Pepper grow update 6/25/17

Update

The drip system plants are responding well to increased ferts. I think the fertigation is going to cost me quite a bit this year in Dyna-Gro though. It would pay for it self within one or two years to invest in a second injector and mixing chamber and just run Masterblend.

My porch plants are doing well. The Chiltepin is pushing out little pods. The fruits on the deep-reservoir wick bucket are ripening to a deep orange. They are supposed to be CARDI Yellow Scorpion, but not sure if they are true. The flavor is excellent, very sweet and fruity, a little more than habanero level. The low pressure aeroponic Helios hab is producing a lot of fruit, and consuming a gallon every one to two days. It currently takes around 7-8 gallons to top off all the other porch plants after two or three days.

I still have a bunch in the basement that need to o out. Also planning to move the Manazon from the AeroGarden Bounty down to the basement in a DWC bucket under the 400 watt light. This will stage it for going outside.

Hi this is Peter Stanley, welcome to my channel

0:00:04.760,0:00:07.000
it’s June 24, 2017, going to give a

0:00:08.080,0:00:09.360
pepper grow update

0:00:10.640,0:00:13.120
start on the porch peppers, this is my

0:00:13.680,0:00:14.960
chinese red pepper

0:00:16.280,0:00:18.520
got lots and lots of fruits on here

0:00:19.980,0:00:21.100
some starting to

0:00:21.100,0:00:22.260
actually I’ve had some

0:00:22.260,0:00:23.920
turning ripe but some are

0:00:24.200,0:00:26.600
the bigger ones are starting to turn

0:00:29.440,0:00:30.160
and this is

0:00:30.160,0:00:34.380
the one that’s got the long ascension number, but it’s the small creme habanero

0:00:35.360,0:00:37.600
I think it’s got some flowers on it

0:00:37.980,0:00:39.500
this is the Thai Dragon

0:00:40.140,0:00:42.060
it has lots and lots of fruits

0:00:44.840,0:00:46.680
none are really ripe yet but

0:00:46.680,0:00:47.800
probably won’t be long

0:00:50.300,0:00:52.860
my Chiltepin yellow has the first ever

0:00:54.460,0:00:55.100
pods on it

0:00:56.500,0:00:57.780
there’s one of them

0:00:57.780,0:01:00.220
there’s another, yeah here’s a better one

0:01:03.400,0:01:04.280
there’s that

0:01:04.280,0:01:08.840
I’ve been growing this since last year, but never had it out where it could really grow

0:01:10.880,0:01:11.520
this is my

0:01:11.520,0:01:13.300
one of my aji painapple plants

0:01:14.040,0:01:14.540
and

0:01:14.640,0:01:16.960
in a shallow reservoir wick bucket

0:01:18.560,0:01:21.200
and it was looking pretty bad for a while

0:01:21.200,0:01:23.240
but it’s actually coming back and

0:01:23.320,0:01:25.000
it has a lot of flowers and

0:01:25.180,0:01:28.140
and blooms, and I think a few tiny pods on here

0:01:29.300,0:01:29.860
forming

0:01:30.220,0:01:33.100
this is a mess of stuff that still needs to be

0:01:34.180,0:01:34.680
moved

0:01:34.740,0:01:35.240
and

0:01:36.180,0:01:37.620
my white devils tails

0:01:37.620,0:01:39.660
and one of these has fruits on it

0:01:41.140,0:01:42.020
the one in the

0:01:44.000,0:01:45.840
large reservoir container

0:01:45.860,0:01:46.580
had fruits

0:01:49.900,0:01:51.020
there’s one there

0:01:53.300,0:01:54.660
there’s another one

0:01:54.660,0:01:58.180
the one that’s in the self watering container is actually a nicer looking

0:01:58.320,0:01:58.820
plant

0:01:58.820,0:02:01.960
both of them are good, this is a little bigger plants

0:02:02.080,0:02:03.920
but its fruit production is

0:02:04.600,0:02:05.240
is slower

0:02:06.020,0:02:08.740
low pressure aeroponic helios hab plant

0:02:09.580,0:02:10.080
is

0:02:12.040,0:02:14.120
producing pods now, here’s one

0:02:18.140,0:02:20.780
it’s gonna have quite a few it looks like

0:02:21.400,0:02:24.760
there are a bunch about that size, some are smaller

0:02:25.180,0:02:26.540
there’s another one

0:02:28.340,0:02:28.900
my CARDI

0:02:29.180,0:02:30.300
yellow scorpion

0:02:30.300,0:02:31.360
in the hempy bucket

0:02:32.140,0:02:33.660
is looking really good

0:02:33.660,0:02:35.260
but there are no fruits but

0:02:35.260,0:02:37.800
the one in the larger reservoir wick bucket

0:02:38.040,0:02:40.040
has a lot of fruits and they are

0:02:40.080,0:02:41.520
starting to turn ripe

0:02:44.040,0:02:45.560
this one’s almost ripe

0:02:49.100,0:02:49.660
another

0:02:51.060,0:02:53.300
some back here starting to change

0:02:53.300,0:02:57.780
I think I counted there’s probably 30 fruits on this plant, maybe more

0:03:00.420,0:03:01.860
one more back in there

0:03:01.860,0:03:05.080
so I noticed with the large reservoir wick buckets

0:03:06.400,0:03:06.960
there’s

0:03:07.860,0:03:08.900
you get kind of a

0:03:08.900,0:03:11.040
I was talking to Matt Garver on this

0:03:11.040,0:03:13.240
I think it has kind of a small pot effect

0:03:14.000,0:03:14.640
where the

0:03:16.540,0:03:19.020
there’s not as much room for the roots

0:03:19.020,0:03:21.900
initially so it starts throwing out pods earlier

0:03:22.300,0:03:23.500
so I’ve got lots of

0:03:24.180,0:03:25.940
early fruits on this plant

0:03:26.240,0:03:26.960
none on the

0:03:26.960,0:03:29.740
hempy bucket one, but the hempy bucket one is a bigger

0:03:29.740,0:03:33.000
nicer plant so in the long run this will probably be better

0:03:33.700,0:03:38.340
give an update on my sunflowers, some of these are kind of falling over

0:03:38.900,0:03:39.700
a lot of rain

0:03:40.880,0:03:42.400
these look pretty cool

0:03:43.800,0:03:45.000
some flopped over

0:03:46.580,0:03:47.620
these over here

0:03:47.620,0:03:49.400
look great and there are some that

0:03:51.000,0:03:52.360
I think I’d estimate

0:03:52.420,0:03:53.540
about 8 feet tall

0:03:53.580,0:03:55.020
here’s my drip system

0:03:56.240,0:03:57.040
plants on it

0:03:57.780,0:04:00.020
for the most part these look great

0:04:00.180,0:04:02.720
I bumped the nutrients up, starting to get greener leaves

0:04:03.400,0:04:06.360
this black bhut is looking a whole lot better

0:04:06.900,0:04:08.180
Chocolate Bhutlah

0:04:09.120,0:04:10.720
seed from Anthony Nunez

0:04:11.340,0:04:12.540
looks really good

0:04:14.240,0:04:15.920
this Brazilian Red Olive

0:04:15.980,0:04:17.900
has got a lot of really pretty

0:04:18.880,0:04:19.760
peppers on it

0:04:20.280,0:04:21.080
7-Pot Olive

0:04:21.560,0:04:23.320
I need to tie this up better

0:04:24.280,0:04:24.840
but it’s

0:04:25.880,0:04:26.920
it’s got a lot of

0:04:29.080,0:04:30.040
a lot of fruits

0:04:35.020,0:04:36.540
I mean it’s pretty much

0:04:37.840,0:04:38.560
all over it

0:04:40.020,0:04:42.020
here’s my Puerto Rican Yellow

0:04:42.480,0:04:43.280
I think it’s

0:04:43.280,0:04:46.020
doing much much better since I got it outdoors

0:04:46.340,0:04:49.220
getting lots of really nice looking growth

0:04:50.300,0:04:52.060
and it did put out a bunch of

0:04:52.060,0:04:54.240
smallish kind of pods, but these are

0:04:55.240,0:04:57.560
some that are starting to turn ripe

0:04:57.560,0:05:00.020
see the yellow starting to come through on that

0:05:00.020,0:05:02.020
there’s some on the other side as well

0:05:02.180,0:05:03.220
this is my Datil

0:05:03.500,0:05:06.300
and there’s a couple pods on it, the bigger

0:05:07.860,0:05:10.020
one of the older ones is down here

0:05:10.780,0:05:12.300
this is my Queen Laurie

0:05:12.940,0:05:14.380
seed from Trent Nolan

0:05:14.380,0:05:17.500
and it’s a really nice looking plants, doesn’t have

0:05:17.780,0:05:20.420
pods yet but it does have a lot of flowers

0:05:20.420,0:05:21.220
this is my sugar rush peach

0:05:22.560,0:05:26.080
a bunch of nice looking pods that haven’t turned ripe

0:05:27.400,0:05:28.840
and my cereja da amapa

0:05:30.160,0:05:31.200
has a few fruits

0:05:34.000,0:05:35.440
this is my Tien Tsin or

0:05:35.440,0:05:36.600
Chinese Red Pepper that I’ve got growing

0:05:36.600,0:05:37.500
on my drip system

0:05:38.860,0:05:39.900
nice tall plant

0:05:40.160,0:05:42.640
this is one of my other aji painapples

0:05:42.640,0:05:45.660
it’s a clone of one I showed just a few minutes ago

0:05:46.060,0:05:46.560
and

0:05:47.100,0:05:48.300
this is mako kokoo

0:05:48.820,0:05:50.820
from, seed from Jesus Rosario

0:05:52.320,0:05:54.160
plant’s really starting to

0:05:55.340,0:05:57.340
grow it threw out a lot of small

0:05:58.680,0:05:59.180
pods

0:05:59.640,0:06:05.000
but I think it’ll, I know it’ll push out more pods when it gets established better

0:06:06.080,0:06:07.600
and this is Peach Clavo

0:06:09.800,0:06:10.680
and this is my

0:06:11.300,0:06:12.980
Jay’s Red Ghost Scorpion

0:06:15.360,0:06:17.280
possible cross, I’m not sure

0:06:18.520,0:06:20.840
but these are the pods I’ve got on it

0:06:22.440,0:06:24.760
the pods from the last plant didn’t

0:06:24.760,0:06:27.220
have the Jay’s Red Ghost Scorpion shape

0:06:27.220,0:06:28.720
and these don’t either

0:06:29.220,0:06:30.980
but I really love the plant

0:06:31.320,0:06:33.720
this is the mayan plant I got from the

0:06:33.720,0:06:36.100
nursery at work and it’s starting to push out

0:06:36.480,0:06:38.160
some little peppers on it

0:06:38.160,0:06:40.980
get the weeds out of the way, this is my yellow dystopia

0:06:40.980,0:06:42.520
and I noticed it has a pod

0:06:45.240,0:06:46.760
that’s cool, actually

0:06:46.940,0:06:49.740
there’s some bigger ones I hadn’t noticed

0:06:50.840,0:06:52.280
got those growing too

0:06:52.700,0:06:53.660
aji charapita

0:06:53.660,0:06:55.460
that’s starting to put out little fruits

0:06:57.540,0:06:59.460
the elysium oxide is a really

0:07:00.100,0:07:01.380
nice looking plant

0:07:02.260,0:07:04.020
see the first little fruit

0:07:04.460,0:07:05.020
on there

0:07:05.640,0:07:07.160
this is Andy’s King BOC

0:07:12.180,0:07:14.180
this is my Chocolate UnReaper

0:07:23.300,0:07:24.180
and this is my

0:07:25.760,0:07:26.880
el scorponero f2

0:07:28.200,0:07:29.160
it’s a D3 cross

0:07:34.940,0:07:36.540
don’t think this has any

0:07:36.540,0:07:38.940
fruits yet but this is my 7-Pot Primo

0:07:41.020,0:07:43.420
and my crossed kpakpo shito has some

0:07:43.420,0:07:45.300
peppers, these look the ones

0:07:46.420,0:07:47.380
from last year

0:07:48.140,0:07:50.460
there are one or two more back there

0:07:50.460,0:07:52.560
there’s a few others I didn’t show you

0:07:52.660,0:07:56.660
overall I’m happy, I’m still increasing the nutrients on my

0:07:57.780,0:07:58.980
fert injector but

0:07:58.980,0:08:01.220
I can see the plants are responding

0:08:03.480,0:08:04.360
like I’d hope

0:08:06.160,0:08:08.160
anyway, hope you enjoyed that
