#1408860 Height of LED for seedlings

Posted by solid7 on Today, 12:22 PM

Shouldn't be a problem.  The problem with high wattage, more than anything, is heat.

That is a ridiculous amount of wattage for seedlings.  How many seedlings, over how wide of an area?

 

You don't need much light for the seedling stage.  With that much light, you could just about put the light at eye level, and seedlings to the floor.




#1408793 Is this a predatory mite or a pest mite?

Hypoaspis miles is what you are looking at.

 

 

 




#1408680 OBEAH F1 - Reaper x MoA Scotch Bonnet

Breed it with the all heat, no flavour one and see what happens.

 

No, wouldn't dream of that.  The flavor of this one is absolutely perfect.  I don't like the shape for the sake of stabilising the OBEAH, but I'll see where this one goes.

So, I had one F2 Obeah left in a far corner, that was neglected and nearly forgotten.  So that means, I actually have 4 unique phenos of this attempted cross.

 

The latest one that I got looks almost like a perfect cross shape wise of a Bahamian Goat and Red Savina Habanero. It's bright red.  The flavor is absolutely marvelous.  But the heat isn't quite there.  And the shape is well...  Meh.

 

Making smoked sauce from a batch of them tomorrow.

I was commenting on humidity not for plant growth but for propagation of molds and fungi.

 

I'm sorry, man, I just don't know anything about that.

It still looks like leaf spot or leaf burn to me.  The other pics that look sort cankerous are most likely a bacterial or fungal issue, due to too moisture on the lesions on the leaf.

 

If you stop spraying, it should go away.  You may want to remove all affected leaves, for the time being.

Did you just repost pics?  I didn't see those before, for some reason.




#1408405 7 pot burgundy?

Posted by solid7 on Yesterday, 07:45 AM

I'd be willing to swap some of my seed stock for yours, and compare...  Mine came from fatalii.net

 

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that my plant is completely isolated.  Not even grown in the same side of the yard as my other peppers.  (short of busy bees, no way for any kind of cross, given its location)

You'll still need to re-apply at least once or twice, until all of the crawlers - those little black specks that are left when you wash off the disgusting white stuff - are completely dead, and nothing new shows up, winged or otherwise..  They don't tend to fall off, so it's really hard to tell if they're dead.  




#1408081 Help! Weird Leave spots

I can't really tell from the pics what those spots are, but I've seen spots very much like that from mite infestations.

Do you have any small specks on the underside of the leaves?  Any silky webs?

 

You definitely don't need to add that 6-0-0.  That's just Nitrogen, and your leaves are already humongous.  For what you've got now, I'd add less, not more.

ONe thing that would help for sure, is if people would stop trying to grow peppers like they grow marijuana.  There is no need to "veg" and "bloom" a pepper plant.  Stick to the moderate grow schedule for all phases of the plant's life, unless there is a legitimate need to increase the nutrients.  "If some is good, then more is better" does not apply, here.

 

The EC issue would be suspect every time.  There could be something in your water that is attaching to something in the nutrients, making it unavailable to the plant.   Definitely use RO water, when you can't eliminate any other suspect.  Chances are, there's nothing wrong with the nutrients, per se.

No worries, thanks for at least trying.  I am very familiar with the Russian black varieties.  Black Prince and Black Krim are always on my grow list. (got a nice Black Prince going now)  I'll check out the Eva Purple Ball and Momotaro.

Thanks for the info. I already moved them because of the whole rain thing, but I'll make sure to put them elsewhere moving forward. Thankfully these bugs aren't of the spiral variety.

 

Thankfully is right.  Nasty little bastards, they are.

 

The more direct sunlight, typically, the less whitefly.  However, the more space between plants, also, the better.  Once you are in a breeding ground, though, it's hopeless.  Prepare to be busy.

I've never heard that bit about the coconut palms. Care to elaborate? I actually have 3 plants from last year stationed under some right now. They do have some, but I've been pretty good at keeping them at bay. My problem source is the firebush (hamelia patens). I really like the bush and the bees even more so. It's hard for me to considering removing it.

 

Coconut palms are really bad attractors, and bring in some of the worst.  Specifically, the spiral whitefly.

 

 

Plants under a coconut palm are almost a guarantee for an infestation.

 

The area of my yard that is open, sees almost zero whitefly on peppers, eggplant, or tomatoes.
