Yep, the flowers on the rocopica show it's definitely crossed versus a true Card.  I thought the parent had been isolated enough in the front yard versus all the rocotos in the back yard, but apparently not.  I OW'd two USDA Cards (that one and one from a different source) plus two CGN Card's, all of which are confirmed true Card's, so I'll be sure to isolate them properly when they produce again.
 
I'm also OW'ing a handful of Flexuosum, which I haven't heard discussed yet in this thread, some with purple in the flowers and one with the "standard" flower coloration.  I'm a big fan of the look of the stems on the Flex's (the particular way they look when they lignify) and also the leaves.

At the risk of cross-posting, I should have put this image here. 
Devv went and picked these wild the Fall of 2020. Can’t wait
to grow them out. Definitely a candidate for isolating of some
kind:

I haven’t grown either flexuosum or tovari, either,
for that matter. There are a few more I’d like to
try in the future.
 
Hope you will post a pic or two here during the
season of your flex.

Can't wait to see your list, WW! 
Getting the season underway is a
great feeling, alright! It's cool that
you picked a meaningful date for
your start to add to the fun.
 
I'm planning on a 1/31/21soak overnight,
then into the Black Gold on 2/1/21. Maybe
I should take a look at your list, and grow
some that you aren't so we can trade seeds
(hopefully ISO) next Fall!
 
The pack of goodnesses you sent has really
made my selection more difficult, in a good
way of course  :rolleyes:

The OW plants looking sort of peaked in
their pale low-light foliage, so I top-dressed
the containers with worm castings, blood
meal, bone meal, alfalfa meal and some mykos.
I hope to see some greener leaves soon now
that they are under the T5HO lamps. Pics for
later comparison.

A few highlights from the seeds dropping tomorrow...

Another nice one from Cane Dog.
You are the man, Dog!

Dried pod with some dried placenta
had a nice flavor with a mildburn.
 
From our very own Devv! Wild collected by
the man himself near Seguin, Tejas, hence
the name. Mil grácias, amigo mio:

Hey Paul.  Great to see you getting things underway.  Really excited for your grow.
 
I must have been really low on seeds when I sent you those Lanceolatum!   At least I've had good germ rates on them.  They can come up tiny, though, so be prepared to squint for 'em ;)
 
Here's a pic of one next to a 357a battery (5.4mm tall) for scale.

This is my second try with these, CD.
I feel I might as well plant these, they
aren’t getting any younger!

Just happens to be one of the few peppers I am growing this year to rebuild my stock. Very cool plant.
 
 
That is a real beauty, John!
 
You are setting the bar pretty high, my friend 
 
How old is that specimen?
 
60 days from sowing.They are very slow starters.These plants will do very well in your area and mature plants will tolerate upper 30s.Perfect fall plant for your greenhouse.
