Ghost Pepper or Imposter
I bought some bhut jolokia seeds online and planted them in early May. I planted 5 seeds and only one actually survived although all 5 did sprout at different intervals but the other 4 mysteriously disappeared after sprouting. The thriving plant however has been growing very quickly and flowers on 4 of the points of the plant. The flowers are yellow bell types that open during the day for a few hours and close quickly, you can kind of see one of them in the pic. The plant itself is growing in a sprawl instead of up and I don't know if that is normal as these are my first attempts at this pepper type. The leaves are thick, waxy, kind of ovoid and have almost a heart shape at the end. I am worried because these leaves do not look like typical bhut jolokia and I am wondering if they change or if I was sold a completely different pepper plant and if so what is it? LOL Any help would be appreciated!
