    I started germination on these in the middle of Feb! As soon as I got my room dialed in I put them in there alongside my CP's and let them rock out under the lights until we started getting all that hot weather at the beginning of May. From there I transitioned them outside and segregated them by themselves. (for seed production) There they have been cruising along enjoying this dry and hot summer!

    I will have plenty of pods to send to you this year if you would like to give em a go

    I just had a peek at mine and woohoo, Ive got beau-coup fruit.... largest Bhut is about 1.5 inches and all ugly and gnarly looking....
    The Hawaiian plant's fruit is looking right as right can be.

    The Thai looking plant has ummm Thai looking peppers, long skinny things LOL

    But both are full of fuit :-)

    cool....I'll let you know, but I may not need any :-)

    Jamie's website mentions cutting them back and bringing them in for the winter since they are perrenials... wonder how well this works

    wierd....I was reading up on how to overwinter my bhuts on a web page last night as well! I opted for another plan. I am going to repot in a 5 gallon bucket and throw a 400 watt hps on them. See if they power through with fruit.

    omg they are looking so evil LOL



    wish they would start turning color though.... getting worried I got them started too late
    I am getting some color, but it doesnt look like the other pics i see online



    most pics i see is the green then a nice yellow, then bright orange, then finally flame red...

    (both pics are of same plant btw)
    (one grower said they sounded like the Chocolate Bhut Jolokia, but I didnt have pics at the time to show him. I didnt order the Chocolate, nor was they listed where I got the seed... sooo I dunno. It is a natural varaiant... maybe I just got ummm "lucky" LOL)



    evil looking i tell ya!!!!! LOL

    A plastic "tent" using wire/sticks & plastic or glass sheets set over the plants (not touching) will provide the heat & 'extended summer' the plants may need, & ripen the pods & turn up their heat nicely.
    That, or it will cook them to death!

    Just a thought!
    Hope all is well there!

    [Oh yea, if they are like many other plants, bringing them indoors & putting them under some hot-high intensity grow lights with a longer light period, will get them to grow more & extend your growing season. Cutting the light back again will encourage more blooming & fruiting too. Some plants can deal with this & respond well, while others slowly decline. But if you don't mind a little work, it can be well worth the effort.]
    If nothing else, bringing them into a frost-free environment may provide you with a head start in the late winter/early spring.

    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    Butch,
    I plan on taking you up on that!
    Just don't be serving any of those peppers!
