Not many left to repot now

The chile pepper year 2012 is progressing! Today I repotted three more in bigger pots.

From left to right - Canario, Indian frutescens and Cumari (Salvador).

I have not decided yet. But maybe the canario will get an even bigger pot. Either that one, or a nice baccatum that can grow really big. We'll see later....

Maybe repot tomorrow
Dedo de moca
Orange cheiro
Aji norteño '03

Still in the first tiny pots. I don't know if they will make it... They don't look very strong.

Major repotting Friday


It's been some really nice days lately, so the plants have been enjoying themselves a lot in the window... Therefore it was time to repot this happy bunch :-)

Sometimes they don't get enough light, and stretch too much towards the window. That makes them tall and weak. When I repot them, I plant them "deep" in the pots, so they can develop roots, and get stronger and more robust. Here is an example of that.
Before: Here is my 7 pot brain strain red before I put soil in the pot.

After: As you can see, I have planted it quite deep in the soil. That's OK, and new roots will develop.

Here are the first three. From left to right. 7 pot brain strain red, 7 pot primo, 7 pod brown.

And the second batch. Bode roxa, bode roxa and black naga.

It's hard work! So we decided to go out for an ice cream. We sang - I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream :-) A beautiful day!

Coming back home, I repotted two more. In front - Douglah, and behind it is Black Cayman.

Phew. Time for an espresso!

Wishing you all a great weekend!

Trinidad Scorpion Morouga Blend

Hi again!

Today I met Patrik over a "chile lunch". We were mostly talking about guess-what... :-)

I got a surprise today. Patrik gave me one of his Trinidad Scorpion Morouga Blend plants. Thank you Patrik! So say hello to our latest member of the family.

It is said to currently be the hottest chile pepper on the planet.Phew. I'm sweating just to think about it. Patrik writes about it on his blog:
Since it's a new variety for me, I borrow a picture from Patriks blog. Doesn't it look great?!

There are quite many clips on YouTube about this variety, but I liked this one :-) Gives a hint of what to expect...

Hot regards,
