I could use some info that would help my plants. They are so slow to grow. Any advice on growing would be great.

You've perked my curiosity as I like the hot stuff.. I found this:
http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index...

Now, where did you find the seeds? I want some!

When did you start the seeds and describe where they're growing?

I didn't get the chance to till a garden this year, but didn't want to miss out completely, so aside from the "upsy downsy and topsy turvy" (waste of money) I have a plastic childs pool with drainage in the bottom, filled with Miracle Grow. It's housing a monster tomato plant and green onions that are doing pretty well.

Good luck on those peppers-- tell me how they end up doing and where I can get some seeds.. bet they'll make some killer salsa!

Fertilize with Miracle Grow mixed with water, and sprinkle bone meal around the plant every 2-4 wks. Mix it in with the soil round the plant. It's the phosphorus in bone meal your plants need.
Hot peppers have to have bone meal. If the leaves look crinkly between the veins, it's bone meal they lack; they should be flat and bone meal will fix that.

Sorry it took so long to get back too you. I ordered my seeds online. Cost me 8 bucks for 12 seeds. I sarted my seeds late. It was in March sometime. I only have one decent plant now but it seems to be coming around. It looks like it's getting ready to bloom. It's only about a foot and a half tall though but it has about 12 Blooms ready to pop out. I'll get back too you after awhile and let you know how it's going. I forgot to say I have it in a pot so I can bring it inside this fall if I need to.

Thanks for the info. I've not heard of using bone meal. I will sure give it a try.

Ok, I eat the 'green sauce' at a Mexican restaurant if that gives you any idea of my tolerance of 'heat'.. and the following salsa recipe isn't meant for tortilla chip-dipping, but eating with tacos--and I don't mean hamburger meat, taco bell seasoning and such..lol I mean slow cook you some pork, shred it..refried beans, rice and warm tortillas would make an authentic taco, and put your salsa to good use.

5-6 large Tomatillos, peeled & rinsed
1 clove of garlic
half an onion
1-2 Ghost peppers (I'd normally use around 10 chili japones)

Place these in a pot and cover with water.
Bring to a boil and remove from heat.

Scoop out your ingredients into a blender.
Give it a quick spin or chop.
Add liberal Cilantro and salt, and again a quick spin or chop.

Taste it. You can always add the water from your boil if you need to thin or dilute your salsa, or boil more Tomatillos and add to weaken the heat.

Make a 'taco' with beans, rice, and meat on warm tortillas and spoon your salsa on and enjoy!

Let me know about your pepper growth, if you make a salsa, and how much heat they pack!

I saved the website you gave me, too. They have lots of peppers..

Yikes! A little would go a loooooong way for me, I'd be scared too, lmao!

"Recognized as the world's hottest pepper by Guinness Book of World Records, the Bhut Jolokia (Ghost Pepper) is in a class by itself. Measured at over ONE MILLION Scoville heat units, the Bhut Jolokia is deadly hot, nearly twice as hot as the famous Red Savina. Hotter than you can imagine."

The Serrano is only 2500-5000 on the Scoville heat unit and I've eaten those.

I would suggest a PIECE of the Ghost Pepper LOL

Or just try my recipe using the Chile Japones to warm ye self up!

I tell you what, you grow em' and sell me one.. I'm dying to try it and see if I can handle it.

You should save one pepper from the plant and dry to yield more seeds!

I was wanting to dry most of them if I get any that is. I would be happy to share. Just soak the dried chili in warm water then it's ready for cooking. Wish me luck!

Hello WiseGal. Just wanted to update you on my peppers. As of now There are about 10 nice inch to inch and a half peppers. Full of blooms but I'm afraid time is running out for the blooms. I would like to get 8 dollars for a hole pepper. I know that sounds a little high but thats what I had to pay for just the seeds. All I would like to do is get my money back. They are still green and don't really know how long it takes for them to rippen. If you still want one I would be happy to sell you one. After tonight I won't be on a computer until Saturday but will check for a response then.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
