The Viparspectra XS1500 is the newest iteration of their quantum board grow lights for 2020. The light dimmable with max wattage at 150 watts. It has a mixed spectrum of 3000K, 5000K, 660nm red, and 730nm IR. It is attached to a full aluminum heat seat. It is similar to the Pro series, P1500 grow light they came out with, in early 2020 but has upgraded Samsung LM301B diodes and an HLG series Meanwell driver.
The Aji Chombo is a larger, ribbed, habanero type pepper from the Panama.
The review pod is one I grew, the seeds were Hugo Vera.
The amount ate: Sidewall slice Heat: 7 Flavor: 5 Burn Profile: tongue, mouth, back of throat Effects: none Cap Cramps: none
This pepper was very hot, more than expected. They typically are supposed to have a distinct fruitiness, but the one I grew was more floral, with much higher than habanero level heat. I think it would be great for hot sauces or powders.
This is a pepper cross from Khang Starr of MOA Scotch Bonnet x Brazilian Ghost.
The review pod is one I grew, the seeds were saved from the previous year’s grow. The seeds were originally sent to me by Khang Starr.
The amount ate: Sidewall slice Heat: 7 Flavor: 9 Burn Profile: Tongue, back of the throat, ears. Effects: none Cap Cramps: none
This is an awesome pepper. It has the looks, flavor, and sweetness of MOA Scotch Bonnet, but with much more heat. The heat effects/signature of similar to some super hots, but not as intense as superhot peppers. It’s much hotter than scotch bonnets/habaneros.
The review pod is one I grew, but the seeds were from pepperlover.com.
The amount ate: Slice of pod Heat: 0 Flavor: 7 Burn Profile: none Effects: none Cap Cramps: none
This is a very thick-walled, juicy pepper, similar to Red Bell, but with less sweetness. It has a slightly acidic flavor. The plants I have grown were no super productive but is an interesting pepper, worth growing.

Mars Hydro sent me their SP150 grow light for review. This pulls 129 watts and fits great in a 2 x 2 grow tent. I have mine set up over some germinating Chocolate Rocoto seeds. I’ll post videos of the progress.
