    Growing/selling super hots on the side

    I got a buddy who has an agg type business.  I wont go into what he produces or sells because its irrelevant.  I have told him to come on here and look around. His main product, I believe, he will start selling at farmers markets next year, I think thats part of his plan.  They are expanding...

    What did I order: Chocolate Moruga Brains

    What exactly is this pepper?   I ordered seeds from Refining Fire Chili's as I have in the past.   I THOUGHT I was ordering Chocolate Brain Strain, but I guess I didnt read close enough.   The description says its a Butch T development so I am sure it will be good, but searching through Google...

    Freezing: how dead is dead

    So here is my long saga in short form: I got a new job that required me to be away from home for 2.5 months.  I just got back tonight.  My "friend" that was supposed to come cut all my plants back, dig them out, re-pot them, put them in my grow tent, etc... before the first freeze completely and...

    Do hornworms travel in packs

    Found a damn hornworm on my Jays Peach Ghost Scorpions.  Murdered it with fire.   Do these things travel in packs or once you get rid of one, you are usually good?   I will obviously keep on the lookout for more, didnt see any tonight.   It was a big bastard.

    cloning phytophthora blight and cloning

    So I figured out one of my plants had Phytophthora blight due to it losing almost all of its leaves and the stems dying from the bottom up.  I started cutting back the dead stems and it was basically into the main "trunk" of the plant.  There was one stem that was still alive(and still had most...

    Ate My First Aji Sugar Rush

    Im not 100% sure this pepper had fully ripened, or even if the phenotype is right(my other Aji's are putting out way different pods IMO) but I ate it anyway.  Its been on the plant for ~2 months now, maybe longer.  Decided tonight was the night I was going to eat it up.  Tomorrow is the day my...

    Weird Aji Sugar Rush

    Ive got 5 Aji Sugar Rush and 3 Aji Pineapple plants growing.   I got a few pods now on the Sugar Rush plants, one's been on for 2 months and just now ripe(i think).  The other plants have put out pods now too.  One plant puts out green pods(its got a second pod on it now thats green, just like...

    shade Shade cloth %

    Here in Dallas it looks like monsoon season is over and its now going to sunny and "warm" for the next 3-4 months.  Plants are already looking like they are cooking during the day as they are drooping just a bit, but then come back when the sun goes down.  So thinking its time for some shade...

    nutrients BLS, nute deficiency or simply over watered???

    We have had in the past 2-3 weeks here in Dallas A LOT of rain.  Last rain was Friday I think it was.  My raised beds drain very well, but the soil does retain water.  I was thinking that all this was was over watered plants, leaves turning yellow and dropping, but nothing else on the plant...

    2 peppers, 1 flower???

    Just noticed this on one of my Reapers that is the most prolific plant I have.     It appears to be pushing 2 conjoined peppers out of 1 flower.  Not sure what to call this.

    preservation pepper vinegar

    Anybody ever made pepper vinegar before?   They have it(or used to anyway) at a restaurant called Steak and Shake and a few others(maybe Whataburger).  Its basically peppers in white vinegar.  Dont think its anything to hot usually(maybe jap's, maybe).   Anyway, they supposedly discontinued it...

    water Talk to me about PVC drip irrigation

    Is it as simple as the youtube videos make it look?   Hose connector, on off ball valve, elbows, t's and caps?   Build your manifold, cap the ends, drill holes?     Im thinking this is the way to go with my raised beds I am building this year.  I will run a hose from my spigot on my house out...

    Introduced a few newbies to super hots

    Brought one of my reapers(which are still producing immature, small pods, with not full heat potential, no seeds, no real placenta) to a new years eve party at my uncles last night.  I would put these definitely above hab's on the heat level, but not by much.  Maybe the high end of a hab which...

    Left last Thursday morning and just got back to my house tonight so gone just about 8 days.   Wednesday night I had transplanted 11 seedlings that had popped and were about 2" tall from my seed starter into solo cups.   Also had my 4 Reapers that were doing pretty well save for some edema from...

    rjacobs 2016 GLOG

    Figured I would start up a GLOG as this will be my first big year.  Last year all I did was Carolina Reaper and got 9 plants out of 10 seeds.  They took forever to germinate.  Started 5 in paper towel/zip lock bag.  Nothing happened after 2-3 weeks so moved them into hydro seed starter.  Also...

    grow room(closet) humidity issue

    Got my 4 reaper plants indoors in a closet(roughly 4x6) with a 900w Mars hydro LED and a small fan on a 12 hour timer(going to step up to 14 and then 16 after plants get used to LED).   They are showing signs of over watering(yellow leaves dropping, flowers dropping, and now some edema).  I...

    overwintering bug pre-treatment before bringing plants inside for winter

    As has been evidence by all of my amateur questions, I am new to pepper growing.   I am going to have to bring my 4 reaper plants inside soon.  Temps are predicted to get down below 40 here in Dallas by mid month.  I am not interested in doing the traditional "over winter" of cutting everything...

    chinense Tried first super hot: Carolina Reaper

    Decided last spring on a whim to grow some Carolina Reapers.  Never grew hot peppers, dont know anything much about growing anything.   Got 1 pod off 4 plants this year and it was a tiny little pod.  I understand they tend to do this first year and second will be a lot bigger.  I've got lots of...
