As the post Christmas excitement settles down and we prepare for the New Year celebrations, we thought we'd share with you the week #8 update for our chilli plant in Burnley. As it was mentioned in week #7, it’s certainly not a habanero as stated on the seed packet, habanero’s develop downwards, whereas these chilli’s are growing upwards! We asked if anyone could ID them on the popular Hydroponics Facebook Group, suggestions included a Thai Chilli as we originally thought, a Hungarian Hot Wax or possibly a Fresno Chilli so only time will tell, but if you think you know, please do get in touch!

Apart from not knowing what plant it actually is, we’re elated with how she’s growing, the peppers are developing nicely, she seems happy sat in the GT205 NFT System and is still under the MaxiBright 315w CDM light which is on a 12/12 schedule.

Feed wise, there’s been no change so is still on the following VitaLink regime that's pH'd to 6...

- 3ml per litre VitaLink HydroMax Bloom A&B
- 0.3ml per litre VitaLink Silicon
- 0.5ml per litre VitaLink RootStim
- 2ml per litre VitaLink Fulvic
- 1ml per litre VitaLink Turbo

That’s everything for week #8, here’s a quick round up of the latest pictures, but if you want to see the plant in the flesh, pop along to our Burnley store where you can see it in all’s its chilli glory.
