Trippaul Threat (PdN x BMJ) Community Grow

This is a dedicated grow log for Tristen's awesome cross, which I
have been growing out since 2014.  I'll start with a bit of history and
some photos documenting what's happened so far.
In January of 2014, Tristen (Trippa) sent me a little care package of seeds.
In the package were two generations of a cross he had made, which he just 
called 'Mystery Cross, F1' and 'Mystery Cross, F2'.  
Here's Trippa's Mystery Cross seedlings in February of 2014:


Both generations showing the purple foliage characteristic since the beginning.
Up close look at Trippa's Mystery Crosses, F1 and F2.  Both culled to a single
plant after the photo taken, so I only had one plant of each generation:

Cleaned off the outdoor Trippaul Threat v2 F3 yellows.
Still have one plant in the greenhouse, about ready to pick.

From the plant in the 18-gallon container. Saved a few of
these for seeds.

These are from the 3-gallon pot. The white ones at the
left are the last of the Trippaul Threat F9 white. Am drying
a few of these yellows for seeds, as well.

The F9 Trippaul Threat white in the eight-inch bulb pan is
ready to pick. Some nice upright pods on this little plant.
Will try to keep it going OW after cutting back to some
newer branches.

A great plant to carry on it's growing cycle Paul the F9 Trippaul Threat is a beauty.🙂

This particular specimen had upright pods and flowers,
very unusual for the Trippaul Threat White Lightening. The
small size of this plant might make for a decent bonchi. I
think this clay pot is a bit large to be considered a 'tray planting',
but closer to bonsai than a regular pot.

Looking for forum members who want to grow our the
Trippaul Threat v2 F4 yellow variant in 2022. Some of
you have seeds, I know @dragonsfire grew them, but
can't recall off the top of my head who else grew them.
Anyway, I have a bunch of seeds and have put a few on
the seed trains. Would be way cool to see how folk did
with the next gen in 2022!

I think my own grow next year will be with the Orange variant.
I had few orange seeds, but I may have enough for another
person or two to grow them with me next season.

Thanks to these members for growing some of the Trippaul
Threat v2 F3 variants. I have high hopes for all of them.

@BDASPNY - peach and orange variants
@dragonsfire - yellow variant
@CaneDog - red variant
@Devv - red and golden variants
@rickvm - orange variant
@Plantguy76 - peach variant

So far the yellow looks pretty good, getting stabilized- all
my plants had proper phenotypes this season.

I should give it another try... I love dark red foliage. Not so much a fan of the pale yellow pods though. The only problem is that I have no room left. I still have one empty spot left but that is supposed to be filled with the cream white scotch bonnet that I hope will arrive in the mail soon...


Extreme Member
I have TT seeds of other colors, also, @MarcV.
Red, orange, golden, peach and white, along
with the yellow. Just say the word. The yellows
are quite bright in hue.

*sigh* you're giving me a hard time 🤔... I love dark foliage plants... but if I go with it I'll have to let go sometinh else... I had the limit of seedlings set to 10 and I already am at 12 right now, and then I'm not even counting the tasmanian black... 😬

In the beginning those plants are nice and cute 🐣 but they do grow up and before you know it they fill up the whole back yard...

Opening up my 2022 Trippaul Threat season
with some earlier strains. Left, v2 F3 Orange
variant, right an F7 ’Violet’ variant. Both show-
ing great anthocyanin coloration.

The v2 F3 Orange variant will go into a #15 nursery
container, and the F7 Violet in a 2-gallon container,
barring any disasters!

The F9 White Lightning in a 2.5-liter clay bulb pan.

Looks like this round of flowering has come to an end.
Three isolated pods set so far. I hope there are seeds
in these poss.
