Updated pics from this morning. All varieties except Cumari di para, Bishops Crown, Aji Pineapple, Tepin x Lemon Drop have been planted/transplanted. Those seeds just showed up yesterday in the mail so will get those germinating tonight. The hydroponics nutrients seem to really be helping along my OW Lemon Drop. Seedlings with there first true leaves will get a very weak fertilizer solution later this week.

I noticed your Flora Gro nutes in the background there (not to mention the rockwool for some of your starts). Do you also grow hydroponically?
 
nice list!
 
I dont grow hydroponically, I am using the two cup methods for all of my plants this year. So I am mixing the nutes and putting them in the bottom cups. Khang Starr on youtube does this with great results so I thought i would try it out. None of my seedlings have had any fertilizer as of yet.

Things are progressing, basement is only 60 degrees so growth is a bit slow. Once the roots reach the second cup they have really taken off growth-wise. The AJi's are growing about 3 times as fast as all of the other annums/chinenses. Started tomatoes and eggplant the other day and transplanted my tomatillos into the red solo cups.

Things are progressing nicely!! The Ajis are still outgrowing the other varieties as of right now with the same nutrients being used.

I pruned back my Aji Lemon in hopes of spurring some new growth as it hasnt done much all winter regardless of light levels and fertilizing. Transplanted it again a few weeks ago into the same pot with fresh Fox Farms Soil.
