There will be hot stuff, baby 

I just started germinating 6 Bhut Jolokia and 12 Tepin chile pepper seeds. The Tepin is sometimes referred to as "the hottest" and it may well be the second hottest, but the Bhut ("Ghost" in the Assamese language) Jolokia ("chile") is clearly the hottest in general, consistently ranking double that of other hot peppers and half that of pepper spray.

I placed the seeds in paper towels saturated with gibberellin @ 150 ppm in R/O water. They are in an 80 °F environment.

UPDATE 2/16 2 tepin have germinated - transfered to rockwool. Bhut abandoned.
