I have sprouts :)
I am excited, just got home from work and checked on my girls. I have 4 sprouts. I planted them in soil mix on 12 Jan. I really did nothing special. Placed soil in a 3" pot, buried the seeds about a 1/4 inch or so (maybe more) only watered three times. Kept cling rap on top and placed on a Back Pain type heating mat (I know, I just ordered two heating mats with a thermometer last night :) ) The room temp stayed at 68 deg, the heating mat process sucked has it had a two hour timer. The soil ranged from 68-86. Up and down. (Wife did not want to turn mat on while I was at work).
Anyway, I am happy as a kid in a candy store. I have 2 Bhut Jolokia, 1 Pumpkin Hab and 1 Moruga Trinidad Scorpion. Did I say I am happy and HOOKED...
Two questions from this rookie.
1. I know they go to light now and no heat mat, but should I go straight to light or leave on heat another day or two? I have a shop light with 2 T-12 bulbs.
2. The one Ghost that sprouted happened to be the one I put 2 seeds in and they BOTH sprouted. I know to pull the "weak" one, but when?
I will post picture after I drink a beer or three.
