I got some pictures to show.
I have 5 peppers growing on my 2 New Ace (F1) Pepper plants, with a possible 6th pepper starting. Pepper plants are self pollinating, but require cool nighttime temperatures. I have reduced the heat in the grow room and added a room size humidifier, this has been enough to get some peppers growing. Until I got the new light fixture there was a bit of over crowding, so some stuff has become more leggy than should have happened. The lights are enough to keep the plants growing and producing. The pepper plants are constantly dropping flowers, so are more sensitive to conditions than the tomatoes. I am most pleased with the peppers to date.
I have 2 Sweet Banana Pepper plants, one of the plants got stunted when it germinated, the plant could not shed it’s seed cover, but now is doing OK. The other plant became leggy, now that I am able to give the plant more light, seems like it wants to flower. So I am hopeful on these plants.
The tomato plants seem to be doing OK, but am waiting to see how they perform. Tomatoes seems to be sensitive to over watering, so I have to be careful with that. 20 – 25 tomatoes have set and are growing, I am growing miniature varieties, Red Robin and Tiny Tim. The tomatoes seem to be less sensitive to the light, temperature and humidity conditions. There are 4 tomato plants, 2 of each variety.
This has been a learning event, I may yet be picking tomatoes and peppers during the winter months.
