Enjoyed cooking with fresh peppers this summer so I thought I'd try growing some inside this winter in a new flood/drain system I've put together. The peppers chosen for this project are Serrano Chili, Large Cherry and Jalapeno Gigante. These are all hot peppers from Burpee.
The seeds were germinated in rockwool with hydroton as a substrate. Plants were grown in 6" square pots in a 2x2 flood tray. Humidity domes were removed when the first set of true leaves emerged. A 125w CFL provided light until the seedlings were mature enough to move under a 400w MH sytems were they are sitting today. I planted 3 seeds per pot, 5 pots per variety. Plants were thinned down to 2 plants per pot when all seeds germinated.
There's still some things to do to the flowering chamber today before the plants can be transfered over. Here's a few pics of them in vegg. Plants are about 6 weeks old.
