Wow, so just under two weeks have passed and these pepper plants have gone crazy. I just got finished doing a complete water change as it was time to add nutrients. If you want to see how I did it I wrote it up under the Tips section.

Just prior to the water change I had to raise the lights as three of the plants were nearly touching the lights. The two runts I mentioned previously (a mini Jalepeno pod and a Purple Super Hot pod) are still lagging but growing none the less. At this point I have to add over a pint of water every day to keep it filled to the right level. They are really starting to drink.

And in other news, I have found about a dozen of these little guys so far...

As you probably know flowers are step 1 to the generation of peppers (and many other types of plants as well)
