You got quite a system there. What do you use for soil? Will the Walmart bags hold up all season?

Image

Mine's a little more modest. Going mainly with self-watering containers. Have a decent variety, mostly from seed. I was only able to get one Lemon Drop to sprout, hope it survives. Also going with Serranos, Jalapenos, Hot Banannas, Habanero, Super Chiles and Hawaiians.

Image

Found a great local nursery with tons of pepper seedlings. Picked up this Dragon Pepper just because.

Image

Of course also need the mint (mojitos and julips) and basil.

Im running a couple test bucket of 3 parts coco coir and 1 part perlite. CNS17 Grow ferts and worm castings.

The ones below are getting mostly Alaska fish and kelp pellets for tomato/vegetable and worm castings.
A few others with Ecoscraps potting mix and coco coir at 50/50 but the Ecoscraps already has coco coir in it.
Image

The rest are mushroom compost, Ecoscraps compost "soil", peat moss and pine bark. That mix look like this...
Image

All of them get the occasional "compost tea" also and a little Cal/Mag later on.

Forgot to mention.

Ive got some good lemon drop seeds from my plants last year. I got around 90% germination from the ones i sprouted. If you still have enough time in your season i have extra i can spare.

Thanks for the offer but I think I'm good. In fact I have a few extra Hab seedlings I'm trying to give away.

"Coco coir," had to Google that. Transitioning to hydroponic? I've been playing with a couple of shredded bark/compost mixes. I am also trying to re-use some Wally World potting soil (Earthgro - a mistake) from last season by mixing it with other things. One nursery guy was singing the praise of a particular compost that he claims is one of the best, but it's got biosolids (another thing I had to Google), not too sure about that.

Coco coir once well rinsed is a excellent replacement for peat moss because it is renewable and ph is more neutral. Peat moss is not renewable and acidic. Its only drawback is it needs to be buffered with some calcium which is an easy fix. http://www.calyxking.com/blog/the-impor ... coco-coir/

The CNS17 Grow 3-1-2 is a hydro nutrient but used as in "drain to waste" feed charts its fine for pots or soil also. One quart makes around 64 gallons of fertilizer when mixed to slightly over 3-1-2 and a quart is around $11-13. I also use Alaska fish and kelp for veggies and tomato. Its 4-6-6 and 7% calcium. I wanted to use Jobes organic water soluble veggie and tomato but nobody had it locally. It has some of the stuff ProMix brags about in there potting mixes but Jobes calls it Biozome. The Jobes also has a really healthy shot of calcium. Around 8% iirc.

For mulch/bark look for pine bark fines. Jolly Gardener and Timberline sell them but they are labeled "Soil Conditioner". IMO its killer in potting mix. The JG version is just pine bark fines. The Timberline has a little bit of other stuff added.

Wow, yours are moving along.

Mine finally started to take off, except for the serranos, they are a mystery.

Some jalapenos and banana peppers showing, not habs yet.

Had some Early salted jalapenos today on burgers. A little bit of a mild smoked hab sauce from Belize too. Ive got peppers on all of mine except the MOA Yellow, poblano and Thia Giant Orange. The 7 Pot, Aji Cito and Mucho Nacho have been especially good producers.
