August/September Update.

Well…it’s time for another update…the plants in the Hydro greenhouse have grown huge with loads of leaves, despite being cut back earlier.

So, I gave them a quick trim to see what was going on in there ! I have to say, I was slightly disappointed…. although the plants all had pods,and loads of flowers,However I’d expected a lot more. I’m not sure if this is down to the lack of light being able to penetrate through the foliage, or the nutrients I’m using. I’ve already decided to change a few things next year, the Quadgrows will be replaced by 2 six plants NFT systems, and I’m also going to use a couple of different nutrients.I’m getting another 12 foot greenhouse and will revert back to sowing my seeds on Halloween night, then growing on the seedlings under lights, as I’M sure the extra couple of months helps the plants later on.
The plants in the NFT are doing ok, these being Infinity,Nagabon and Butch T….. but strangely of the 4 plants in the Wilma…only the Infinity has done any good ! The Bhut, Fatlii, and Butch T have no flowers and no pods !
The biggest concern for me now, is getting enough light and heat to ripen what pods are left on the plants in all greenhouses. I have loads of unripe pods, as you will see from the following pics.

This has been a good producer.

Don’t know if these will ripen, they take ages !

Another good producer, however pods have heat but not great flavour.

Well that’s it for now…my next update will be in October or November, depending how things go.

  1. I can’t believe how dense it is in that greenhouse. They’ve really taken over LOL!!! Weather wise it’s been bad this year and I still have pods that are yet to ripen. The pictures are really clear too.

    By the time December comes around your plants will be quite big if they are started on Halloween. How do you get around that? Do they stay in small pots until spring time or are they potted up before then?

  2. Hi Spicey, I’ve always started my seeds on Halloween night, except this season which I regret. They get to a fair size and stay in smaller pots under lights. As soon as the time comes, usually about March, they go into bigger pots in the heated greenhouse
