SineNomine 2022

It is time to start the new growth for 2022.
Link to my grow log 2021.

Last fall I kept a Tepin x Lemon Drop plant that I tried to grow as a bonchi. He's not the best candidate for that, but he looks pretty good. It even has a flower that seems to turn into a pod.

Vivian! Looking good in Romania, my friend!

The Goliath Jalapeńo and Tasmanian Black
are doing well for you - I like the flowers on
the Tasi Black! The pods on the Goliath look
true to form, sort of long and slender, tapered
cylinders. Has any variegation manifested it-
self on the Goliath Pepper?
Thank you, Paul!
I really like Tasmanian Black and Goliath Jalapeno. Thanks again for the seeds!
No variegation is seen on Goliath peppers yet.

The flowers on my tasmanian black are not completely purple, unlike the flowers on your plant...

I think I've seen flowers like yours on my plants. I'll check tomorrow and I'll tell you.
 
@MarcV , this is a flower from a plant kept in the shade.

I measured this Vezena Piperka pepper today. It seems to me that it is growing very fast. I will measure and see the difference tomorrow.

Prik Khi Nu forked to a height of almost 60 cm. Instead, it has side shoots right at the base.

I always thought that Prik khee noo peppers were Frutescens... i would expect a more compact and bushy growth with tiny leaves. You know for sure it's Prik khee noo?
On the other hand, your peppers grow about four times faster than mine. Might have to take a look at my nitrogen feed for next season! :think:

I've been catching up with your glog and it looks like you're off to a great start this season. Your balcony should be a jungle again in no time.

BTW, I'm growing SLP's Prik Khi Nu for the first time this season and I've been surprised by how quickly it's been getting big. I'm hoping for great productivity from this one.

It's the first time I grow them. I have the seeds from Semillas and they are classified as C. Frutescens.
I use Canna Aqua Vega and Canna Rhizotonic at first. Now I'm starting to add Canna PK 13/14.

Glad to see you CD. :)
I like to hear that you grow Prik Khi No, we can compare growth and productivity. :)

I'm using mainly solid organic fertilizers, i think the nitrogen isn't readily available at first and needs to be released first before my plants can profit from it. I had some rawit last year that started out slow like most of my peppers this year, but they became about two meters high by the end of summer only on the fertilizer i applied in the soil mix.

Looks like @CaneDog has the same experience with the pkn from semillas. Prik khee noo on steroids! 💪

@SineNomine - Those flowers on the Tasi Black are
probably associated with the tiny lateral branches
growing out at the nodes. In general it looks to be
growing out much as mine did last season. A really
nice looking plant. Should be a heavy producer for
you!

I have three plants that seem to want to turn each flower into pod. They are beautiful plants!
Peppers start green and change quickly to deep black. Is red the final color?

Vezena Piperka pepper grew another 1.5 cm (0.59 ") in two days and thickened.

OW Tepin x Lemon Drop that grew well indoors in a two liter jar for a year (~ 0.5 gal) enjoys the new 8 l bucket (~ 2 gal).

That’s right, Vivian, they ripen to a nice, smoky
dark red color.
 
The three Tasmanian Black plants from @PaulG produce very well and produce flowers continuously.

The two plants Vezena Piperka are recovering after I took down the pods with blossom end rot.

I have three Ancho Mulato plants from Semillas. They are beautiful and productive. The pepper in the picture has a blossom end rot. Initially I thought it was starting to turn brown, but it is very soft in the colored area.

A Chilhuacle Negro remained a dwarf, but it bears flowers. The other plant recovers well after I accidentally broke most of its roots when planting.

OW Tepin x Lemon Drop has adapted well outside and produces continuously. I have already eaten a few peppers and it continues to ripen.

Prik Khi Nu plants grow very tall and only now have they started to bloom.

This Lemon Drop plant grows very compact and is very productive unlike last year's which grew tall and messy.
The saved Lemon Drop plant has its first flower.

Most C. Chinense are delayed due to low temperatures during the night.
Papa Dreadie G3 from @Sawyer. I have three flowering plants. The fourth plant was broken by the wind, but now it is recovering and growing beautifully.

Aji Jobito from Semillas have pods.

I noticed in these plants that the flower petals remain on the pods for a long time. It looks a little weird. Picture from May 24th.

Fatalii plants grow evenly and have many flowers. Some set some pods.
Two plants from @PaulG

The aphids almost disappeared after the series of sprays.

Mint grows well, Thai Basil and Bolloso Napoletano have sprouted.

Tasmanian Black. Did I say I like it? I say again: I like this variety! Two twin peppers right at the base of the stem.

The first color appeared on this year's plants. Lemon Drop.
