Drip system plants

Chocolate UnReaper pods

Jay's Red Ghost Scorpion pods

Overview

My drip system is fully functional now. I just started increasing the nutrient strength a couple days ago. With the exception of the timer and fert injector, all of my drip parts came from Drip Depot. I’m working on a video now that will show how I built my system and suggestions for making your own.

I still need to get some Kratky totes filled and placed, and also setup my nutrient comparison between Masterblend and Dyna-gro growing habaneros.

00:00:00,000 –> 00:00:03,060
Hi this is Peter Stanley, welcome to my channel

2
00:00:03,780 –> 00:00:05,860
today I want to give an update on

3
00:00:07,060 –> 00:00:08,980
my plants, umm it’s June 10th

4
00:00:08,980 –> 00:00:11,260
and it’s been two weeks since my last update

5
00:00:12,200 –> 00:00:14,680
mostly what I’ve got in here are herbs

6
00:00:14,680 –> 00:00:15,320
I’ve got a

7
00:00:17,300 –> 00:00:18,740
pepper cutting there

8
00:00:21,380 –> 00:00:23,780
some more cuttings of rooting herbs

9
00:00:24,520 –> 00:00:26,680
this is the Orange Manzano plant

10
00:00:27,260 –> 00:00:28,380
That Susan Garza

11
00:00:28,520 –> 00:00:29,800
Susan Garza gave me

12
00:00:31,200 –> 00:00:33,360
it’s putting out some new growth

13
00:00:34,340 –> 00:00:35,940
I just need to figure out

14
00:00:35,940 –> 00:00:36,940
where to move this to so

15
00:00:37,020 –> 00:00:38,220
it can really grow

16
00:00:38,220 –> 00:00:41,300
but I was kind of giving it a little transition period

17
00:00:41,300 –> 00:00:42,060
in the AeroGarden

18
00:00:42,320 –> 00:00:43,760
this some Purple Sage

19
00:00:44,260 –> 00:00:45,460
looks really good

20
00:00:45,460 –> 00:00:48,420
I took down my Jamaican Hot Chocolate and these are some cuttings

21
00:00:48,420 –> 00:00:52,120
I’ll to get it going for next year. I was having some problems with the roots

22
00:00:53,080 –> 00:00:54,840
uh, this is really neat and

23
00:00:55,160 –> 00:00:58,280
could do this for peppers too, but these are all

24
00:00:58,280 –> 00:01:00,840
herbs from cuttings, I’ve got some Pineapple Sage

25
00:01:01,660 –> 00:01:02,620
and Lemon Balm

26
00:01:02,740 –> 00:01:05,380
Mugwort, and they’re basically little

27
00:01:06,360 –> 00:01:07,480
little wick cups

28
00:01:07,880 –> 00:01:08,600
new design

29
00:01:08,880 –> 00:01:11,440
little eight ounce cup with some slits

30
00:01:11,560 –> 00:01:12,520
cut out around

31
00:01:12,880 –> 00:01:13,680
the corners

32
00:01:14,360 –> 00:01:16,040
and this is just one of the

33
00:01:16,040 –> 00:01:18,200
those plastic salad containers

34
00:01:18,380 –> 00:01:19,900
from the grocery store

35
00:01:21,180 –> 00:01:22,620
really cheap and easy

36
00:01:25,400 –> 00:01:26,680
this my herb garden

37
00:01:27,440 –> 00:01:30,160
most of what I’ve got left in the basement

38
00:01:30,880 –> 00:01:32,240
and this is eggplant

39
00:01:35,620 –> 00:01:36,820
another eggplant

40
00:01:38,560 –> 00:01:39,520
some tomatoes

41
00:01:40,980 –> 00:01:41,700
some basil

42
00:01:43,160 –> 00:01:45,400
I’ve got my Malagueta pepper here

43
00:01:46,620 –> 00:01:49,100
that Jayden Ling sent me the seeds for

44
00:01:49,920 –> 00:01:52,240
I need to put that outside, and also

45
00:01:52,440 –> 00:01:53,880
got a Geronimo pepper

46
00:01:54,500 –> 00:01:56,180
and this is my drip system

47
00:01:58,480 –> 00:02:00,640
I think the plants have adjusted

48
00:02:00,640 –> 00:02:02,480
and they’re starting to put out new growth

49
00:02:03,540 –> 00:02:05,460
leaves are a little yellower

50
00:02:05,460 –> 00:02:08,100
than I’d like but I started out with a weaker

51
00:02:08,340 –> 00:02:09,780
much weaker solution

52
00:02:09,780 –> 00:02:11,860
so I started ramping that up, so this

53
00:02:11,860 –> 00:02:15,140
two weeks from now in the next update they should be

54
00:02:15,140 –> 00:02:17,080
more filled out, the only plant that

55
00:02:18,800 –> 00:02:20,080
really has trouble

56
00:02:20,520 –> 00:02:22,040
is this Blue Christmas

57
00:02:23,360 –> 00:02:23,860
and

58
00:02:24,500 –> 00:02:26,340
seems like when it’s warmer

59
00:02:26,340 –> 00:02:27,600
it really looks bad, but in the evening

60
00:02:27,600 –> 00:02:29,820
and the mornings the leaves perk back up

61
00:02:30,680 –> 00:02:32,680
I’ve got some ripe pods on here

62
00:02:33,100 –> 00:02:33,980
I need to pick

63
00:02:35,480 –> 00:02:37,240
I’m getting some fruits on

64
00:02:37,620 –> 00:02:38,900
quite a few of these

65
00:02:39,100 –> 00:02:41,100
Here’s my Chocolate UnReaper

66
00:02:49,800 –> 00:02:51,400
peppers back up in there

67
00:02:58,000 –> 00:02:59,600
Brazilian Red Olive has

68
00:03:00,600 –> 00:03:02,280
has some little pods on it

69
00:03:04,780 –> 00:03:05,980
This is my Stravos

70
00:03:12,420 –> 00:03:13,620
This Queen Laurie

71
00:03:13,620 –> 00:03:15,800
looks good, it’s a really fast grower

72
00:03:19,140 –> 00:03:20,260
Sugar Rush Peach

73
00:03:21,460 –> 00:03:22,980
has a lot of fruits on it

74
00:03:24,420 –> 00:03:25,940
bunch in the back there

75
00:03:26,880 –> 00:03:29,280
Cereja da Amapa has a, I just noticed

76
00:03:30,580 –> 00:03:32,180
has a flower, I mean a pod

77
00:03:33,000 –> 00:03:33,720
and also my

78
00:03:34,820 –> 00:03:35,700
7-Pot Yellow

79
00:03:37,820 –> 00:03:39,260
Chaguanas yellow has

80
00:03:39,340 –> 00:03:40,460
some peppers too

81
00:03:41,140 –> 00:03:44,340
this is my umm, I don’t know really what to call it

82
00:03:44,340 –> 00:03:47,300
the seeds were labeled as Jay’s Red Ghost Scorpion

83
00:03:47,460 –> 00:03:49,780
but the pods were not the same pheno

84
00:03:50,860 –> 00:03:53,580
but I loved the plant because it was super

85
00:03:53,580 –> 00:03:56,040
super productive and the pods were really hot

86
00:03:57,240 –> 00:03:58,040
but it’s got

87
00:03:58,300 –> 00:03:59,420
some fruits on it

88
00:04:05,420 –> 00:04:06,380
Mako Kokoo has

89
00:04:08,600 –> 00:04:09,560
a lot of fruits

90
00:04:10,280 –> 00:04:12,600
the Aji Painapple’s been dropping

91
00:04:13,500 –> 00:04:14,000
a lot of

92
00:04:14,260 –> 00:04:16,740
hoping it straightens out, it’s got a

93
00:04:17,240 –> 00:04:18,280
some fruits set

94
00:04:19,060 –> 00:04:19,940
so I hope they

95
00:04:20,440 –> 00:04:20,940
do okay

96
00:04:21,680 –> 00:04:23,120
my Datil has a pod on it

97
00:04:26,520 –> 00:04:28,280
this is a Jay’s Peach Ghost

98
00:04:30,180 –> 00:04:30,980
7-Pot Olive

99
00:04:32,440 –> 00:04:34,440
this is my Puerto Rican Yellow

100
00:04:34,920 –> 00:04:36,440
It looked really rough

101
00:04:36,840 –> 00:04:37,800
initially but

102
00:04:38,840 –> 00:04:41,160
putting out a lot of nice new growth

103
00:04:41,540 –> 00:04:43,140
has a lot of peppers on it

104
00:04:44,540 –> 00:04:47,260
they’re on the small end, I think they’ll

105
00:04:47,620 –> 00:04:50,020
get bigger, and the next wave should

106
00:04:51,120 –> 00:04:52,880
look better once the plant

107
00:04:52,880 –> 00:04:54,880
grows, but just from what it is

108
00:04:55,040 –> 00:04:56,320
it’s produced a lot

109
00:04:57,020 –> 00:04:58,300
Kpakpo Shito cross

110
00:05:00,660 –> 00:05:01,380
has one pod

111
00:05:01,820 –> 00:05:03,980
and this is my Chocolate Bhutlah

112
00:05:04,140 –> 00:05:05,980
it was looking pretty rough

113
00:05:05,980 –> 00:05:07,400
but all the new growth

114
00:05:07,400 –> 00:05:09,580
looks good, there’s something eating

115
00:05:11,600 –> 00:05:13,120
eating on my plants but

116
00:05:13,760 –> 00:05:14,800
it’s not too bad

117
00:05:14,800 –> 00:05:17,160
and my Black Bhut looked pretty rough too

118
00:05:17,320 –> 00:05:19,880
but it’s putting out a lot of new growth

119
00:05:20,900 –> 00:05:21,780
it looks good

120
00:05:22,120 –> 00:05:23,720
these are my sunflowers

121
00:05:23,720 –> 00:05:27,440
it’s actually getting, some of these are the Mammoth type

122
00:05:27,460 –> 00:05:29,460
I’ve got em all kind of mixed up

123
00:05:30,220 –> 00:05:32,380
but they’re growing a lot, I mean

124
00:05:32,380 –> 00:05:35,000
just from the last update, I think they’ve grown three feet

125
00:05:35,000 –> 00:05:36,320
there in like two weeks

126
00:05:36,320 –> 00:05:37,720
these are a little shorter

127
00:05:38,580 –> 00:05:39,780
and a lot of blooms

128
00:05:41,220 –> 00:05:44,340
and I’ve also seen a lot of pollinating insects

129
00:05:44,560 –> 00:05:45,680
on these already

130
00:05:46,080 –> 00:05:48,400
seen some honey bees which is great

131
00:05:52,480 –> 00:05:54,320
I really like how these look

132
00:05:54,320 –> 00:05:56,040
Here’s my Chinese Red Pepper

133
00:05:56,800 –> 00:05:57,440
Tien Tsin

134
00:05:59,180 –> 00:06:01,500
it’s got some, I’ve already picked

135
00:06:01,500 –> 00:06:02,980
few ripe pods, It’s got a

136
00:06:03,660 –> 00:06:05,020
a bunch of fruit on it

137
00:06:05,120 –> 00:06:06,880
as well as this Thai Dragon

138
00:06:07,500 –> 00:06:10,940
this is a Thai Dragon, all of the fruits point upward

139
00:06:12,980 –> 00:06:14,340
it looks very loaded

140
00:06:14,960 –> 00:06:15,840
with peppers

141
00:06:15,840 –> 00:06:18,040
this is my Aji Painapple, the original

142
00:06:18,320 –> 00:06:19,200
mother plant

143
00:06:19,200 –> 00:06:20,980
in a wick bucket, it’s starting

144
00:06:21,240 –> 00:06:22,200
to look better

145
00:06:22,320 –> 00:06:23,440
greening up some

146
00:06:24,380 –> 00:06:25,980
and my Chiltepin Yellow

147
00:06:25,980 –> 00:06:27,360
is doing really well now

148
00:06:28,680 –> 00:06:29,180
also

149
00:06:29,180 –> 00:06:32,760
and these are still ones that need to be moved somewhere

150
00:06:36,120 –> 00:06:37,480
here’s a basil plant

151
00:06:38,860 –> 00:06:39,500
tomatoes

152
00:06:40,440 –> 00:06:41,480
various things

153
00:06:41,700 –> 00:06:44,020
these are my two White Devils Tails

154
00:06:45,380 –> 00:06:47,300
and they look really healthy

155
00:06:47,300 –> 00:06:48,560
this is the wick bucket one and

156
00:06:48,560 –> 00:06:49,840
this is the self watering container

157
00:06:50,440 –> 00:06:53,320
and I think the self watering container one

158
00:06:53,320 –> 00:06:54,320
actually looks a little better

159
00:06:55,600 –> 00:06:56,100
fuller

160
00:06:56,740 –> 00:06:58,500
this is my Helios Hab in the

161
00:06:58,500 –> 00:07:00,140
low pressure aeroponics

162
00:07:00,380 –> 00:07:00,880
setup

163
00:07:01,900 –> 00:07:03,420
it’s got a lot of growth

164
00:07:03,420 –> 00:07:06,640
a lot of flowers, I don’t think it’s set any pods yet

165
00:07:10,620 –> 00:07:11,120
and

166
00:07:11,120 –> 00:07:13,480
these are my two CARDI Yellow Scorpions

167
00:07:15,040 –> 00:07:16,560
this is the wick bucket

168
00:07:17,040 –> 00:07:18,880
and this is the Hempy bucket

169
00:07:21,800 –> 00:07:23,720
the hempy bucket one overall

170
00:07:23,720 –> 00:07:24,660
looks healthier

171
00:07:25,240 –> 00:07:27,000
has fuller, bigger leaves

172
00:07:27,400 –> 00:07:28,440
the wick bucket

173
00:07:29,300 –> 00:07:31,220
is not as full, but it has a lot

174
00:07:32,280 –> 00:07:32,840
of fruit

175
00:07:36,440 –> 00:07:38,680
there’s more on the other side too

176
00:07:40,680 –> 00:07:42,680
I think part of the reason it’s

177
00:07:42,680 –> 00:07:44,460
I was talking to Matt Garver

178
00:07:44,900 –> 00:07:47,700
I think he shared a similar experience but

179
00:07:48,180 –> 00:07:50,020
the res level’s pretty high

180
00:07:51,300 –> 00:07:52,580
it’s just below the

181
00:07:53,160 –> 00:07:53,660
net pot

182
00:07:55,600 –> 00:07:57,040
I think if I use a lower

183
00:07:57,120 –> 00:07:59,840
reservoir and kind of let these grow down

184
00:07:59,840 –> 00:08:01,280
like a Kratky system would

185
00:08:02,080 –> 00:08:05,120
to get more aeration for the roots, I think the

186
00:08:05,120 –> 00:08:06,760
plant would do better, which

187
00:08:07,660 –> 00:08:08,620
is how I’ve got

188
00:08:09,740 –> 00:08:10,860
this wick bucket

189
00:08:11,020 –> 00:08:12,460
has a lower reservoir

190
00:08:13,360 –> 00:08:14,720
somewhere down here

191
00:08:14,900 –> 00:08:17,860
so I’ll see how, that kind of gives me another

192
00:08:17,960 –> 00:08:18,760
comparison

193
00:08:19,960 –> 00:08:21,160
and also want to do

194
00:08:21,700 –> 00:08:22,660
these are some

195
00:08:23,220 –> 00:08:24,260
nursery plants

196
00:08:24,260 –> 00:08:25,660
this is a Mayan pepper

197
00:08:27,460 –> 00:08:28,740
Peach Habanero and

198
00:08:28,740 –> 00:08:29,840
and these are all Orange Hab

199
00:08:30,960 –> 00:08:33,600
and I meant to already have done this but

200
00:08:33,600 –> 00:08:36,700
I want to put two of them in a comparison grow between Master Blend

201
00:08:37,520 –> 00:08:38,400
and Dyna-Gro

202
00:08:39,280 –> 00:08:41,040
to see how they do in a wicki

203
00:08:41,360 –> 00:08:43,040
no wicki, in a Kratky tote

204
00:08:44,440 –> 00:08:45,960
each in a 27 gallon tote

205
00:08:46,680 –> 00:08:47,880
so I need to do that

206
00:08:48,260 –> 00:08:50,180
but anyway, so that’s my grow

207
00:08:53,040 –> 00:08:54,240
on June 10th, 2017

208
00:08:54,560 –> 00:08:55,840
hope you liked that

209
00:08:55,940 –> 00:08:57,700
