Tervehdys, kaksi samaan aikaan sattunutta teknistä muutosta / ongelmaa summa aiheutti vajaan viikon katkon foorumille. Nyt palvelinohjelmisto on jouduttu päivittämään uuteen ja sekä ulkoasu että toiminnallisuus on muuttunut. Toivotttavasti ei ainakaan kovin paljoa huonompaan suuntaan. Odottamattomia ongelmiakin saattaa ilmaantua.

Traditional growing / Vs: Overwinter Question
elokuu 20, 2013, 18:16:09 ip
Hi, thank you all for all of your inputs. I would like to keep two of them to produce some pods and the rest are for overwinter (10 liter soil for one plant, keep them almost dry and less fertilizer).

I am very glad to get all these information  :) .

Hi Toby, thank you for the advice. I will do all my best.

Traditional growing / Vs: Fatali has problem

I asked this question before but I could not get any solution. Probably there will be so many factors for this problem. Anyway I did something last week for my plant. I sprayed milk, 1 part milk and 9 part water, it looks like a bit better or may be just my feeling. Fortunately none of the pods are not dropped and no leaves drooping and fell.

Hi PP, thank you for the reply. I have the following grow lights:

1. One piece 36W LED grow lights
2. Five pieces 10W LED grow lights
3. One piece 24W T5 6400K
4. Two pieces 36W FSL 6400K

I have read about overwinter plants but I never read about the quantity of the soil, last year I lost all the overwinter plants. I watched some video of overwinter and then I did. Thank you again for this awesome information.

PP, thank you for the reply.

How many hours should I provide lights for one plant?

For overwinter plants are Scorpion, Ghost, Fatali, 7Pod, Rocoto and Snow White they are very big plants.

Hi chili lovers,

Is it possible to keep this plant without overwinter, indoor with grow light. Not only to keep this plant alive, I am thinking about productivity too just like outdoor. I started this plant from seed indoor this season and it has been outdoor many months now.

Another questions is, is it possible over winter multiple plants in one big container?

Thanks in advance.

The pods are not damaged but the leaves are getting worse.

I think our members do not have much problems except me  :-[

I have few Fatali Yellow plants they are still doing very well but I am worried for the possible problems in near future.

The first sign of problem was, the leaves are crispy/brittle like potato chips and old leaves also dropped earlier than the others (scorpion, ghost, 7 pods etc). I have some minor problems of aphids and leafhoopers too.

Last week we got rain and I found one of the Fatali containers were full of water, all the pine bark mulch were floating, it was flooded about 6/7 hours, then I opened the drainage hole and drained the water completely (soil is well drained).

Now the leaves have developed some kind of rusty color but I do not know the real cause of these problems. I have been told to treat/flush out the soil with vinegar mixed water but I am a bit hesitate to do it because it can change the pH level a lot.

Here is the pictures.

Closed up shot

This plant is very young and the leaves/stem are also very tender but has a lot of pods. Still now none of the pods dropped. Some tips of the leaves are dried/burnt I think it is wind damage because since last few days we are getting very strong wind.

All my plants get the same growing condition/water/fertilizer.

I am requesting your advice to prevent any possible problems.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Dethlock, thank you for the input. Over doing such as over fertilize/water is really giving a lot of problems to the plants.

Hello Davve, thank you for the quick response and opinions.

I think so it could be related with photosynthesis.

I have many Scorpion Moruga Blend Yellow they are getting ripe, I will keep them for over-ripe. Rocoto De Seda are getting change color, Ghost and Fatali are not yet ripe.

As a new hobby gardener I have a lot of questions. May be some of the questions were not be so important but my curiosity pushes me to ask the questions  :).

Plants have no brain so there may not be a question of "plant psychology". This question arises due to my practical experiences. I do not have enough space for my plants so I moved them so many times before, at least twice/thrice a day. The plants are getting bigger and moving around damage a lot of new branches too. Some of the plants I stopped moving around and I found that they have grown more natural and better than the frequently moving one. Touching and bending the leaves and branches to find insects/bugs are not what I meant. I moved them from one location to other location. I am not sure it is the plants' psychology or my psychology. In any case I think my plants do not like to be disturb.

Have you got any experiences just like I have? I am looking for your opinions.

Another question here is "How long ripe pods can stay on the plants without any damage?" I have many Super Hot Chili plants with ripe pods. They are so beautiful I have been waiting to get ripe most of them in the plants. I think if I removed all the ripe pods then there should be possible to get second harvest but I do not care much about it. Still the plants are getting flowers and new pods too.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Feint, yes, the first one is also outside. For photo taking purpose I put inside the room for a while.

I have other wild chili plants too such as Wild Tepin and Blue Mystery they are growing very well but I like the taste of Chacoense, the flavor and heat are good for raw eating.   

Thank you again for the quick response.

Hi Feint and Toby, thank you for the question and your time. Yes, there is a question  , I did not make it clear, sorry  :-[.

Here are the pictures.

This one has no flower and it was the best plants so I re-potted in about 2 gallon container.

These two are in about two liters containers, all of them are outdoor plants.

Thank you again for your response  :).

I have few wild chili C.chacoense plants all of them have a lot of flowers and pods except one. This one is one of the best healthy plants but no flowers. All of them are same age and same batch/same seeds source.

Thanks in advance

Thank you all for your opinions.

I have several super hot chili plants, some of them look very normal their small branches and leaves and some of them are not normal looking, too much small branches and leaves. So visually if it looks too much I do pruning the plants. Some of the small branches never grow big most of them are in the base stems too.

A beginner's mistake made again. I found some aphids on my Goji plants and I sprayed Bayer's insecticidal soap and the problem has been solved without hurting the plant.

After a few days I found some black aphids on my Aji Amarillo. Really I hate use insecticide/pesticide on my chili plants I never ever got any positive result from them. Last year also Bayer's insecticide/pesticide gave the same problem. This times also I was hesitated to use it but I thought Goji had no problem so it would be fine with the chili plants. So I sprayed the leftover Bayer's Insecticidal Soap. As a result the leaves are burned and a lot of flowers were lost however the pods are still hanging on the plant.

Have you had any experiences like this before and if so how did you fix the problem? Seriously I need your advice.

Thanks in advance.

My rocoto have some kind bumpy spots on the pods. the bumpy spot skin is not soft or hard it is normal.

Most of the time they could not get sunlight because the rocoto plant has a lot of dense leaves.

Please help me to find out this problem and a solution.

Thanks in advance.
