@jifjifjif yeah saved those Gerber yogurt cups when my daughter was eating them saved about 50+ cups they work great washed then poked holes for drainage and write on them what pepper seed was planted. Looking forward to your upcoming pics.

@Tim yeah it's great to see all these pics I am hoping to see more non traditional peppers and the pods. Those Ghost are mean looking! Tasty in a sauce!

So I mentioned my overwintered Naga plant in the last picture thread... and here she is sitting out on my patio... Not a great photo, too many other plants in the background.
Temps will drop below 40 tonight, so I will bring her inside and see if I can take a better photo.
I had cut her down to the first fork and was worried that I had killed her... but she has not only put on new growth, but a few flowers as well (I doubt any of them will turn into peppers just yet).

Caribbean Reds... My baby nephew got a hold of my drying habanero seeds and dumped a ... "few" in my cups...

I can't bring myself to pull them up though, so I will probably let them get a little bigger too hah.

I'm growing these peppers now. The ones in the larger pots will go in my garden, while most of the rest will be sold or donated.
I believe my homemade potting mixes have made a great difference. I made my own seed starting mix (using Cornell's soilless mix) and transplanted them to a 4-1-1(pine fines, perlite, and peat) potting mix.

Habanero seeds I planted 02/04/2013

Out of fresh (if you want to call them that) habaneros from a local grocery store. Had to go buy a better light faster than I wanted to because of how quickly these little guys came up and grew.

here are mine, not all of them though, some bigger ones i had to move to the window shelf because there was no more room under the light... there is also a caesalpinia pulcherrima seedling in there, and a sungold tomato. there should be a tiny just sprouted eucalyptus too. time to dig in the garage and hope there is another light fixture somewhere in there haha. and another one and another one. it never ends.

interesting detail, i don't water them from above any more (it's easier to just pour into the plastic plates they're in than aim for the tiny cups without floating the seedlings) i pushed wicks through the bottom of the cups, and interestingly enough they soak up water really quick. i was under the impression that such a gritty mix would have trouble wicking, but what do you know, nice surprise.

i haven't transplanted peppers in this mix yet, but i've done some other stuff like hibiscus, brugmansias, orchids, succulents and a ton of adeniums. i just hold the plant gently by the stem and tap the pot lightly onto a plate or something to get the mix to come out. then i just shake the plant a little bit and that's it, the mix just falls off and you have nice almost-bare roots. if i don't want to bare root then i don't shake the plant in the end, rather just scoop the whole rootball and put in new pot. for peppers i think i am going to cut these cups open with scissors, because i expect roots will grow into the wick that goes through the bottom and trying to pull it out will damage those roots.
about what i'm growing, there is an incomplete grow list on the other thread with growlists, but most of it is there, so i don't repeat it here.

This year I decided to try a 300w CFL for my grow light. currenlty I have 7 seedlings under it.so far. I do have to rotate them daily or they lean towards the light.
I planted them all at once... oddly enough the Aji Lemon was first to pop, but has since been passed in size by a few. The jamaican hot chocolate has finally shown up (several weeks later than everyone else). I had a cell with some Douglah 7 pot seeds that never produced :(

I had some dried peppers that I had saved but not really put to use yet. My Wife got me a coffee grinder for my birthday for the sole purpose to use with peppers. Here are the results.

Bag 1 has Bhut, 7pot, Trinidad Scorpion, and Douglah.

Bag 2 and 3 has Chocolate Habanero, yellow Fatalii, Cayanne, Peppadew, and Jalapeno.

Here's a quick snap of my garden. 3 Cayene (Top 3 )
2 Hungarian yellow wax (Middle right, lower middle left)
I have peas in the solo cup, Purple Amethyst Beans in the bottom right and 2 varieties of carrots.

Plus I have a few tomatoe plants in my little germination dome, some more peas, cherry tomatoes, Trinidad Scorpion and Yellow Fatalii (sp?)

I can already see the spots where the pods will form on the largest Cayenne. I think it needs to be transplanted already it's in a 3 Gal pot. I might move it into one of the buckets that Im using as a stand.

That aji lemon pod is from a plant I have had for several years. First time I have ever seen spikes on a pod. I was told by a wise chilihead it could be from Stink bugs attacking the pod at an early age. It was not hotter than any other pod I have had from it. Plus winter pods are much milder as we already know:)

Holy crap, @teyo, that's quite impressive. What kind of lighting are you using for them?

@Bill_Missy, your plants are looking wonderful, too. Nice deep green leaves on 'em.

Here's the last shot of mine. Right after I watered most of them for the first time in 7 days. I let them dry out until the leaves get a tad droopy, they seem to respond well to it.

cjohansen, they were under a very cheap fluo fixture until they developed about 3 pairs of true leaves, now they are on a shelf by the window. i have many other stuff sprouting so they were "pushed out" from under the light. they don't seem to mind much though. i hope next week (after this cold snap) i will be able to put up a teeny tiny greenhouse outside, then i'll transplant them and they will have decent light.

teyo, you're lucky. We haven't had sun at all the past 4 or 5 days. I've had some of my seedlings on the windowsill when there's been sun, and they clearly appreciate it.

I sowed some tomatoes yesterday, hopefully we'll have some sun for when they sprout, so I can put them under light while some of the chillies are on the windowsill. Who knew growing stuff involved this much work, eh? :)

My seedlings are still quite small compared to some of your recent pictures. When did you guys start them? My 7 pots are really small still. Is that normal? I know my lighting source is crap but it has to make do. Trying my best to supplement with real sunlight.

I'm glad they are small as we've just received a good 2-3 feet of snow in the last two weeks. It's going to take a bit to melt as we had a decent amount already. I've procrastinated started my tomatoes and now unsure if I should wait another week. I'm thinking tomorrow is best though.

Hillseeker those are a nice size, and they are slower growing by nature for being super hots. I like mine to be compact so I keep the light close, those they may have taller plants you will see more space between the leaves as they reach for light. Those that keep the light close the plants are more compact and for indoor limited space it's a good thing. Once they finally get outdoors they will explode with growth.

I started these Jan 12th the same as the ones pictured at the top of this thread. They are Bhut, Stinging Bhut, White Habanero.

Thanks for the vote of confidence Mark. My lights are not adjustable right now either so I know they are reaching for light, especially since it's crappy to begin with. Not much thought went into starting this many seedlings while overwintering large plants as well. Next year I have a new plan though! Your plants look really healthy. I bought a white hab from a greenhouse a few years back and it turned out to be some strange cross that was not very tasty. Hotter than heck though. Curious to see what you think.

My plants are under T12 1 Grolux plant bulb and 1 cool white both 40 W bulbs. One thing I noticed even though I have heard the grow lights are just so the price is jacked up a bit and no different that a regular bulb my seedlings beg to differ, if I put them under the side of the normal bulb instead of the middle or over the grow bulb they reach for the GroLux bulb. I take that not as a matter of opinion but matter of fact from the plants. Anyone else have an opinion or is my other bulb just plain wrong?

I got my white Hab seeds from another forum member and I will update on what I think of them.

Jamie nice pepper trees, guess a lizard is a good friend to have around. I can't wait until I am finally at the pod stage stage. Nice looking collection bet you are waiting for those summer pods.

Here is an update of my plants, top three from left to right Ghost, Stinging Ghost, White Hab. Bottom two White Hab, Ghost. Not pictured my tiny Black Pearl.

One of my white habs had flower buds forming.

Here is a picture of my over wintered Tabasco I grew from seed last year. I have done absolutely nothing to this plant since the end of last year. It has stayed outside all fall/winter with a watering about twice a month. It is in VERY dense soil as I did not know what I was doing last year (This year either, but reading more :) ). It seen some good freezes and hard frost and it is alive⦠Maybe I will throw it some ferts today.

And if ya'll haven't watched Jaime's update videos, you should. He has tons of mature pepper plants, some leafing out, some recovering, some fruiting already.

Ab2008 wow nice job for starting in feb, looking good and in good shape for the outdoors soon.

Thanks Josh. Those are nice looking over winters, it's a good feeling to get a jump on the season. I tried once they made it through the winter just to die in the spring. Though I did not trim the roots or repot or harden off. I may give it a go after this season.

Waited a bit long before repotting these two today.

Mark,

I have looked at some of my plants and they are like yours, root bound. Do you do anything to them before transplanting? i.e. cut the ball a little, pull the roots ways, Squeeze the root ball, etc?

Hi Bill, after repotting last season into a clear plastic cup and being able to look at the roots as they grow, I see no need to put them in shock any more than necessary to repot. I know some say to cut or pull the bottom to assist the roots. I don't and see no ill effect.

Here is the other one from a distance so you can see the plant to pot/root ball size as you can see I waited a bit longer than I should have. The leaves are slightly yellower than the ones repotted weeks ago. But they will bounce back in a few days.

That hornworm eating the pepper is hilarious... but that would have been one dead caterpillar if I had caught it in the act.
Have you used bacillus thuringiensis to kill off caterpillars before? That should take care of the problem...

Jifjifjif looking good, is the one in the big pot an over winter or a super fast grower? I see the grill is ready for some pods to be roasted. The weather looks so warm in FL I need some of that up in MD. It's warming up but not enough for me to place outside.

Got the spot where I'm going to plant my peppers tilled and worked up, it's 12'x32' ish, used to be the area where we put bails of hay for cattle, so lots of manure and hay that's decomposed over a few years.. Should do extremely well here.. the dirt is extremely dark and not much has really ever been planted here... Don't mind how hazy it is, some of the woods are on fire back in the forest where I live. Been like this a couple of days now. But on the bright side, today was the peppers first full day outside. Next week they'll finally be planted in the garden.

some of you may remember my experiment with 4 scotch bonnets in a teeny tiny cottage cheese cup (200g cheese).
well, i took pity on them yesterday and repotted them to a more decent size pot. the biggest one started to put out buds.
this is what they looked like before repotting

and this is after

i fully expect them to keep their growth rate and reach at least 10 meters tall in this pot :))

My peppers were smaller and lighter green than most of the pictures I've seen here. For anyone who wants to comment, what kind of fertilizer have you been using during the indoor stage?

habjolokia

Hi Kalie, it all depends on what you use for soil. For me just MG Orchid mix and MG Organic choice which contains 3mo of fertilizer. Others who use say a 5-1-1 mix or another brand of soil without fertilizer would then need to add ferts. After the initial 3 months I go with Alaska fish fert NPK 5-1-1 also will use MG liquid feed NPK 12-4-8. Others on the forum have favored dyna-grow foliage pro NPK 9-3-6

Here is a pic of my current plants no additional ferts as of yet just what's in the soil with added bone meal for future use.

@teyo I don't know what you're doing, but it sure seems to be working :) Are you still growing three in that pot? I'm trying a 3-in-1 trick with some tomatoes. Growing three plants in one container. As they grow, I fill in dirt, pushing the stems to the edge. The idea is to end up with one hell of a root ball and three really sturdy branches, resulting in one heavy producer of a tomato bush :)

Pepperguy222.....I think the over rating refers to the level of heat. They were touted as the world's hottest for a very brief period. It seems they were very inconsistent. This was explained in another thread.( I think by Mark) I've never grown them, so I can't comment on taste. Why don't you give us a review when you harvest some pods? There are plenty of people here who love growing peppers for the flavor. It's not always about melting your gums. Good Luck.

Hey guys, I'm new to the site. This is by far my favorite part of the site, I might ramble on a bit about my Black Pearl Peppers, But I started growing them a couple years ago and I am just very proud of them and the way they look. I had my first plant that I kept inside during the winter and it died last year at 3 years old, wish I had pics to post of it. I do however have pics of my new plants this one was taken last week.

Couple Pics After watering when I got home from work.

This is a mystery plant that was supposed to be a Bhut last year but clearly was not. Possibly a Twilight, Bolivian rainbow or some type of Cross who knows :) Overwintered cut to stem in a 6 inch pot. Keeping it as an ornamental plant not looking for productivity but has tons of pods and is my healthiest plant.

Close up Same plant

TS Butch T, Bishops Crown, Bhut Jolokia, Red Savina. All had lots of leaf damage and loss from wind and cold a couple weeks ago. In 16 inch pots. Red Savina is flowering like crazy but wont set pods :(. All 4 have flower drop so far.

I also have 9 plants in a in ground Garden at my In Laws house that gets much better sun. Last time I was there the scotch bonnet had one set baby pod and that was it so far for the 9 plants. All experienced same cold and wind problems :( But are coming back nicely.

Here is my first little Bhut pepper. I am at least fairly certain that is what I had, I bought the peppers fresh at a farmer's market. They were bumpy, and pointed like the ones I have seen here, but from what I recall they ranged in color from red to brown. I am not sure which I grew the seeds from, so it will be interesting to see what comes out. I grew this little one inside, because I started it at an odd time of year. I will probably move it to a bigger pot, so I can move it outside come summer. Thanks for sharing all your photos and tips.

I have been test germinating for a while, one or two at a time. My hab is about the size of your bhut.

I like pictures two. I think you/we need to start the 3rd part. It takes too long to get to the bottom. PLUS some of the pictures have become irrelevant.

I look forward to posting my picture in the 3rd thread.
