Germination share
    #11378933 - 11/03/09 08:10 PM (8 years, 21 days ago)

I love it when things finally pop up.

My parsley on the right just finally sprouted yesterday. Oregano on left popped up a while before that planted on the same day


I just planted peruvian torch cacti, habaneros, and takanotsume chili peppers this afternoon.

Hopefully I'll have more pictures for you all of some peter peppers, bolivian rainbow peppers, and a joshua tree soon.

Just getting out of the ground is sometimes as rewarding as producing fruits. I just wanted to share, thanks for looking!

Cool.
I am germinating a lot of seeds right now, including passiflora incarnata, sceletium t., sceletium j., leonotis nepetifolia, and trichocereus bridgesii.
Happy germinating!

:awesome:


It is good when they sprout, I find waiting for them to germinate is the hardest part of growing. Good luck with your others~

I just had some Lithops optica 'Rubra' sprout a few days ago, as well as some bridgesii seeds and a couple of Ortegocactus.

I think I know who you got your peter peppers and Bolivian rainbows from. :wink: I got some as well and put them down last week, no signs of life yet.

I love germinating seeds! Good luck with them!

you should sift your soil, or make your own. Looks like it has lots of wood chips and sticks which will rob your plants of nitrogen. good luck with your seedlings. :thumbup:

I have some Khat germinating. About to get started on psychotria viridis. Ephedra Sinica is going strong as of today. Thats what I got started on growing over the last weeks on this side of the fence. If i had a better camera I would post pictures.

I got that soil from my buddy who had some potting soil. My basil doesn't seem to mind it. Can I even sift it at such a fragile stage?

All my cacti/succulents are in store bought cactus soil, except my San Paydirt which appears to have potting soil but it's already over a foot tall (about when I bought it) so it seems to be just fine oddly enough.

The two peppers from Fungus Feller :cool: are in potting soil from my parent's house, and the habanero and takanotsume are in miracle grow moisture control. I plan on using the MGMC for the rest of my peppers I'm going to plant. I just got a bunch (including the takanatsume) from the New Mexico State U. Chile Pepper institute.

The joshua tree is in special starter soil from the kit I bought when I was in Joshua Tree Nat'l Park. It's basically sand with a few tiny slivers of wood and very little soil

He means sift it before you plant. 

Also, you are going to really enjoy the Bolivian Rainbows. They are :awesome:

Hell yeah, from what I've seen they look pretty badass. I got some competitors though now from the chili pepper institute

Cajamarca - With a beautiful fruit that begins a vibrant violent unique to C. chinense and then changes to a rich red. The wonderfully fragrant aroma of "Cajamarca" captures your attention with an intense, spicy-citrus fragrance and the classic habanero undertone. Very hot.
They sure do a good job marketing it. Haven't planted it yet though, just got seeds today. Bolivian Rainbows seeds are 9 days post planting.

You'll be suprised how spicy and citrus the Rainbows are.
At least mine were.

Those look and sound interesting too.

I had mini sweet bell peppers this past growing season which just ended here over the last week, which were also rainbow colored.

Mixing your own seed raising mix is pretty simple, this is what I have used for the last ten years and it has worked without any problems for many plant species:

- 2 parts peat to 1 part washed coarse sand.


That's it! I have found using commercial potting mixes a pain ie. higher contamination rates, fungal problems and then further down the road PH issues.


And for all you chili heads, you must grow the variety 'Rocoto'. It is a fleshy chili with Black seed and is awesome in salsa and for chipotles.

A friend while I was studying gave me a fruit. He supposedly brought the seed from Bolivia, he was a native and moved to New Zealand.

I'm not growing that variety anymore as I've moved to Australia and had to leave it behind. I have currently got a variety called Rocoto Peron, which I assume is similar but it is too early to know for sure. I hope to have some of these seeds available in the future.
