2016 Season!

It’s that time of year again!  I’ve just planted the seeds for the 2016 grow season, and I’ve got some very interesting ones this year.

The list:

  • Trinidad Scorpion Butch T
  • Chocolate Fatalii
  • Aji Amarillo
  • Aji Norteno
  • Brazilian Starfish
  • Caterpillar
  • Purple Tiger

The first two I’ve grown before, but I don’t have any survivors from last year, so I’m starting some new ones.  The rest are new to me.  The focus this year is less on pure heat, and more on interesting shapes and colors.  The grow updates should be more interesting even before the pods start, the Purple Tiger in particular is a very pretty plant.

I ordered my new seeds from The Hippy Seed Co (www.thehippyseedcompany.com), which is based in Australia.  They have a great reputation online, and they added a very nice personal touch to the order (see below).  Highly recommended based on the price, shipping, and customer service.  I’m sure the seeds are good quality as well.

I’ve learned a few macro photography tricks lately, so I hope to provide some very up close and personal pictures of the process this year.  I hope you enjoy!

A hand written note is a very nice touch!:

Got the grid plotted out, let’s see who is first to sprout!


That’s it for today, hopefully we’ll see some sprouts in the next week or so.  I got the heating pad last year and it really speeds thing up.

Stay spicy amigos
