Chilli Grow 2019
« on: July 24, 2019, 07:01 PM »
First attempt at growing from seed. Cayenne plant in greenhouse is producing many many fruits :)



Jalapeno not quite as prolific but reasonable. Bhut Jolokia has many flowers but not sure if it will have time for fruit to mature and ripen.

Ghost plant below:

Looks far better than my Naga, it got a bit soaked so the leaves yellowed, then the leaves got scoffed by some unknown bug, I've just repotted it, fingers crossed.

Bhut Jolokia plant been producing lots of pods over the past few weeks. Don't know if they will have time to mature and ripen in the Scottish climate (even in greenhouse).

well, I can't compete with that
That's brilliant
here's mine anyhow
I've got quite a few plants growing, but I don't seem to get more than maybe 10 chillies per plant.
They all seemed to get this odd leaf disease though
Might be a bug?
there are little pinholes in the leaves
but the the chillies are still fine

these are from a different plant
No idea what variety they are
I get these seed packs, start them off in January
some seeds don't grow and one way or another they all get muddled up
I keep the plants in the greenhouse until it gets too hot
then keep them outside until it gets too cold
Last year though, I got nothing but leaves on all my plants

Not sure about the holes in the leaves mate, but if the fruit is fine then it's not really a problem :)

I don't know where you are in the world Pete, but mine have to stay in the greenhouse.

First pic looks like nice Jalapenos. Not sure about the second one - some Cayenne variety? I'm very much a beginner at this game.

What I would say though is, the bigger the pot, the more chillies.

living in Nottingham and currently 30 degrees!
when the chillies are flowering I find the heat makes them shed the buds, so i move them out
I put the plants back in the greenhouse late August early September when things cool down a bit or get windy
normal Nottingham summer temperatures are about 23 degrees, so today is unusual

I see you're from Scotland,  but what temperatures do you get?
I was on the Isle of Skye last week, and that was a cool 16 degrees
misty and rainy
incredibly beautiful though
and I think it has at least two Indian restaurants!

will try bigger pots, as you suggest, next year
