Start a Grow Log for your growing season.
Hi all! So I'm very new to this whole game and I've never grown peppers from seed before. I was poking around here, got a few ideas and started my first seeds Monday. A little late in the season I know, but better late than never...I'm just hoping something grows by the end of the year! Anyways I wasn't planning on doing a log, but yesterday (I'm out of town every Wednesday night) my wife called and said "Do you know you have a sprout?" and I got super jazzed :dance: and I don't know who else to tell! Hopefully you guys can help me out along the way, I have little to no idea what I'm doing. I also have very little money for this so my set up is kind of half-assed. I've got 40 seeds, some Bhut Jolokia, Habanero, White Habenero...
Hi, Haven't posted in a while but I was lurking the other day and it got me psyched to start some plants for this year. I just finished setting up about 40 Jiffy Pellets with the following varieties: XL Trinidad Congo Yellow Scorpion - CARDI Bhut Jolokia TFM Scotch Bonnet Peach Habanero Hot Paper Lantern Lemon Drop Fatali Orange Devil's Tongue Yellow Haberno 7-pot (120) Naga Morich (46) Mesilla Cayene (27) Tabasco (29) Jalepeno M Golden Greek Pepperoncini Trinidad Scorpion Agni Cayenne In order to have a successful season I have some stuff I really need to accomplish. One of my goals for the year is to craft a better setup for starting the plants out. My basement proves to be a little too cold for peppers this time of year. I...
Ok, I finally got around to potting the maters up today, some of them were going nuts, some were straggling along and some didnt do squat! I ended up with 22 plants. I will probably get a couple Beefsteaks going here soon too. I planted them about 4 weeks ago, they took about 8 days to all pop up. So heres my list of what I have... 6 Jersey Devil 4 Believe It Or Not 3 Russian Rose 5 Super Marzano VFNT 4 Belgium Giant Heres the Russian Roses, Believe It Or Nots & Super Marzanos And the Belgium Giants & Jersey Devils

I have sprouts from the following seeds so far: 3 - Red Habenero 2 - Bhut 2 - Serrano 2 - Nagas
Well we will start at the start this year. I have built a grow box and i cant wait to use it. Im going to get some seed trays tomorrow and will have seeds in by tomorrow night. I ran the box with lights and fan and got 29 deg air temp in the center of the enclosure. here is the box closed up Now as you can see in the above pic...... the room is well lit. As you can see from the exposure of the pic below.... its bright in there. It mad my garage look dark. the lights in the roof And the fan thats pointing at an angle across the enclosure. Its perfect actually. It spreads air evenly but doesnt make a line of wind that i was worried it might. It just moves the air evenly around and will work a treat. Will take pics tomorrow...
Heres where I am at so far (as of Feb 22nd, 2010) Seedlings Progress, you probably can't tell to well from these pics but each cup has the type written on it and a colored ziptie for identification, heres the color code. Ziptie Color Code: Orange = Orange Habanero Pink = Caribbean Red Habanero Green w/out black top = West Indies Habanero Green w/ black top = Jamaican Habanero Blue w/out black top = Caribbean Red (female) x West Indies (male) Blue w/ black top = Caribbean Red (male) x West Indies (female) My Bih Jolokia which I started way too early is already podding up which is a good thing because it was growing so big and so fast (even without pinching buds) I have been pruning the ends constantly! Here are some of the pods...
A completely different grow. Six plants: 2 each of First Prize and Better Boy, one apiece of Goliath and Celebrity. I did not record when I sowed the seeds, (stupid!) but they were transplanted to 3" containers on Christmas. They are now in 7-gallon pots under a 400 watt HPS system. Hopefully, will get pics tomorrow when there is something besides artificial light in the room. Mike
Been growing peppers off and on -depending where I live for maybe like thirteen years. Did a bit of vocational horticulture school, but I screwed off more than anything so I really don't remember a lot of it. Right now I'm growing in closets and my garage under lights, in containers and in the ground outside, and getting ready to start up my various hydro systems. I'm kind of an undisciplined grower. Kind of lazy sometimes. If I was more on it, I'm sure my production would be better. I spend a lot of $ and time amending soil, messing around with fertilizers and such but am easily sidetracked and I don't always do things the right way. Sometimes my gardening sessions rapidly deteriorate into drinking beer outside and killing the...
After reading several other threads, I started getting nervous. I figured if Patrick was starting already, I'd better get my backside in gear. After growing the standard first timers peppers last year, I decided it was time to branch out a bit this year. My list so far includes: Bhut Jolokia Bih Jolokia Trinidad Scorpion 7 Pot Fatalli Caribbean Red Yellow Hab Orange Hab Large Peach Hab Peach Hab Golden Cayenne Long Red Cayenne Lemon Drop Serrano Biker Billy Jalapeno Mucho Nacho Jalapeno Aji Panca Put Gochu Orange Thai I'm trying Jiffy pellets on a heat mat for germination. Seems a little more regulated and is working better than last year.
I've been sucking valuable info off of this forum for some time now, so it's time to say thanks to everyone for answering all the questions I never had to ask! Back to the subject at hand... how can I go back to dirt now that I've done hydro? Haha. I decided a few months back being an extremely long winter here in Canada to try my hand at hydro, just to see if it was all that it was cracked up to be. The project started near the middle of November '09. I was going to try DWC but then the guy at the hydro store convinced me try the continuous drip feed system that they sell. He claimed it was less effort of watching water levels and such. I guess I was easily convinced, as well they had a nice little Thai pepper plant run on that system...

I'm getting an early start this year in hopes of having plants ready to pollinate & set before it gets too hot. I'll be starting a new tray of pellets today. Seedlings grow slowly this time of year as it's getting fairly cold at night, so need to start bringing them in now. I don't have any ground, so all will be in pots. Too bad I can't let them root thru the pots into the ground like AJ. But I may set each pot on a tray of dirt this year to facilitate drainage with some wick type action. Grow List: From Cappy - ....Brain Strain, 5 of 12 sprouted, this week I will start the other 12 ....Yellow Scorpion, 10 of 1st 12, doing well so I need to start 2nd 12 ....Mustard Hab, 9 of 1st 12 - most robust of the group ....Big Sun...
I've started on my second season and have "transplanted" eight plants so far: 3 Legend, 3 Mira, a Siletz and a Sacramento. Discovered that delivering too much air to a bucket of water is not good for plants - they were wilting. Turned the pump off and they have perked up a bunch. I have no idea how many plants I can cram into the GH - somewhere between 39 and 51 - only time will tell. The plants so far: Three Mira Three Legend One Siletz One Sacramento Joining them, in time, will be Florida 91, Delicious and IT-06-313. Minimum goal: A ripe tomato to pick on Christmas Day in the morning. Ultimate goal: 100 pounds of ripe tomatoes per week by the end of December. Mike
I started some seeds sunday night (1-10). I have a few more seeds in the mail from trades. To keep track of the plant dates, I'm going to list them out here. Seedman.com seeds(two seeds per cup): 4x Fatali 4x Bhut Jolokia 2x Golden Greek Pepperoncini 2x Goat Horn The last two are annums if my research is correct. If they grow to fast i will start them over at the end of Feb. Bob
Hail! So i shall start another one of these threads for your forum clogging pleasure :-) At the time of this post i am growing: Bhut Jolokia 7 pot Trinidad Scorpion Aji Omnicolour Bolivian Rainbow Jalapeno Orange Habanero 'Razzamatazz' Mystery Ornamental This is my first time growing seedlings, and apart from a brief forray into gardening when i was like 4, my first growing experience! Today i repotted most of my seedlings from 1.5 inch seedling tray cells to 3.5inch pots. I used potting soil mixed with some perlite to help drainage. I've never repotted before and im sure i will lose some seedlings. Some of them had very small root balls!!! I buried them a few cm deeper than they were before. Here is pics! Top tray roughly left to...
Moving from one house to another at 30° F, though 4 miles only, was a lot of stress for my plants. The neglect during all the moving and cleaning up activities added some stress too and caused some severe setback for my plants. This is how far they recovered until now. The plants in the wintergarden: My biggest plant so far: Aji Pineapple Tepin
