Well... you guys know me and i know you guys.... I was seriously planning on taking it easy this year, but somehow it happened again! The past few years were crazy productive and my household is completely saturated with peppers. Dried, frozen, canned, you name it we got it. Actually my house is starting to look like a spices warehouse of the VOC (east india company) Wich makes sense, since i'm living in Middelburg wich played a major role in this part of Dutch history. Even today my town still breaths the spirit of that time and so the need and greed for more is both genetic as well it is a product of my surroundings so it can't be blamed on me, right? Middelburg skyline in 1615 (hasn't changed much actually! 😁) As i was saying, i...
Zapotec Jalapeno (Baker Creek 2023 Seed extra pack I saved for 2024 ) https://www.rareseeds.com/pepper-hot-jalapeno-zapotec Piranha SB ( variant of Marion's SB seeds form RFC ) Since this is a variant I will refer to it as Marion's Scotch Bonnet red . I got the Marion's Red SB because I liked the flavor & heat profile I grew seed once of papa dreadie of Erin seed stock shared by Gary Montcalm back then . My was red it looked just like a papa dreadie only red & form what remember it flavor & heat was like this one. The other varieties was gifted as freebies form Jim. So I am growing them out I will need to bring my containers over for some of these etc https://www.superhotchiles.com/product/piranha-pepper-seeds/?v=7516fd43adaa...
Last year I grew a few accidental crosses, so putting this grow log together to capture the second year variations when they come in. One was a Habanero x Wild Colombian, which is the center right column in the picture below. These were somewhat fleshy, but very juicy, often containing so much water the skins would rip and burst if left on the plant too long. They had the flavor of a Habanero, but more heat and a much longer burn duration, but very tolerable. When they started to ripen they'd take only a couple days to fully ripen. These made a really good hot sauce, or as a modifier to heat up dishes without using a lot of pods. These unfortunately did not dehydrate well, becoming almost like a dehydrated apple, so they didn't make...
Here we go again. Summer 2021 : I hand pollinated some Aji Ahuachapan (aka CAP 220) flowers with Hallow’s Eve pollen. I was hoping to create a hybrid with the taste and production of the Aji (a favorite of mine) but on a dark plant bearing hotter fruits. I didn't use mini Ziploc bags or any other pollen "barriers" because I wanted to prevent the pollinated flowers from overheating and then falling off. A fruit finally formed on one of them so I thought my first cross was born! Next year (2022). I grew a single F1 plant. The foliage was beautiful with its dark margins and veins, as were the stems. The flowers looked great too, showing characteristics of both species. Unfortunately, the fruits took too long to ripen and frost came...
I always grow more peppers than I need, so my goal this season is to grow less. My freezer is full of scotch bonnets, so I am focusing more on annum peppers this year. My seed starting grow tent in the past has been in a cold unfinished basement. This year I have the tent in an unused bedroom. I am excited to see how much better everything grows with the warmer temperatures. In the basement, air circulation and heat were competing variables. I could heat the tent if it was closed and unventilated, but then I noticed negative effects from lack of air circulation. From my reading, I think the plants probably weren’t getting enough CO2. I have a west facing window in the new tent location. Not sure if a little natural sunlight...
Hi pepperlovers! I think it is time to get a grow log started for the season 2023. I hope you will join in and follow along. Feel free to give me advice, critics, ask questions and leave comments of any kind! :D As I already mentioned in my introduction post I am growing peppers since 2019. I am lucky I have enough space to try a lot of vegetable growing, but my favourite are peppers of all kind :hot: First of all lets get started with my two main spots for the growing. The first one is directly at the house where I grow the plants mainly in buckets. Here will be the plants I want to visit daily (actually several times a day :D) and have a really close look on. The second spot is an outdoor garden some minutes away. Here I will...
Hello   Decided to publicly post my attempts at growing peppers this year. Would appreciate any advice given.   So I am currently growing    2 Aji Limons (one planted on the 27th February, the other on 4th March) 1 Numex Twilight (planted on 4th March) 1 7-Pot ( planted 4th March I think) 1 Bulgarian Carrot (planted 4th March) 1 Pumpkin Pepper (planted 27th February) 1 Habanero (planted 27th February) 1 Jamaican Hot Chocolate (planted 27th February) 1 Bhut Jolokia (planted 27th February) 1 Bird's Eye Pepper (planted 27th February) 1 Chimayo (which germinated but later found to have died due to damping off)   Habanero and Pumpkin Pepper were the first to hook which was on the 4th March. Aji Limon on 5th March. JHC and Bird's Eye on the...
According to the Urban Dictionnary, the word "unexpectational" refers to the active state of not having any expectations... In 2020, I grew a single Devil’s Rib plant, a habanero relative coming from Ghana. To be completely honest, it was without much expectation as I’m not really a big habanero fan! Our summer was exceptional that year so the plant grew very healthy and reached massive proportions. It gave me a shitload of pods averaging 20 grams each, with some weighing just over 25 grams. They were tasty and quite hot too, somewhere between the alleged 414 000 SHU and Ghost pepper level I’d say. At the end of the season I was quite happy I decided to grow it! As usual, I kept seeds from the nicest pods and planted about 30 last...
Back again and trying to get my first decent grow going in a few years. Experimenting a little with an aeroponics setup for some of my starts. Not certain how that will go but taking a punt. Have a bunch of different varieties down from varying age seeds (some from 2011-12 right through to 2022 all stored in fridge since early 2015) Most seem to be doing as they should and germinating. Some are being a little stubborn as expected. Once germinated they are going under a 500-600 watt LED panel with extra natural light in the greenhouse on a heat mat. Only thing I am lacking is a fan to get some more robust/less leggy seedlings which you can see in the seedling pictures. Multiple strains of myself and PaulG's Trippaul threats plus...

Here we go again!!!! Looking back at the 2022 season i can only conclude that it has been a succesfull and very productive season, wich ofcourse fueled the pepper madness in me even more! :D Fact is i grew way more peppers than i can possibly consume or give away under normal circumstances and it would be wise to cut down a bit on the amount of plants in the coming season. I decided to get rid of all the overwintering plants and start all fresh this year. No plants to take care of this winter, no fungus gnats all over the place and in my humble experience the overwinterers did not outproduce the fresh seedlings but did need more space. Pound for pound the seedlings were more productive. Plan was to cut down on the varieties too, but as...
Hey, I want to grow vegetables again this year. Capsicum should not be missing, of course. :D Planned are: Hot pepper: Aji Guyana (Capsicum baccatum; 6/10) "Gelbes Rüsselchen" (Capsicum annuum; 5/10) "Lila Luzi" (Capsicum frutescens; 7/10) Capsicum (Anuum): Kyra Corno Giallo Tomatoes: "Rotkäppchen" (balcony tomato) "Zuckertraube" (cherry tomato) Cucumber: "La Diva" (snack cucumber) (I ordered from a German store and unfortunately can't find the English names for the hot peppers and tomatoes) Unfortunately, so far I have only been able to get the Aji Guyana under the "soil" (Eazy Plugs), as the other seeds are still stuck in the post. Since I have done a few experiments with lettuce and the Kratky method, I would like to try...
This is a dedicated grow log for Tristen's awesome cross, which I have been growing out since 2014.  I'll start with a bit of history and some photos documenting what's happened so far.   In January of 2014, Tristen (Trippa) sent me a little care package of seeds. In the package were two generations of a cross he had made, which he just  called 'Mystery Cross, F1' and 'Mystery Cross, F2'.     Here's Trippa's Mystery Cross seedlings in February of 2014:     Both generations showing the purple foliage characteristic since the beginning.   Up close look at Trippa's Mystery Crosses, F1 and F2.  Both culled to a single plant after the photo taken, so I only had one plant of each generation:
After a couple nudging pm's it is time to get things rolling...well, get a list situated atleast. I won't be starting my seeds until March 1 this season. This list is subject to change, and I'm betting it will before I'm done typing. My two goals this season are 1.) Take less pics and better quality 2.)Sow later and achieve similar yields. My germination techniques and set up are not inspirational or extravagant so the bulk of my updates will be after early june plant out. Fert apllication and medium are changing a tiny bit but staying simple with it. c.annuum Big Jim Elefant Giant Aconcagua Goat's Weed Jimmy Nardello Mucho Nacho Purple Pequin c.baccatum Aji Cristal Birgit's Locoto (growdown) Yellow Bouquet c.frutescens Boonie...
Well, shoot. I don't know that I should start a new glog with as poor as I was about updating my last one, but here it goes. My offseason season started late, with most of my plants being probably four to six weeks old now. I'll start by posting a few of the newer ones. This guy is an Oxkutzcab/Oxkutzcabian Orange Habanero. I have three of these growing and a couple Caribbean Red Habanero that are smaller. The Oxkutzcab seem to be out-pacing the reds, but they've also been around a little longer. In this pic I particularly like the transition in the stem at the cotyledons. @HeatMiser sent me some of his wild texas tepin seeds - what, a couple years ago now? - and I've been trying to grow the variety to production ever since...
Hello guys and girls, as I told in the Welcome-Post I will let you know about my updates in my homegrowing-story ;) The content is primary translated from German to English. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ASK if something seems strange... My English is not that good... In the past I tried to document everything right and complete to last percent to achieve a 100%, but I now know that it takes too much time. Repeated: If you have any questions feel free to ask (Setup, Preferences, Sorts)
Hey folks, this dedicated thread will be all about growing the 7 Pot Savannah in honor of the late Dustin Jain/Nagacanario. According to his brother Christopher, he was not only a true pepper enthusiast but also an avid fisherman! Photo courtesy of Christopher Jain The following is a copy-paste from the thread that started it all back in 2021 (by @Guitarman), a summary of the character and his pepper: "He got his nickname from two of the things he loved the most: growing peppers and Presa Canario breed dogs. Some of us talked about keeping his memory alive back this year by letting people know about his creations and grow them, but it never happened. Dustin was from Savannah, GA and almost 10 years ago started selecting pods from an...
In this picture are 2 Dwarf Chiltepin from seeds from Semillas that sprouted on February 15. One of them shows signs of starting to branch out. A very nice growth habit for this variety. One of them will turn into a bonchi.

I really enjoyed growing this pepper variety this 2023 season. A BEAUTIFUL 5 foot tall 4 foot wide dark foliaged plant that yielded approximately 35-40 amazing pods. It weathered a massive rabbit buffet (1 1/2” stub) and still produced nicely before the scheduled first frost. It was grown the in-ground and really stood out from the 204 varieties that I grew this season. It responded very well to the ‘dry-farmimg’ technique that I practice using with 75%-85% of my grows, too. I haven’t had the chance to eat one yet but, if tastes as good as it looks I’ll grow it every season. EXCELLENT BREEDING WORK, PaulG!!! Definitely, a home run!!! Thank You for you dedication bringing this variety to the light! Positive Vibrations… p.s. Anymore...
My buddy asked me for seeds a couple weeks ago. I told him its to late in the season, but b sent him the seeds anyway. This will be his first time growing peppers and he is going with a small hydroponic kit he bought. Well, because he started this late, I thought what the hell. Sooo I ordered a new heat matt (should arrive today) and went out and bought some soil. Im using the same solo cup method that has worked so well before. Two cups, top cup has holes, water from the bottom up. I sowed (three seeds per cup) 1) REAPER 2) YELLOW NAGA REAPER 3) FATALI 4) TEPIN X LEMONDROP143[/ATTACH]
what up pepper peeps? your boy growyourown here with a bold proclamation: i challenged myself to try to grow all the five major pepper species for the first time; wish me luck! (and give me advice, i could use it) to begin, let's forget what i did last year. (just like i said last year) doing the big five became the goal because there are so many pepper types and flavours i have not experienced before, and that by working within those parameters for this year, i have a chance to grow and discover types of peppers which are mild enough that my wife may also enjoy. (she taps out at habanero heat, but said she'd try the 20-30k range, hoping she might step up to 50k) let's take a look at what we got going on: BACCATUM Aji Cito – 50k...
There have been several yearly PNW grow logs, the last in 2017, so @FGpepperguy and I thought it might be a good idea to start an on-going glog for the PNW. This is a community glog, so anyone is free to post here, whether in the PNW or not. Hopefully, this forum thread will provide for some information sharing particular to growing in our crazy, unpredictable weather. So, that being said, welcome all. Don't be strangers! "Yes, we can grow chili peppers in the Pacific NorthWest! Usually."
Well here we go again! After my friend @Alejandro took the last two plants off my hands (Jamaican red hab and sugar rush cream), I'm starting from scratch for the first time in a while. Very, very humble beginnings: One sprout and one hook! Granted... they're both basil. :) Still under the lid, waiting for hooks: Alma paprika Looking forward to having these again. I grew them quite a while ago and had good results; hopefully, having gotten a bit better with the hydroponics, this time will be even better. Chocolate habanero Another one I've grown before (not looking to do much new this time around, mostly bringing back the old favorites). I know annuum x chinense isn't the most reliable mix, but if I decide to revive the hybrid...
Under extreme pressure from my peers :lol: I am reluctantly starting my 2023 glog Haven't actually planted any seeds yet, but it won't be long before I succumb to the gentle scent of compost, the lure of germination and the excitement of seeing a sprout I am, however, cleaning all my plant tags if that's not commitment I don't know what is

Yep, I'm going to take a stab at resurging my passion. Only 40 starts this year, and that may be ambitious for the space I'm allotted, but compared to the TWO I grew last year? Way. So this year I'm doing the GIP Serrano Magic Powder again. Some of the farmers in Pueblo are growing some limited numbers of Serrano, so I may be able to augment to the 7 plants I'm doing myself. I had great aspirations to ship out some of that to a number of you guys, but somehow I dumbthumbed my address lists out of existence on the PC. I apologize and intend to follow through this year. I'll have the Rocoto/chokecherry jelly coming out my ears again, though I've got batches stored from previous seasons and plenty Aji Oro and chokecherries frozen to make...
Hello again, I'm back with a new grow log. This year I'm growing much the same as last year. The main difference is I've added 200 Aji Guyannas and some Jalapenos to the mix. I've never grown any annuums before, so that's a first. The Aji sauce was one of my best sellers last year. It came out with a sort of sour tomato taste, kind of salsa verde-like. Growing in the same 3 spots as before. I started my seeds on 02/22/2023, and reseeded a bunch on 03/03, mainly because the top shelf got too hot and zapped most of the yellow 7 pots. I potted them up from 1" pots to 3" the week of 04/03. Got them outside to harden off on 05/05. Overall I'd say the plants this year are a bit less healthy than last year, not sure why. I partly...
Here we go again... In fall, I got some seeds from SineNomine and decided to try and grow all of them and also a few from my previous season. PaulG also sent me seeds but the envelope stuck somewhere on the way. A shame for those nice seeds but let's hope they are growing somewhere else :) Planted them on 2nd Feb. Here's the list: Tasmanian Black (from PaulG via SineNomine) Trippaul Threat (from PaulG via SineNomine) Purple Thunder (from PaulG via SineNomine) Pimienta Puta la madre (from SineNomine) Papa Joe's Scotch Bonnet (from SineNomine) Papa Dreadie Scotch Bonnet (from SineNomine) Fatalii (from SineNomine) Aji Jobito (from SineNomine) Red Savina Habanero (s. 2022) Chocolate Habanero (s. 2021) Calita Red Habanero (s. 2022)...
I just got back from India, so I’m starting a week or two later than normal. Pictured are Surti Marcha or Surat Chili, supposedly the hottest chili used in Gujarat. I’m excited to try and grow some. As they are very similar to Thai chillies, most people wouldn’t be as excited as me to grow them, especially the super-hot only people. I’m very excited though!
Been debating on growing or starting a GLOG. Doing both. I had some Goats Weed and Pusa Sadabahar plants from last year. I overwintered. Kept them in the kitchen window until a few weeks ago. Set up my tent and threw them in there. They were flowering like crazy and had pods on them in the kitchen window. I recently crossed the GoatsWeed with the Sadabahar. Should be interesting. 43 seeds sowed. And more germinating. This will be a container grow. We’ll see what pops. Here is my list: Infinity UFO Habanero (Mine) Ring of Fire BOCx Aji Pineaplle Blue Ghost Peach Jigsaw WHP2 Scotch Scotch Brains Red Coyote Zan White Aji Charapita Hellfire Weed Freeport Orange 7pot Primo MOA Habanero x Bahamian Goat Peach Fatalii Borg 9 Purple/Red...
I guess now is as good a time as any to start a grow log. I'm currently growing under a Barrina 2000 led grow light. I'm using Berger 7 potting soil amended with bone meal, blood meal, earthworm castings, and innoculated with Mikro-Myco mycorrhizae. My current plants were dropped in on January 15 and January 30 with no soak or pre-treatment. My current grow list is as follows: 7 Pot White Andy's King BOC Big Black Mama XL BOC X Orange Primo X Purple Naga Viper Borg-9 Red Death Spiral Destroyah Hallow's Eve Jes's Moruga Purple/Red Judy's Brown Moruga Khang Starr Lemon Starburst Naga Black Peach Miasma Pockmark Orange Pumpkin BBG7 Reaper Purple Peach Reaper X Jay's Peach Ghost Scorpion Reaper X SRTSL Sugar Rush Peach Stripey T-Rex...
Here we go! Can't believe I created my first glog back in 2018, back then it was all about indoor hydroponics in a small tent. Now it's in a greenhouse, and this year I don't have to build it! :P This year I will also be monitoring the greenhouse more intensely. I have installed a greenhouse "computer", a device monitoring temperature, humidity, and lux levels. All this will be accessible on my phone, so hopefully, I can use this data to improve the plant environment further. I will also use this to monitor soil water levels in plants not in autopots. Handy to be able to check on the phone if plants need water :D I will also be collecting rain water, as opposed of using tap water, as were I live the water is rather hard. Hopefully...
