Jalapeno Peppers?

Hi All,

  Do we have collective experience growing jalapeno peppers in the (tall) ags?  I saw the mini jalapenos growing in an ag at a local hardware store this summer.  Awesome.  I went back last week to treat myself to a seed kit.  No more aerogarden (they had the thing caged in hardware cloth in the summer!) and only a few seed kits - no peppers (boo).  So I am now free to either order the seed kit or try my own seeds.  Any suggestions?  Any success with ag nutes or should I go with GH liquid nutes?  I gotta go find Peats guide.  Next up is a cucumber grow....

That sounds very pretty,

That sounds very pretty, Beth!

Maybe I've grown those peppers as ornamentals, too. The fruit had the most amazing cycle of colors. White, yellow, orange, red, purple, or something. Or is this a different colorful pepper?

For once, I'm actually warmer up here than you are down there. But only just. The leaves are turning in earnest now...

Hi All,   Picked up a Chilli

Hi All,

  Picked up a Chilli pepper kit at the local Garden center - they just got a new shipment in!  Woo Hoo!  Interesting, these are all 7 pod kits (good for me).  The nutes are in great shape - BUT, I think I'll do the GH nutes for these after they sprout.  Now, I have no plan to plant 7 pepper plants in one ag.  I'm thinking 2 mini jalapeno and one of the ornamental types.  I'll save the ag nutes for the rest of the little peppers.  I believe I have actually grown these other peppers - they are ornamentals, very hot, but pretty.  I still have an earthbox full of ornamentals.  We dry them and use them to spice up tomato sauce.  The weather is going to be awful the next five days.  Supposed to be only in the mid 40 F's through this weekend, so it is time for the fall indoor garden to get started.  Peat - cucs are getting started this weekend!
