Ya got a good look to that start Paul !

Good luck through the indoor grow..............pretty exciting!

Looks like you have everything covered...heat,beauty,flavor. I see everyone is sowing early this season,I am trying to hold off until March 1. I have a couple goals set for this season. One is going against the norm,start later and achieve similar results. Good luck this year,and count me in as a follower.
 
Nice work Paul and nice grow list!! Will that list be a first and final or is it likely to morph and grow like most peoples seem to do ;) :D
 
Dang Paul! Goin all out from the get go this year! Flavor and heat a plenty on that list! Can't wait to see what happens next at the clonemeister's palace!
 
PaulyG!!!!!!! I'm here man. Didn't even see you started another GLOG. Excited to follow my friend. THe lineup looks awesome! Good luck in 2013 and happy growing!
 
Hi Paul
Another ambitious grow list I see. Are you going to be trying any new techniques this year? It was pretty cool checking out your experiments with cloning last year. Good luck with your season!
 
Hi Paul , I didnt really comment much on your glog last season but i was there reading through every bit of it , and ill be following your 2013 grow just the same , Best of luck mate .

Thanks, Greg. I always hold my breath until things get going!
Hope yur grow is as great as last year's!

Woohoo. #2 to post. Good luck with your. Grow. Any clones ?!?
Hey, KD! I may try to clone the bushy Yellow Aji.
Good luck on your grow, brother!

Howdy, John, thanks for the good wishes. Good luck with
your 'less is more' approach!

Nice work Paul and nice grow list!! Will that list be a first and final or is it likely to morph and grow like most peoples seem to do ;) :D
Hey Tristen, thanks for checking in.
I'm going to try very hard to limit to 40 plants this year!
We all know how that goes.

good luck in 2013 and nice list!
Thanks, Tyler, same to you!

Very nice, Paul. Great list with excellent varieties.
Thanks, Brent. I'm enjoying watching your greenhouse cook!

Another good one started. I will try to check back before it gets to page 1555222017. lol
Hey, Brian, real funny! I am going to try and rein it in a little this season.
I mean, 88 pages last season? I haven't even read all of it!
Goon Good luck this season.

Dang Paul! Goin all out from the get go this year! Flavor and heat a plenty on that list! Can't wait to see what happens next at the clonemeister's palace!
Good to see your smiling face here, Shane! Well, at least part of it!
I love your grow closet and light set up; really compact and efficient.

Great looking grow list! Is there a reason why you are germinating at two different temperatures?
Hi, Stefan. The temperature in the grow shelf is about 72 (23C) during
the day, a tad cooler at night. The germination trays with covers hold
the heat, so in the little domes, the temp is about 84 (29C). If and when
the seeds sprout, I'll remove the tray covers and then the temps will be
whatever the ambient in the grow shelf is. I should have posted a pic of
the whole shelf unit. Will do that later today.

I'll post more replies when I can post again.

Good to see you getting started PaulG. Best of luck to you man!
Thanks, Patrick, appreciate the visit.

Great looking start paul! Cant wait to start seeing picks of the shoots and watch them to harvest. Good luck this season!
Hey, Britton, thanks for the look! How's that construction
project going? Got your balcony back yet?

Very nice se lection indeed my PWC chili machine!!!!!
Hello, Jamie, my friend! Not sure about the machine part, but right
now it's pretty chilly here. I need to look at the FloGro pages to
stay warm! I was a bit surprised the hot peppers would even grow
and produce here, but it all turned out okay, I guess. Hope you are
getting some cooperation from the weather down your way.

PaulyG!!!!!!! I'm here man. Didn't even see you started another GLOG. Excited to follow my friend. THe lineup looks awesome! Good luck in 2013 and happy growing!
Hey, Jamison! Thanks for the enthusiastic good wishes!
Your OWs really look good. Mine are slow to grow since they are
in the cool greenhouse. Would love to have 'em in the garage!
Take care, bro.


Hi Paul
Another ambitious grow list I see. Are you going to be trying any new techniques this year? It was pretty cool checking out your experiments with cloning last year. Good luck with your season!
Rick! What it is, brothah? I may try a few clones of my bushy Yellow Aji, but
I probably won't get so carried away this season! My focus will be selecting
the Scotch Bonnets and Habaneros that are really productive to form the core
of future grows. Hopefully having less plants and very little hand watering of
the chilis will allow me some time to try some isolating. I think I will start getting
away from OP seeds over time and once I can get my own strains going here
that are predictable. Are your seeds in, yet?

Hi Paul , I didnt really comment much on your glog last season but i was there reading through every bit of it , and ill be following your 2013 grow just the same , Best of luck mate .
Hey, SS! Good to see you here! I have enjoyed your grow so far, as well.
Sorry I didn't get dialed into your glogs earlier. I like your construction
projects; I learned from just looking at your pics!

Yup!!! Following this one for sure :dance:
Hi, Pia, good to hear from you! How's the Sandy recovery going?

Hi Paul
No... I'm at G-day minus 2... seeds go in to soak on Saturday. I'm just trying to get all the prep work done before that. Cleaning/sterilizing the seed flats, setting up the shelves/lighting, digging out the heat mat and mixing up the seed starter medium. I'm going to try a few new things this year too... LED lighting, growing some of my superhots in pots and soaking in a saltpeter solution before germinating.

I'll be interested in seeing how your SB/Hab experience goes for sure since I'm not going to be able to achieve that kind of scope this year. I'll be growing Hot Paper Lantern Habaneros because I liked the taste of the ones I got at the agricultural fair last September, and they tell me that they're very productive and have a shorter growing season than other Habs.
