2017 Grow Update #6 – 3/19/17

Grow update #6

Herb garden and peppers

Basement Plants

The Jamaican Hot Chocolate, Thai Dragon and Yellow Chiltepin look great.  The Helios Hab in the low-pressure aeroponics system has grown a lot in the last two weeks. I’m planning to move it from the grow tent, and place under the 400 watt CMH light. Not sure what I’ll put in the grow tent, maybe another round of lettuce.

Upstairs Plants


The AeroGarden Sprout still has the seed starting deck, I planted some non-pepper seeds last week, and some have come up. Two cukes, Lemon and Teshcha F1, Sungold tomato, Sour Gerkin, and Tiny Tim tomato have sprouted. Waiting on golden yellow squash and Gretel Eggplant.

The AeroGarden Bounty only has the Aji Painapple, which is starting to produce fruit.

The AeroGarden Classic 7 has more Painapple clones, and had a Black Bhut, which has transplanted to a wick cup. It also has a few small pepper sprouts.

Cup transplants

About half of the plants transferred to cups are using the double-cup method, and the rest are in cup wick systems. The wick method cups seem to be performing a little better, and don’t have to be filled as often.


I started six Tiny Tim Tomatoes in a Kratky coffee container. Also made a Kratky herb garden, which has Cinnamon Basil, Italian Basil, Catnip, Sage, White Sage, Rosemary, Mugwort and Lemon Balm.
