Im going to be patient this year.. mix in and going to plant late if I plant anything. I'm done experimenting. Hope I have the knowledge to nail whatever I decide to do.

Chemo is my personal choice

ok ok dont shout ... using attachments for pics seems to be the best we have now here. Or use off site links such as photobucket, which dill uses.

First ya gotta size/re-size yer pics to a bigger size but no more then 800x600, at a medium compaction. Try to keep below then 150k in size.
What is the source of the pixs, camera, phone, padd ..? are you uploading them that small?
At min .. if ya don’t have it, get irfanview for viewing/manipulating pixs, freeware and damn good shit.



reduce that mini bell container to ONE plant. and/or transplant some to other pots,, one per pot, just like canna :)

The pics, except the first one were taken with my phone. Then I emailed them to myself and then saved and posted from my computer... Maybe I should check my phone to see if I can take pics in a bigger size...?

Are the peppers going to need twine or a screen/mesh to hold them up? Again, if it were not for canna, I would be clueless where to even begin... They are in soil right now, but I was thinking about a hand water system in coco... I need to do it soon tho cause they seem to be growing 1/8th to 1/4 inch a day currently...

As for pics ya just going have to play around with the camera/phone and resulting jpegs.

Yeah bamf, you need a stake or stakes to help hold the branches up. A tomato cage works well too. Personally I’d leave em in soil. More forgiving when you forget to water.
Here are a couple of mini bell plants I tries to turn into houseplants, with limited success (needed more light). Notice I used one center stake to tie em up.

how much memory do they take up when first downloaded from your camera?

i use paint to downsize,
kiinda tedious, but the only way ive ever figured.

open a picture in paint, if its from your camera,
you should only be able to see the top left corner,
would have to use the scrolls to see the rest

select all in the edit menu
then select resize out of the image menu

change the numbers in the two boxes that appear,
they saw 100 when you first open,
change them both to 40 and see what it did

now the picture only takes up 40% of the space it formerly did,
but its an image on a blank page the size of the original

now you have to scroll down to that right bottom corner
and drag it left and up till its just the size of the 40% image

now, save as the smaller version,
load it and see,

mabe 50% would have been better, mabe 25%

Don't believe in this global warming bull shit.

till your soil first dry spell you get between now and May 15.

I'm sorry Ben what was that about pictures?

Any nude fotos of me doing Lindsey Lohan are fake and attempts to defame me publicly. Anyone found out publishing any of my pictures of me fucking Lindsey Lohan will be sued.

I am not a slut I am a human being.

speaking of slut... one was over friday night and thought it would be a good idea to ust grab a hand full of baby pepper plants and snatch them from the soil, just before asking me for a plastic bag...
