    Tokyo off-season 2021-2022: More Tent Fun

    Thanks! Haha, yep, it's a major award. Got another hab that opened up; just two cotys this time, but it looks healthy. Also two hooks for the jalapeno, another for SR Cream, and a helmet poking out for the Huacho Amarillo. So things seem to be going well. I don't think the seed thing is...

    Jealous of your variety as always, but looking forward to seeing the labors of your fruits. :D And we're off!

    Tokyo off-season 2021-2022: More Tent Fun

    The new kids on the block are doing well! I'm particularly stoked about the three-coty JA red hab. It's not that easy to see here, but there is a hook from the Zapotec jalapenos, and the SR cream is one I'm really hoping comes in well. To clarify, almost every seed in these actually did kick...

    scovilles 800-1200 scoville range

    I'm a big fan of Casados. It's been prolific and easy to grow for me; it tolerates all my screwups and just keeps on going.

    bottling Mold Issue

    This was my first thought as well. There's a lot that happens in a sauce that's still active, which you obviously know; based on that, I wouldn't expect this to be mold.

    Tokyo off-season 2021-2022: More Tent Fun

    OK! As we get rolling on the next phase of this ongoing series of marginal successes and impressive failures, let's take stock. Currently happy, healthy, and producing fruit: Casados Sugar Rush Peach Recently rooted via coffee filters and just planted in coir: Jamaican Red Hab (hi Paul!)...

    Tokyo summer 2021: Tent and AC, because 35C is not fun.

    Finishing out the season, I've started a ferment with a bunch of Casados, a few SRP, and some CGN 21500 and Ghost that Alejandro provided as a ristra. Onion slices on top to keep things under the weight; I found out I didn't even have garlic in the kitchen, so this is probably the simplest...

    Tokyo summer 2021: Tent and AC, because 35C is not fun.

    So Alejandro dropped in again to adopt some plants, and brought along a hilarious Korea-themed ristra for my wife's birthday. :D Which leaves us with just two plants in the tent, my wonderfully viney Casados and the painfully slowly-ripening Sugar Rush Peach. Despite its sloth, I do also...

    Thanks! It certainly is. :D

    Tokyo summer 2021: Tent and AC, because 35C is not fun.

    Thanks again to talas for the suggestion: I re-bagged one of my Datils and my JR Hab (gonna get that bugger yet) in Biobizz Light, so hopefully we see some improvement over the next week or ten. If they start looking better, I'll get the rest transplanted (with the exception of the other Datil...

    Thanks! It looks like I can currently get Biobizz Light or Coir Mix here; never heard of that before. It'd doesn't say anything specifically about being bug-free, but looking around, people seem to have good things to say about it in that regard.

    Tokyo summer 2021: Tent and AC, because 35C is not fun.

    Thanks for the input, Talas! Definitely appreciate it. While I haven't changed anything with the nutrients or lights, these plants are in a different batch of coir than I was using previously, so it would make sense if that's where the problem is coming from. Unfortunately, the whole reason I...

    Tokyo summer 2021: Tent and AC, because 35C is not fun.

    Thanks for the offer, as always, but I think I actually found a few more red hab seeds last time I broke out the 'bank.' I'll set aside some time this week to at least start working on these plants and possibly get a few of those seeds in some coir. :)

    Tokyo summer 2021: Tent and AC, because 35C is not fun.

    See, that's the thing. The JR Hab in particular I absolutely don't want to get rid of until I can get at least a couple fruits out of it for seed. At least the plants seem to be stable, so I should have time to get to them and actually try to figure out the problem. I've thought about trying...

    Tokyo summer 2021: Tent and AC, because 35C is not fun.

    Rounding out the summer, I'm finally getting around to putting up the problems I've been having. Honestly, I'm right on the edge of getting rid of four out of six of the plants I've got growing, if for no reason other than not having the energy to try and figure out what their damn issue is. I...

    Tokyo summer 2021: Tent and AC, because 35C is not fun.

    Not a lot to update on; one good thing is that the SR Peach on the top shelf, despite looking like crap, is actually fruiting pretty well. I haven't trimmed the plants on the bottom, so it's a bit of a jungle down there, though I don't see any pods just from looking in. In less neutral news...

    Thanks, CD. We're doing pretty well, certainly on the way back to normal; now to continue fighting for vaccination appointments, which the local government has made obnoxiously difficult. Never let anyone tell you "Japanese efficiency" is a real thing. :rolleyes:

    Well, following the announcements forum on the old site never worked for me, so I had no idea the site was going down... at first I assumed it was another April Fools' 'joke,' but not this time. Oh well. My wife, my son, and I all caught COVID right around the same time, right before the site...

    Welcome to The NEW Hot Pepper!

    It looks like we can no longer link images except from a few approved sources like imgur... is that an oversight or is it just no longer allowed?

    Welcome to The NEW Hot Pepper!

    Didn't check the glogs forum until after I read this post... there's a lot of improvements, but wow, that layout really is just tragically bad. Was hoping there'd be a setting to disable it, but I'm not seeing it. :neutral:
