    pest Holes in Peppers

    i had several peppers with small holes like that last year, and i believe it was EARWIGS that were responsible. i feel like the holes on mine were brown/black around the edge, although maybe that only happened over time and yours are just "fresher".

    Sulsa's 2022 grow log

    feel like i once read (and it's logical) that the shape of a leaf is designed to make it catch and funnel water down the stem of the plant to the earth it's buried in. it could be the case that the leaf will turn upside-down if the plant feels itself to be too wet and it does not want to...

    Tokyo off-season 2021-2022: More Tent Fun

    i bought this light in january, and it runs quite cool imo. the fan is big and does make some noise, but not enough to be bothersome, if you had the tv on or were in the next room. this is the first one i've ever bought though, so i have no comparison for the loudness/heat compared to others...

    Growyourown 2022: TURNING IT WAY UP

    another 3 weeks later, guess it's time for an update. once all the plants are up and have leaves, from one day to the next it's hard to see or appreciate the growth happening. but compared to the pics from my last post, we are off to the races!! without further ado: reapers red and purple -...

    Growyourown 2022: TURNING IT WAY UP

    took two weeks to make it, but here's an update. potted up to 4" pots i got off amazon after jjj's advice. they arrived on the 5th and i transplanted some 40 plants. with about ten still left to go, i ran out of dirt. amazon delivered some in two days and i did the rest, plus the less advanced...

    recipe-wanted Percentage of acid or acid by weight methods?

    i am not an expert (probably barely even a novice) but the short answer, i think, is no. the reason being that the initial pH of the peppers/food items is going to vary somewhat, and then magnify that by the fact (unless i'm wrong) that pH is a logarithmic scale, meaning pH 4.0 is ten times more...

    news What's the latest news on "Pepper X" ?

    i've read about ed being slimy, and i'm not here to say anything about "pepper x" specifically. instead, i am having one of those stream-of-consciousness moments where i've just thought, strictly speaking, isn't "the hottest pepper in the world" the one single pod that registers the highest SHU...

    Growyourown 2022: TURNING IT WAY UP

    the light has a powerful fan and is quite cool so i definitely could move it closer. it is quite bright though, as i tried to find the highest PARS value for the price range. i thought i read (maybe on the amazon ad for this or another light) to have it 24-30 inches away prior to germ, and 18...

    once again i have done what i said i was going to do. last sunday the 23rd i started soaking some more seeds. i rationed them so that i still retained 6 original seeds for next year of each of the varieties i was sowing more of. (all the seeds came in "10-packs" but included 14-16 actual seeds -...
