    Peat discs and heated propogators! Ideal germination temps are between 26 and 28 degrees Celsius (78 to 82 Fahrenheit). A nice constant temp will help germinate those super hots. I've found also that super hot chillies can take up to three weeks to germinate, so be patient!

    For me, yes! YMMV though. I find its easier to keep an eye on them in regards to how much water they're getting. Too much, and they quickly 'damp off', and go mouldy. Also find much better germination rates with the constant temperature a heated propogator gives.

    Bee armed? What is this? Is it collecting pollen from one flower on a object and then self pollinating other flowers on that pepper plant? I do this from time to time but did not know this is what it was called. Would you pleas post your jerk wet rub recipe...sounds like a great use for a few peppers ;)

    Thanks!

    Today's pickings. Ghost on the left naga morich on the right. Half gallon of juice behind for reference. This is literally half of what's left on my garden. Warm weather has helped here in the NE to extend the season. Hoping to get 3-4 weeks till I pick the rest. The longer they stay on the plant the hotter they get, been watering less so the plants wilt and the peppers extract all the nutriition which also makes them hotter.

    I am picking my butch t scorpion peppers as they mature....I have 3 other habanero varieties and enjoy them raw. This pepper is IMO unediable. My first mistake was taking a bit of it like the ther habs.....I felt like I was gonna hurl after I swallowed it..the the burn for about 3 min. Well my second mistake came again when I took an even smaller bite from the other side of the pepper...I could feel it going down into my stomach forming an ulcer lol. This plant is my biggest at 4 1/2' tall and about 3' wide, and you can see all of the small peppers forming. With the central Texas weather this plant should go till mid November.

    There is a reason this is the newest hottest pepper in the world....I would call myself a chili head but will not grow this pepper again...there is no reason for something this hot.


    Btw Bigfoot nice harvest! I don't harvest them all at once..usually pick up to four a day to munch on with meals. Great idea drying them and turning them I t flake. Do you find that they loose any heat or flavor when doing this?

    so envious of your pepper success! Here in Texas the summers get a bit 'toasty' so I have found that in my patio garden(apartment living...sigh) various tomatoes work out short term but with peppers I have only gotten Hatch/New Mexico and Yellow Cayenne's to grow worth anything.

    Granted, I think a house with yard where I can do planting would solve a lot of these issues. Kudos on the peppers...makes me want to make hot sauce again.

    Didn't have much success this year w the peppers in the pots as I've had in the past. Can't really say I paid much attention to them though, being that the garden really took off. Good soil, worms to aerate and water. That's the secret
