Nah, keep 'em coming. I have very little
happening in my own grow at the moment,
so seeing what I can look forward to is good.

Wild production activity has been on the rise, recently. Hopefully the mid 90F's we're experiencing after so much cooler weather won't upset their rhythm. I have many of these guys positioned for morning sun and afternoon shade and a couple spoiled ones are even getting chauffeured to the cooler inside temperatures around noon each day.

Baccatum Fragilis showing decent pollen production - and getting spoiled.

The outdoor OW Lanceolatum has been a conveyor belt of pod production; not a bunch at a time, but consistently a handful at each of the various stages of production.

Chacoense CAP 212 is starting on an outdoor round after an isolated first round ripened indoors.

And the Eximium CGN 19198 seems to be getting down to business

I would describe Bird’s Eye Baby as a heavily branched, dwarf C. annuum var. glabriusculum with unusually small leaves and pequin shaped fruit. I suspect the heavy branching and tiny leaves have been selected from a wild glabriusculum starting point.

I wanted to post a correction to this, to avoid spreading misinformation. The ripe fruit are decidedly not deciduous, which is not allowed for in the glabriusculum type description. The lanceolate leaves are also out of type.

It’s a rather gorgeous dwarf pequin, albeit C. annuum var. annuum.
The foliage on your Tovarii looks super healthy - not to slight the others ;) How tall is that guy getting?
Thanks, I hide all the bad plants just left of frame every time :rofl:

It's not that tall, under 3ft at a guess. IIRC it's in a 5L pot. It has a very bent stem up top as another non-pepper plant had fallen into it at some point and before I noticed it'd diverted itself horizontally before growing upwards again. Who needs bonchi wire.
