I’m growing a Malagueta x Khang Starr White Thai under the Sansi LED floodlight. Both the parent plants were grown under this light also. I’ve been using this light for almost a year now. Although it isn’t marketed as a grow light, it actually does a great job for both vegetative growth and fruiting. I’m also using it over two Kratky grown peppers, a ‘pepper in a can’ and some succulent plants. I noticed they have a newer one that is twice the size and power. I might try it out in the near future.
Note: Sansi sent me this light for free to evaluate.
My son and I tried the Firewalker Running with the Reaper hot sauce. It wasn’t nearly Reaper hot but does have a nice flavor. It is a bit hotter than their original hot sauce, which is more habanero based.

Sansi has sent me the second version of their 15-watt full spectrum grow light. In the video below, I show the unboxing and setup, as well as power and light tests. I have it set up over some succulents and will post a follow-up video showing the progress, after 30 days.

I’ve been using the Sansi LED floodlight as a test grow light since August of 2018. This light isn’t marketed as a grow light, it is for general utility, illumination. Sansi sent me this light for free to review. The color temperature is 5600K, which I think is great for growing. I suspected it would be only ideal for vegetative growth, but my plant test subjects have both fruited under it, not once, but twice.

I’ve called it the HLG plant because it’s the only one I’ve had under my Horticulture Lighting Group HLG-100 3000K light. The pepper plant is an unknown cross with Lightning Mustard Hab and has grown prolifically. I need to make room in the tent and make use of the light for this year’s pepper starts. So I pruned it way back, and trimmed the roots, and moved it from the 27-gallon tote to a 5-gallon bucket. I also changed the nutrients from Flora Nova Grow to Dyna-Gro 7-9-5. I’ll soon move it out of the tent entirely and put it under one of my red/blue LED lights. I’ll need to sanitize the grow tent and set up space for my new pepper plants.
Most of my pepper plants have been transferred out of the seed starting system and AeroGardens, into small wicking cups. I’ll probably put most of them in tote lids so they can all feed through the wicks out of the totes.
Here are some pics of the plant I just pruned back.

Sansi recently sent me their new 40-watt Daylight spectrum LED grow light for review. This is a very nice light, with good, even distribution of light. The PAR values were not bad, considering the power draw of 35.5 watts.
Mr. Hua reimbursed my purchase of this grow light for an unbiased review. Also, I earn commissions for purchases made through the following links. This is at no extra cost to you and helps support my site and YouTube channel.
This is a two months update on the Mr. Hua 200 watt cob grow light. The light does very well, but I think the specs are a little exaggerated, as far as coverage area, and light intensity they claim. The plants I’ve had under it have responded well though. They advertise it as a 600 watt, but the actual power draw is around 200 watts. You can see my video update with time-lapse below.
I recently purchased a bottle of Chocolate Plague hot sauce from a jerky shop in Helen, GA. It was a bit pricey, but I think it was a limited run edition from Puckerbutt pepper company. This was made in collaboration with Steven McLaurin, who created the version of Chocolate Bhutlah featured in this hot sauce.
This one of the better tasting sauces I’ve had for the level of heat it brought. A little goes a long way, but the flavor is very good. You can taste the Chocolate Bhutlah, along with the vinegar which gives it a nice twang.
I did find it for sale on Amazon, much cheaper than I paid in the store.
