    Help me mix!

    Many (most, in fact) of my plants are now outgrowing their 1 gallon containers and it is time to repot/plant outside. I've got around 240, most of them are going in the ground since I got excellent results last year, but I'm putting a small group (30-50) into 5 or 7 gallon containers to find out...

    misc Live Ladybugs

    I got some a month ago. Was in the single digits when they arrived but I'd say 98% were alive. Got them through a third party seller at Amazon. About $20 shipped for 1500. They work WONDERS, at least in my enclosed indoor greenhouse. I had a pretty severe infestation and after about 4 days I...

    Property/Garden Size

    I have just short of 2 acres in Blacksburg, Virginia. Despite the presence of Virginia Tech University land is practically free up here (without the house the property is valued at less than 10k). My orchard takes up roughly three quarters of an acre, and another three quarters of an acre are...

    "Clumping" growing technique?

    Yes, most of my bhuts last year looked like that as well, and they were single plants

    "Clumping" growing technique?

    It isn't?? I was really happy to get about 50 pods or so at a time from my plants that were in the ground (and a hell of a lot bigger than the one in the video). Is that actually a modest amount?

    "Clumping" growing technique?

    Hmm, if so he's a bit misleading in the video because he keeps referring to it as "a plant" and "the plant". If that is indeed what he does then I don't quite see the point ... it's basically just like throwing what would normally be three 3 gallon plants (or three 5 gallon plants, depending on...

    "Clumping" growing technique?

    And what would that technique be? Seems unlikely he's talking about any kind of germination technique though, how you germinate a seed shouldn't really affect the productivity later in life I would think

    "Clumping" growing technique?

    Yeah, watching it again you are right. Possibly a 10 gallon or thereabouts? Still an IMPRESSIVE amount of pods

    "Clumping" growing technique?

    Anyone seen Neils latest video and can shed some light on this "Clumping" growing technique of his? I wouldn't mind a plant with 140 pods in what looks like a 5 gallon pot ...

    Really? The size of the SPOON is what we would be curious about in this video?

    seeds Douglah germination rates

    I got Douglah seeds from 4 different sources this season (1 commercial, 3 from the forums), and germination rates have been horrible. Out of 30 seeds tried so far, 9 have germinated. I use the tried and true moist paper towel in baggy at 80 F. My average rate for the 24 varieties I'm growing...

    lighting LED lighting

    Hmm, seems opinions here are as divided as they are on the rest of the net. Smokemaster, what do you consider the minimum amount of bands to use? 3 as most of the commercial models use is not enough? If you can build one you think is better than the model I linked to for the same price you have...

    lighting LED lighting

    Anyone have any experience with LED grow lights? Specifically the higher powered UFO types like this http://www.htgsupply...-Grow-Light.asp .  From the web in general it seems opinions are mixed, although since this is still very new tech a lot of the reviews and opinions are referencing first...

    NOw what have we here ??

    Yes I isolated it already. I was hoping there was something I could do for the plant though, I've only got 4 nagabon seedlings. Already got rid of the few aphids that were hanging around on it

    NOw what have we here ??

    Most of the other plants also have aphids though, some more than this guy, and none are exhibiting these kinds of symptoms. Can a small handful of aphids cause that kind of damage?

    NOw what have we here ??

    In my short time growing peppers I've seen a lot of pests and plant problems but this is new: This leaf was taken from a nagabon seedling at the back of the greenhouse that don't get much attention. Just this one leaf exhibited these symptoms, couldn't even see a trace on any of the...
