    CAP 524, c. chacoense. Pic taken 8/4. No flowers, yet, but it is purported to like flower- ing and setting fruit in colder temperatures, so maybe Fall weather will prompt some of the same. H x W: 29” x 26” (73cm x 65cm): Has always been a great looking plant, foliage-wise.

    C. chacoense, purple flower. Almost died in the Spring Suck, so it was pruned back hard, but in the last week has really ramped up flowering and setting berries, and turned into a nice plant. Pic taken on 8/4. H x W: 22” x 18” (55cm x 45cm):

    Red Tepin (@Pr0digal_son) in an 8” clay bulb pan. A very slow grower from the get-go, so was never topped. When it finally forked, it was a triple. No flowers, yet, hoping for some pods off this one. Pic taken 8/4. H xW: 29” x 12” (75cm x 30cm): This Red Tepin was a fast grower, so had to be...

    Trippaul Threat (PdN x BMJ) Community Grow

    The green phase has shown up in other TT variants, as well. Some of them have had a lime green phase, which is very cool. I hope your plant produces the peach-colored pods. The Trippaul Threat ‘White Lightning’ F9 in an 8” clay bulb pan. I pruned the long branches back to some promising new...

    We are having some nice weather at the moment. Forecast for above normal highs next week, but no triple digits, at least.

    Variegated Jalapeno Grow Log

    All of the main stalks of the plant above are fasciated, and the branches grow up at very steep angles.

    A brace of c. flexuosum, pic from 8/4. H x W: 21” x 30” (53 cm x 75”) H x W: 32” x 35” (80cm x 87cm) #2NC containers: The larger plant is very intolerant of sun, gets wilted even under the canopy’s filtered light. There is a berry or two buried inside the small- er plant’s foliage, otherwise...

    Capucinno Chiltepín, pic 8/4. H x W: 36” x 39” (90cm x 97cm), #2NC container: This plant has really loaded up with berries in the week since this pic was taken. If it stays healthy, it should be very productive.

    It is one of the bright spots in the grow season this Summer. It has dropped leaves, as well, but the chinenses and bushy wilds have dropped so many it sometimes looks like Fall on the deck. For most of the plants, the big leaves are gone. You are my hero, @CraftyFox!! I'm still going to dive...

    Variegated Jalapeno Grow Log

    Nary a white or ivory branch on any of my four Variegated Jalapeño ‘Mattapeño’ plants. I keep hoping some will emerge soon, but it is getting late in the season. The first two are in #2NC pots. These pics from 5 days ago. There are a lot of new pods on each of The four plants. H x W: 32“ x...

    Don’t give up hope, Mr. @FGpepperguy. I am just starting to see evidence of pods and berries. Even with the heat waves, some of the wild plants have been quietly busy, and now fruit is becoming evident. Hoping the c. chinenses wake up soon. The Purple Thunder F4 Mystery is the only chinense...

    Plants huddled in the shade during the heat waves. Shelves on wheels make moving back and forth between sun and shade easier.
