Capsicum chinense strains require a great deal of attention during the germination process. Moisture and a constant and consistent heat range must be maintained. Place the seeds in sterile media and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, bright light and keep moist at all times. Seeds will germinate in 7 - 21 days. Transplant seedlings into pots and grow until there are 6 true leaves on the plant. Plant them directly into rich soil, 30” apart or into containers.
World's Hottest Pepper for now...
In 2013, the Carolina Reaper beat the Trinidad Scorpion "Butch T" pepper, to claim the record for being the World's Hottest Pepper. However, in 2017, two new contenders including the Dragon's Breath Pepper and Pepper X claimed to be hotter than 2.2 million Scoville units, though the heat of these peppers has not yet been officially proven nor have they received the official Guinness Record, so time will tell - learn more about these peppers here.
