Help me name my ghost pepper!

    Ok, I need a name for my ghost pepper, but I want to name it after someone on the forum.

    Names I'm considering

    Russ (Russ_Watters) because Russ is hot and fiery.

    Greg (Greg Bernhardt) because he's strong and in control and can make your eyes tear up.

    V50 (Vanadium 50) because you don't want to mess with him.

    Doc Al because, well, because he likes sardines, and that would go with the ghosts.

    Monique because under that cool exterior, she can be very fiery.

    I don't want to list too many because I want to see some creative nominations.

    Here is my pepper, taken just now, you can see the flower buds.

    So, recommend someone with a brief explanation of why, then I will put up a poll so we can vote.

    It's no longer the hottest pepper, but still very hot.

    Anthromorphic qualities for a Ghost Pepper, eh. That being the case, my vote goes to V50. He was the first mentor I had run in when I joined. He can be pithy, short and to the point and does not suffer fools easily. No offense intended, I respect and admire your influence here as a mentor.

    I never dreamed when I started growing these hard to grow things we would be naming one after a person. Having said that, I will be starting a "The Hard to Grow Thread" where I plan to continue the saga of improving my growing technique. I know some here grow beautiful, but finicky flowers, etc... I want the thread title to be open ended. There may be knowledge that could apply to different species of plants, not just peppers. Having it in one place would help to keep to have to go digging in different threads for it.

    Rhody...

    I'm honored, you know me too well :wink:

    I think you should call them Turbo peppers. The reason is obvious: he's the expert on hot stuff :biggrin:

    Boo Rhody. Or anyone else's name that you see fit. But since the seeds DID come from him......

    I can be persuaded to change my vote if and only if V50 makes an appearance by posting in this thread !!!

    Rhody... evil dooer, (shades of Peng...)

    Turbo,

    If you meant "Casper the Friendly Ghost", the the second "a" becomes an "e", unless you had something else in mind.

    Ooh Pengwuino!!! Looks innocent, but will make you regret messing with him.

    Micromass, no, micro is too sweet for this pepper, I'll name my flower after him.

    Lisab because she looks like a plant fairy.

    Remember, nominations must belong to PF. This is, after all, a plant that exists due to PF (and Rhody).

    That's good!

    If he wins, maybe he can make an avatar for my collection with smoke tendrils coming out of his beak.

    If it has to be a forum member I vote for Janus. If you nix the J that is where the fire will be the day after...
