So who's taking the plunge this year and growing their own Chilli plants? My plan is to go from seed to sauce and make a nice hot sauce at the end of it. So far I have sown the following 

Piri piri

Cayenne 

Chocolate habanero 

Scotch bonnets 

Curry chilli

Padron peppers 

Yellow bhut jolokia

Fuego

I've got Birds eye seeds saved from last year

and plants overwintering

for exotic types have a look World of Chillies  somewhere near Manchester

They have seeds and plants  plus a very helpful website as to growing

plant feeding and pest control

They have been very helpful to me with plant ID

I'll be doing some in Feb, start in the prop and then into the light box. Will defo be growing Trinidad Moruga (my favourite) maybe some other super hots. Did about 8 types last year but thinking of doing 3 types with the Kratky method on big tubs.

Looks like you have a nice selection of heat and flavour there for 2021 season 👌

Will take a look, I watch chilli chump on YouTube,  he goes from the growing process all the way to fermenting the chillis ready for the hot sauce. Cant wait to see how these turn out.

A light box helps to really give them a headstart during these months, as soon as they sprout I put them in a polystyrene box thats lined with tin foin and massive 6500k lamp.

I have something similar that I hope will work, at the minute it's on it's side so that the main T5s are an inch off the propagator lid

I’m kicking my seeds off this weekend.

The key secret is clingfilm.

That is all.

They should be fine if the T5 are in the blue spectrum.

I grow about 10 types but not from seed plus I don’t eat them grow them for the cockatoo he loves them 

I like hot birds, but not that type:no:

Yes, I might just have a go this year.  Not into fancy stuff but do enjoy the occasional jalapeno on a double sandwich.

Can I grow some??

I live in a first floor flat, no balcony. I do have windows facing N,S,E,W.

Yes, easy. Try a few different ones but for ease of growing then apache is pretty simple.
