DeadSilent ‘21-‘22 Pepper

Hey Pepperheads! DeadSilent here starting a grow log for my so far 18 varieties of hot and super hot peppers! I will be adding 20+ when we get closer to 2022! As of today the majority of my seeds come from Baker Creek, but there are a few from Sherwood Seeds, Waylands Chiles, and Fatalii. I have a few more varieties coming from White Hot Peppers to be added to the line up!

Starting this grow I plan on keeping 36 of the 66 that have sprouted. I would keep them all but I am limited on indoor space for the winter. I hate to cull any of the herd, so I’ll be trying to give away the 30 that I can’t fit into my tent over the winter. As we get closer to spring I want to have close to 40 different varieties. 2 of each kind for a total of 80 plants.

So getting started I’ll make a list of the equipment I plan on using.
The indoor setup:
2- Durolux 2’ T5 HO Grow Lights
2- iPower 10x20 Heat mats w/ Temp Control

5x5x8 Ultra Yield Tent
HLG 600 Rspec
8” AC Infinity Exhaust w/ Temp & Humidty Control
8” AC Infinity Carbon Filter
Honeywell HT-900
GE 7-day Programmable PowerStrip

I’ll be using this mix to transplant into 4” nursery pots. After that I plan on potting up to #2 nursery pots in hopes that size will hold them over until Spring and then transplant into their final 5 gallon fabric pots.

Yeah, off to a great beginning!

Have you grown Datil before?
They can pack a punch. Grew some of
Romy6’s Florida seeds for a few seasons.
Great production from those plants.

Good luck getting into the #2’s…

Thanks PaulG! I have not grow the Datil’s before. This batch of seeds came from Baker Creek. I haven’t had any issues with seeds I’ve bought from them. So crossing my fingers for some productive plants!

Nice varieties you got going. Don't forget to remove the nets when up-potting. jmo

It’s been a good week for the peppers! The tent is all setup, and everyone transplanted to 4” pots. Found some old 1020 trays and put together a sweet little setup.

It took a little bit of patience but I got them all organized and they’re looking pretty good so far!

It’s been a week since my last post and the peppers are doing good! I may have over watered them when I transplanted. I gave them a couple sprays tonight since they’re finally drying out 8 days later. They seem to be liking the mix I made for them!
