2011 Chilli (plant) thread

Recommended Posts

Just for brevities sake, I decided to re-start the chilli thread.

 

Following Mungler`s instructions I put mine in good quality sowing compost, with both clingfilm and a clear plastic top over them, around 2 weeks ago and yesterday they had appeared ! I think that the use of the radiator and placing them in the sun has helped a quick germination.

Next lot will go in, in a week or two.

 

So have you sown yours yet or have you any that have overwintered ?

Mine are sown, in the patented window box (the one that was 'overcrowded' last year) cling film on.

They are in the shed which is fairly cold but does get the sun when it comes out, nothing is showing yet, so I may bring them indoors.

No idea what they are as they were from Mungler. They are small, hot and prolific, what more can you want ?

I've bought one of those 5 tier growing greenhouse thingies to go on the south-facing balcony...

 

Hoping for some nice chillies this year, after a dismal performance last year :blush:

 

Not sure what types to go for, but something mid-scoville :blink:

I sowed mine a couple of weeks ago and achieved a 90% germination rate. Then I managed to kill about 80% of them off :blush:

 

So, sowed a few more seeds again last night and will pay more attention this time.

 

I have plenty of Cherry Bomb seeds and a two year old bag of an unknown mixture made up of mostly Prairie Fire. If anyone wants some seeds send me a PM with your address.

I was inspired by the thread last year, and so this evening bought some seeds. Unfortunately saw the great offer from Piebob too late :(

I sowed mine about 2 weeks ago but not had any through yet, but hopefully I’ll be seeing shoots in a few days. I haven’t over wintered any chillies but I’ve got a mini red pepper plant that permanently lives in the house. That’s already flowered and has some little peppers on it. :D

I have a 1 year old habanero growing strong and a very mild pimento thats just coming into first fruit. Will be seeding a few cayenne in a week or two and am swapping a spare pimento seedling for a hungarian hot wax or jalapeno!

 

I keep my on a windowsill in large pots, they seem to have lasted the winter quite well so I'm hopefully going to have a good crop this year!

 

Chillicious!

I would like to possibly grow some chillis just to see what they turn out like. I would be looking something with medium heat, which chillis should I be considering? Also I have never grown them before so I would like as many tips as possible.

I grew some Jalepenos last year,and this year i've some Scotch Bonnet on the go, I planted 10 seeds,and have just given 4 away,i've got 4 that are around 3" tall,and have just moved them to a large pot where they will stay.They have been on the window sill in the kitchen from the start,and I will move them out side when (hopefully) there isn't any risk of frosts.
