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.

Hello! and is it too late to start ulupica and chacoense?

First of all hello :)

I've been growing chilis for 3 years, but diversified quite a bit this year with annuum, chinense, baccatum, and pubescens versus annuum only in previous years.  All are domesticated except a few overwintered tepins (which look much happier now the ladybirds have eaten the aphids!)

Now my regular plants are getting big enough to pot on into their final pots, can I start off some of my chacoense & ulupica seeds?  I'm not so bothered about a big harvest this year (even just one pod would be fine).  I think I should be able to overwinter them ok?  So should I start off a few seeds to see what happens, or leave it until next year?

Current plants (excluding tepins):


At least Ulupica Large is suprisingly fast one! why not chaco too. Of course it depends on the season and care it gets, but I'd definitely go for it.

You got nothing to lose.
Even in worst case, You can cut the plants down and make them Bonchis for the winter and turn them back to normal plants at the start of the next season, easy! :)

Yeah, that's kinda what I figured.  I've got a random ulupica and chaco from Bolivia (at least I hope that's what they are!) and an ulupica large on its way.

Do they need any special conditions to aid germination? - I assume that the 28C is mainly for more tropical chilis?


No 28-30c is about the sweet spot for germination for most variety's ive found,the variety's you have mentioned will take longer to germinate..But this isnt always the case and ive had ulupica germinate in a week and then other seeds take many weeks.


A couple of weeks after sowing them, I've got a couple of ulupica seedlings :)

The chacoense are showing no signs of life...
