Dark days indeed.
Well, not that dark, but unfortunate. I lost a few plants due to underwatering. There are survivors. There is hope.
I came home to this horrific scene yesterday:
As you can see, it looked like all but a couple were goners. If I was crushed after the seed fiasco last season, I’m at an all time low when I see this.
After some water, some more recovered than I expected.
Now I am left with 2 Moruga Scorpions and 3 Naga Morich’s. I don’t have much room for error. The crop has thinned.
I have re-potted the survivors into solo cups, hopefully they extra soil can hold more water and the plants can go longer in between waterings. I will also start moving them outside slowly, giving them only a half hour of sun to start and then gradually increasing.
The 3 Nagas:
And all the cups, still under lights:
Outside, there are cayenne’s ripening, last years “pseudo-scorpion” plant looking good, the new Carribean Red plant getting bigger, a cat, and some cucumbers that are going to take over my yard. Respectively:
That’s all folks. Water your plants.
