Marturos 2024 Glog.

It's that time of the year, cold & gloomy outside, & inside the magic is happening. Those little green pepper plants are pushing up
towards the artificial sun. Who came up first? The early Jalapeรฑo, Serrano, & the Sugar Rush Stripy. A little game we play LOL.

This is the best set up we have ever had before. 4 LED grow lights 2 heating mats, room stays at 66 F at night & 74 F during the day.
With 22 varieties & 50 plants we hope to have a real special grow for the 24 season, with a lot of great tasting peppers. ๐Ÿ˜€

When I joined THP I had just moved from Fluorescents lights to the new LED lights. Outside everything is about the same, it's the indoor
adventure that has changed for the better. Compact high output grow lights, heating mats instead of heating cables without thermostats
it's a lot of fun once again.

This is my first Glog. Welcome to the ride. :welcome:

Thanks @MarcV I look to you for guidance about Bonnets, the seeds are are from Baker Creek from a lad
in Jamaica & they are addicting to say the least. Next year I want to try some of your favorites Like the Bahamian Goat, looks very good.
Beautiful setup! I will follow your glog. Good luck in the new season!
Thanks @SineNomine, I will following your Glog as well , You have some really cool varieties you are growing. ๐Ÿ˜€

Great job man looks great
Thanks @jgundo When we bought this 72 year old house it came with Rooms off the basement like the 12' x 6' room insulated with soil.
We did have 2 eight foot High Output Fluorescents with only 2.75' of real growing space out of 8' under each light.
Now we feel like we are bouncing around a much bigger grow room.

Thanks for the update, I will be following your Glog.
We are growing both the Amarillo & Rojo forms of Aji Chombo from Panama this season.
Hopefully the Aji Chombo will be a Fragrant, fruity pod like the Bonnets I've heard they are very :hot: ๐Ÿ˜‰

I just checked the Baker Creek web site... looks like an interesting bonnet to give a try. Too bad they don' send seeds to the European Union anymore, otherwise I would have ordered the seeds... ๐Ÿ™„

And who knows where BC gets their seeds, look at the so called Datil pepper they carry. I have seed now for a true datil this season.
Where do you get your bonnet seeds from? Do all US seed companies refuse to send overseas?
 
I get most of my seeds from WHP. Justin sends the seeds as a birthday card. They usually arrive in about a week time. There's no tracking but also no issues with import taxes/fees or customs. Same is true for Texas Hot Peppers. WHP has a large list of scotch bonnet varieties.

If the BC scotch bonnet is a true heirloom it may well be worth a try... based on the picture they look legit...
