ok, here goes. now, i am by far......do not have a green thumb. ive transplanted plants, uprooted etc, but never grown anything but a few sunflowers outside my window once....and some stupid seed in second grade. but ya, here goes my journey. if i make mistakes, o well, i have some more seeds.
im starting off with 1 pod of each of the peppers i bought. saw something like this online, decided to copy.
Left to Right: Bhut Jolokia (2 seeded pod), Tazmanian Habanero (2), Yellow Hungarian Hot Wax Pepper (3), Long Red Slim Pepper (3) and Bolivian Rainbow Pepper (3).
Bought some 10 dollar "heating" lamp thing at walmart. nothing special, just something to keep the seeds warm.
then covered it up to keep some humidity going. since florida's humidity levels arent exactly here yet.
hmm...im thinking about germinating.......i think that step was skipped? or can the seeds germinate under the foil like that..? let me know. thanks.
well...actually i read a bit more, some people will germinate in soil, while others not. ill keep mine in soil and see how we do. heard it was a pain until they sprout, but they should sprout in about a week. so should i keep them under the light the whole time or every day put them in the florida sun then at night, bring it under the lamp. always keeping the soil moist.
ok....so i decided to germinate my own way. this should be fine. i put water in the bag and moistened the soil a bit more and put the light directly on the cups to keep warm. although its already 79 in my house, this should put it to about 88 degrees.
also...did the whole cup in a cup strategy where water is in the bottom cup and cup with soil has a hole in it and just moisten the soil all up etc. i just added more water into the bag for extra humidity.
ok thanks, ya, i put water in the bag before i put the cups in, i have water in the bottom of the cups and then i watered the soil after putting teh moist soil into the cups and planting the seeds in and the bags are all sealed. i check on it every so seldom since...im impatient lol, but ya, very wet in there and all over the baggies. so their is pleanty of water, i just wanted to get a thumbs up of what i was doing since i just sorta....thought of doing this myself instead of following directions.
like the whole "sit them in water" or "wrap in damp paper towel". i planted them first, cause...i didnt know what germinating was til i youtubed it and i go "OOOOOOHHHHHH...........oops........" so i figured this should work just as well and the seedlings will be more comfortable.
the first morning i checked on em, it didnt look like the water in the bag heated up too much to make it "humid" so i covered the light and the cups with tin foil to hold more heat in. id say it is about 88 degrees under there all day and night. i need a thing to tell me temp.
i just checked on them and they soil is really moist. idk if that is just cause of the extra water i put in for the humidity or what, im hoping the seedlings will grow out of that and im hoping cause of the water, the seeds didnt go deepers into the soil than where i planted them. they were about perfectly the right 1/4-1/2 inch deep.
I used to be really into biking when I was younger but for one reason or another I got out of it. A few months ago I bought a new bike becuase I wanted to get back into shape and I have loved it since I got it. I researched it a ton (highly reccomended) until I found the right bike and then I...
Figured it was about time to see how many other current Rsx owners or previous enjoy slinging mud, purposely aim for the deepest puddle, and only have concrete barriers preventing us from making a U-turn.
