Greenjoy recently sent me their hydroponic indoor grow box for review. I’ve published two videos, one of the initial unboxing and setup, and the other after 30 days of use. The videos are below. You can find more information about the product here, but as of this writing, it is currently unavailable.

The closest competing product for Greenjoy would be the AeroGarden Bounty. I have used both, and prefer the AeroGarden systems.

I’ve been testing the Sansi 100-watt, 10,000 lumens LED floodlight for growing peppers. This light isn’t designed for use as a grow light but does work really well as one. It is designed to be a utility light. Sansi sent me the one I am testing, for free to review.

For my test, I am using it to overwinter a 3-year-old Khang Starr Lemon StarrBurst pepper plant. As you can see from the videos below, it has exceeded my expectations and is actually producing fruit.

How to properly mix ‘MasterBlend’ 4-18-38 tomato fertilizer

In the title, I put ‘MasterBlend’ in quotes, because in my video I’m using a different brand of 4-18-38 tomato fertilizer, partly because that is what I have on hand at the moment, but to also demonstrate that you don’t have to have the name brand of the product. Also, it mixes exactly the same way and yields the same results, so if you have the name brand version of the product, these steps will work fine.

Also, for a written guide, see the article I wrote called Everything you need for mixing MasterBlend.

2019 Pepper grow update #16 – 08/18/19

This is a super hot pepper grow update for August 18, 2019. Thanks for watching my videos. Overall, the plants are doing very well. I had a little bit of a setback with the large Kratky Bih Jolokia. It ran low on nutrients, and pH got too low. I’ve replaced the nutrients and hope it will recover. The large Kratky Butch T Scorpion in the 60-gallon pickle barrel is doing well. The drip plants are producing heavily with many pods turning ripe. I’ve started selling sfrbs of pods each week, you can see any I have for sale here. https://www.pepperinfo.com/product-category/fresh-pods/

White Hot Lime

Capsicum chinense

Background

The White Hot Lime is a pepper discovered and sold by White Hot Peppers.  It originally showed up from Black Bhutlah seeds in 2016 and has been grown out since.

Notes

The review pod is one I grew, but the seeds were from White Hot Peppers.

The amount ate: 1/4 pod
Heat: 8
Flavor: 6
Burn Profile: Tongue, back of the throat
Effects: none
Cap Cramps: Yes

Review

The pod ripes to a mustard/chartreuse color and can get fairly large. There is some variation, but most have a moruga scorpion shape. They are fairly thick-walled. The aroma has a hint of lime and floral. The flavor is citrus/floral. Heat is pretty intense, in the super-hot range, but not excessively hot. The piece I ate gave me cap cramps fairly soon after I ate it, but they went away quickly. The experience was similar to the Mustard Moruga Scorpion, but not quite as hot.

7-Pot Wes

Capsicum chinense

Background

History is this was originally a 7-Pot Burgandy grown by Jim Duffy. He got a red and bumpy pod off of one of those plants. He sent that to Wes Lane, who grew and reported back that it had a great flavor and heat. Jim continued growing that strain and named the variant after Wes.

Notes

The review pod is one I grew, but the seeds were from White Hot Peppers.

The amount ate: 1/4 pod
Heat: 9
Flavor: 7
Burn Profile: Throat and ears
Effects: heat glow cloud in the throat that descended down to the chest
Cap Cramps: No

Review

This is a very productive plant, some have quasi-tails/center protrusions others are just wrinkly and bumpy.  When cut open, lots of capsicum oil, the white lining on the interior walls, and a lot of placental tissue in the center.

I tried a vertical slice, excluding the seeds and placenta. The flavor was good, a little 7-Pot floral aroma, a little sweet flavor with very little bitterness. Upon swallowing I felt a heat explosion in the general throat area, that spread outward, then descended down to my chest.

I didn’t get any adverse effects, no cap cramps at all.
