I actually get a bit further south. Hobart in Tasmania (in the land of Oz) is at 42 deg 87' south. This leaves me with a reasonably short growing season. This year I've experimented with hydroponics under glass (actually polythene tunnel) but don't use any lights. Seems to be pretty successful so far, although the fruit is still to ripen so I can't comment on the heat value of them. Anyone else out there using hydroponics to grow their chiles, and if so, any tricks/hints to pass on?
