I have two Bhut Jolkia Pepper plants that are blooming,I live in southeast Texas and its susposed to get cold here within the next few days. I would really like to save the blooms.I was wondering how much light and what type of light would be needed To keep them alive. They are in pots so they can be moved anytime needed i just dont want to cause any unnecessary stress to the plants. This is my first experience with these type of peppers. Thanks for any help in advance.

From 30-50 watts per square foot of plant crown of fluorescent or HID will work to bring them to fruit.
