    hydroponic Aero garden 1st time growing super hots in hydro

    Nice to hear. They start out slow, but they'll pick up pace around the month mark.

    hydroponic Aero garden 1st time growing super hots in hydro

    All 3 are doing well now, at about 6 weeks after planting, they're starting to leaf out and root heavily in the aero. They've hit that tipping point where there is enough leaf and root to start growing visibly day to day significantly. I had planted dwarf tomatoes in another aero and those are...

    hydroponic Aero garden 1st time growing super hots in hydro

    I have seen all germinate now, all 3 pods. It started around day 11 and all done by day 14. The room they are in is a porch and gets cooler, and of course no lights at night so it's cooler. They're all tiny little cotyledon's right now but they're going. I'm psyched up because I crossed my own...

    hydroponic Aero garden 1st time growing super hots in hydro

    I started the chinense seeds around new years eve. I'm sitting on about 10 days later without a germination yet. 3 pods with 2 seeds each. As of now not too concerned being as they can tend to take 2 weeks or more, but after that point I may start some in paper towel to transfer into the .

    hydroponic Aero garden 1st time growing super hots in hydro

    I'm wondering if it's worth effort to paper towel germinate and then place immediately in the sponge? The room it will be in will be cooler, so it might help to germinate outside the aero garden and put in as soon as seed pops in paper towel on heat mat? Quality of seed is good, came from my own...

    Thanks for the info. Yes what I'm planning is chinense, cross between a reaper & something else that I tried this past summer.

    hydroponic Aero garden 1st time growing super hots in hydro

    The room will probably be in the mid 60s air temp, it's a back room. Do you think it would make sense to paper towel germinate them and then place in the sponge?

    hydroponic Aero garden 1st time growing super hots in hydro

    Been a crazy year, haven't kept up here but have in all my home gardens. I picked up a few aero gardens (including the bounty elite so its taller/bigger). I attempted to cross my own peppers this year and have seeds from it. I've used the aero for lettuce and basil thus far and its simple...

    Following up to my original post. The replacement seeds have about a 50%+ germination rate so far, but it's only been a week. They're better than original seeds. I'm guessing the rest or a large portion will germinate in the coming week. Puckerbutt did honor replacement seeds and they seem like...

      I don't doubt they are a good source, I just had a bad experience this year and was letting others know. From my experience past year & this, the seeds remind me of old seeds or bad seeds because the germination is so low. The plants are also not a vibrant as my others from other sources right...

    I'd like to point out that I did contact pucker butt and they are sending me new seeds, so they do back it up, but the problem is having that bad of a germination to begin with. I am starting some sweet peppers today and i had some PB choc bhutlah CS's i wanted to start, but i dont' dare waste...

        I'd like to follow up to my original post several months ago. I did end up picking up a packet of the organic red carolina reaper seeds and their red ghost pepper. I planted 11 seeds of each (what came in envelope). I had planned to grow out a few and cull unnecessary ones. I varied the...

    Yeah, but wasn't sure if anyone had any recent experience. True to form on seeds? Good germination?

    I was thinking about picking up some seeds off puckerbutt this year, given issues with pepper joe last year. Anyone have recent experience for 2019/2020?    Were the peppers true? Was germination acceptable? Did the peppers turn out to be what you paid aka reaper was a reaper not a habanero...

    My Zone 6a, CT, 1st Time Growing From Seed

    Take a look earlier in this log with the double pot thing I did. It basically allowed me to grow longer inside & extend the root growth but not the width. It's kind of jimmy-rigged but it worked amazingly well for me. I'm dying to want to get going again, but I know if I do that now I'll be...

    I had red/yellow reapers, red ghosts, numex twilight and some numex no heat habs. They were about 85-90% germination and true to form on all that I germinated. I did give several plants away to friends, but never heard anything bad in response to those. I was happy with their seeds for this past...

    I'm responding to add my current experiences with PJ's here. I don't mean for any of this to bash, but better inform others based on my experiences and what I've learned this year. This past year was my first year growing from seed. Previous years I only had a few nursery bought plants. Sometime...

    My Zone 6a, CT, 1st Time Growing From Seed

    It has been a huge learning experience. It taught me a lot of what I need to do going forward, as I tried to sum up earlier.   I'm pretty sure it's well known PJ's is that way. Had I done a little more research I would've seen that, but the flashy site and high prices almost begged to be good. I...

    My Zone 6a, CT, 1st Time Growing From Seed

    I'm a bit past due on final season update as things have been quite busy and some points I've learned this year. This is kind of some final thoughts and points I'm mentioning from this year learning. In early september I removed the shade cloth. I probably should've done that sooner. The plants...
