Here is one grown in a 3 gallon container. Size: 5.xx feet. So in 5 gallon you should expect 6-7 maybe.

Do you have any pictures of Aji Amarillo in the Earthbox? How many did you put in each box?


This is this year's Earthbox garden, but I wasn't going to try A Amarillo in one.

To heavy to move once they took off. I expected maybe 3-4 ft but they grew to 5+ ft.
I was harvesting through early November.

Oh, I see! That is the Earthbox with four plants?

That is really impressive looking Shrinkwrap.


I hope you don't mind my asking as you have probably exolained in another thread somewhere,but the buckets..are they Deep Water Culture or something similar?


I found a couple of Aji Rico in the local garden center,so I am looking forward to them.


Thanks to Fred Hempel with regards to watering as well.

Thank you! It all seems like such a good idea until it gets really hot.

I have 5 gallon buckets with a variety of setups, but those in the picture with the black net bucket lids are non-circulating , "kratky" style. I don't know if they will work for the long haul. I also have some set up with sub-irrigation reservoirs. Those worked well for chinenses peppers last year.
