Seed germination time has started! So we’d been doing a bit of our own hot sauces for the past little bit, trying to get some practise. With planting season starting (gotta germinate!) we’re starting a bunch of various pepper seeds to hopefully grow some over the spring/summer. We grabbed some seeds from peppernorth.com, and are starting on, hopefully, germinating, and then growing indoors, and planting to grow for the season. Let’s see if I can not kill a bunch of baby peppers while trying to germinate and grow superhots indoors without any kind of real gear!
- High quality H2O
Our attempts involve the following seeds:
- Carolina Reaper
- Bird’s Eye Chili
- Scotch Bonnet
- Chocolate Bhutlah
So the gist is, we got a set of Coconut Coir pots, and some potting soil I had kicking around from last year.
I filled the pots, dug holes ~ 1/4in deep, and dropped the seeds in them, covered. Spray with distilled water to moisten.
Covered with clear plastic, sat on a shelf upstairs (where it’s warm), pictures to follow on that when I get the lighting etc setup after they hopefully sprout, but updates to follow.
Maintain 70+F temperature, and hopefully they sprout in a week! We’ll see!
Both stay, and grow strong, little peppers.
