I planted a new chilipod after I bought a heat-mat that I got recommended on another post I made here. It is now 51 days old and has gotten a lots of flowers and soon-to-be-flower-buds. It is very beautiful, but still super small… Not even 7 cm
I’ve tried to use the electrical toothbrush on the flowers to pollinate and it looked very effective as I could see alot of pollen falling.
I forgot to take a picture before I pruned it, but it had some huge leaves that coverd up the entire lower plant (only the top flowers were visible). Underneath it was very bushy so I figured it would get more flowers if I took them off. I was right. Now, 5 days after these picures was taken alot of new bud are to be seen further down on the plant
As you can see on the picture, the huge leaves had some yellow spots on them. Not sure if that is bad or not. (it’s crazy to see that some of the leaves were actually bigger than the plant it selves… )
The old plant died after replanting, but I harvested the seeds from the 2 chilies.
I had a failed basil pod that I put a couple of the seeds in (green pot to the left) together with some long lasting fertilizer pebbles, the rest I put in some small pots (big plants in the back). They ones in the regular pots have grown so much and are already much taller than any of my Click&Grow projects ever has been!
The one in the failed basilpod has barely started sprouting, but looks good though
I put an old temperature meter and placed the outdoor sensor on the heat-mat to better see the growing conditions.
(the front pot is just some strawberry skins I tried to propagate, and it worked on the heat-mat
