Much faster than expected, my plants were a whopping 1 foot and ready for their last transfer. These transfers make me nervous. I had bought some buckets, and decided to transfer only one or two a day for the weeks to come.
So I decided to look online to see if I could find cheaper buckets. I did. I found some basic, square 5 gallon containers that were roughly 50% cheaper than those at the greenhouse store. Score! It wasn’t until after I paid for them that I realized I actually bought them at an online marihuana grow-store. Oops.
Gonna miss all the foliage in my window sill, that’s for sure. Might just keep 3 of them there to see what they’ll do, pepper wise.
All that’s left to do now is water them, fertilize them, check for pests and wait for them to grow flowers. I was told to rub my finger in the middle of every blossom to help move the pollen to the stamen, and so I will.
I’m having way too much fun with all these plants. So much that I also started up some lime-basil and garlic-chives. The herb garden is flourishing as well. Will keep you posted!
