RE: Been Busy.. Lets play Catch up with some picts...

I'm jealous.


 o
RE: Been Busy.. Lets play Catch up with some picts...

Wow great pics! Plants looking awesome and good pod output. It nice to see so many peppers in one group that the name matches the pod formation, I don't see one questionable pod to plant name, great job on obtaining true seeds.

 o
RE: Been Busy.. Lets play Catch up with some picts...

Thanks Mark!
Almost all seeds were obtained on Garden Web so it's no wonder that they all came true.
Peppers were started out in grow bags under T5's in January and February. Then they were transplanted into Walmart grocery bags with a mix of peat moss and pine bark nuggets.

These plants and the production look as though they are straight out of an official picture book on peppers. Bravo!


 o
RE: Been Busy.. Lets play Catch up with some picts...

Awesome plants...I thought mine were nice until I saw yours. Well done!


 o
RE: Been Busy.. Lets play Catch up with some picts...

ok the ghost fruit and rainforest fruit have really got my attention
great diversity


 o
RE: Been Busy.. Lets play Catch up with some picts...

Beautiful grow Eric. Definitely got a lot of uncommon varieties.

Nice to see something out of the ordinary.

RE: Been Busy.. Lets play Catch up with some picts...

I was gonna say that your moruga scorpion pods look exactly like the pods on what I thought were my brain strains. but others are saying everything you have looks correct. now I'm confused.


 o
RE: Been Busy.. Lets play Catch up with some picts...

What a fantastic mixture of varieties and such beautiful plants, too!


 o
RE: Been Busy.. Lets play Catch up with some picts...

Thanks everyone for all the compliments, I wasn't sure if they were all up to par but I guess so.
I will be sharing all the seeds sometime after there all ripe.
I have more picts to post, I think I have 61 hots plus a bunch of mild and sweets.. so get ready..
Judo_and_peppers- I have 2 Moruga Scorpion plants one is quite different than the other I will post pictures of them after I get out of work if It's not raining outside.

RE: Been Busy.. Lets play Catch up with some picts...

Here is the 2 Moruga Scorpions side by side the first one I am 99% sure it's the real deal the 2nd one did I mix up plant labels? or or get wrong seed? or is it a different strain of Moruga? By the way they came from different sources.

Moruga Scorpion Fruit photo morugascorpion_zps17f150f4.jpg
99% sure this is Moruga Scorpion


Moruga Scorpion ??? photo morugascorpionquestion_zps4f2ad097.jpg
Very questionable, not quite sure what it is Moruga Scorpion???
(sorry the picture is a bit blurry)


 o
RE: Been Busy.. Lets play Catch up with some picts...

your first one looks precisely like what I've been calling a brain strain. the second one I'm not sure what it is. it looks sorta hab-ish to me, but lots of peppers do.


 o
RE: Been Busy.. Lets play Catch up with some picts...

In the second picture the seed was obtained from a questionable source so to be sure I was getting a true Moruga I went to Cross Country Nurseries (they have 500 different varieties of peppers) and bought Moruga in the first picture when it was just a baby.
Now I'm not quite sure, your right it does look like a Brain Strain. I have read there is a lot of debate about Brain Strain and Moruga which is Witch? - pun intended looks like something a witch would put in her cauldron to steal your thoughts. (sorry I have a dry sense of humor :)


 o
RE: Been Busy.. Lets play Catch up with some picts...

pic 2 is not a brain strain. don't know what is. 1 is a morouga. yes the brainstrains and morougas do look similar but the bs seem to grow bigger pods in general


 o
RE: Been Busy.. Lets play Catch up with some picts...

Congratulations on such a successful season. You have some of the best looking plants I've seen. It's times like these I feel my name is more than appropriate. I am humbled by your pepper greatness.

Tim


 o
RE: Been Busy.. Lets play Catch up with some picts...

Know that I'm looking at the pic, #2 looks like your run of the mill orange hab.

Thanks Tim. This is my first year growing this many hot peppers, prior years I would grow maybe 10 different variety's.
Oh by the way your first big harvest looks amazing!!!

AB-SO-Lutely FANTASTIC!! Your plants look great!! I'm going to look into those Walmart blue bags when I put the peppers in the greenhouse for winter.

Cheers,

Absolutely beautiful Eric. Are those regular Walmart grocery bags or are they planting bags? Thanks

Kasie


 o
RE: Been Busy.. Lets play Catch up with some picts...

Kasie, they are just regular Walmart grocery bags. 50 cents a piece! Fabric grow bags are way out of my price range for the amount of peppers I have. These Walmart bags are just the same if not better! Better for the environment too since they are made from 100% recycled plastic bottles.
I swear by them and just as a test I made a raised garden bed with the exact same soil medium and feed them all the same, guess what? the ones in the grow bags outperformed the raised garden bed by far. I think it's b/c the Walmart bags are well draining and heat up more, that's something pepper plants seem to love.
-Eric-


 o
RE: Been Busy.. Lets play Catch up with some picts...

Thank you for the info Eric. Looking forward to seeing your harvesting pictures.

Kasie


 o
RE: Been Busy.. Lets play Catch up with some picts...

LeafEricson- I'm impressed! My raised bed plants were tiny compared to yours. I've been trying to figure out a way to grow more plants and wouldn't have thought of this if it weren't for the pictures. Have you tried this with other plants? Eggplant? Tomatoes? I see a trip to Walmart in my future!


 o
RE: Been Busy.. Lets play Catch up with some picts...

Thanks dmkelly.

Even though those Walmart bags are only 50¢ a piece, it still is expensive when you add it all up with the peat, pine bark, bat guano and all the remaining ferts.
I really thought raised garden beds would do well and they do seem better than just in the ground but the Walmart bags out performed my raised beds by far and I used the same soil mix for both.
Sorry I haven't grown anything else in the bags but peppers. Everything else I much easier to grow. Peppers are very particular.
These bags require much more water and more fertilizing. They are very well drained and will leach out nutrients quickly. Whenever it rained for a long time I would go out there in the rain and fertilize them with a strong solution. Iron fert like you would use for lawns helps and to combat calcium deficiency I use calcium acetate, quick lime mixed with vinegar and allowed to settle.


 o
RE: Been Busy.. Lets play Catch up with some picts...

Amazing looking plants and some high resolution pictures! How hot are the Orange teapots? I love there color! Worries me people keep saying that they get random seeds online cuz I did not use a reliable source. I'm gunna be using this post to match my pepers up to see what I got.lol


 o
RE: Been Busy.. Lets play Catch up with some picts...

Very nice plants Leaf, That Moruga sure looks like a 7-pot 2 me. I remember the days when scorpions had stingers.


 o
RE: Been Busy.. Lets play Catch up with some picts...

Hi Eric,

I didn't catch this post last year. Based on your picture of your Black Cuban, I think you may have gotten crossed seed either from me or through someone I sent them to.

Foliage on Cubans should be purple/blackish like the the Black Pearl or Black Prince.

Did your plant look like this?

If so, I'm sorry you didn't get what you were expecting.
When I discovered my saved seeds were contaminated with crossed seed, I put out a warning post, see below.
