    P. Dreadie Memorial Group Grow 2016

    Hi all,   I've read many great things about the P. Dreadie and would love to grow it this year.  Would anyone here have any seeds they would be willing to sell me?

    Thank you all for the warm welcome back :D   I've been searching the forum and still haven't had any luck finding anyone with theses seeds listed for sale.  Holding our hope someone will see this.  Stay safe everyone.

    Is the offer still open?  Would LOVE some Thai chiles for making sriracha.

    I'm back! 8 Year hiatus and desperately missing my peppers!

    Wow, it's been a long 8 years since I've been growing my own peppers.  Right after I got super into it, at least 15 pepper plants in containers and making my own hot sauce, we took a new job and sold EVERYTHING!  We lived a vagabond lifestyle and moved around the US with our employers for the...

    Grow Light - Regular Fluorescent ok?

    I actually haven't given them any nutes at all so that can't be it. The light isn't any warmer than it has been since the begining and they are about 1 1/2- 2" away from it so I can only think it's due to them going an extra day than ever before without water. But, they haven't really changed...

    Grow Light - Regular Fluorescent ok?

    Sorry it's been a little while since the last update. I had to go away this past weekend again so the babies were alone for 3 days. They got a little dry and some of them are looking kinda poor with leaf curl issues and some of the cotyledons turning yellow and falling off. What do you guys...

    Grow Light - Regular Fluorescent ok?

    Whew! The pepper babies made it great while I was gone! They are all looking very good and the mix was still a tad moist and I bottom watered this morning and they sucked it up quickly. That is very good for me to know that they still weren't dried out and making it good because I found out I...

    Longest chile competition

    What the heck I'm in. I don't stand a chance since this is my first year growing from seed. BUT, I do have 4 NuMex Big Jims going already. I have high hopes for Curly here:

    AJs 2012 Season - A Pictorial Discussion

    I would only do it because I have left over and probably wouldn't want to store what seed starting mix I have left over until next year. But only time will tell what I will end up really doing..... They will need nutrients when I go to the solo cups, or when I go to final potting? Probably...

    Wow, that looks like 100% germ rate from that pic :eek:. Awesome! Thanks for the info on the soil etc. I think I'll stick to my original plan of mixing my own when it's time for them to go to their final container. Do you think when it's time for them to move on to the Solo cups I can use...

    Grow Light - Regular Fluorescent ok?

    All of the peppers seem to be doing really well. I have 9 going now and I have them in a single line directly underneath the light about an 1" away. Those 9 now fill up the length of the bulb. I forgot to post about the tests I have been doing on the bottom tray watering over night since I am...

    AJs 2012 Season - A Pictorial Discussion

    Your peppers are looking great AJ! What kind of potting soil do you use? Last year I mixed my own from Al's 5-1-1 mix. I would like to do something different to be easier and more cost effective if possible. Of course I don't want to do anything that will be less than optimal for my plants...

    Grow Light - Regular Fluorescent ok?

    Thanks for the input everyone :). Everything seems to be looking good this morning. The temp seems to be ranging from 84-86. The Lemon Pepper's are doing much better since I transplanted them yesterday. I even had one more of my Choc Hab's pop. So far this is my germ stats: NuMex Big Jim...
