Grow Logs for hot peppers.
Hi Guy's Here in Scotland we have .....let's face it.....shitty weather.... lots of cloud and often wet, cold summers 😞 however some of us have the chilli bug and feel compelled to grow these beautiful jewels of nature. Particularly when we were lucky enough to grow up in the middle East raised on spicy food and a Grand father born and raised in Kerala India in the 1920's spice is in my families very DNA 🙂 Spicey food has always played an important part in our family over the last few year's I've strived to find varieties that will grow in my particular wee Scottish greenhouse............ First was the Ring of fire cayenne which is a perfect substitute for Indian green chillies only hotter 😎 a ridiculous early tasty variety...
Links to my grow logs: 2021 2022 2023 This picture is of the seeds soaked yesterday. Today I sowed the seeds of C. Chinense and C. Pubescens. C. Chinense will all sit in the hanging pots in my balcony garden. In 2 weeks I will sow C. Annuum. I do not have the final list of these yet because I have many seeds from which it is very difficult for me to choose. I will edit this message as I decide. Hanging pots: - Fatalii - V2 2022/2023 - 3 plants - Orange Fatalii - The Hippy Seed Co (thanks MarcV) - 2 plants - CGN 21500 - Sulsa - 1 plant - Adjuma - thanks @Sulsa - 1 plant - Humble Servants Homestead SB - V1 2023 (original seeds from MarcV) - 2 plants - PI 215734 - Semillas - 4 plants (last year's revelation, I want more this year) -...
Hello and welcome to the Grow! The garden is in sunny Tampa Florida zone 10 a. Some seedlings are growing, some just got planted and another twenty varieties were just ordered. Mild to wild heat levels. Common to less common genetics. Most varieties will have a 10 gallon grow bag with roughly 7-8 gallons of custom mixed fast draining soil. Nutrients will be Happy Frog organic all purpose 6-4-5 for veg, bone meal for flowering, liquid fish and cal mag extreme at discretion. Super thrive when stressing plants/ planting/ propagating. Planning to stay as natural as I can with feeding. I welcome to any insights you may have to organic fertilizers as I mainly have experience with synthetic fertilizers. The chart is the garden...
Let's play. I will not grow much more peppers this season than last one, but it's going to be fun like always :) Let's hope for a decent grow. Last year was pretty good even with just 10 main plants - mostly habaneros. They are my favorite and they will play the main part in this season grow also. Current status: (sowed two weeks ago) Most of them sprouted and soon they will need to be transplanted in solo pots. Annums: - Cherry bomb - Pimienta (PLM) - Kapija (paprika) - another red bell pepper variety Chinenses: - Aji Jobito - Purple Thunder - Scotch Bonnet Papa Dreadie - Scotch Bonnet Papa Joe's - Scotch Bonnet MoA (from 2021 - hoping for some sprouts) - Fatalii - Red Savina Habanero - Calita Red Habanero...
confession: your very own @growyourown calls himself a pepper lover and has never grown scotch bonnets! BLASPHEMOUS, i know; i intend to rectify this in 2024. i have several varieties to try, and am excited to do so. i just gotta write this now partially because i have the seeds and i'm excited, and also because if i get this intro crap out of the way, it's a quick post to make once i actually drop seeds over christmas. HERE'S THE SEEDS I BOUGHT FOR THE YEAR (note asterisks): bonnets: scotch bonnet trinidad red 900k * scotch brains yellow 1M+ scotch bonnet 6-colour mix: --choc/peach/red/orange/yellow/safi others: chin – fatalii yellow 900k chin – congo black X butch t choc 1.1M ** pube – rocoto giant yellow 50k frut – hijo puta...
I've been told for years that my craziness should be documented somewhere. Well, I'm going to attempt it. Each year I like to start at least 3 times what I am planning for myself. I do fill 3 other (neighbors and family) gardens as well but even so have tons of plants. And on average I have 500 hot pepper plants in our garden, with 35-50 superhots in buckets on deck. (along with 75 tomatoes, okra, tons of cucs in garden) This year I started 42 types of HOT peppers, 12 types of sweet (not for me!). I'll attach photo's later - so in some kind of order) as I have several in my 30+ trays of 48 as I am starting transplanting and putting back under lights until they are ready for greenhouse. There are 3 - 5 shelf shelving units inside...
Hello and Welcome to my first pepper grow journal. I am not a gardener and I don’t have access to a garden, so I am limited to growing in my basement. I WELCOME INPUT, SO PLEASE JUMP IN IF I AM DOING SOMETHING WRONG. I will be using a 2x2x6 grow tent to keep the plants warm and reflect more light. I have a 150 watt ViparSpectra LED for the space. I see that most of the pepper plants that I ordered are only expected to grow 2’ tall, so I’m hoping to squeeze four plants in the tent. This will put them 12” apart which is a little too tight I suspect. I will buy a larger tent (3x2 or 3x3) if it gets too tight (and if I enjoy this new hobby). I’ve been doing a lot of reading and preparation for this hobby….i hope it proves to be a...
I've opted to keep details of my crossing projects in this dedicated thread rather than include it in my 2021 Glog Edited this post to summarise what crosses I've got and where they are at, I will try and keep it current. Dates in status column reflect when I've updated the information not when the cross was actually made. I've not included every historic cross I've ever made and ignores anything where I haven't got at least F1 seeds unless I thought it was useful to record. Information might be useful to someone at some point. ChilliCrosser Cross Current Status X001 : Bolivian Rainbow x Cheiro Roxa (C.Annuum x C.Chinense) 🅿️16/8/21: F1 seeds, not grown on yet. X002 : Fijian Bongo x Cheiro Roxa (C.Chinense x C.Chinense) ❌16/8/21...
It's that time of the year, cold & gloomy outside, & inside the magic is happening. Those little green pepper plants are pushing up towards the artificial sun. Who came up first? The early Jalapeño, Serrano, & the Sugar Rush Stripy. A little game we play LOL. This is the best set up we have ever had before. 4 LED grow lights 2 heating mats, room stays at 66 F at night & 74 F during the day. With 22 varieties & 50 plants we hope to have a real special grow for the 24 season, with a lot of great tasting peppers. 😀 When I joined THP I had just moved from Fluorescents lights to the new LED lights. Outside everything is about the same, it's the indoor adventure that has changed for the better. Compact high output...
Sooo... 2022 season is over and most of my 2023 plants are already there - no reason not to start a new thread already! 😃 See my previous glog... https://thehotpepper.com/threads/2022-too-early-to-get-started.75362/ While all my current plants are technically overwinterers, only a couple have grown through the 2022 season and are considered interesting enough to keep for next seasons grow. Let's start with the famous Schneider farms SB plant, which will be going into it's third season in 2023. It currently doesn't look all that nice but that was also the case during the winter of 2021 so no worries here... Top view: Next in row is my Scotch Brains plant... Top view: And then there's the Humble Servants Homestead (HSH) SB...
This is my third year growing peppers since moving here; my first year was pretty good (completely accidentally), last year was a bit of a disaster due to unusual weather and my general gardening ignorance, so I can only hope for 2024 I can apply some of the lessons I have learnt on the way, and I am so happy to find such a treasure trove of knowledge and experienced growers here in this forum! There are some specific challenges to growing here: in addition to the annual monsoon/rainy season, Kyoto City sits at the bottom of a valley system surrounded on three sides by mountains, which causes cold, dry winters and hot, humid summers. Summers are particularly hot since we are a long way from the sea, so we get no nice sea breezes or...
Well all my stuff got wiped out by mice. What else is their to say. Last year Grasshoppers wiped out many peoples gardens as well as mine. Sine of the times ??? Peppers, Corn, the only thing they didn't like was my Acorn Squash. Its on my porch flowering and has three fruit. Got about five pepper plants on the porch that survived the Aphid wars, most others did not. About 20 pots from last year. Might start a few seeds again, gonna rely on some store versions for now. Night temps still below 0c at times and their calling for snow now and then. Had a bit of hail this morning but only lasted a couple minutes. Wind is icy cold at times. Thats about it. :)
I am starting this thread for folks who received some Pubescens seeds from me through the Pubescens giveaway. I figured it would be fun to see everyone's progress, plus have a general place to share any pics, growing techniques, and general Pubescens knowledge. I wish everyone great success in their gardens this year. Even if you didn't receive seeds from me, and want to contribute info about your Pubescens plants this year, please feel free to share.
