    lighting what color LED lights should I get to induce flowering?

    I have a fully mature plant that I want to continue growing indoors to get it to produce a pod. It was the last plant to mature.. Should I get white, red & blue, or full spectrum (red, blue, orange, and white)?   These are all 12x12 square panels w/225 LEDs in them   Thanks

    hot-sauce Saw this commercially available sauce in the market ystrdy...

    ... and snatched it up. Was aware of this Texas company before but never bought any because I gravitate towards hotter stuff & never saw anything from them on the shelves here hotter than jalapeno. Anyway, I saw their prominent end cap display (prolly because its super bowl weekend here in the...

    Thoughts & prayers out to our Indian brethren because of cyclone

    I say this because, not only are they a close ally, their land (India & Bangladesh) is where some of the hottest peppers in the world come from among other attributes. Hope they are able to ride this out w/ as little damage to life & property as possible.  ...

    Question about one of my non-producing, plants

    pesticide blamed on mass bumblebee death

    just heard this on the radio. I believe it was sprayed on trees to combat aphids. They said they covered the trees w/ netting to prevent more deaths. Bumblebee's are good insects.   :,0,1466945.story

    Just made it under the wire, 3 h 18 m to go to 2013 ;) New grow started using a light for the first time this year. Don't know how many will survive (fingers crossed) because my grow room is not a dedicated grow room & consequently the temp is not above 70. Click on pics for larger view. Not got...

    flavor Anyone heard of the 4-7 day wait between pepper tests/taste?

    I ask because I saw one chili eater on youtube say that one should wait 4-7 days between pepper testing/tasting in order for capsacin receptors in mouth & throat to re-open. That way, one will get the full effect of the pepper. The reasoning makes sense to me but I'm wondering if it is in fact true?

    Anyone here ever grow Dundicuts?

    I saw these at a local spice market :eek: & couldn't resist picking some up. From Pakistan. I tried one & they are definitely not as hot as say a Hab but they are still hot enough for me to use in dishes as I put Tabasco, Texas Pete Hotter hot sauce, Valentina Picante, etc... on many of the...

    water Over-watered plants issue

    'ello. Here's the gist of my dilemma: went away on a week-long trip and it seems that my roommate was a tad too liberal in watering 3 of my plants. So much so that the developing flowers turned brown and died :( I was grateful that my roommate watched them for me considering that there are @ 12...

    jalapeno storage question

    Wondering what to do w/ excess jalapenos as I can't eat them as fast as my 2 jalapeno plants are producing them. I was wondering if its possible just to place them on the counter to dry or are they too thick-walled of a pepper for that?
