Chilli "Scores On The Doors"... So Far

Well, I tried a little experiment, and some Chillies went in on the day after Boxing Day (early, I know, but Santa brought me some grow-lights)…

It’s only Day 11, and things are looking very promising (especially since these are all Chinense, which can take a while to germinate)

The propagator seems to be maintaining a temp of about 24C when the central heating’s on. I’m not in during the day, so have no idea what it’s doing without background heat, LOL. Still, it can’t be getting too nippy, because it’s all go!

Carribean Antillais: 3/4 (75%)
White Habanero: 1/4 (25%)
Trinidad Scorpion 2012: 3/4 (75%)
Rocoto: 3/4 (75%)
Rocotillo: 2/4 (50%)
Devil’s Tongue: 4/4 (100%: Get In!)
Datil: 3/4 (75%)
Criolla Sella: A big fat 0/4 (moving swiftly on)
Chocolate Habanero Long: 4/4 (100%: Way-Hey)
Burkina yellow: 0/4 (nothing to see here, move along)
Cajamarca: 3/4 (75%)
Zimbabwe Bird: 4/4 (100%: Home made Tabasco here I come!)

So, by my reckoning thats just over 60% germination in less than 2 weeks. Still only at the seed leaf stage, so there’s plently of time for various catastrophes.

Planning on getting the lights rigged up in the next couple of days, and there’ll be no stopping me (or them) then!

And on a related note… One of my Fatalii’s (which is currently sitting in the bidet, LOL), the less trimmed one, seems to be budding… Stupid creature! Not sure whether to leave it or remove them?
