Home Grown 2011: Greenhouse Sensation ChilliGrow Update
Here is a mini update from Greenhouse SensationChilligrow experiment. So far I am very pleased with the results. I started with a store bought Hungarian Hot Wax, home grown Jalapeno and finally my Krakatoa chili plant is in its third year picked up from the west dean chilli fiestia which was looking on its last legs. The picture below is from July and as you can see each plant is looking very very healthy. Each plant has fruit and and continues to grow in size week by week.

You will also notice in the frame a chilli nasu plant in a pot, I have already eaten the first crop of this one so it is looking a little bear.However I have been adding a little of the water used to fill up the chilli grow each time to this pot with the liquid fertiliser supplied and as a result I have already had a full crop which has already been eaten so currently the plant I looking a little sorry for itself.
