Anyone here had or is growing this so-called extremely hot pepper, the hottest pepper in the world? When I went to the Oahu Urban Garden Center big annual plant sale last February, the vendor was selling it for ten dollar a plant and it was laden with big, bright red, wrinkly Ghost Pepper, which is another name for this chili. A couple rotten fruits were on the ground that was to be discarded, so I just took that. Some of the fruits, too, were ripped open, and people--including me--had a chance to smell it; and it was deeply pungent, slightly irritating my nose that makes me want to sneeze. Even though it was expensive, I should have bought the full grown plant because the seeds that I planted right away are taking too long to reach maturity. It sprouted quickly, though; less than two weeks.
So far, I have separated the seedlings and individually planted them on their own pots couple days ago. This morning, one of the plant's upper leaves was cut by either a slug or a snail; I should have put more Diatomaceous earth on the pots.
This is how the more early robust seedlings look:
and this is how the small late seedlings look:
I'll probably give some of this plants to friends and family. Should I tell them how hot it is? It's too bad there is no fruits; it's perfect for tomorrow's April Fool's Day, he he he.
