I let these pill things dry out, I added more water and a lot still sprouted. Don't be a quitter!
I was hoping to see you growing the PdNxBMJ
of Tristen's, but that's an awesome list of pepper
Good luck getting your seeds going. Hopefully,
Andy is right!
I picked up some new seedling trays and had the wife stop at target for some cammomile tea. Worse case I will toss the seeds that don't sprout and start over. I also got some rapid rooter plugs to try out. Going to do the plants I plan on putting in hydro in those so I can transfer right to the hydroton once the roots are showing.
Have your tried Dyna-Gro 7-9-5? It's relatively inexpensive, around 50/gallon, more if buying in smaller amounts, but a little lasts a long time. They make a bloom formula, but I use the 7-9-5 for everything. I've used it the last two years with my drip system with good results. I've used it indoors a lot too and in my AeroGarden. I've tried Flora Nova grow and bloom, and like those too. They are very sludgy and don't seem to mix as well, but the results have been good. The Masterblend, Epsom Salt, and Calcium Nitrate cocktail works great also but is a lot more work to mix, but it's super, super cheap.
Thanks Peter, for what its worth. I do a 30 gal res with several 5 gal dwc pots with bubble disks and a small fountain pump continuously cycling nutrients/water
Peter, Im going to do a few plants in hydro this summer as that seems to produce the most viable pollen for crosses. I used to use sensi grow and bloom. Are there any other nutrient lines you would recommend that are maybe cheaper? I tend to get runty pods indoors
Well the paper towel method was a bust for me. The paper towels drying out while the whole lid of the cup is completly moist from the evaporation. Having some mold pop up in some of the cups as well. That's what I get for trying something different. Makes me want to throw in the towel.
I've done it before and I'm pretty sure the 3 plants combined got as big and produced the same end yield as if I would have just done one plant. Simply put, I dont think you'll stand to gain any benefit from doing it that way. If space permits, maybe a larger container would help.
To my embarrassment, I've been slow in trying D3Monic's sauces. Not for lack of respect mind you, but so many other variables. I've a great collection of sauces and since my involvement here on THP, I've acquired so many more. So I show'em off a bit before I eat them.
The one I have tried, only since Christmas, was the Sweet Thai. I assume it was made for oriental dishes, but for me it has been slamming with summer sausages and other such charcuteries. He could call it anything he wants, but the sweetness is there, the consistency perfect and the "heat" is spot on. Just right. Prosciutto, Sopressata, cream cheese... this sauce nails it perfectly. Any hotter and it would be beyond my threshold. But, to me, as it is - "dead on" in both heat and flavor.
I'm no professional reviewer nor food critic, but in simplest terms would give it "two thumbs up." Especially for the uses I describe.
Being a commercial hot sauce maker, it may seem to some counterintuitive to give credence to anyone else, but in my business model - I truly wish success for all. It's a big market.
Having tried this sauce and damn near emptied the bottle, I would "buy" it again. Although in this case it was a "gift." I will in due time try the others.
Sorry for such late response. In complete seriousness, this Sweet Thai is a good product. (You know this already, but it never hurts hearing from an independent source.) Thanks for sharing.
Thank you Reggie, I appreciate the kind words. Im glad youre enjoying it.
