  1. Very nice @Bos I'm hoping for enough to make some sauces & at the very least, some pickled Jalapenos. I already know I'm going to love the pickled Jalapenos 😄 I might try something like a chillie oil as well. Depends on how it goes. It's still early days. My seeds are being delivered today. Finally. @Chris Jay it's a shame about the water situation, but at least you still have a bit of a variety going. If my chillie run goes well, I'll add a few more varieties for the next grow. Paprika is another variety I wanted to try, since we use it all the time.
  2. Lol. I definitely won't be able to handle the Apocalypse red, but I need a grow challenge & it's listed as challenging. I'll definitely share with a few of my visitors if I can successfully grow it just to see their reaction. Hopefully I won't have to call poison control/EMS. hahahaha 😈 My black friday shopping list (got a bit of a discount on the final total, just waiting on delivery, hopefully today)
  3. Any updates to the OP? I've decided on impulse to start growing some chillies, I saw a few varieties at GSR that piqued my interest. Apocalypse red, slim cayenne & early jalapenos & then some corno di toro for a sweet pepper. I've been doing birdseye for about a year now & ended up with about a kilo from a few plants last year. those have died down & come back up for summer. Hopefully I'll start the others in the next few days once the seeds arrive. I just need to make sure I have enough small pots to start the seedlings in. I'm just not sure about the apocalypse red. It's close to the reaper in heat & I'm still a noob when it comes to hot stuff. lol. even the birdseye was a bit too hot for me. I plan on making cayenne pepper & pickled jalapenos for now.
  4. Purple haze from green smoke room. Black friday special. Only wanted chilli seeds, but couldn't help myself. Lol Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  5. Use a tds/ec meter. Add either more water or more nutrients depending on what concentration you're going for. I have a 150l reservoir. Mixing small amounts are too time consuming. I feed my potted plants from the reservoir and the ones in autopots get fed whenever they need it. ;) Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  6. Nice reveg. I'm waiting on mine to start. Those plants will need bigger pots & lots of support. [emoji106] Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  7. 200 might be a bit high. You dont actually need to feed anything for the first 2 weeks. I dont know the ppm of what I'm feeding, but it's extremely low. Here's a pic of my Charlotte's dream, literally came up yesterday & the husk came off this afternoon. That's in recycled coco from last year's tobacco run. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  8. Yup, but I've only planted 2 in small pots with a very light feed. Half a teaspoon of A, B & a pinch of calmag in 1.5l water. They'll go into the autopots a month from now. I'll start with a ppm of 200 & slowly push it up a bit every 2 weeks till I get to a max of 1000ppm Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  9. You don't need additional micro nutrients with the hortimix. A & B is basically your grow & micro. The only thing I would add is calmag & maybe a bit of silica. That's what I've been using in my outdoor autopot grow. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  10. Ph down is fine. Ph up will cause the silica to precipitate out. I mix about 20ml of silica with 3ml of ph down in a 10l bucket, that gives me a ph of roughly 6.5. That goes into a 150l reservoir & if needed I adjust the ph in the reservoir. I monitor the ppm & ph in the reservoir every few days & adjust when necessary. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  11. It's been my 2nd year using liquid silica in my outdoor autopots. I'm using the silica plus from hydroponic.co.za at 20ml/150l Pros: Far fewer bugs. I had a few locusts, but they didnt do any noticable damage, so I left them. I didnt have to use any insecticides. Slightly faster growth, probably because I was also able to use slightly higher nutrient levels without burning them. The plants can handle the wind better & can bend more before breaking. Helpful if you're doing a scrog. Previous years I've had plants snapped in half. Cons: Silica can come out of solution. I've had clogged valves a few times. I'll switch to the bigger valves for next year's run. PH testing is critical & using PH up is a big nono, it will cause the silica to drop out immediately & you get the dreaded white cloud. It helps against mildew & mold, but only up until mid flower when the plant is maybe weaker. Just my 2c. I'm still relatively new to using silica. The Bay11 I grew last year had huge tight nugs. That could have been several factors, but the previous grow had severe mildew & molding the buds. I lost 90% of that one... Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  12. Niice. Mine isn't handling the outdoor cold all that well, or it's the lack of sunlight in the spot I'm growing in. I might need to tweak the feed during my next season. Tons of yellowing leaves, so I might have to harvest a bit early... Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  13. Definitely a different ballgame to weed. I've watched tons of vids on tobacco & a lot say it can be smoked as soon as it's colour cured, but that's several weeks from harvest. Growing it also takes forever. Smh. The seedlings I got from you had a long way to go before I could harvest some leaves. But one advantage is, I now have seeds for literally years to come. Just from 1 or 2 plants that I let go to seed. With my next tobacco run, there's a few things I'll do differently. Planting in the ground is a must for bigger plants & leaves & I'll also start much sooner. Maybe june/july on a windowsill & move outside when bigger. The haze looks good [emoji106] Mine is a bit behind yours, but I have other strains that's fast approaching harvest time, so theres no rush. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  14. It hung for 3 or 4 weeks to colour cure. I didnt try it till week 6 or 8, maybe longer. I want to try aging for a lot longer & see if the taste changes/improves. I'm in no rush to smoke it, so there's a few things I want to try. Maybe press it into a puck, or just jar up for a few months. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  15. Looking good. I've harvested tons of leaves from mine. I have them hanging in my shed with the door open a bit. Theres a hole in one side & vents on top for airflow. The ones that have turned brown, I've de-veined & put in a sealed bucket with some 62% boveda packs for aging/further curing. I tried a bit when I ran out of vape juice & it was pretty good. Better than a cigarette. Definitely needs to age more, but smokable. I'm tempted to get myself a pipe at some point. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
