    breeding Cross stabilisation - question

    Hi everyone   I've come across this statement a few times now (on reddit though, so I've been taking it with a grain of salt) that if your plant has inconsistently shaped pods on the same plant, it must be "unstable".   I thought the following was true, however I'm now starting to doubt myself...

    D3monic's crosses - F3 and F4 testing

    Admin: we have a separate thread for this, but it's 56 pages long already. I have over 30+ crosses to review in the next few weeks (45 plants, most have pods) so i figured I'll spam the hell out of the main thread with this, instead I'm hoping it'll be ok for me to log everything in this post...

    Bottoms of leaves brown/drying out

    Hi guys   I have 10 DWC peppers in my greenhouse, the temperatures are between 15C (60F) and 30C (85F). Humidity is over 90% at night and is about 55-60% at day time.   They get plenty of sun, and I run my budget grow LEDs for about 6 hours at night to help out with reduced light hours. All DWC...

    Hi everyone   Hard to see from these pics but my Moruga plant has just started developing this brown/yellow stuff on top of some of the biggest leaves (nothing underneath).

    seeds Conjoined stem on a seedling

    I've had a few pods in the past which were conjoined i.e. two pods grow off one stem.   But never have I had two stems of a seedling  grow together, and they are actually joined together, except they split off at the top as two separate plants. This would've definitely been a single seed as this...
