    31/84 is really good. You must have had your germination conditions dialed in. Well done.

    Something seems off about those. Time will tell. 🤔 Germ rates not actually looking too bad, just slow. Day 35ish?

    Sorry, what were you saying? Couldn’t hear you over the raging Urubamba river. You know you were talking to one of the few people who actually GO to South America to sort out this Capsicum taxonomy stuff? I get you think you’re into botany. It’s just funny watching you call John a pseudo...

    Instead of that, simply sprinkle some loose airy medium ontop to slightly bury it, then water that in, it should help pull it off as it emerges from that new sprinkled layer of medium.

    :lol: Too many. Correcting major mistakes requires major work. Lets GO! Tease them a little deeper into the corners next time. They'll pull that seed hull off as they emerge. GERMINATION RATE UPDATE: Looking like up to 10% germination rate at the 25 day mark or so. NO EXCUSES. Do...

    We shouldn't even be calling them "peppers"...

    Not only did we save the yellow version, looks like we also saved the red 😎

    You should get at least one. Croupier?! I always win, but I always loose by choice. Until someone actually beats me, then I pass the torch and they can become host and supply free seeds every year! :beer: It's their fault anyway! They practically begged for Aji Charapita! I saw an...

    They’ll pop. Just don’t give up on them. After a month, a change of scenery can trigger germination too, so long as you’re not letting them dry out or rot. Either way. You’ll get something. I’ve done nothing more than what you see in my photos. First layer compost, then seed, then vermiculite...

    I get it. Trust me. It’s challenging. Again, by design. A feature not a flaw. Everyone’s on the same level playing field though, as far as seed goes. The Jan 1 to Jan 1 thing has always been the deal. So northern growers know that by now. I do hear ya though dude. Right. Hopefully too many...

    I was very open about needing to freshen this inventory up from the beginning of us chatting about Aji Charapita. This is sort of by design. A challenging growdown year, uncertain seed viability and a mystery poll to boot. Post in thread 'Growdown Throwdown 2023'...

    There have been more since I snapped that photo. Besides I figured the promise of old seeds, grim outlooks and the threat of actual work/challenge would deter future seed snipers who always seem to vote and get seeds but never post after that 🤣 @bpiela Yours has to be 8” tall by now and...

    Who knows. Took a few double handfuls of berries, slapped them into a Ninja, pulse a few, sifted, and scattered. Thousands? Maybe 2,000? NOW WE ARE TALKING! LETS GOOOOOOOOOO!

    You just have the touch Ben! That's what I'm hoping for anyway! Hoping you didn't mix up seeds and/or trying to pull a fast one on us! If you got three.... there's hope!
