As you may have seen in another post (see details here), I've sprouted a ton of Habanero de Arbol seeds. So, looks like I'll be adding this one to this year's grow as well. Here's one I've already transplanted. I'll probably do a few more, just to be safe.
Hey Rick your seedlings are doing nicely ...we have had some cooler temps like you here in Connecticut,so
I've had to schlep them back indoors...howeva after sunday..temps should be in the 40'sF at night..so they
will be out 24/7....the male hummingbirds have arrived...ladies to follow soon...look forward to them each
Spring....carry on brother
@Wiriwiri Thanks Sandy! Yeah, it LOOKS like the 30s are in the past now. A warming trend is beginning, so schlepping everything outside for the last time is definitely coming soon. Love hummingbirds. They tell ya when Spring is here!
Purple Thunder Mystery showing its' intelligence. The first plant was planted a couple days ago - fresh from it's sheltered, pampered beginnings. The second plant was planted out about 10 days ago, exposed to full-blown, all day sun. So, it just put on it shade look and keeps chillin, lol. I'm sure the first plant will catch up in short order.
Plants have settled in and are starting to do some serious growing. Had some fairly intense heat spells the last few weeks, but several plants are still flowering and setting pods. Managed to get all the peppers caged, so now they can definitely get their grow on lol.
Well, it looks like I haven't updated this thread lately, but there's not really a lot to say. Pepper plants continue to grow, but the heat and humidity has taken its' toll. I know some folks say peppers LOVE heat, but I'm not so sure. When constantly in the 90's with the heat index over a 100, my plants just don't set pods. Sure, they flower but they don't set pods. It's clearly evident when you look at the plants. Early on, when the temps were in the 80's, you can see fruit setting nicely. But when it got extreme, there's no pods. All the pods are low on the plants. Nothing on the upper half.
