pepper plants will pollinate themselves, you dont need 2 seperate plants to produce peppers. to maximize my crop i take a q tip and go from blossom to blossom and help them along. you get less flowers that fall due to not getting pollinated.

Got seeds from one of the three places that I ordered from.


If anybody wants any seedling of any of the varieties I am doing let me know. Most come in 10 seeds per pack. I put 2 seeds per starter pot and snip the weaker of the two. I am going to take the strongest 2 and the other ones can be sold. I will trade for beer.

Just remember superhots are more difficult to grow than standard peppers so don't expect to chuck them in a pot and forget about it and expect to get any peppers. The plant will grow but won't produce many peppers. Proper soil and watering makes a huge difference!

When do you start them? I tried growing Ghost peppers a couple of years ago and they grew but didn't produce peppers in time before getting killed off from frost.

I have seeds to try again this year.

I am going to start them in 2 weeks. I put heat pads under them until they sprout to keep the soil at 85*. After that I pull the heat pad and just keep lights on a timer. From what I have found the hotter the pepper the longer they take to grow. If you can overwinter the plant indoors and put outside again the following year you will produce a lot more peppers. I have 3 plants chopped way back and put in smaller pots that I grew in Colorado and brought home. I'm hoping they survive.

That's about what I was thinking. I'll try to get mine started sometime between Christmas and New Years.

I'm going to log everything in a book for future use.





Peet moss starters





Soaking the seeds



Each one of these trays completely soaked up 10.5 cups of water to hydrate and expand the pucks.



Ill put lights up this week at some point. They have a ton of natural light that will work perfect right now for this stage.

Got all 271 seeds planted last night. That is a pain in the ass pulling them out of the cups of water individually with tweezers. After I planted them in the peet pucks I lightly covered them with vermiculite. The soil is staying nice and warm with the heating pads under the trays. I'm hoping to start seeing sprouts in a week. Some of the superhots may take up to a month to pop up.

Do you want plants or peppers? I am going to have a ton of extra plants that I won't be using. You are more than welcome to help yourself to my garden this summer also. I think I got plenty to go around. :Sonicjay:

I have 95 starters with 271 seeds planted total. I will definitely be slimming the crop! :Sonicjay: the only rule I have is if you come pick peppers you have to sample the goods before you leave. :Teehee:

As long as there is a glass of milk nearby

I'll also return with salsa
