)

Griefer  (Gnarly Pods)

Aryana's Chocolate Naga Viper (Gnarly Pods)

Yellow Stinger GP (Gnarly Pods)

Carolina Reaper (Juanitos)

White Bullet Habanero (Juanitos)  I love these!

Devil's Brain (Pepperlover)

Douglah Red (Pepperlover)

Trinidad Scorpion Butch T (ButchT.com)

I Scream Scropion (ButchT.com)


This is just a start.  Lots more to go.

Cross Question

29 July 2018 - 10:36 PM

A couple of years ago, I grew a Mustard Hab plant next to a bunch of frutescens pepper plants.  I had saved seeds from a couple of pods from the Mustard Hab plant.  This year I grew a few seeds out and some of the plants look like Mustard Habs but one plant is a frutescens.  The pods are growing up, are red and just come off the plant just like a tabasco.  Is it possible that a cross would show frutescens traits when the Habanero is the mother plant?

The funny stuff

14 June 2018 - 04:52 PM

With NJ moving closer and closer to legalizing marijuana, I was wondering if anyone here has any recommendations for sites similar to this on growing weed.  I know next to nothing about it, am looking at it only as a hobbyist, no ideas where to get seeds, etc.  Thanks in advance!

What bugs are these?

Hello.  I posted about this in my glog but it doesn't get alot of updates so I figured I would post here as well. 


I saw these on a CAP691 that I still have in a small container.  The plants have been outside for awhile now.  Looks like insect eggs of some sort.




Here is a slightly different angle.  Should I be cleaning this up and removing these egg-like thangs?



Looking for Thai seeds

05 June 2018 - 11:00 AM

In particular, I was looking for some seeds for Prik Kariang or Prik Kriang or Prik Kaleang.  I think those are different spellings for the same chili.  Did a google search and the only seeds I see are on ebay, so I don't really trust them.  Thanks in Advance!
