Calling Armageddon......

peppernoviceFebruary 23, 2013

Dear sir,

I have heard you talk about your face melting bhut jolokia peppers for some time now. I received some of your seeds from ottawapepper. They are labeled bhut jolokia....armageddon 2011. I have made 2 attempts now to try and germinate some seeds. I have so far been unsuccessful. This is the only pepper seed I haven't been able to germinate. I typically soak them in warm water for about an hour, then place them into potting soil. I put them in a sealed container on top of my hydro farms heat mat. I have the digital thermostat set at 87 degrees.
As I said, this is the only seed(out of about 20 varieties) that I can't seem to germinate. Do you have any suggestions? I was really looking forward to sampling your "world famous" ghost peppers this year.

Wow Tim, sorry you're having trouble with seeds I forwarded.

It's getting late to start Bhuts. I just got back from floating on a boat in the Caribbean (life is tough), give me a day and I'll send some of my Bhut seed your way.

I appreciate the offer Bill. I still have some bhut seeds from last year. I have about 4 seedlings right now. I just wanted to grow out some of the seeds from Armageddon, because he talks about how hot his are. I just wanted to have a side by side comparison. I have plenty of seeds from my plants last year, so save your seeds for someone who doesn't have any. Thanks again for the offer though.

Welcome back to the "Cold North" Bill! How was the trip, where did you go? Did you go all inclusive? :)

I send you an email yesterday in regards to the Twilights.

Talk soon!

No sir. I haven't heard from him. I just assumed he was busy. I have the bhut seedlings from my own seed stock. I just wanted to try his. I didn't know if it was environmental , or if his strain was just that much hotter. It's okay, I was just curious. Glad to hear you made it back from vacation safely. I hope you had a great time.
