Ok, now I understand this competition.

Funny Project.:D

Greetings Christian
That's a really interesting challenge. I like it, and I'll sign up.
I already bought some table-tennis balls and found out that it's not that easy to make the appropriate holes.
Nevertheless, I'll cultivate some wild varieties in those balls.
that is crazy. Sadly I have no time to participate, I probably will try it during the summer, though!
Order to permit to take part in competition for those who has not yet registered, the AIASP Association directive committe has decided to amend paragraph 3 of the competition rules as follows:

The race starts on 1th April and ends on 31th October (also applies to competitors of the other hemisphere)

prolonging the closing date for the publication of the photos (the other points are confirmed).
Nice update! Your plant looks great!
I'm once again amazed at the adverse surroundings & conditions plants manage to survive in.
If only people were that resilient!

What sort of Chili is it, or is that a secret and we'll have to wait until after the competition? ;)
Pretty amazing! :thumbsup:

It's astounding that chilis are able to grow that large, with roots that have only such little space to grow roots!
They even flower, and I'm sure thes will grow pods as well!

It is kind of a crazy competition, but why not? :D
Just keep this thread updated, so we can see how the plants evolve! ;)
Wow :w00t:

The plant looks very healthy.
Its crazy that they can grow up like this in such little ping pong balls :thumbsup:
