Looks like some type of cutworm to me. They come from moths.


In Topic: Beginner looking for trustworthy seeds or seedlings for the following

Just because I'm only now posting in the hot pepper does not mean that I just began this as a pipe dream yesterday. I have been researching and researching and researching. As far as what I got… 3.5 gallon kitty litter buckets modified to hold plants as well as insert for air hose for oxygenating the water. I have ordered three quarts of Flora series nutrients, a kingbo 600 watt LED grow light, A 32" x 32" x 63 in reflective mylar grow tent Is the route I'm taking just to begin with.

 

As a poison dart frog breeder of 5 years I am no newbie when it comes to dealing with frustrating project issues. It takes dedication, education and responsibility and as far as my disability goes, that's not something that will be a hindrance for me and I'm trying to wrap my head around why somebody would speak on that without knowing anything about my situation other than the small amount I have posted and to be clear I post about my disability because I'm proud of how much I've overcome and not to have my ability to do what everybody else does because of it.

 

Thank you for the concern but I am a 41-year-old man with a team of personal assistants and 2 teenage daughters that will be managing the project with me. You're probably asking yourself if I know so much and why am I waiting until so late in the season to begin and that's because putting together the money to do this properly takes time and it's at that point in the process which I find myself now.

 

You sound passionate enough, and I suspect you have the dedication.

 

If you wanna send me a private message with your address, I'll help you get a seed collection started.

 

Once you have a small collection started, trading for new types will become common place here.

 

BTW those lambchops are sick!  :metal:

Nice balance of eating peppers to your list.

 

I feel like you need an orange thai in there. For that penetrating annuum perfume and it's sharp fast acting but not overpowering heat.

I've got a young Pube (it just popped through the soil in the last week) underneath 50% shade cloth but it's getting a full day of sun. Is this OK or is it still too much direct light?

 

NorCal has been unseasonably cool and Oakland has been cloudy/foggy/smoky with temps in the 70s.

 

Thanks!

 

 

I think you'll be fine under the shade cloth.

Sounds like too much direct sun for a young pubescens to me. 2-3 hours direct morning sun should be more than enough IMO
