    What color should Scotch Bonnets be..?

    Thanks for all the replies...   The pod  I got seeds from came from the vendor that supplies my local Mex restaurant. Pods were all bright yellow and looked all a little different, some with the classic SB look...   Both these pods come from that same seed pod of mother plant above in first post.

    small hydro system

    Thanks for the reply's...   HeatMister, thanks for showing us that vid, looks like the small containers can produce decently.   The system I posted uses no soil/media. Must use what they call, gigantic coarse gorilla perlite, not media/potting soil. They sell it, of course.   They say using any...

    Beginner mite help

    Thanks for the info. Have noticed exactly what you say. Some pests make leafs up curl, some down curl, some make them twisted, some deformed, some stunt/shut down the plant, broad mites seem to do all of the above with a vengeance.

    small hydro system

    My neighbor is moving and offered this system to me for $50. It comes with the pump, reservoir, and 5, 4 plant planters.   I know nothing about hydro systems, would this work and be any good for peppers...? Or a waste of time..?

As spider mites cause mostly pin holes, curled leafs, yellow dropping leafs, not deformed new growth like seen in your pics.Your type damage around my parts(sFL) is strictly...

    First pods

    Very nice, first pods are always celebrated....   Just an observation on this pic of yours, see the little pinholes you can see thru on a few leafs..? These are sometimes the tell tail signs of spider mites, are you spraying regularly..?   Not to get all worried, just might be something to check...
